Construction and aesthetics. Did you find the cable solid and attractive?

Definitely yes! The cable is aesthetically pleasing and attractive, giving a pleasant feeling of robustness and solidity.

How did you test for differences?

Yes, I tested by connecting and disconnecting this cable and the other one I was using, which is an AudioQuest Golden Gate.

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

I first used the cable to connect the Rega Planar 3's prephono to the Marantz PM8006, then to connect the latter's REC output with the Schiit Valhalla 2 amp. The sound is extremely linear, I had a pleasant feeling of transparency, and the ambience and three-dimensionality are also very good.

Any differences from reference cables.
Did you find any?

I believe that the Primus series is perfectly superimposable, as far as sound performance is concerned, probably because they belong to the same entry level segment; however, as far as build quality is concerned, I have to say that the Primus appears much better built, and appears much more solid and robust than the AudioQuest Golden Gate. Also the contacts are much firmer and there is more grip, more contact, so from my point of view, for the same segment, the Ricable is definitely to be preferred.
