What made you choose Ricable?

I was setting up a good level chain with speakers that I have owned for a long time and know well. I considered not replacing them now to appreciate the new level of the amplifier and source. I also initially left the cables I had built years ago unchanged. I was very pleased with the new system, but realised that the weak point was the cables Speaker (in particular) and INTERCONNECT. Hence the decision to upgrade. I did some research and heard good things about Ricable in both written and video reviews. At this point I decided to purchase the two products.

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

The products are very well finished with high quality bananas. The very soft sleeves adequately protect the actual cable and the feeling that the whole thing is built with a high level of attention to detail is tangible. The packaging of the cables also confirms this feeling. Last but not least, they arrived two days after ordering. This is not fundamental, but also confirms the feeling of care for the customer as well as for the product.

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

Before plugging in the cables I listened to my test playlist that I use to test electronics, amplifiers and speakers to commit the before to memory. Björk, Soulsavers, Trentemøller, Manu Chao, Led Zeppelin, Sia and others played for about an hour. Then I plugged in the new cables and repeated listening to the same playlist.

What were your
listening impressions?

The change has been radical. The songs heard came from Qobuz with audio quality at least as good as CD and in several cases in high resolution. The level of detail and precison found in some cases made me think I was not listening to the same recording. Certainly the previous cables were not at the same level, but the amount of musical information reaching the ear is enormously greater. The most obvious case I encountered was with Marooned by Pink Floyd. And I'm talking about the entry level series. Now I will enjoy this good result for a while and then I can think about changing speakers.

Your conclusions.

What can I say? The cables alone cannot work miracles, but in a good technical chain they can make the best of what one has, and the listening experience, in my case, has benefited a lot. As always, I suggest to start step by step, because even the basic series is of an excellent level. Then there is always the possibility to grow.
