Reviews by leading professionals for you

reviews by leading professionals

This is the definition of a review as given by Wikipedia and it really is an honest evaluation of the performance of the component under test.

There are so many contributing factors to be taken into account when performing reviews and it often takes a long time to carry out a complete analysis of the performance of the component. The overall performance is exactly what is required as this is to what a customer will relate to if he is thinking of purchasing such an item.

A word of Caution

I have read many reviews in the past and never understood how they can say one thing when in reality the component is not up to the specification claimed. I have in fact tested certain cables and these certainly fall short of a spine-tingling review given by a leading magazine in the US for instance. I am saying that a person has to test every item in the comfort of their own home to be able to evaluate the item correctly.

The customer

It is always better to let the customer tell hisor her story because that’s what this business is really all about – the customer. As I receive reviews the review will be added to the database and any member of the public is more than welcome to contact the author of the review at any time for more information.

Below is information abut the cables that I use for the assembly  of Perkune audiophile cables.

The Interconnect Cable

It has taken me many years of research and trial and error to discover these cables and  as the saying goes “Where there is a will there is a way” and my will was to find a set of audiophile cables and produce an Audio interconnect cable which, was the best value for money in the industry today. The Cable that I used for the interconnect is actually  a cable used for recording studio microphone cable and has a completely flat frequency response. The cable has minimal resistance and capacitance and this is one of the reasons why it makes your audio system sound so good. The cable is made in Italy and was designed for recording studio high end performance.

Technical Specification ~

Capacitance: conductor to shield: < 200 pF/meter, ~60 pF/foot. Capacitance: shield L to shield R: < 90 pF/meter, ~25 pF/foot. Resistance: core < 0.07 Ohms/meter. Resistance: shield < 0.08 Ohms/meter. Inductance: shield < 0.02mH /total length. Inductance: core ~ 0.01mH /total length. Frequency response: 0-10MHz flat: perfect. Square wave response: no distortion from 5Hz up to 2MHz. Channel separation L-R: < 135 dB at 0.77 V RMS, 20 Hz-20kHz, for 2.2 M. better than 140 dB for 1M.

The Loudspeaker Cable

The Loudspeaker cable that I use is produced in Italy and shipped to Lithuania. This is where it is cut to length, terminated and undergo’s a three day cable burn in and an antistatic procedure. OFC red copper is used and the outer covering has an additional outer shrink-wrap layer, which provides for the ‘AirGap’ cushioning. The cables are terminated with 24K direct gold-plated banana connections which are supplied from Germany and  the ultimate quality of sound is retained.

The Intro Loudspeaker Cable

The cable is produced in China and shipped to Lithuania where it is cut to length and terminated with are terminated with 24K direct gold-plated banana connections which are supplied from Germany. After this the cable undergo’s a three day cable burn in and antistatic procedure.

Conductors: O.F.C Red Copper ~ Insulation: Vinyl ~ Outer sheath: Plastic shrink-wrap ~ Cable Diameter: 6.0 mm ~ Conductor size: 2.5 mm2 (13 AWG) ~ Conductor number: 7 strand with each strand containing 3

2 x 0.125 mm (three of which ate ‘Tinned’) ~ Resistance: 0.02 Ohms/meter ~ Capacitance: 75 pF/meter 

I discovered this cable 5 years ago and really loved it. I also supplied this cable to many members of the Tannoy group (worldwide) and all results were positive. This cable will now be added for the 2018 range.

I would like to state that I am not connected to any person who is doing a review on any of my cables. If you have enjoyed reading this ‘Review’ page then please share with friends and colleagues – Thank you
