It feels like copper cables have become more of a fan favorite over the years. But there have been a few companies that have continued to experiment with higher specification and better performing gold and silver alloy cables, and Eletech is one of the leaders. The first time I heard of Adam was at the Japan show, and this cable is a completely different style to the other flagship cable, Ode to Laura. In addition to the difference in materials, Adam has also demonstrated the qualities of gold and silver alloys, with more infectious vocals, plentiful low end, and sparkling highs. It's hard to think of a gold or silver alloy cable that has room for improvement, but Adam has done it. Recommended pairing: Noble Ronin Prestige, and UM Amber, really great.
I'm a big fan of Brise Audio, having purchased everything from the Naobi Ultimate, to the Yatono Ultimate, and even the Silver-Concept and Murakumo II. Compared to the previous Silver Concept, the Shirogane is the perfect answer to Brise Audio's tried-and-true approach to silver cables; the Silver-Concept is more like a traditional silver cable with extreme purity, whereas the Shirogane doesn't irritate as much as the Silver-Concept, and instead it's smooth and warm, and the Shirogane is a great way to get the most out of the silver cables you're used to. For me this is a much better match for the IEMs I have on hand, and I think it's a very good match for both the Viking Prestige KE and the AK Aura.
I replaced my Project transport with the ET3 and could not be happier. The ET3 is built like a S__T brick house and is more detailed than the Project transport. It has a wide soundstage with instruments well placed within the soundstage. The only downside is difficult to read what track is playing because of the size of the display. Would i recommend the ET3 YES.
Have heard the regular centurion a while back, and after three month searching a cable that could give the Traillii more depth in soundstage and treble extension I decided that the Centurion is probably the best cable on the market for that purpose. Though I wouldn't say the Centurion is a perfect "upgrade" cable since it definitely affects the overall tuning of the IEM, the Centurion still has one of the best Soundstage performance out of all cables I tested and the most sophisticated mid-high to treble tuning which I found suitable for my current setup.
Also thanks Andrew for having it delivered flawlessly. The moment I saw the two gigantic boxes I realize how difficult this actually is.
its my best cd transport
