    Re: Cardas Clear vx Clear Beyond XLR

    Yes, indeed I have. The Clear Beyond are a different pair of shoes.

    Gone is is the smoothing effect on the treble. The Clear Beyond are truly neutral. Also bass extension is significantly better....

    The finish is really immaculate, 7-layer coating I believe.

    Kharma - what’s in a signature edition

    Hi AJR, the Kharmas are really a treat.

    I’ve had them for about 5 months in my system, and I guess they’re about burned-in now. I still hear small improvements happening in the top-end, details,...

    Unfortunately I only compared the ICs, as I have different speaker cables (InAkustik Reference AIR LS-4004).

  8. Re: Inducing clarity: Cardas Clear Beyond interconnects

    I do agree, in the level of micro-detail retrieval and bass depth the Clear Beyond really stands out.

    Re: Kharma - what’s in a signature edition

    Probably a smart move. I found the move from S3 mk1 to S3 mk2 to be a significant improvement, but moving to the Kharma double niners would be an even bigger gain.

    I hope you get a chance to hear...

    Kharma - what’s in a signature edition

    IMHO, if you’re into the Sabrina X price range, don’t go get them - run. For the money, they’re an outstanding speaker.

    Re: Kharma - what’s in a signature edition

    Well Mike, the MBLs definitely are destination speakers. So congrats for your decision.

    And I also agree with what you say about Kharmas. They in a way blend transparency and full-bodiedness.

    Nice to find another Edison mk2 owner, indeed a very nice phono pre.

    I also agree with your statement, there are better but you need to cough up the big bucks to get something beyond.

    Re: Kharma - what’s in a signature edition

    Hi Khin, the bass in particular is more fun, more lively, more solid. You’re getting very easily pulled into the music. As a result, music is more engaging.

    Incorrect. Magico S1 mk1 tweeter is Magico in-house made (motor etc.), although using external diaphragm. Unless you of course know something Alon doesn’t. The Kharma tweeter is indeed ScanSpeak...

    Re: Kharma - what’s in a signature edition

    I'm very pleased with the choice. It's a more complete speaker vs. the Magico S3 or S3 mk2, which I both used to own.

    Bass is in a totally different league, the sound is fuller and has more bass...

    As everything you’ve ever disseminated on this forum, that’s complete BS. You’ve never owned any of these brands, so how would you possibly know?
