Strength:

A great cable at a great price. Does it compete with a $200 cable, don't know, wouldn't buy one. Before you buy that $200 cable, try one of these. Borrow the $200 cable and compare. Maybe a very high end set-up will find the $200 worth it?

Weakness:

Can't think of 1. Well designed and constructed. For the price its killer.

I'm a bit skeptical about some things. I did a little research and thought I would try these cables out. These are the AR Pro Series II Ht130 cables. Gray colored, very thick cable with gold plate rca's. They are very well constructed cables, although I am sure there are better, but not at the price I paid. I replaced my Rat Shack cables and I could easily see a big difference in quality between the two. However I was not expecting to hear a big difference. I was wrong on that. The difference was clearly audible. CD's did have a better noticeable clarity across the sound spectrum. Bass was improved, midrange cleaner, and high's dramatic. I was not really expecting to hear a big difference...so a pleasant surprise for me. I am giving it a 5 and 5 for performance and for value, realizing the cable usually retails at $27. At $2 its a 5.5.

Strength:

Considering the price.....everything! Disregaurding the price......it's ability to reproduce music very well.They literally squash cables costing 10x by other manufactures.Must be heard to be beleived!

Weakness:

"Slight" lack of lower bass.

I bought this cable just to prove Echo Audio's claim to be just another crock. OH WELL!! All the claims about this very inexpensive cable are true!It is breathtaking to say the least! I use it between my Njoe Tjoeb 4000 (W/627 op amps & '60s Amperexes)& an Audio Research LSII mkII. The result is MUSIC! Very detailed,great image,not a trace of harsness & a degree of harmonic texture that will drop your jaw. Wife thought I had bought another component....You get the idea, a hugh improvement for NO money!
