What made you choose Ricable?

Although my audio system overall is basic, I still wanted to invest in the cable so that I could also use it in the case of possible system upgrades with mid-level electronics. I was helped a lot by the website of Ricable , which had detailed information about the product and also the possibility of customizing both the color of the outer braid and the length of the cable itself, then the photographs of the various products made me perceive right away, even if not necessarily, that I was in front of a well-made product.

What do you think about the construction
and aesthetics of the product?

I had a first confirmation that I was in front of a high-level product already starting from the packaging, well made and robust in a way that adequately protects the contents. Once I touched the cable I could appreciate its excellent construction quality, the robustness of the materials used. The cable has excellent flexibility, so nothing is left to chance; the attention to detail is palpable. The cable is well shielded, and the banana plug terminations are solid and well secured, ensuring a stable and secure connection, and the aesthetics are gorgeous and don't create any problems with the decor, on the contrary.

How did you carry out the tests? Which songs did you use to test the cable?

I tested the cable with various songs that I am used to listening to, pop, rock, country, disco, using all my electronics, including even listening through the OLED TV audio, because I wanted to try it in all sorts of situations, even those where the audio quality of the source is at its lowest.

What were your
listening impressions?

I am usually very critical, and I believe I have not suffered any placebo effect. The cable Speaker Ricable exceeded my expectations. Once installed, I immediately noticed an improvement in the clarity and depth of sound. The bass became more defined and controlled, while the high frequencies were sharper and more precise, but certainly the aspect that I found in my personal experience is that this cable greatly reduces background noise, allowing a cleaner and more faithful audio reproduction, this thanks to the excellent isolation that provides effective protection against electromagnetic interference and losses INTERCONNECT. Just to be clear, I was not coming from the classic red and black cable but from a basic quality cable, produced by a well-known Swedish company. This cable neither adds nor detracts from the reproduction of my electronics, this for better or worse, and it is a very important aspect for me.

Your conclusions.

In conclusion, the Speaker Ricable cable was an excellent choice, my system benefited in audio quality and, why not, also aesthetically, with sturdy construction, excellent performance and an all in all fair value for money in hindsight. This cable represents a significant upgrade for any high-fidelity enthusiast. I highly recommend the cable Speaker Ricable to anyone looking for a reliable and uncompromising connection.
