High Density speaker cables - Component of the year 2018

Customer review. Quantum Serial Number 003:

My experience with the QUANTUM: ‘an extremely agreeable high-end CD transport of high musicality’

Last week I received my carefully packed QUANTUM CD transport from Tiberiu Vicol at Vicol-Audio. After unwrapping the QUANTUM I was immediately impressed by its solid structure with beautiful finish. It renders the passion and craftsmanship of Tiberiu in all aspects. However, what is also important, how does it sound? To find out I connected the QUANTUM with an AudioQuest Coffee digital coax cable to my Chord 2Qute DAC, which transfers its analogue signal to an Accuphase E-560 Class-A integrated amplifier. During my first listening session I was immediately caught by the lifelike and formidable transparency of voices. Also the balance between instruments and voices was perfect. The soundstage and level of detail was impressive, as I never experienced that before with an Accuphase DP-500. Good life recordings really sound as if the artists are playing in front of you. It is just the music in a complete black background. The QUANTUM can easily compete with CD transports exceeding 10 K€. I think that Tiberiu build a real masterpiece and I am happy and proud to own one.

High Density speaker cables got a second review again in dutch HTFORUM.

High Density speaker cables got a review in dutch HTFORUM.

Here is a google translation to English from conclusion part.

¨The Vicol cable is a highly defined spatial open cable, with a nice depth of sound. He is also very honest and homogeneous, and also has the cable has a high resolution and a wide dynamic range. Furthermore, the cable surprising properties that you back hear in the music, a top 40 song really sounds like a disco (though it is 20 years since I was there every week worked) The music dies very nice, like violins with some music pieces that have. The cable converts an emotional picture down, as you so beautifully can belong to Patricia Barber or Lana Del Rey - Video Games. He brings the emotion very well about.
The cable passes over the entire frequency range hear everything, he conceals nothing.
With present high but not too much, but clearly audible. (But never fiercely) Beautiful full mids and a nice layered bass. Oh and also important you are not of listening.
Overall an extremely fine wire. If you like peace and quiet, calm, restrained, take it not because this cable is oh so rich and sparkling dynamics it is simply addictive. Actually it is just a topkabel, and I compare it with considerably more expensive cables. For 479 euro to Your Stereo for sale.

¨I listened yesterday evening for more then 2 (first) hours to the Quasar. I am happy with this impression! You made an damn good amplifier! The sound is very crisp, detailed and more then excellent controlled, even with my 15 inch Tannoy driver. Soundstage is very lineair with typical Quad sound. Very pleasant to listen to. It is like you say on the website; just enjoy the music.¨
