    Default Anyone got experience of colin wonfor’s LS25 and atlas ascent 2 mkii speaker cable ?

    I’m using the latter atlas ascent right now. Thinking of trying LS25. I realise its going to be system dependent but anyone out there tried both and what are your thoughts ?

    Well, oddly enough, I have. They are both very fine cables, and possibly dependant on your kit, no value in changing, but certainly I prefer the LS25, I find it more open, better imaging, and really great bass, both in power and control. The Atlas darker sounding, but great with textures, perhaps giving it the edge on simpler, slower music.

    I guess it depends what area you are trying to improve, I have found power cables to have the most dramatic impact, but others do not find any worthwhile difference with any cable at all.

    If you are in a position to, give the L25 a try, comes with 30 day return period.

    Thanks for the reply Marcus.

    I wonder if I’m just chasing my tail here. I have power chord upgrades and use an isotek sigmas gii too.

    I have very eclectic tastes , I play jazz, trip hop, progressive house, folk, indie, blues, rock and classical.

    I’m using ls3/5a and sub setup and a lyngdorf amp (solid state powered DAC)

    I get a very big soundstage , that I’m pleased with but I read about systems where they describe the holographic 3 D soundstage. Mine is more like a wall of sound with depth.

    Im thinking I should try something with solid cores for comparison.

    The LS25 certainly has a deeper soundstage, but as mentioned, the LS50 is meant to be on its way, but who knows what the price will be.

    There is also the Atlas Mavros to consider, again, very pricy.

    I’m afraid I think you are wasting your time expecting a cable upgrade/change to deliver the results you are hoping for. I don’t know what front end you are using but that would be the first thing I would look at. Secondly, the Lyngdorf amps I have heard have not been strong in the terms of ‘holographic imaging’. Finally, if you want really strong imagery you have to set your speakers up VERY carefully in terms of room position and alignment. Do not expect the powerful DSP processing some Lyngdorf amps have to iron out huge frequency response anomalies and maintain a holographic image.
