Graham Slee AgSat90 Interconnect Cable
The Graham Slee AgSat Interconnect Cables
We love the range of Graham Slee Cables, tried and tested by ourselves - in fact we own some Lautus and Cusat Interconnects for our demo set-up.. they seem to add nothing - and take nothing away, which is exactly what we need for our auditioning set-ups.
The AgSat is slightly different due to the silver content.
Subjectively, the higher conductivity of silver has the tendency to intensify the "pronunciation" of mid to high frequency sounds.
In Graham Slee's opinion the AgSat90 interconnect cable adds just the right amount of silver for a satisfying sound.
All in all these are superb value for money when you consider the heritage of the company and the cost of other premium brands on the market!
As with all Graham Slee products these are handmade to order by by the nice chaps at Graham Slee and it does usually take a couple of weeks to get these to you. However! It is well worth the wait in our opinion!
For hi-fi enthusiasts who prefer a little more "accent" to their music whilst it not sounding over the top.
Available in 1m length only and now in dual mono for stereo (2 separate cables).
Terminations in RCA/phono plugs both ends.
Emphasizing The Musical Edge
A 0.71mm soft fine silver wire of 99.99% purity is added in parallel with the 1mm annealed copper signal conductor to give emphasis over a well-balanced sound.
Meticulously assembled by hand, the AgSat90's silver wire is loosley injected into an insulation channel adjacent the main copper signal conductor to which it is connected at either end.
Whereas 100% silver wired interconnect cables are subjectively hard and overly bright sounding, the careful balance between the conductivities of silver and copper metals makes the tonal balance much more palatable.
The addition of silver to an otherwise highly conductive copper cable subjectively adds a particular accent to the sounds of metalic and strung instruments, producing more of a shimmer to cymbals and highlighting the sound of strings.
Consider that the most common interconnection cables are copper made, and the finished sound of a recording will be balanced to sound just right using such. Then playback using a more conductive metal will sound subjectively different - and silver is the most conductive of all metals.
Is it high fidelity though? Anything that alters the sound from what is intended is obviously not, but where system synergy isn't delivering the snap and sharpness it ought to be doing, the AgSat90 might be just the solution needed.
Otherwise, the AgSat90 has all the excellent shielding and sonic features of our other high quality interconnects.
