Bottom Line:   
Doing a comparatice tests with a bunch of cables near its price point :
This cable has the hallmarks of a cable that presents a cohesion timing of the portrayal of a musical event,akin to cables as Van den HUL D102. Only a bit drier but nevertheless sounding more agile especially in the bass articulation.

While the VDH may sound a hint of nasality in voice with speakers not quite fast enough, the cambridge manages to cross in betweeen the lines of using mid end vifas to dynaudios.

This is a cable that is not quite talked about but it is able to do justice with its associated value. It is similar to the likes of Tributaries sca 100. Notice vdh and Trib's are silver on coppper cables, i believe it's material may be same.

Cables it is able to stand up against:
QED Qnex2
Kiber pbj
Soniclink Pink
Chord chorus

Bottom Line:   
I thought I had a reasonable interconnecting cable between my CD and amp but tried an offer of a selection of 'loan' cables from the dealer to try out. The Studio Reference cables were by far the best of the selection, with only QED Qnex2 being a worthy rival. The improved clarity of the music and stereo image was impressive, maybe a bit more clinical and dynamic than the qnex2 but the most enjoyable to listen to. There was just more 'presence' to much of the music. A substantial improvement over cheaper interconnects around and would satisfy all but the most critical audiophile with loads of money to spend on cables.

Bottom Line:   
this no doubt amore than averege cable, it sounds very musicl, realistic and involving.
but there's a strange two faced nature to it: one one hand it is very pleasent warm non harsh loads and loads of fun to listen to, onthe other hand it is too energetic and lows are noticably bommy- though the most realistic bass drum and cymbals i've heard for a long time/
very good indeed/

Bottom Line:   
I have used them connected to the ever famous cambridage audio CD4Se and A3i. Earlier thought of being on the budget and use the Audio Pacific. Ask the dealer to try the Studio Reference to see if there is any difference for the big jump in price. Personally , I am sceptical and thought I can't hear the difference since I am new in HiFi. To my surprise...wow..the soudstage difference were so significant , so much clearer are the sound compared to teh pacific. And of course I end up with the Studio Reference. Even the internal of the CD4SE are using the Studio Reference... so the Cambridge guy should have known that this is best value for sound and $$$.
