Bottom Line:   
This product is to cables what the Mona Lisa is to paintings. It is an expression of the best technology available today for interconnects. You can take issue with the obscene price, the validity of A/B testing or the merits of networks but you can't dispute the end result: Lifelike imaging, tomb like backgrounds, pure unadulterated transmission of all your stereo equipment has to offer. I will never own a brand of cables other than Transparent.

These cables do require break-in. Mine took 50 hours to settle down.

Bottom Line:   
Outrageous pricing. Difficult to swallow until you experience an audition for the first time. Should be perceived as a component within one's system. There is a strong argument for your system to operate as one contiguous unit and not separate entities. Companies such as Spectral, Naim etc, advocate this. These cable personify this and more. There is no room to be skeptical until you have heard them within a competent high-end installation. Users of the Wilson/Watt Puppy or Revel systems will be in for a big surprise.
Without argument, in my view, this company offers the finest connectivity available today. Musically they offer game, set & match!
Thanks for reading.
