New Review now out from Positive Feedback on our amazing Poseidon Signature II speaker cables!
Recent customer review: 2018
" I wanted to give my feedback on the Morpheus Reference II interconnects. Not that they haven't been well-praised before, and not that you need to know that Silnote make's a great product, but because I think audio enthusiasts should report their recommendations to others when someone is making a product line that is so good, and so affordable. And I realize that my feedback is system-specific. But I was so floored by their musicality, I wanted to add my two cents. I bought them to run from a pre/pro to a halfway-decent solid state amp (class B in stereophile). I've run them in for maybe 50-60 hours. Honestly, I didn't expect much, especially since they were replacing some highly-regarded (but budget priced) solid silver interconnects. But the results of installing them left me slack-jawed. The thing I first noticed was proper instrument weight. The instruments sounded full and correct...not bloated, warm or "tubey," but properly full. This may have been because I was coming to them from silver, but it was welcomed in my solid state system. Highs seemed "attached" to the instrument, and not rolled off at all, while bass was astounding.
When using them for HT, I noticed in a sword fight scene that the weapons had taken on their proper weight...it was no longer a knife fight, but a sword fight. And on and on I could go. And I didn't have to strain to hear these differences; they were obviously apparent, which means I can be immersed in music or HT at my leisure, relaxed. They are, in a word, fun.
I used to be an audiophile, and I have played with interconnects costing multiples of these. They did not do what the Morpheus References do. I just think that when a product is so well designed and so well priced, it's incumbent upon the audio community to say so, to keep the product alive. And my two cents is this: these are highly recommended to anyone who has a modest to mid-priced solid state system. I honestly can't comment on how they'd do in a tubed system, as I no longer have one to try them with. But man, are these things good!! Best, John 2018"
"Most Wanted Component of The Year" from Stereo Times!
Silnote Audio Orion M2 Speaker Cables/Poseidon Signature Interconnects (speaker cables -$3,295 for an 8 foot pr; interconnects - $1,595 per metered pair: Reviewed here) The Silnotes are sonic chameleons in the best sense of the word. Peerlessly neutral, smooth and holographic, superbly detailed but never etched or bright, they reproduce the unique tonal shadings, dynamic gradations and overall gestalt of any recording one cares to use with unflinching fidelity. In a world where reference-level cables frequently cost more than fine automobiles, the Silnotes deliver most of what the pricier competition offers for a fraction of the cost.
The Orion M2 speaker cables and Poseidon Signature balanced interconnects are my new references, and are likely to remain so for the foreseeable future. (Maurice Jeffries)"
AXPONA 2015 Silnote Audio Room Report:
"As I mentioned earlier, Doug Schroeder and I agreed that one room in particular stood out for its extraordinary sound, sound that owed in no small part to the extraordinary cables used to configure the system: the Silnoteroom. The system that Silnote's approachable proprietor and chief designer put together, seriously seduced my tired ears for a second year in a row. Their delicious system came within shouting distance of winning my "best sound at the show" designation.
Look for a review over the next several months. Oh, and my deepest apologies to the Silnote team in advance, but I was so taken by the exhibit and the great sound coming from this room that I forgot to take photos. Mea culpa!" Jeffery Brown , Stereo Times
Recent customer feedback:
"I appreciate your work with customers and your work to produce a fine
product line. The Morpheus Reference II is an excellent sounding cable.
Your company is far above many of the others who sell rather poor
sounding cables in their lower price range. I look forward to trying
more of your products with trust and confidence." William 2017
( Quick shipment of Silnote power cables, my first foray into seeing what a difference good power cables make. Mark has always been a class act. Silnote interconnects and the excellent Silnote Orion M2 speaker cables have made a very positive sonic difference in my system and I have tried a LOT of different cables. )
( Prompt Shipment. all items as described. Inserted the cables which were the Morpheus Reference II Series II XLR Interconnect, as well as Orion-M1 Master Reference USB Cable, and the Poseidon GL Reference Power cord. All I can say is that my system sounded "WOW". Will try their speaker cables next. )
( I just bought these AC cables from Silnote and have not yet auditioned them, but I bought them with great confidence due to my enthusiasm about Silnote's products. I own a pair of Orion-M2 Master Reference speaker cables which are the best speaker cables I've ever heard. Also, their interconnect cables are very natural sounding with great extension. Buy with confidence! )
( I love my Silnote cables. My go-to place for cables, ever since I first bought their Morpheus Reference Series II balanced interconnects 2 years ago and was in euphoria with with how much air and detail they had, with deep tight extension in the bass and natural sounding at the same time. Thanks Mark, well done, indeed. Silnote is a excellent cable company Mark works to find a cable best for you as well as your budget The Poseidon mk-2 interconnects Beat cables far more expensive Highly recommended. )
( Great product. Arrived quickly, well packed, well designed. Sound is crystal clear. Will definitely keep in mind this seller in the ongoing quest for cables. Thanks! )
( Class "A" all the way! I'm not done with them yet! Great Product! Highly recommended ! Thanks )
( Wow!!! This Epirus Master USB was the missing link in my system. All questions about different USBs making a difference were instantly removed during the 1st listen. Mark, you are both very responsive and passionate about your business and it translates into a product that puts magic into hifi. )
( Awesome interconnects. Detailed, smooth, fast, and most of all AFFORDABLE. I get really suspicious of companies like Transparent - like their network boxes are there to reduce quality, not add. Silnote doesn't play tricks like that - I feel like they are delivering the most quality possible in their lowest-end offering, and only add quality up the line with premium materials. )
( Quick shipment, impressive cable build quality. Lowered the "brightness" versus the cheaper silver plated OFC cable I had between my phono amp and NAD. Very happy customer. )
( Mark is an excellent communicator, responds without delay and delivers quickly. The Orion M2 speaker cable is very good, sounds neutral, very quiet and quite revealing. It lacks a bit of HF air/extension in my system but then this is a pure copper cable. The construction is of good quality and looks like quality materials are used and should last. )
( Excellent seller,high quality product,fast shipping,highly recommended,an asset to the audiogon community. )
( Mark is one of the best I have ever worked with! His cables are the best value I have come across. They are great and so is he! Thanks Mark! )
( Excellent seller. Prompt shipping, great packaging and the cable sounds great. Buy with confidence. )
( A pleasure to do business with. It turns out that I am pairing his new power cables with an earlier bought set of his speaker cables. Sounds is wonderfully satisfying. Highly recommended. )
"I'm listening to the Morpheus Reference Series II cables; they're great! They compare favorably (i.e. at least as good as) the Transparent Ultra I was using. I got these cables because I'm setting up a second system in my house, but it's not set up yet. My plan was to use the Transparents in the new "better" system, but now that I've heard these, I'm thinking I might want to get rid of my Transparents.
As these cables burn in, they are sounding even better, so it actually turned out to be a no-brainer. Good-bye Transparent! I look forward to setting up my new system, and putting the Morpheus Reference II Series II on the L/R channels. Now I will have 5 pairs of Silnote balanced interconnects, enough for both systems complete! I’m glad you advertise on Audiogon; if not for that, I wouldn’t have discovered your cables, and I’m only listening to your most affordable cable! Kicked Transparent Ultra to the curb…amazing value. Please feel free to share my comments.
I've just opened up
my Silnote Morpheus Reference II's and
and I have to say I
was impressed from the get go. Beautiful construction, clean looking
overall and has a lovely feel to its sleeving.
I was even more awed
once I pressed the play button. It took away all the slight
treble/upper mids harshness my previous cables had, and was just liquid
smooth from top to bottom of the spectrum, without any detail loss or
extra coloration. Vocals also became a tad lusher and sexier as a
result. It's only initial impressions but I'm a happy camper already.
Brilliant work guys. I will definitely be coming back to Silnote for my next cable upgrade.
Have a great day. Because I totally am right now. Cheers!"
Regards, Daniel 2016
"I turned to the Silnote products as they present a highly refined sonic signature. This refinement was revealed by the transparency of the Liquid Pre." "This puts the Silnote products in very fine company, among the very best I have used in the past decade."
Doug Schroeder, Dagogo
"Game changers. I mean I always feel like I can hear nuanced differences with cables and the like...but often I wonder if I’m just bullshitting myself to rationalize the purchase. These are a significant upgrade in my rig. And that’s right outta the box. These things RIPPED a veil off I didn’t know was there. More presence and meat but without crowding...more individual space in the SS. It really makes the treble on the my Beyerdynamic T1’s (through a Woo Audio WA2) more digestible...actually adds detail and subtracts the sibilance it can have. I just got done playing 3 songs that always have some edges...they were edgeless. Mid-range from heaven. I’m a drummer so I always hone in on the drum timbre and realism. Beautiful and accentuated cymbal nuance and the bottoms of the toms and kick sound like controlled cannons. Great upgrade...and they’re still cold out of the box. I’ll get back to you in a few weeks with how they evolve.
Thank you !!! Bill 2014"
"My ear told me the sound was far better than the system had a right to produce. There was no way the speakers could sound that good unless the cables were sensational. What was it that made them sound so amazing that day? It could only be one thing, I surmised, the cables."
Doug Schroeder, Dagogo
"The appearance of Silnote Cables could be summed up as classy. That's not a word I usually associate with cables, but the variety of outer jackets across the line colored white, light gray, pearlescent, Safire blue and purple evoke comparisons to semi-precious gemstones."
Doug Schroeder, Dagogo
Silnote Audio cables receive a complete "burn in" procedure with the AUDIODHARMA 3.5 Cable Cooker.
No waiting several weeks for your cables to break in as with most other manufactures! Silnote Audio cables will sound excellent right out of the box!
Silnote Audio years of intensive research in cable design technology has allowed us to create some of the world’s finest sounding audio cables.
This allows us to accurately test every conductor phase as well as certain types of shielding material. The conductors used in most all our interconnects are Ultra Pure Solid Core 24k Gold, Silver, and Copper. The final and most important testing is accomplished from hours of listening to each individual design we create. It is through this extensive testing procedure that allows us to bring you some of the finest audio cables in the world.
Silnote Audio builds audio cables that are elegantly engineered and meticulously designed with the listener in mind. We use only the finest precious metals and materials. All conductors are individually polished by hand. All Silnote cables are custom hand crafted in house with extreme attention to detail, tested on state of the art equipment, and go through a "burning in" process. We listen to and test every cable we design.
"The Morpheus cable is a real winner. It improved the sound of my audio system significantly. Fuller and more sumptuous bass while retaining the crisp, tight quality. Improved clarity without a hint of harshness. Not too bright; just right! Overall, a more holistic and integrated listening experience. Quite musical and completely satisfying. Thanks so much!"
"Silnote makes some of the best cables I have ever owned. I have spent thousands on cables and audio gear and when I purchased the RCA Morpheus interconnects it literally transformed my system from top to bottom. I tried the Poseidon AC power cables even though I have been a power cable skeptic and must admit I have the darkest background and improved imaging that I never thought was possible. Mark truly is a gift to the audiophile community. I know of no better value cable at any Price. Thank you Mark and Sllnote. Jim"
"Have Silnote Audio ICs in my main and second system and didn’t hesitate in adding Morpheus Ref 2s to my new headphone system. Silnote are top notch cables that enhance the musical experience; and as always, this transaction was easy and quick. Thanks!"
"Having now purchased one GS power cable and one set of XLRs, it’s time for other power cable and the RCA interconnects I need. I am simply blown away by your cables! In my system they are superior in every way to the cables produced by that Norse company. ;-) Next I will save my money for your speaker cables. I was hoping you’d be at Newport so I could get a "show price" on those, but it looks like I’ll have to wait. Still, I am so pleased to have found your company and its outstanding products. Thank you!"
"The strings of the guitar are very vibrant as I can hear each vibration of the strings and feel the full weight of the instrument. The sound is clear, fast and natural with a wonderful dark background. If you have never heard music coming from a black, silent background, do yourself a favor and give these interconnects a listen."
“Well I got home and hooked them up and was floored to say the least. One of my test selections is the Overture to Candid with Bernstein on DG.
My room exploded with the all the excitement this piece has to offer without the over emphasis and edginess in the upper registers. Body, weight, color, timing, breadth, etc, etc…
I was in audio heaven. Next I put on piano discs and the upper registers of the piano had clarity, color and sparkle but not edginess or over emphasis. I have to say this is the best my system has sounded. I had no idea I could get the level of sheer musicality I am now getting from my system by changing to Silnote interconnects and speaker cables.
I am really enjoying these Morpheus Reference cables. Combined with the Poseidon Signature and your Poseidon Ultra Reference Speaker cables my system is sounding better than ever. I just can’t imagine it sounding better. Thanks for your thoughts…. And again for your truly musical cables. “ Jim
Our cables have been compared to some of the best available. Silnote Audio cables have received rave reviews and recognition all over the world.
Feedback posted from our wonderful customers:
"It takes an lot to better the Silnote Audio line of cables. They will forever change the way you listen to music. An accessory is not the proper word for Silnote Audio cables. They are more of a component than anything. A direct and beautiful source to your ears." Dan
"I want you to know I will provide a RAVE review for you and your cables on audiogon feedback. I used your cables on my tuner (a Linn Pekin) and WOW: the sound was like a live recording rather than a radio station. I’m hearing variations in the sound of guitar strings which are amazingly natural, not like a recording but like a real instrument. You are the KING of cable. I thought someone would outbid me and am very surprised to have won them at the agreed price. I guess I chose an "off" night and it worked out. (I promise to call my local dealer and tell them about your cables!) I don’t think there is ANY cable out there that is better than yours except your Poseidon (I’m taking you at your word for that since you invented it). I’ve gathered together a used stereo system that would cost 20,000 new and it never sounded like that until I got your cables. They are like stereo components rather than cables. Again, YOU ARE THE KING! "
"Amazing value. Replaced interconnects (Stealth Metacarbon) worth 15 times their price, and they sound wonderful. True value and well-made. Good folks with whom to deal."
"Cables (Morpheus Reference II RCA interconnects) look and sound beautiful. Great seller. Fast shipment. Good communication. I highly recommend Silnote Audio cables and I will buy from Silnote Audio again."
"This is my third purchase of these AMAZING cables that produce LIVE-SOUNDING music which is just STUNNINGLY DETAILED, INCREDIBLY REALISTIC, THREE DIMENSIONAL,and TOTALLY AWESOME! They have taken my very high-end system to a WHOLE NEW LEVEL!"
Positive by Buyer Keith7423
" The Silnote Audio POSEIDON USB is the real deal. I compared it to my fully broken-in top-shelf ($550) USB cable and the Poseidon beat it after 10 hours of run-in. WOW! I cant wait for it to fully break-in. Dont hesitate. THANKS Mark! "
"Very quick ship, very helpful seller--led me through product choices with great patience. Sound is really excellent--very good highs, superb mids and lows-- replaced silver and MIT cables."
Positive by Buyer Deebarnes
"Just received the Poseidon Signature - sound wonderful out of the box and therefore looking forward to listening to the music as they break-in. Have 2 Silnote digital cables & 2 Apollo ICs , all quality products! Thanks Mark!
"Leaving feedback after several weeks of using several Silnote cables (IC and S/C). The MII is a keeper, the speaker cable already sounding great. Super value for the price. Each item shipped individually but never any delay, always good communication. Thanks Silnote!"
Positive by Buyer Rrgordon
"These cables are giant killers thats for sure!The big boys should be shaking in their boots! Make sure you snap them up at these fantastic prices! Just superb sounding xlr interconnects! Highly recommended to all! A+A+A+A+A+"
"This cable far exceeded my expectations. It is a flat out steal at the price. It reproduces dynamics and musical textures with great naturalness and ease. Emotionally involving and hard to stop listening. A great product!"
"Mark and the team at Silnote are first class all the way. The Morpheus XLR’s are excellent interconnects.....highly recommended!!! "
"Wow.. truly fantastic cables.. already sounds better than the 900$ cardas xlr/rca, (borrowed from a local hi fi shop). I’m only 30 hrs (+/-) into the recommend break in period (50 - 100 hrs) and all I can say is my "bottom" feels the bass"
"No such thing as double positive? Wow, these things feel like they’ve doubled my soundstage and definitely cure some noise and brightness in my system! And I’m just going on first impressions here!"
"The Silnote Reference II ic is incredible! I’ve had ic’s in my system costing literally 4 times as much and the Ref II is now my reference. Great guys to do business with. Highly recommended!"
"Mark was very professional and he makes some really nice cables. I used his Morpheus LE Reference interconnects to replace a pair of Straightwire Virtuoso RCA’s, and I’m not changing them back.They sound great! Thanks again, Mark!"
"Mark, another well made , excellently packaged and quickly shipped cable. Anxious to spend extended listening time to some music with it in my system - expecting it to be as pleasurable as with your other cables I have txs"
"Mark and Silnote audio are outstanding examples of how an audio company should be run. I am a thrice repeat customer who really appreciates an outstanding product which far exceeds its rather modest price tag. Thanks so much Mark!"
"Great Transaction. Cables shipped quickly and I look forward to extended listening sessions as they break in. Initial listening confirms these are great sounding interconnects. Quality construction which is first class."
