What made you choose Ricable?

I needed a good Speaker , shielded and reliable cable for my new system. I will preface this by saying that the cables did not come with the speakers, so I thought I would make a good purchase, also intrigued by the good reviews I came across by chance on YouTube. I like the idea of an Italian company!

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

Right away, the cables and packaging impressed me well. So did the thickness of the cables, the custom braiding and the care taken in assembling the terminals (in my case, spades), as well as the packaging and the nice wide ties, in Italian colors, to hold the cables in place. Let's not forget the possibility of requesting custom cables.

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

I did not have comparisons with other cables Speaker for comparison, but I listened several times to U2 tracks on vinyl. I chose different listening spots to get a more realistic perception of the music. They also hold up well to some extra bending that, for decorating reasons, I was forced to do.

What were your
listening impressions?

Listening to my U2 on vinyl, I was able to appreciate each instrument well, particularly the bass and electric guitar. At the moment no hum or interference seems to show up despite the fact that, due to space problems, I have a concentration of cables in some places, including power cables, which could have given some problems if arranged parallel to the cables Speaker . The sound comes out "clean," and I do not use mains conditioners or the like. With time and further listening, I will then be able to give even more comprehensive feedback.

Your conclusions.

Apart from the acoustic quality, which surely also depends on the electronics in your possession and the environment, the eye also wants its part. Another thing that should not be underestimated at all: the availability and support had from the beginning for a change made to my order later (replacement from bananas to spades, free of charge, including pickup and shipping of the product). Lifetime warranty that shows reliability and presence of the company!
