Argentum Acoustics Cables
(They're Scary Good)
Yes it's that time of the year with corny ''spooktacular'' sales and ''scary '' deals on products that didn't sell during the summer. It's probably the best time to buy camping gear and window air conditioners.
cables are a great value all year long... they have the performance and quality construction of the top line mega buck cables at a reasonable price. Take for example their Argento
Coax Digital Cable,
It uses Cryogenically-treated, Laboratory-Grade Silver conductors, aerospace grade PTFE (Teflon) insulation, even the shielding uses OCC Copper + Silver. It's the closest thing I've found to my $1425 Acoustic Revive DSIX cable.... and it's less than 1/4 the price. That's still expensive for most people, but it's well worth the price when you consider how smooth and natural digital can sound with this cable.
RCA and XLR cable along with the Aureus-2
Speaker cable use Lab-Grade Ultra-Pure Ohno Continuous Cast Copper and the speaker cables come with interchangeable Spade and Deltron-type Bananas. These cables give surprising weight and fullness to the sound, have great dynamics but never sound bright or fatiguing. The Mythos RCA cables start at $350/ pair and outperform many $1K+ cables.
Argentum Acoustics is a division of Ultralink
and somehow remains relatively unnoticed in this country (they do big business in Europe and Asia) and in a sea of mediocre cables that flood the market they stand out as truly musical products that deserve your attention.
