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, Stereo Times.
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 Silnote room. 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
"Hi Guys, Greetings from Turkey. I'm not writing for Orion but it's little brother Poseidon Ultra Mk2. I ordered these 8 foots beauties just 10 days ago and arrived yesterday with perfect condition. This cable is simply stunning. First thing I noticed was the very very high resolution and the sound stage which is really hug!e and realistic. It provides great bass definition with absolute control, more transparent yet neutral mids and trebles wrt to my previous speaker cable. This cable has top notch price / performance ratio. I feel myself lucky. Thanks for your great care." Guney T, 2015
Comments: "I just wanted to get back to you regarding your
Orion-M2 speaker cable. After reading the latest Stereo Times review and reviewer comments, they were so impressed they bought the review sample, I had to give them a try. I have had several $2,000+ cables from MIT, Kimber, Acoustic Zen ,and lastly the much hyped Synergistic Research Element with their active shield. All were good in several areas but none made a dramatic improvement in my system. Then the Orion-M2 arrived. The depth, tonal shadings, sound-stage, and realism is very noticeable especially after letting them play for 75 hours when
they are now fully broken in.
I could only imagine what the Orion-M1 interconnects would do, or even the
Poseidon-2's. I also wanted to let you know the fit and finish was
excellent and the Silver connectors a excellent touch." Thanks
much, Paul. 2016
"Well, the Orion M2's arrived yesterday afternoon and I spent the next 5
hours just listening to tracks I've heard countless times before but I must
say, it was different with these cables. You used the term "fluid" ... yes,
they are that and more. I hear even more detail (hard to believe after the
Poseidon's) and greater depth. Sometimes differences are subtle .... many times obvious. My Gauder Akustik
Cassiano's have never sounded better. Yes I would say, worth the price
and I'm pleased. But I too am anxious to hear the Stereo Times review. Thank you again ... will spread the word to my audiophile
buddies." Thomas 2015

The Orion -M2 Master Series Reference Features (UPOF7N) Ultra Pure Solid Core Copper with 32 total individual solid core conductors in a 9 gauge construction. A state of the art design that delivers one of the most astonishing listening experiences. We designed the M2 Master Reference with the critical listener in mind. The Orion-M2 Master Reference is close in performance to the Orion-M1 but at a fraction of the price. The M2 delivers a remarkable holographic sound with palpable mids, air, and resolution. The deep defined bass extension is just a plus. As with all Silnote Cables, the natural midrange is palpably real!
"I turned to the Silnote products as they present a highly refined sonic signature.
"This puts the Silnote products in very fine company, among the very best I have used in the past decade. Doug Schroeder, Dagogo"
"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
"The Silnote Audio Orion-M 1 balanced interconnects with the custom Cardas XLR terminations are both aesthetically and sonically outstanding cables. The sheer realism, soundstaging, macro and micro dynamics afforded by these interconnects are second to none. Experience a top notch cable from a top notch company and CEO, Mark. An A+++ transaction indeed."
“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
"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."

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."
