    Re: New Cardas cables in the house

    Today I completed my Cardas cable upgrades. As shown in my signature all of my cables to my components are Cardas Clear line of cables. Only the ehternet cables are of another brand. My pockets aren't that deep. I chose Supra Cat8 audio 2.0 USB and ethernet for my digital end. My SVS subs just use basic AudioQuest power cords.

    I have to say my system has never sounded so musical, clear, detailed. There is a calm and natural energy to my system like I have never heard before.

    Re: New Cardas cables in the house

    I have never tried a Cardas cable. I live three hours away from them. I have met both Mr. and Mrs. and bought some of their connectors from them when I had my hobby audio business. Same with Tara. I hope your new items work well for you.
