    Sorry for the late reply to this one as I had Jamie's cables last week and a short review was required . Work definitely gets in the way of my music pleasure
    I was sent two cables , one shorter than the other , both of which fitted very nicely between my preamp and power amp .
    Firstly , I listened to the shorter of the two . These interconnects were pleasingly open in my system , with plenty of detail . However , they were a bit soft sounding with a noticeable lack of focus and bite . The midrange was slightly recessed and bass was not as tight as I would have liked . I'm not a bass head and prefer the bass to drive the music rather than vibrate the furniture and have the wife knocking on my door telling me to turn it down . So the bass was certainly good enough for me in that respect .
    Where would I use this cable ? In a system which was overly bright with a prominent top end or an overly forward presentation . I think this cable would do a very good job here .
    If this was the only cable which I owned I could certainly live with it in my system and be quite happy .

    Next to be plumbed into my system was the longer cable .
    Now this was more like it for me These cables had much better focus than the first . Nice tight bass and better leading edges . Again , probably more detail with nicely presented mids which brought voices , in particular , further into the room . The top end was also better than the first with instruments sounding more realistic .
    TBH when I checked my notes I didn't write much about this cable because I was too busy enjoying the music . This cable really suited my system and I really liked what it did . Nice one Jamie .
    Obviously I can only comment on these cables within the context of my system , my room , and my ears . So YMMV
    Regards
    Brian
