Top of the line interconnect from HiDiamond. One meter Diamond9 Interconnect in excellent shape. One of the elite Interconnects available today. Superb performance with exceptional detail and bass and a very musical presentation. This cable exceeded the performance of my prior cable, the High Fidelity CT-1, a very highly acclaimed cable by almost everyone, including the great Harry Pearson. The plastic directional markers have some very minor scuff/rub marks, (won't show in photos), but the rest of the ICs (sheathing and RCA connectors,etc...) are in perfect shape.
