I just received my 10 foot pair of Pro 9 Reference
SE's and put them in my system in place of some fairly expensive ($6k)
cables. I was expecting there to be lower performance in your cable, but
right out of the box I would say your cables at almost 1/4 the price, are nearly
their equals. And they havent' even broken in yet!
Bravo Jim, this is one incredible speaker
Folks, Regardless of what others try to convince you of, whether they are just cheap, have an agenda other than enjoying music, have crappy gear, or hearing that isn't able to detect differences (through hearing loss, or untrained ears), there is a level of difference associated with cables. You usually get what you pay for provided you do your homework.
But this cable really does offer more than what I am used to hearing at this price point. Quite a bit more actually.
I am going to say that Harmonic Technlogy Pro 9 Reference SE has set a new performance benchmark for speaker cables at the$1500 price point.
