Kubala Sosna Emotion Speaker Cables - 4M (13.1') spade to spade. World-class cables full stop. Absolutely incredible- built like a tank. Cables are a full 1.5 inch in diameter and weigh nearly 20 lbs. Music just flows with more detail than you've ever heard. Best-in-show cost-no-object shows often are loomed with Kubala-Sosna.
Condition of these is very good. Rated 8/10 only because I'm not the original owner (and take Audiogon rating guides seriously.) They look new other than usual marks on spades from clamping terminals. These are without a doubt the best sounding cables I've heard in my system. Selling due to a speaker change that requires a pair of bi-wire cables. PayPal pay adds 3%.
From Jim Merod's Positive Feedback review:
"All the more need for beguiling music—and, no less, for enchanting music reproduction. Gumption, not obedience, lends urge to my admiration for Emotion speaker cables. They now represent, in a universe of relatives, an absolute. They aroused a set of expensive and genuinely excellent speakers. They awoke my ears to more delight and information within my own recordings (not only those with Wayne and Herbie) than I'd heard before. Beyond that, Emotion speaker cables establish, here at BluePort, a new standard for audio reproduction, described above in restrained terms …discretion being, to valor, what restraint is to truth and gumption.
Although enthusiasm and critical approval demand an admiring reviewer recommend attention on readers, the Unrepentant Disobedient Streak within this scribbler tempers praise, disinclined toward a huckster's spiel. The truth known here: these cables are expensive; they nonetheless earn certification as values commensurate with price.
One voyages as a Recording Bloke, or Reviewer Obedient to Orders, trepidation one's sole compass and companion. At the edge of things, asleep to life's miasma, this aging partner to truth's paradox (the way up and the way down are the same) here attests to happy satisfaction in the presence of sound crafted, never interfering with musical sources, by Kubala-Sosna's alluring Emotion speaker wire."
