Cardas Audio Cross have been an audiophile reference for years with generous soundstaging and instrumental detail. I find Cross close in timbre to Golden Reference, offering about 80% of the performance for 50% of the price. In some ways, Cross is better, being slightly more open, and, (I feel) offering slightly bigger soundstaging than Golden Reference. It locks onto vocals, making lyrics and spoken dialog easier to understand.
Original owner, less than a year old. These have the updated jacket letter and black shrink wrap to indicate they were the last generation of Cross to be manufactured. Condition is nearly new other than signs of use on the spades. Spades are 1/4" (6 mm). I was using two pair in a biamp configuration, but have simplified my system needs for now.
