Bottom Line:   
I STARTED OFF WITH THE FINE RIBBON
AND WAS BLOWN AWAY AND THAT CABLE
IS SO SWEET ON THE MIDS AND HI'S
IT FUNNY. THE DIFFERENCE IS IMMEDIATE
AND THE NEXT DAY WAS EVEN BETTER. TWO
WEEKS IS THE RECOMMENDED TIME FOR BREAK IN BUT WHEN A CABLE IS REALLY GOOD
YOU CAN TELL RIGHT AWAY ESPECIALLY
WHEN IT YOUR PERSONAL SYSTEM THAT
YOU KNOW SO WELL. THE ULTIMATE RIBBON
IS BUY FAR THE BEST PURE SILVER CABLE
TO DATE. THE CABLE IS VERY STOUT AND
YOU CAN TELL THAT THERE IS A HELL OF ALOT
OF SILVER IN THERE. THE BASS EXTENSION
AND OVERALL SPEACTRUM IS MIND BLOWING.
A VERY CLASSY LOOKING AND EXTREMELY WELL
AND OVERBUILT PRODUCT TO SAY THE LEAST.

Bottom Line:   
Can a cable be MORE important then a component. You will not believe what these cables can do.
Since I have been a customer from 1997 one day I got a heavy box in the mail, presents! Inside was not 1, or 2, but 4 Stealth cables to try! I was truly blessed and very excited.
I started with the "lowest" model and moved up. I was so impressed with the copper cables (PC), I put my MIT MH750s on Ebay right away. The Ribbons (FR) had so much speed and clarity with a real solid image I knew it was going to get better.
I was also given a pair of "test" fine Litz silver cables and I was then blown away. You flat could not hear the speakers at all, it was like the sound was exisiting in the air. the walls had been blown out! These I purchased. Then I put in the URs. These have no sonic signature whatsoever! The bass was positively subteranean and the highs, more than real as they extend into infinity! I so appreciated my tube DAC (CAL Alpha). These were truly something very special. Very much so. The power they conveyed with a subtlety and grace beyond words was enthralling. I was hooked bad. I loved the Space the Litz gave me but the awesome aplomp of the UR, that bass! Digging deep (and selling off my other cables) I obtained the biamp module for my speakers and another power amp. I use the URs on below 500Hz and the Litz on the highs. Glorious, glorious, supreme transparency and seemingly from DC to light. The best of All worlds, audio nirvana..
Later I unearthed a nice Harmon Kardon A50K intergrated amp in my garage, no idea from where, it was filled with the original Telefunken tubes from 1962. I ordered another pair of URs, just 1.5m. Setup a pair of ADS L810 speakers, an Audio Alchemy DDSIII-DTI 2.0- I2S- XDP DAC with Stealth Varidig and M-7 IC. It was a test, the cables cost far more then the components. What a little wonder it is. People become glued to the chair. the central image is soo scary, I mean Miles Davis_was_ standing before me and blowing his heart out. I could practically scratch Ani DiFranco on the nose, and when Bela Fleck and the guys jamed the incredible dimensionality of this EVENT was as immersive as a surrround system just by itself. The URs add absolutely nothing to the sound. Transparent is an understatement and the physicality of the image with the tube amp is profound. My highest recommendation. Also please try his Power Cables

Bottom Line:   
Reviewers in the early years of The Absolute Sound used to talk about Yin
and Yang, meaning roughly light and dark, and whether a given component was
one or the other. It wasn't that Yin was better than Yang, or vice
versa--they were simply different, though one might fit better into a given
system. In comparing Premier and Ultimate Ribbon speaker cables, I
remembered this, and classified Premier as Yin and UR as Yang. Premier
tended toward the dark, UR toward the light, though Premier was lively
enough when the music itself was, while UR was never "bright" in a
fatiguing way. With Quad ESL 63's, I preferred UR. I made the comparison
with 8' cables, and then acquired a pair of Atma-Sphere M60 II monoblocks
and went to 18" UR cables. That change improved the sound greatly! I felt
that I was much closer to the music than before, in the sense of hearing
more of what the musicians were doing, hearing those small sonic details
that create a powerful sense of "liveness" about a performance.

Later still, I upgraded to a later version of the 18" UR's, and again the
improvement was, as the reviewers say, "not subtle". It was striking, and
I've been living very happily with it in my Quad ESL system ever since.

I moved the 8' UR and Premier cables into a recently completed system
featuring Oris 150 horns with Eminence Kappa Pro 12 woofers sitting below
them. The Premiers go to the woofers and seem perfect for that use, with
their huge power-handling capability. The UR's let the Oris 150 horns
really sing, and that's my favorite system for both chanber music and "big"
orchestral music or big band jazz.

My previous commercial speaker cables were MIT CVT Terminators and Audio
Magic Spellcasters. My present Stealth cables, Premier and UR, are vastly
better!

Bottom Line:   
I own the following Stealth cables: PGS 3-D I/C, Ultimate Ribbon sprkr. cables and the Cloud 9 P/Cs. These cables, in my opinion, are in a league of their own in delivering music of all types and recording quality in the most musical manner that I have ever heard. The sound is neutral and intoxicating with a sense of quietness and harmonic rightness that has unseated some very good cables in my system. If you would like to enjoy all your music with size without sounding loud, if you want to hear inner detail with delicacy and perfect tone you must try these cables. You have nothing to lose, Serguei stands behind his products and is a true gentleman. I've been in Hi-End audio for over 20 years and this is the first time I have been totally satisfied with my sound and that is because of being completely cabled with Stealth. My system consists of: Wadia 850, Bel Canto eVo 200.4 and Wilson WATTS. Electrical and mechanical issues have also been dealt with.

Bottom Line:   
The UR replaced my Kimber 3038!


I guess that says enogh about how good the UR
really are. You got the sparkling highs, silky smooth
texture and valvet-like background from best silver
cables (like Kimber 3038). But UR also gives you the
solid, body full and punchy bass which Kimber is
a bit shy about. I didn't really think all the above can
come together from a speaker cable but UR does it!
