EWA LS-40 Loudspeaker Cable

Lyngdorf TDAI-3400 integrated amp/streamer; Shahinian Obelisk 2 speakers (existing speaker cable is Avondale Black Link).


My Shahinian Obelisks just loved LS-40! Upgrading to a more powerful amplifier with Obelisks transforms what they are capable of, and this cable has a similar effect; huge 3D soundstage and amazing detail and dynamics. It became clear that LS-40 was allowing more volume from my system but that I am usually comfortable with because of what there was less of (not more) – glare. I seem to be sensitive to glare, and particularly with female vocal recordings, and happily there was none at any volume that I could comfortably live with, and I found myself living with some much higher volumes! Much too much music played over a few days to list, but a few highlights for me – Laura Marling with just an acoustic guitar, great guitar player and a whole additional line going on underneath that I had never heard before; Jose James “Trouble”, astonishing drum part and the drummer right there in the room with me; Cowboy Junkies “Sweet Jane” from Trinity Revisited, a cacophony of noise that suddenly made complete sense. Also, I’m surprised that nobody has reported previously how good classical music sounds with this cable. From large scale orchestral through choral, chamber music to ambient. - Richard.
