    I have had the opportunity of giving these cables a bit more burn in period.

    Oh my giddy aunt! Or Oh my God! As you prefer....

    Now the speaker cables I was using weren't shabby, being OCC based. These cables give a total coherence to the sound. What I mean by this is that the precision of image placement, the depth and focus of the performance is exquisite, the balance to the soundstage across the complete frequency range is so well defined that it makes you wonder how this can be.
    The bass has more 'flesh' to it, the vocals are real people. They make you realise that well produced vinyl used outstanding gear to produce the sound.

    I shall be very sorry to hand these back.

    Arh Abbey road cables piss poor build quality and very average sound I feel I know where these are going I suspect not too far from you!

    Yes I have made a few Graphene cables with various constructions and conductors, still I feel they are best as conductors.

    Happy to compare with you when you finish your next pair no problem at all.

    This is the start of the journey welcome to where the fun starts!

    I'll have a look round for Graphene conductors.

    If you think 5mm individual cable size per conductor then the actual conductor diameter/ribbon/foil that does the sharpe end of the work is likely to under 1mm the rest being dielectric/various outer layers then a combined total of 15mm for balanced interconnect is ludicrous in size.t

    The graphebpne requires these types of supporting items to really make it work the way it should, in the far east they have been experimenting with hybrid conductors on high voltage transmission lines to a good degree of success

    It took a while to gets to grips with current realistic graphene technology that REALLY does generate a no cable listening experience although that genuine,y cost well over four figures for just the raw material then you have to really learn on how to make it work for you and it takes more than a few tries crossed words and many a readjusted test rig lol

    It is the future without question just not quite at the moment looking forward to my 3D printer churning out graphene impregnated circuit boards in my designs

    Also battery tech will improve greatly too it has many uses but honing them spit on for each application will take some time

    Anyway sorry I have diverted your thoughts apologies again nice work Oli

    No, it's quite alright. I'm alway eager for more information.

    I appreciate it

    Thankfully, the Dream speaker cables have landed and the new owner has sent me a pic of their partnering equipment.

    Very grateful for the pic and the initiatial feedback which is as I hoped it would be.

    Excellent

    Not to criticise some absolute dream kit but is the left speaker not somewhat obstructed by the equipment rack positioning?

    Just seems strange to have speakers and kit worth more than most cars and not optimise the layout to extract maximum performance??

    As noted, gorgeous kit all the same.

    - Mark Travis Phono Stage - Gold Lion 12ax7's, Tung-Sol 6X4 - AD Audio SUT - Pioneer N-30K
    - Behringer DEQ 2496 - Quad 63's - REL T3 (sometimes)

    - Audio Technica LP5 - AT440mlb - Musical Paradise MP 303 Class D - Jolida Glass FX III - Raytheon 5755 Yellow Print - Beresford Bushmaster II
    - EAR834p Clone - Ei 12ax7's, Sylvania 12au7 in V3 - Cocktail Audio/Novafidelity X12 - 15" Paper Drivers in Tannoy Cabs (lows) - Custom crossover into Tannoy HPD Monitors (highs) - REL T3

    Might pull it out for listening?
