Has large airy soundstage and made the mids sound thin but well detailed and was rather bass light. When I first plugged the new SPC cable in it took a while adjusting, I had to second guess I was actually upgrading for an hour over the blue cable but the SPC certainly makes the mids thicker and expresses better bass impact.

If you ever get a chance to try one of these mystery cables I recommend doing so....

 





 


Yes they're, I can get them for about $1.00 a pair.

If I remember correctly, the blue cable was copper, but man, it just could not stay still. Might have been a mix of copper and silver, but I'm pretty sure it wasn't pure silver. 

 

I bought a whole bag of Heir tips as well, they're great and have a large soundstage.

That cable gave me absolute hell at first, the hoops were moulded for ants ears!
I took a lighter to them waving it over lightly and moulded them out, then it was a lot better.
I had problems too, I agree about the cable metals, you wouldn't think it'd be silver but it sounds really crisp and clean.
I don't understand why exactly.

Isn't waving a lighter around a cable a bit risky?

:cool:

The memory part certainly looks much better, but how did you stop the cable from flopping around everywhere?

I know what you mean, it has a coil in it that cannot be removed about half way which makes it spring around.
I didn't use them on the go, mainly just stationary so it didn't bother me.

I see. 

Personally I liked the brown clothed cable and I feel like it sounded the best and it lost it's magic with the other 2 cables. Charles told me it is a silver/copper crystal mono cable whatever that means.
