Just when we think that nothing more is possible from the ‘red book’ CD standard, well, the arrival of the dCS Vivaldi was pretty mind boggling, the bar is raised yet again. This time through connectivity.
Audiomica produce some remarkable analogue and digital cables. The results from Vivaldi and other high performance systems have been raised through use of their cables. Audiomica have just launched two new AES / EBU cables that actually take the performance of high performance CD transports and DACs to a whole new level.
CAINIT Excellence (from £600) and ORMUS Consequence (from £1,050) each provide the new level of performance, with the Consequence cable providing a lift in transparency over the Excellence version. Both these cables are available as pairs, for dual AES use, for a significant saving.
