Pros: good value, innovative product details, soundstage and attack
Cons: pressure sensitive outer coating
I am using the Forest cable as a replacement for a simple 75Ohm video cable to connect my CD player to an external DAC.
One of the main reasons to choose an Audioquest cable is the cold welded connection from the cable’s conductor to the plug what physically reduces reflections. So I was expecting a change in the signal quality. I think it worked! By reducing the DAC’s afford of error correction the analog output improved a lot:
Now there is more air around the body of acoustical guitars, piano sounds are more sharp with added sustain and bass sound gain a little more attack.
The cable’s materials are wisely picked:
Small and slim but stable RCA plugs with the signal direction recommendation printed on it.
A silver plated, high quality copper conductor with formed PE dialectic
and good quality shielding using a special process to avoid interferences.
The only con on the cable is the pressure sensitive outer coating what additionally seem the be made of PVC? –well, there is room for improvements in every product.
