Blue Jeans Cable Listening Tests and Conclusion
Listening tests on cables? You gotta be kidding. Not really. Cables can and do sound different - bad ones that is. Bad and Blue Jeans aren't synonymous terms. Despite these cables measured well as predicted, I decided to do some listening tests to appease the audiophiles that pray to their cables.
With my whole system wired up in this cable, I popped in Pat Metheny's
This is a phenomenal CD, and in my opinion contains some of Pat Metheny's
finest work to date.
Playing the 26 minute song titled
in PLIIx Music Mode sounded
Pat's guitars sounded chocolately.
Music reproduction using
the Blue Jean 10AWG speaker cables was as good as I ever heard on my reference system.
tight and full, guitars were fluid and articulate, drums were dynamic, cymbal crashes were airy just as
they should be on a great system with quality room acoustics and of course quality cables.
If you are looking for a beautiful cable that will dazzle your friends and transform your system into musical nirvana, look elsewhere. These cables aren't for you. If however, you are looking for a no-nonsense, affordable cable that will do no harm to your system, make no pretenses of splitting the atom, or redefining the laws of relativity, than look no further than Blue Jeans Cable.
With the flexibility of customizing cable lengths, termination types to your needs, CL3 approval for behind drywall installations, and choosing between pre-terminated convenience or self terminating cost savings options, you simply cannot go wrong. Their sliding price scale which decreases with increasing order size makes for a great solution for custom installers running cabling through a pre-construction house for whole home audio solutions. Highly Recommended!
