    WireWorld Platinum Series 8

    After I replaced the Wilson Alexias with the MBL 101E MK2s, I had to replace my speaker cables. The MBLs require double runs for each speaker. I did comparisons of a number of cable brands and models (not all of them!) and, ultimately, decided to got to Wireworld.

    Why? The MBLs are wired internally with WW. Also, after 3 weeks for comparisons with other brands, it was the WW Platinums that really made the 101E MK2's shine (not that others were bad!).

    I decided to tryout the WW Platinum Series 8 ICs as well. The experience was fantastic and exceeded my previous cables by a wide margin. So I ordered a few pairs. These are just arriving. I will post some more over the next few weeks.

    WireWorld Platinum Series 8

    Congrats for finding what suits your system and ears. Synergy is key.

    I’m going through a similar exercise with ICs, it’s quite fun.

    I just ordered a pair of the WW Platinum Eclipse 8 balanced for my new Lumin X1.
    Any idea how long these cables take to break in?

    My experience with them is that they sound pretty darn good out of the box. You will not have to deal with inconsistent performance as they break in.

    Re: WireWorld Platinum Series 8

    Congratulations Mike.

    When it came time for new cables for me, Mike recommended the Wireworld Platinum Eclipse 8. I was a little hesitant for no other reason other than cost but I trust him.

    Holy cow, they were great out of the box but now smooth and sweet and clear. Love them.
