Cables – 7N Neotech UP-OCC Copper Cryo Litz | 7N Single Crystal Copper Cryo Litz STE


Preamble.

First and foremost, I’d like to state that all content in this article is my personal opinion. I being an Audio Engineer like to rely on the science behind audio and that applies to cables too. I don’t give in to popular beliefs/opinions and try to discern the differences in sound quality by testing and hearing stuff for myself. I measure some cable parameters and try to equate their effects on the sound, but in my experience, it doesn’t always translate clearly. So, I like to think of myself as ‘cable neutral’ while being a cable enthusiast, who likes testing and using cables not to prove or disprove a theory but for the fun, curiosity, experience and love of the hobby. Here, I’m just going to state what I perceive. Your experience might differ from mine and that is absolutely alright and expected. You can take my suggestions if you like, but try the product for yourself to see if it works for you or not.

  1. Quick point of clarity some might find helpful: when building your cable from components on the Electro Acousti store, there are sliders designed specifically for 4 core cables. The option isn’t obvious, and it isn’t available for every splitter, but the 4 core sliders do work very well on the 4 core wires, and likewise for the 8 core sliders on 8 core cables.

    For Zen Sen’s pre-made cables, he’s happy to accommodate requests, and I’ve ordered a few with the 4 core slider specifically because of the issue you mention.

    In case it isn’t obvious, I’m a HUGE fan of EA’s cables, and Zen Sen himself. He’s truly a joy to work with, and it’s great to see him recognized outside a head-fi thread or two!
