Strength:

Smooth and dynamic very exciting and pleasing

Weakness:

Lack of natural colors in accoustic instruments recordings

Very pleasing and dynamic sound as long as you don't play solo piano or accoustic string quartet recordings. Then the timbre of the instruments is not natural. It becomes metalic. Very exciting on all kind of jazz and rock music. Anything but classical.

Strength:

Very detailed, airy and neutral, the best I have heard and a reference.

Weakness:

Do not bend the cable too much or you could dammage the connectors.

After having tested a lot of interconnect cables (wireworld, Nordost, qued), I have discovered the YBA Diamond - a world of difference ! This one really highlights all the instruments composing the music you are listing to where the others only make a nice mixture of sound. Diamond gives an airy sound. Everything become bright and clear without emphasising the bass or the treble - very natural ! On tweak : It is possible to relise your Diamond yourself by bying 2 x 1,23 meter. Then, use WBT connectors otherwise it becomes too tricky. The result is very good but nunfortunately not as airy as the original one. In a few words, once you have acquired an YBA Diamond cable, you don't have to look after a good interconnect anymore as this cable suits to a lot of systems and especially with tube amplifiers. You know you're OK for a very long time !

Strength:

Focused, sharp

Weakness:

Female voices sound awfull, poor performance for large chorus

I have a YBA system (CD1, Pre + Amp 2) and Acoustic Energy 1 Signature and YBA Minimum Speakers. On both configurations, the Wireworld outperformed the YBA Diamond, while costing less.

The YBA Diamond cables are the best cables I have tried.They are more concise , extended and quieter than Transparent Audio Ultra and they cost half as much.

Being in the market for a high-end cable, I tried several rave-reviewed
things including the Kimber KCAG, Cardas Golden Cross, Magnan Vi and the
YBA Diamond. The YBA is the most transparent, detailed cable above them
all. It just can make the sound more focused and cleaner no matter how
transparent you think your system is. If yor ever thought your system a
bit fuzzy, unfocused and looking for more detail and delicacy, YBA is the
one you gotta audition!

If you have YBA electronics it makes sense to use YBA Diamond cables. They have been specifically designed to interface with their electrical characteristics. Cables should be regarded as part of the audio circuit. For best results it is imperative to use cables that match perfectly. YBA Diamond cables may not work well in some systems because they do not match. On the other hand some cables may work well with YBA gear too (Cardas Neutral Reference). All in all they are well built and engineered. Why look for something else when you know Diamonds are the best?

Strength:

DEEP SOUNSTAGE,BASS EXTENTION,AIRY SILKY SMOOTH.

Weakness:

NON

Nothing to touch it at price point,need to run in & I mean run in or it will sound bright & edgy, but proper run in will be rewarded with silky smooth sound , deep sounstage with bass extention, & very very detail, I used it between
'dac' to pre & between pre to power. should be given 10 gold star,this is the cable to own,funny though I don't feel any itch to change it.
