Due to going direct from my dac, I now have one surplus Sablon Audio 3 foot Panatella RCA connectors and only a few months old, in mint condition.
I most certainly concur w/Jeff Days conclusion on his review of the Panatella:
"The Sablon Audio Panatela, designed by Mark Coles, is easily the best interconnect I have encountered, almost causing me to go into shock during listening sessions. I think the Panatela is a paradigm shifting design, combining incredible sonic prowess with a musicality that has to be heard to be believed, giving an overall presentation that provides the most direct link to the music of any IC I have ever encountered, and it just makes music listening more fun.
Sonically, the Panatela is warm and natural sounding, has remarkable detail recovery and tonality, is colorful and lively, has a huge spacious soundstage with vibrant images, and a seemingly unlimited instrumental layering ability. The dynamic ability, along with an abundance of nuance recovered makes the music come alive in my listening room to a precedent setting degree.
I suppose it is fitting that Mark names his products after fine cigars, because the Panatela is one smoking hot interconnect! The Panatela gets my highest recommendation; it is an awesome achievement in interconnects design. Mark you are amazing!"
