I have the new Kudos speaker cable hooked up to my 808’s. For £30 a metre it shouldn’t be sounding this good
I was wondering about this, did it replace naca5?
Yes, it has
Just looked it up, the KS-1 looks interesting and at £30 per meter, bendy and in white
Can’t help thinking about the similarity with Chord Odyssey
Then please keep quiet about it or they’ll put the price up!
Branded most likely
Possibly a derivative of Chord Sarsen which Cymbiosis note is used in the internal wiring of Kudos speakers …
Should have added that Chord Sarsen is £8m per metre so a reasonable mark up to attain KS-1 status…
Sarsen is £8 @ metre…
Yes with SL cables.
Do you mean you had NACA5 with SL interconnects?
Sorry for any confusion
No Super Lumia speaker cables. They’re Naims high end cables.
My dealer mentioned that this is exactly the same cable as used inside the Kudos speakers…
I wouldn’t know but I’m sure some here will. I was a non believer till I bought a set. They’re made things a lot tighter and increased detail. Highly recommended.
Chord Sarsen was given 3 stars by what hi-fi
And called “cheap” feeling …at £8 a metre !!!
Over Nac A5 ??
I had those for years and replaced them with inexpensive set for Audioquest (I think) which was an improvement. The SL were a huge step up imo. The original speaker cables were over 20 years old, I’m not sure if they were meant to last that long.
Definitely, that’s what I am finding, much tighter bass with more detail and a more pronounced mid range. It’s certainly a quieter cable and time’s impeccably.
It is the same cable uses for the internal wiring Nd that must be why the two have great synergy.
The proof of the matter is when you come to put the original item back into your system. I have replaced the Kudos speaker cable with my NACA 5 and I am bored now, the sound is dull and lifeless in comparison.
Dpnt get me wrong, its still good but I know it can be better, its like putting my AMG back into comfort mode rather than sports plus mode!
