Silver cables

Denon and silver cablesThe Denon AVC-X3700H sounded great as we watched and listened to one of the classic ‘Transformers’ series. I was fortunate to sit in the central viewing seat and, able to hear how good the performance was. The idea was to see if by changing audio cables, would the system sound better. Van-den-Hul supplied the wires used with the design and, they certainly gave an excellent sounding performance. But, we had decided to try in the system, a power cable and silver loudspeaker cables from Perkune audiophile cables. 


I was again at ‘Garso Namai’, located Kauno g 31, Vilnius, Lithuania, and owned by Lucas Svedas. Lukas is always willing to listen to cables and test components. Lukas is still ready to help any person with their audio needs. And, if you visit ‘Garso Namai’ you are well on the way to improving your listening pleasure!

We listened to the system until we were able to determine a bass line for measurement and then changed to the Perkune cables. The cable we were testing was 1.5-meter Slimline power cable, a pair of three-meter Silver loudspeaker cables and 1.0-meter Silver speaker cable. And, these cables designed for home cinema applications.


Denon amplifierIt is always interesting when changing audio cables because one just never knows what to expect and what results will be. But, in this case, it was easy to hear improvements in the sound from the system. The first thing we were aware of was the increased dynamics in the sound. It was like somebody had opened a door and we were right in the middle of the action. The clarity improved, and the detail and micro details filled the room, and this was wonderful to experience.

Everything became alive and involving. And, it was amazing to feel the fullness of the presentation, as everything was happening so fast. Maybe ‘Electrified’ would be a better term to use in this instance. But regardless of the choice of words, the difference that a set of cables made was a big surprise. If a person has spent a few thousand Euros on a system, then a few hundred more is well justified for the sound improvements you will get!
