    About the Sound;

    I will compare the Balanced Upgrade Cable with the Stock cable of the Pinnacle P2 and have burn-in this cable for at least 100 Hours.

    The first thing I have noticed is that the balanced upgrade cable adds additional body to the sound and bass better bass extension than the stock cable.

    As for speed, smoothness, depth and controllability, I found the upgrade cable a bit more mature sounding then the stock cable.

    The two cables are also successful in vocals. The upgrade cable sounds warmer and more emotional with female vocals than the stock one.

    Both cables are successful by presenting instruments, but the upgrade cable wins when it comes to clarity and instrument accentuation / emphasis.

    The stock cable sounds a bit aggressive in upper midrange, while the upgrade cable has some aggressiveness it changes the game with its better control over the upper midrange.

    The two cables have a nearly similar performance in the treble region. The main difference is in the treble extension where the upgrade cable shows a better performance. It has also better control over the upper treble region and has also more micro details.

    There are also some differences for soundstage presentation. The increasing of depth and width while using the upgrade cable over the stock cable is noticeable. Also the instrument placement benefits from the upgrade cable.
