What I don't understand in EA cables is the way they determine the price of a cable. Take the Vogue line for example:
  • Mestro is made of copper 99$
  • Virtuoso is made of silver 149$
  • Grandioso is a mix of copper and silver 199$
So they have taken a Virtuoso and replaced 2 wires out of 4 with copper which is less expensive than silver. That made the Grandioso which is more expensive than the Virtuoso!!! I'm the only one who finds that this does not make sense?

Virtuoso is made out of silver plated copper... it has a copper core. I imagine that the 2 wires of silver employed in the grandioso equates to a larger amount of silver than that of which is used in the plating process.

IMO, Silver.
I use the Bravados with Thor II cable.

Regards.

As Effect Audio would ask, what are you looking for...more bass, a little more sparkle in the treble, more soundstage? I'm using the Eros II+ with my Bravados.

"Grandioso" is a pure silver and copper cable hybrid hence the price. I hope this explains:sunglasses:

I also found the values and quality of the cables interesting. I will be receiving Vogue series cables soon and will write a review. :ksc75smile:

I recently ordered the copper and SPC Vogue cables to see if there's any effect on the Solaris low end.
