What made you choose Ricable?

I had the opportunity to appreciate the build and sound quality (albeit of the Primus series) on two different occasions. Already the entry level series returned an impressive result and a tangible difference with the previous wiring. Comparing it to the previous set-up, the result strongly encouraged me to try the Dedalus series.

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

Just say: Made in Italy. Exceptional construction and packaging. Possibility of customisation at the highest levels. Aesthetically they are a real BOMB. In every detail you can appreciate the level of craftsmanship. From the materials to the serigraphy, up to the cable ties. Weight and sturdiness at the highest levels. Connectors comfortable to hold and masterful in tightening.

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

The audio test returned proverbial precision and an absolutely crystal-clear, three-dimensional sound image. The mid-high range is reproduced to the maximum of its possibilities. The bass is restrained, never redundant but at the same time musical. Sincere" voices, precise and well positioned on the musical stage. On the strings, the timbre recalls the construction material of the instruments' loudspeakers. High range present, crystalline and never (never!) tiring.

Mark Knopfler Dire Straits
What were your
listening impressions?

My listening references are: Michel Godard with Monteverdi: A Trace of Grace; Dire Straits with Love over Gold; Patricia Barber with Companion; Miles Davis, Duke Ellington, Nils Lofgren and so on. Right from the start, on the wind instruments I found more airiness and spatiality; correct timbre and impeccable positioning of the musical components; the voices crystalline and elegant, central and with an emulative sound image of the stage. Bass is present, strong and never fatiguing. Overall the soundstage is more precise and three-dimensional. The overall image stands as a new listening reference.

Your conclusions.

Anyone who does not believe that attention to wiring marks the difference between a 'before' and an 'after' should seriously rethink their views. This series, sister to the top of the range, fully expresses the potential of impressive construction and a focus on sound rather than mere current flow. In a nutshell, my already high-performing system revealed itself in all its potential!
