This came as no surprise as I already own a pair of the Spotfire interconnects.





    Oliver said they require circa 100 hours running in before they reach their optimum level. I would say mine have 50 odd hours on them at the moment so please bear that in mind.

    I bought a pair of Spotfire interconnects last May and Iíve been extremely impressed with them. When I saw Oliver was making Spotfire speaker cables I contacted him immediately.
    Sadly, as most of you will be aware Oliver had a motorcycle accident and wasnít in any fit state to make any cables. He asked if I could contact him a month later and see how he was feeling then. I did just that and even though he wasnít feeling 100% he said heíd make the cables for me. An order was placed and within 10 days I had the cables in my hand.

    My previous speaker cables were Chord Co Signatureís (the MK1 version) which Iíve had since 2014 which and been very happy with them.
    At first you arenít quite sure what the differences/improvements are but itís not long before they start to show their true colours.
    The soundstage is a lot wider with space and depth between the instruments. Instruments have a more authentic sound and you can feel the way they were struck. Itís hard to describe but itís all there in front of you.

    I agree with James @jimbo with his and his wifeís findings (by chance I contacted Oliver last week to give him an update on how I was getting along with the Spotfireís and I used the same analogy as @jimbo I too found the change from the Chordís to the Spotfire cables similar to the move from MM carts to a (very) decent MC cart. Everything has a move real/authentic sound plus the presentation is more relaxed and easier to listen to. Iíve been amazed at the extra detail the Spotfireís have retrieved.

    Going back to the Chord Signatures they initially impressed but itís not long before you start missing the Spotfireís.
    Iíve now sold the Chord Signatures and Iíve also placed an order for another set of Interconnects. So I think thatís the best recommendations I can give.

    One last thing. Oliver has been a pleasure to deal with. Even though heís still far from fully recovered from his accident heís got back to emails quickly and turned around the order very quickly.

    Cheers
    Rob

    PS: I haven't connected the Shielding cables yet so can't comment on whether they make a difference or not.
    Thanks mate!

    And we go again!

    Macca's cables are now in the midst of construction. Still waiting for the bits to finish of the two Naim cables I'm currently building which is frustrating but again, great patience from the guys. Thanks again!

    A sneak peak
