SPECIAL DISCOUNT PRICE FOR AUDIOGON MEMBERS ONLY
A remarkable upgrade for dCS owners (obviously also for other makes of high end digital audio equipment).
Revelation Audio Labs 'Prophecy' CryoSilver Reference digital link cable set.
Handcrafted in Palm Coast, Florida, U.S.A.
This set is specially made in the lengths that are appropriate for an exact fit for the dCS Scarlatti stack as arrayed in the side-by-side configuration shown in the photos. Of course the set will perform beautifully with other dCS combos, and is available in the lengths appropriate for how you have your equipment layout (and perform with excellence with other brands of equipment for that matter). Brings the best out of DSD.
The cable set consists of the following:
(two) DualConduit Firewire cables - (one) 0.8-meter (regular price $549.00), (one) 0.7-meter (regular price $539.00)
(one) 1.25-meter AES/EBU cable for Transport to Upsampler (regular price $599.00)
(three) BNC cables - (one) 1.25-meter for Transport to Clock (regular price $599.00), (one) 0.8-meter for DAC to Clock (regular price $539.00), (one) 0.3-meter for Upsampler to Clock (regular price $449.00)
Let us know if your system layout requires slightly different lengths - we will be glad to accommodate your needs.
This cable set features:
• We start with bare single crystal five-nines (5N) ultra-pure solid core CryoSilver™ conductors – deep cryogenically treated in our exclusive vacuum cryogenic process. Silver is the most electrically conductive of all the elements, and our silver is not your father’s silver. The raw, uninsulated wire used is made by a U.S. company that specializes in precision silver wiring technology primarily for advanced aerospace and medical imaging industries. Not at all what you find in other audio cables. No bulk cable is employed in any of our designs. That is simply because there is no bulk cable in existence that does what we need it to do.
• Air Tunnel™ dielectrics
•Transparent Teflon isolators
•Progressive Hand Wrap™ discreet shields for each conductor pole, isolating each conductor/dielectric sub-assembly from all others within the array - eliminates EM effects, cross talk, and eddy currents
•Triple-layer solid and helically-woven stranded outer shieldings
•All shieldings drained to the "source" end only - to carry absorbed internal and external EMI/RFI noise harmlessly away from the music
•Cables are fully conditioned on our audiodharma Cable Cooker and contacts are treated with Furutech Nano Liquid™ Gold/Silver/ C30H50 prior to shipment.
The Firewire cable employs our ground breaking structure - DualConduit™ - separate cables for the power and signal lines.
It is widely known that the radiated noise from power cables affects signal cables and damages sound quality when a signal cable and a power cable are installed in parallel or come into contact with each other. However, virtually every Firewire cable available on the market have the signal line and power line in one cable together - we can easily imagine how sound quality is deteriorated by this structure.
Some high-end Firewire cables have independently shielded signal and power lines. However, these two lines are in close proximity in the same cable and are constantly causing noise reflections inside the outer shielding tube which will significantly damage sound quality. The power supply lines in Firewire cables can potentially transmit a large amount of 'noise' that is generated by the source. This 'dirty power' seriously degrades the quality of the signal being transmitted and therefore, audio sound quality is greatly reduced. Although our previous design features discreet shielding for each conductor pole, which is superior to most cables on the market, a feature also included in this latest design, which addresses this issue and is vastly superior to the typical Firewire cable, our DualConduit design offers the ultimate in isolation of the signal lines from the power lines. Our latest-design Firewire cable is equipped with two independent cables consisting of a shielded structure with a 100% shielding effect obtained by using heavy solid and silver plated copper stranded shields. This is the only Firewire cable which is successful in stopping noise interaction between the power and signal lines.
Mr. Michael Murray-Robertson, an English classical music reviewer and symphonic 'cellist, apparently has a renown state-of-the-art listening enviroment, employing the dCS Scarlatti four-piece stack with this exact digital cable set (two Firewire cables, one AES/EBU cable, three BNC clocking cables) with Nagra tube amplification and Quad ESL speakers...here is quoting his e-mail to dCS that he cc'd me:
Dear David, Dear Rav,
As usual, it was good speaking with you on the telephone but I do look forward to your visit in person when this finally works out! Let's hope my proposed dates prove convenient for you; Rav. My offer of a night here still stands!
As promised, I can confirm that the six digital cables for quadruple dCS Scarlatti from Revelation Audio Labs are outstanding. We made extensive comparisons cable by cable on original recordings at which I was present including Telarc: the results were obviously superior.
Speaking as a classical music string player with forty years' experience of live & reproduced music, I really felt that more of the spectrum was reproduced via these digital interconnects, the "grain" of upper harmonics revealed the individual colours of each instrument positioned precisely in an allotted space & given acoustics. Increased presence; dynamics were noticeable albeit without any aggressive or "shouty" aspect.
The soundstage also widened; deepened.
I identified the violin of Christian Ferras in the sixties and then again, played four decades later by Corey Cerovsèk in a different hall! Not the sound of any violin, rather that violin! From the "fluffy, horsehair on gut" sound of pianissimo strings to the liquid sound of a Cavaillé-Coll pipe organ, the endless nuances of the timbres made me simply want to just sit back and enjoy a moment in time with the performers.
In all honesty, I must warn that these cables are stiff; that undue bending for demos around the world might cause problems. Perhaps Rav could leave them in their pre-formed shape & pack them in foam for travel? And as I said, they do need time to 'burn in' despite the generous time given for this at Revelation. I was unable to resist trying their balanced analogue and loudspeaker cables; the latter especially need time.
The French say: 'you have to suffer to be beautiful', and the English: 'patience is a virtue!'
I'm impatient but will not need to suffer again as I have found what I wanted...an 'even closer approach to the original sound'.
I look forward to your news as promised. Bravo and best wishes, to all at Swavesey.
"Revelation Audio Labs cables have helped us reach an exceptional degree of untarnished communication of music, so I keenly recommended them here." - M.M.R.
Subsequent to employing our digital cable set, Mr. Murray-Robertson's system is now fully wired exclusively with Revelation Audio Labs cables - from wall to speaker - all power cables, digital cables, analogue interconnects and loudspeaker cables.
Keep in mind that Mr. Murray-Robertson is not a high end equipment reviewer but a classical music reviewer, and as such does not technically write reviews for equipment. Message me if you want his contact information as a reference. He has not been compensated by us in any way.
Also, here are brief comments from an international AudiogoN member who purchased this cable set (also seen in our AudiogoN feedback):
"I just want to thank you and let you know that your FireWire and clock cable set for dCS is awesome! Very musical, black background, very detailed and good soudstage and imaging are pinpoint accurate...excellent cables! Highly recommended! Thank you and more power to you and Revelation Audio Labs."
These six cables would normally sell for $3,274.00 if purchased separately. However, as a member of AudiogoN, you may purchase the full set for $775.00 off of this price, through this listing only.
The cable set is available for immediate shipment.
We pay the cost of shipping worldwide.
We prefer PayPal, but will only accept a check or postal money order from U.S. buyer, or only a postal money order from a Canadian buyer.
Revelation Audio Labs does not offer various models, with their respective price points, for a prospective application. This is because each of our cables is simply the very best that it can possibly be, and comparable to the very finest cables available. Yet, our prices are very competitive, because our factory-direct sales eliminate inevitable distributor mark-up.

Another very special distinction that merits your trust. Name just one high end audio equipment maker who, as a result of their solid work and integrity in the high end, has been contracted by NASA multiple times to provide various in-flight hardware? None other than Revelation Audio Labs. AMAZING!!! Tell me if you know another.
To save you money, we sell directly to the end user, skipping the inevitable levels of price mark-ups (distributors, dealers), but our cables are also proudly carried at the insistence of these fine high end audio dealers:
