- Data sheet
Summer cable is known from the professionals. According to the motto “what’s good for the professionals must also work in the home system” wants you to mix with Excelsior’s new series now also the home-HiFi and HighEnd area. The Badener chose a coaxial construction with silver plated copper inner conductor, silver-plated minus-head braid plus copper braid as additional shielding. The plugs are quite large and place claiming.
The Excelsior on the home system with Linn Linto and Bryston amplifiers played phonetically something loud bass enough with deep felt. Also the Accuphase KEF chain sounded stronger and formed off the stage slightly wider than about with cheaper cables.
