RE: Raw was perhaps the wrong word to use

It is true that Crimson cable can make Audio Note cable sound a bit mellow (or creamy) -- even Pallas, Sogon, and Sootto, which can be a surprise if you're used to considering AN cable fairly neutral. Crimson is copper cable, so the sound is not bright, just clear. (I think I'm allowed to make this comment because I sell both Audio Note and Crimson!)

And I agree with Mac that while Crimson has this effect in an Audio Note system too, it is a matter of taste: it changes the AN system in ways that may not please all AN fans, clearing the air a bit. I use one length of Crimson between my AN digital transport and AN dac, then AN cable the rest of the way. Crimson speaker cable sounds exactly like Crimson IC's...because it's exactly the same cable. And Crimson electronics sound just like the cable.
