6moons Review of Zu Cables

post #1 of 63
Thread Starter 
a new review of the Zu cables by 6moons writer Frederic Beudot, with emphasis on the top of the line interconnect varial and bok/mother power cords. i especially like the final paragraph:

If I try and sum it up, all Zu cables tested during the past few weeks clearly belong in the neutral, detailed and faithful category - no question or ambiguity there. What the top cables offer in addition is a sense of transparence, elegance, refinement and fluidity that while not absent from Bok and Gede is clearly less obvious than with the Varial and Mother. When one considers that accessing the next level up of elusive qualities would require jumping very high into such brands as Stealth, JPS Lab or Crystal Cable, with a price tag thousands of dollars more than Zu's best, it helps putting the 'hardly' higher price of Mother and Varial into perspective - they are incredible bargains, period. But as with all top-line products, their little brothers will deliver 90 to 95% of their performance for less money.

The real secret of HiFi is that magic resides in those last 5% and that with a truly neutral and revealing system, this magic will be very easy to hear and enjoy.

6moons is not a reputable review site. Are there any other reviews for these cables?

good news. i removed you from my ignore list, as i now find your fanatical insistence in anti-cable propoganda less annoying than comical. although i am sure i will tire of it soon and put you back on the list.

honestly, have you ever heard a high-end system. because there really are better things out there than ipods and radio shack cables. and many people have heard them.

Nobody cares about who is on your ignore list. You really need to get a life.

I asked for other reviews of the cables. I didn't even click on the link, I don't know if they are $5 or $5,000. 6moons is not reputable, their reviews are BS. They're as bad as Sterophile.

vcoheda, they're just angry, bored, frustrated kids man!

They can't argue or converse intelligently.

Here's my advice:

Here's my advice:


When trying to prove someone else is a "troll" ad hominem really doesn't help your case.

I know that nothing can be "proven" on the internet, so I wouldn't try. I was just offering some helpful advice.

I think you meant to say "nothing can be proven which has no supporting evidence"

There you go again, jumping to conclusions and putting words in peoples mouths. Eventually.

By my personal definition of proof, I don't take anything on a forum as proof.

My definition of proof concerns the "scientific method".

Yet you believe in cable theories. How ironic.

A internet forum is a type of media, just like books, journals, chatboards, word-of-mouth, TV, etc. All which have previously been avenues for the spreading of finds from scientific research.

The evidence found from the scientific method can be posted on an online forum.

Also, it is illogical to discard evidence purely because of the media type it was provided through.

I remeber a HeadFier with an absolutely brilliant statement in his sig, I forgot his name but it was something like:

"Don't argue with stupid people: they drag you down to their level and beat you with experience."

Yet again with the incorrect allegations.

As I have done previously, I have a challenge which you will either ignore or fail at:

Please show me proof that I believe in cable theories.

Or was that a false assumption?



Further, a question for you:

Are you implying that you believe everything you read on an internet forum if the poster claims to have followed the scientific method?

The ironing is delicious.
