Review of Way Cables Silver 3 interconnects, Silver 2 speaker cables and Silver 3 jumpers by Andrew Lam from Hong KongHi Miroslav, Well, to recap my feeling of your cables and no doubt that I am very pleased to have it all. I can hear the difference of better width, depth and overall sound stage when compared to the others. Most importantly that the noticeable of space and silence between instrumental details, the full body of music, the texture, and full range performance delivered without any harshness of sound. I am so pleased to be the user of your cables and, also happy to recommend to my friends, or some local hi-fi buddies too. A weeks before I have loaned the cables to two of my friends and they impressed with its very good performance. One said that it can produce the prestige acoustic details and the other found the enjoyable tune & emotional appreciation of usage.

Thanks and best regards,

Andrew Lam, Hong Kong, June 19, 2015


Way-Cables-Silver-3-interconnects--user-review-DanielHello Mr. Popovic,

I would like to inform you that I am happy with the results of Way cables Silver 3 (KLEI Pure) RCA after ten-day testing in my setup (Cyrus CD i >> Rega Elex R amp.>> Elac FS 147 speakers). I got a nice sound improvement with Silver 3 interconnects, so I will keep them.

Kind regards,

Daniel WüstMunich, Germany, June 16, 2015


Way-Cables-IC-Silver-3-recommendation-igorYou were right; Silver 3 is more suitable to my system. The sound got muscles. I just bought it!

Regards and all the best,

Igor M. Belgrade, Serbia, December 31. 2014


Silver 3 between DAC & AMP: much balanced, more stable, more detailed. especially in medium and low tones. Stereo image is convincing, etc. It is worth the effort and money.

Review of WAY CABLES interconnect SILVER 2 by Mateusz Smardz POLANDHi Ljuba, it took me some time but I finally had enough time to properly audition the Silver 2. Marcin accompanied me. We’re both kinda skeptical so that’s good in a way…

The system we used:

  1. ultra transparent JBL L90 monitors
  2. heavily modified Philips CD360 cd player with TDA1541S1 chipsets
  3. Accuphase E207 amplifier
  4. gain clone amplifier
  5. kimber cable speaker cables (the ones that I brought to your place)

The system itself plays excellent. Clear highs, punchy bass and everything in between is great. Don’t want to go into the details because it’s boring but we were actually able to hear the difference on the WAY cables.

And it was a good difference. Highs got cristal clear but without any harshness to it, the scene got more air, the resolution became better, all instruments and tones got separated better and the bass had this nice accent to it. All and all – it works :)

Of course a simple cable (because in the stereo-system-department a cable is really a simplest element) won’t make any difference in already crappy system. Then if you have an already great system the cables seem essential – cherry topping in a way. But you already know this :)

So I am fairly certain about the quality and would like to help you guys with the subject of making it possible here in Poland.

Best,

Way Cables Silver 2 and Dynamic 2 interconnects review by Doug Taylor, UKWAY CABLES – Silver 2 and Dynamic 2 – A review by Doug Taylor Part one (April 14, 2015)

Firstly I feel I need to introduce myself, my name is Doug, I am 66 years of age and started my interest in Hi-Fi around 1972 when a work colleague showed me his “music listening machinery”! Over the years there has been many changes and only recently I felt really quite happy with my set-up… that is until Mr Popovich came along!

The cables arrived very quickly and well packaged; no damage here. I connected the Way Cables Silver 2 interconnect from Audiolab 8200 CD player to my Denon 1911 AV receiver and the Dynamic 2 interconnect from Trichord Dino phono stage to same amplifier.

Immediately found sound from both cables to be smoother, fuller, wider soundstage and so right from the start I had a smile on my face! Prolonged listening became more joyful and I was hearing things in recordings that I didn’t know were there, my previous cables were excellent but these Way cables were surpassing them easily.

I firstly listened to the Silver 2 with CD playback. Everything was right there, bass going deep but controlled, mid range open and honest and treble smooth and sweet, every word from the Kate Bush “The Kick Inside” was audible and when I played Patricia Barber’s “Companion” well, goodness me, there she was in my room playing personally for me… it was so, so real. I got carried away with saying she was in the room but… I think you know what I mean.

Vinyl playback from Clearaudio Concept TT > Dynavector 10×5 MC cartridge > Trichord Dino phono stage > Way Cables Dynamic 2 interconnects. The same things going on again, lots more information coming through my Rega R5 speakers, the bass going deep but now with a little more slam / tightness… nice! My vinyl copy of Genesis “The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway” has never sounded so clear; you feel closer to what is going on. My Deutsche Grammophon recording of Stravinsky “Rite of Spring” was really, really thrilling!

If you have badly recorded material, these cables will make them sound, well… more BAD!

Part two (April 21, 2015)

Way-Cables-Silver-2-and-Dynamic-2-interconnects-review-by-Doug-Taylor-UK-2So now I swap the cables around, Dynamic 2 connected to cd player and Silver 2 connected to vinyl playback. Lets start with the Silver 2 running from Trichord Dino phono stage to my Denon 1911… so the vinyl is turning on the platter and the arm gently lowers… what on earth is happening!! No, I don’t like this… where has the clarity gone, oh dear!!

Ah… hang on, just a minute, which way are the pointers facing on the bamboo marker rings… oops!! Silly me… cables connected wrong way round!! Don’t make this mistake, I was overkeen to get things started, these are directional cables and must be used as intended.

So we start again and of course the gorgeous rich tone of Sade’s voice comes shining through, it’s all there, good soundstage, clear vocals, timing, sweet top end and the clarity. This really is a lovely cable.

Now we move over to the Dynamic 2, connected I might add the correct way round to my Audiolab 8200 cd player and of course Denon 1911. WOW! This is what I have been looking for in an interconnect, this is wonderful stuff, clear, open, superb mid range with voice clarity, bass going a little deeper but still precise, amazing soundstage. I can see why Mr Popovich calls this cable Dynamic… this is the best yet that I have heard from these cables and obviously for me a good match with the Audiolab 8200 CD player, the Sabre 32 bit dac is fitted to this player.

CONCLUSION

My conclusion is that both cables, Silver 2 and Dynamic 2, are superb performers and we know they will sound a little different with different equipment. For me personally, I prefer the Dynamic 2, I have been listening now for nearly 2 weeks, maybe a couple of albums at a time rather than prolonged listening as this can be fatiguing. I must encourage anyone reading this review to give these cables a try out, I am sure you will not regret it, I am buying another pair of the Dynamic 2. GREAT STUFF!

One last thing, Mr Popovich of Way Cables is a really nice guy and from my experience I know he is understanding of us audiophiles and how we strive to get the best from our music. Thank you.

Doug Taylor Louth, UK, April 14-21, 2015


Way-Cables-IC-Silver-4-recommendation-review-ljubaAfter a short conversation and tests of SILVER 2 and DYNAMIC 2 interconnect cables in your studio, I decided to take both cables. The reason for this was the possibility of a direct comparison of these two cables in my system, and of course the possibility to return cables within 14 days if they not suit in my system.

However, you were right for SILVER 2, which is really do much with my vintage NOS CD player; he gave him a lot of details, especially the treble and resolution, but in a very natural way. It seems that Silver 2 delivers more music than my previous cables (VDH D102 Mk III). Moreover, the stage is drastically increased.

DYNAMIC 2 has achieved a great role at the position between the preamplifier and amplifier. As its name says, he has given the dynamics of the music.

I hope that soon I will be able to test also SILVER 3 with KLEI plugs and to hear how it works with my components.

Best regards, Ljubisa Belgrade, Januar 26, 2014


Way-Cables-IC-Silver-2-recommendation-dejan-rWay Silver 2 is a fantastic interconnect. I was in dilemma do I really need a better cable in my system, but my FB friend was right when he suggested me a listening test of Way Silver, because I’m not obliged to buy it before listening. After half an hour of listening test, I decided to keep Way Silver 2 because they outclassed my Chord Cobra cables as a link between the Rega DAC and Rega Brio-R amplifier.

My recommendation. All the best in 2015!

Dejan R. Valjevo, December 28, 2014


Way-Cables-IC-Silver-2-recommendation-goranI bought interconnect Silver 2 with WireWorld plugs and I have only words of praise how they play in my Optonica vintage system, and brought them freshness, details and definition. Cables look nice + wooden package + booklet + serial number. I tested many cables and a lot of them replaced, but this one will not go anywhere out of my house. Only better Way cables may come. If you are looking for good cables, for New Year you can cheer yourself up with a bit of money compared to the sound that cables provide. It is hard to believe that today in Serbia exist Hi-Fi manufacturer with such quality, but a lot of effort is yielding results and therefore I want to congratulate!

Goran Belgrade, December 26, 2014


Way-Cables-IC-Silver-2-recommendation-review-jovanDear Mr. Popovic,

I am very pleased to write you that I became proudly owner of Way Cables Silver 2 interconnect and I use this opportunity to order one more pair with length 1.3 meters. Your cables work great and are immediately shows that are worth much more than they cost. I have QED’s, VDH’s, Audioquest’s in same price point and even more expensive interconnects, but they cannot get closer to Silver 2 performances. That’s why I want to give one set to my son as a New Year gift (please make them in the thick red cotton and with KLEI plugs). They look pretty and even my wife, which “greatest enemies in life” are cables, says that they are beautiful. Congratulations for achievement.

Wish you success in 2015!

Way Silver has become a new friend of my audio equipment 

As HiFi enthusiast, which constantly searches for better sound, I came across this wonderful website. I was impressed with everything I saw and read. Of course, my experience made me skeptical. However, I decided to give a chance WAY cables. I ordered WAY Silver on trial listening. Very quickly, I got a polite response to my email. I thought the cable from Belgrade will travel to me in Frankfurt at least two weeks, but I got it for 5 days, because WAY Cables sent their products from Slovenia and delivery is faster and cheaper.

So … Way Silver interconnect cable came into my hands. It was carefully prepared for transport. Beautiful wooden packaging and cable arrived undamaged.

What followed when I joined Silver in my system between the amplifier and CD player Roksan Caspian M2 in short I can describe as a sensational excitement. Music from my speakers PMC Twenty 23 (connected to amp with DH Labs Q-10 Signature speaker cables) began to sound more dynamic, more detailed and more balanced. When I returned my previous interconnect cable (rather more expensive than the Way Silver), I realized that the Silver did a musical picture deeper and more natural. God forgive me, but I could have sworn that the sound became bigger in my room.

No doubt, Way Silver has become a new friend of my audio equipment. Thank you for a great product!

Way Silver više spada u domen metafizike nego u Hi-Fi

Izvodi iz recenzije

S obzirom da imam dosta iskustva u testiranju raznih aktuelnih novih i polovnih HiFi komponenti, ne predstavlja mi problem da u relativno kratkom periodu odredim šta mi se dopada a šta ne, kao i razloge za odluku. No, moj sistem koji sam modifikovao par meseci pre kontakta sa momcima iz WAY Cables mi je zadao dosta muke. Naime, volim da se igram integrisanim pojačalima, te sam nabavio jedan od bisera nemačke audio tehnologije – T+A PA1530R. Radi se o odličnom, mišićavom pojačalu izuzetno preciznog i detaljnog zvuka. Nažalost, iako izvanredno, PA1530R poseduje nezgodnu osobinu uklapanja sa svim ostalim komponentama i posebno je osetljivo na kvalitet kako strujnog, tako i interkonekcijskih i zvučničkih kablova. Za razliku od njega, drugo pojačalo koje sam koristio, faktički pretpojačalo i snagaš – Metaxas Audio Systems Marquis i Solitaire odlično sarađuje sa bilo kojom pasivnom ili aktivnom komponentom. Metaxas, jednostavno, gleda da iz saradnika izvuče maksimum i da ga poštuje, dok PA1530R ponižava ukoliko ima prilike za to. No, hajde da se malo našalim i kažem da se tu završava priča sa PA1530R a počinje jedna druga jer… stigao je na test Silver, model iz vrha ponude WAY Cables.

… sa dosta visokom cenom od dve stotine i pedeset evra, za naše uslove Silver predstavlja prilično skup kabl. Da li vredi taj novac? Ja sam ga stavio na težak test: PA1530R već poseduje srebrne vodove za prenos audio signala na svojim pločama, kablovi do zvučnika su mešavina bakra i srebra a zvučnici su takođe nemački, Elac FS210 Anniversary, sa posebno razvijenim koaksijalnim jedinicama za srednje i visokotonsko područje. Iskustvo kaže da u ovakav sistem nije lako uklopiti kabl baziran na srebrnim vodovima jer je ionako dovoljno svetle zvučne puti.

… pitanje je jednostavno: šta se desilo kada je u sistem ušao Silver?

… to što je Silver učinio nezgodnom T+A PA1530R više spada u domen metafizike nego HiFi-ja. Kristalno čist, doveo je izvođača ispred mene i učinio da zvučnici praktično potpuno nestanu iz prostora. Mikrodinamika i fini detalji su se takođe blago pomerili ka meni, sa dodatnom dozom jasnog nastupa ali bez upliva iskričavosti što je česta pojava kod kablova baziranih na srebru, no ne i u ovom slučaju. Međutim, ono što me je fasciniralo jeste da je kompletna reprodukcija postala potpuno drugačija: pravi opis bi bio kao da se promenio vazduh između slušaoca i sistema, ne znam kako bih to drugačije opisao. Znate, često se desi da neke komponente vrše marginalno zamućenje zvučne slike koje se teško da primetiti a onda to vidite kada zamenite dotičnu komponentu ili čak više njih. Silver, sa druge strane, igra na jednoj tankoj, lucidnoj žici dodajući još jedan nivo direktnog pristupa slušaocu uz veliki rizik da bude pogrešno protumačen kao iskričav, oštar i tvrd. Ali, začudo, on nikada nije prišao toj granici da bih mogao da ga kvalifikujem kao opasnog, što je po meni izuzetan doprinos konstruktora pri tjuniranju zvuka ovog proizvoda – izvući sve najbolje a ne učiniti da kabl sam sebi postane antagonizam, jer srebro je varljivo i mora se koristiti sa oprezom u ovakvim slučajevima.

… no, ma kako izgledalo, sve što sam rekao je manje bitno u odnosu na glavnu osobinu Silver interkonekta. Mislio sam da je to skoro nemoguće, ali on je tako nežno ukrotio T+A PA1530, dodajući možda i previše preciznom nemačkom snagatoru dušu i pretvarajući ga od perfektnog vojnika u veliku, ozbiljnu divlju mačku koja sada voli da se pomazi sa vlasnikom. Od desetak probranih kablova koje sam probao na T+A PA1530 nijedan nije mogao da učini ono štonežno ukrotio T+A PA1530 je učinio Silver. Moje iznenađenje nije bilo malo i nastavlja se i sada dok pišem ovaj tekst, par meseci kasnije.

… krajnji rezultat je bio taj da sam vratio sve interkonekte vlasnicima/proizvođačima a zadržao Silver kao referencu u svom sistemu, s tendencijom da u budućnosti nabavim još par komada istog modela, ili modela Dynamic iz razloga da uživam u dve različite forme reprodukcije zvuka.

Fantastičan kabl!!!

I što ga više slušam sve je milozvučniji kako se usvirava…

Na prvu – dinamičan, detaljan, a mek i topao. Bas ima dobar atak, tranzijenti su hirurški precizni, a visoki detaljni i neumarajući.

Zakačio sam svoju Regu DAC na Conrad-Johnson CAV 50 pojačalo, a potom i na CEC amp3 PURE, a potom i na Philips AG 9018 da vidim da li gubi od opisanog, ali WAY Silver uvek ostaje sa svojom karakteristikom.

Moji, inače, veoma, veoma dobri Synergistic Research Synergy Cable interkonekti su postali u nijansama zamućeni…

Skromno ali dopadljivo pakovanje mu daje potpun šmek ozbiljnosti. Detalji prirode – pamučna oplata (pamuk ta paklena biljka zbog koje je proliveno mnogo krvi tokom istorije), bambusov prsten, itd – neuobičajeno je za Hi-Fi svet.

Mogu samo da preporučim WAY Silver interkonekt, željno očekujem zvučnički kabl.

Svaka čast i svaka podrška na entuzijazmu!

Way Dynamic definitivno spada u High-End kablove

Izvodi iz recenzije

Ukratko rečeno, Dynamic mi se izuzetno dopao: kada do beskraja ponavljate neku od baterija numera namenjenih za testiranja koje otkrivaju mane sistema i prikazuju njegove dobre osobine, na kraju naučite gde je mesto svakoj noti, koji nivo dinamike reprodukcije na vašem sistemu je prihvatljiv pri promeni jedne od komponenti, kako pauza unutar pesme treba da zvuči, gde se i kako tonovi završavaju i gde opet počinju i na koji način.

…nisam mogao da nađem očitu manu ni u apsolutnoj klasi, imajući u vidu interkonekcijske kablove koje sam do sada čuo. Sve je bilo na mestu, ni traga mehaničkoj, dosadnoj reprodukciji: glas mek i baršunast, mikrodetalji na mestu i predivni, ne pritiskaju slušni aparat slušaoca i prosto lebde oko njega. Svakih nekoliko sekundi bih se iznenadio sposobnošću Dynamic-a da prenese mikrodinamičke pomake i finese od izvora do pojačala.

WAY Dynamic je uneo dozu života, odlične trodimenzionalnosti i fenomenalnog basa koji je u stanju da pokupi i poslednju notu od izvora i dopremi je pojačalu, a dalje je red na njima da se bore. Bas koji tako često spominjem nije bitan sam za sebe već za ukupan ritam koji je u reprodukciji Dynamic-a veoma bitna stavka i odražava srž njegove reprodukcije. Ovaj interkonekt po svojim zvučnim karakteristikama definitivno spada u High-End kablove. Za dve stotine evra koliko košta čini mi se kao značajna kupovina na duži rok ukoliko imate sistem koji može da ga podrži.

Zaista sam fasciniran!

Interkonekt Way Attack je poboljšao zvuk mog sistema kao da sam kupio bolje pojačalo i CD. Moj skromni ali voljeni sistem propevao je kao nikada do sada. Muzika je dobila više detaljnosti i ritma i ja sam oduševljen. Više nema one tamne senke u srednjim i visokim tonovima. Kao da je neko nešto pročistio. Bas udara nisko i duboko. Zvuk je sada mnogo prostraniji. Uživam i shvatam šta znače dobri kablovi. Hvala!

Ufffff, što ovo dobro svira!

Izvodi iz recenzije

… Čim sam počeo da slušam sistem moja reakcija svela se na uzdah: „Ufffff, što ovo dobro svira“. Silver bukvalno otvara jedan autoput od pojačala ka zvučnicima, scena postaje živa po dubini i jasno radi pri reprodukciji živih snimaka. Ritam je i dalje fenomenalan, ali me je oduševila tolika doza transparentnosti da se skoro ne može opisati rečima: apsolutno ni traga od oštrog „srebrnog“ zvuka, bez tačkice favorizovanja nekog dela spektra. Scena i, još više, prirodnost su tako dobre da sam ispred sebe imao lik Rebecce Pidgeon i „Spanish Harlem“ sa albuma Pidgeon, koju je sada pevala samo za mene. Imao sam sam utisak da bih mogao da ustanem i zagrlim je čestitajući na sjajnoj obradi numere, samo da sam hteo. Neverovatno, skoro kao halucinacija, sa emocijama koje vibriraju tiho u duši i teraju suze na oči.

Prelazak na Toma Odella i numeru Grow Old With Me u potpunosti je otkrio njenu divnu, nežnu, dečiju lepotu i pratio je kao kada gledate kako vam dete odrasta: pesma je sazrevala, pretvarala se od osetljive i krhke do brze i snažne, prosto je briljirala a prateći glasovi i instrumenti u pozadini su dobili nekakav vazduh oko sebe, svoj deo prostora kakav do sada nisu imali. Da li bih dao sto evra više za ovaj kabl, koliko je Silver skuplji od inače sjajnog Dynamic-a? Ne bih razmišljao ni sekunde, odmah bih to učinio pod uslovom da imam sistem koji može da ga podrži.

Prelazak na lucidnu numeru Lucky Man sastava The Verve jasno spaja glasove izvođača ali ih u gomili možete razaznati pojedinačno. Kao da gledate gustu šumu u kojoj možete da vidite svako drvo iako su mnoga ispreplitana granama drugih stabala. Sistem više ne mora da ističe bilo koje stablo iz šume da bi rekao „ovo je to drvo“! To je za mene pojam prirodnosti i definicije. A to upravo postiže Silver na mom sistemu.

Uskoro sam se vratio sjajnom Seal-u i akustičnom albumu koji sadrži obradu njegovog velikog hita – Love’s Divine. Sealov hrapavi ali umirujući glas ocrtan je uz pratnju akustičnih gitara tako da prosto poželite da ovu numeru vrtite beskonačno. Osećajna, topla i napravljena iz ljubavi, ocrtana je kako nikada nisam čuo na svojim uređajima. Iako sam je slušao stotinama puta, primetio sam neke emotivne prelaze i detalje koje ranije nisam registrovao, tok nota koji je kao voda.

Malo je reći da sam bio iznenađen, Silver treba da je dobar, ali ne ovoliko. Košta 490 evra za dužinu 2 x 2 metra, kao par solidnih novih zvučnika, kao jako dobar CD plejer ili vrlo dobro pojačalo… ali za mene vredi svaki evro, jer znam da kabl neće biti usko grlo ili karika koja nedostaje u mom sistemu.

Probajte Dynamic da biste videli šta vaše pojačalo i zvučnici zaista mogu

Izvodi iz recenzije

… Prvo što mi je palo na pamet jeste „Probajte Dynamic da biste videli šta vaše pojačalo i zvučnici zaista mogu“. Uz dobre slušalice (AKG Q701 Quincy Jones, na primer), možete mnogo toga saznati o kvalitetu izvora, interkonekcijskih kablova i pretpojačavaču a nekada i o celom pojačavačkom stepenu, zavisno od kvaliteta izrade. Ali, krajnji finiš zvuka zvučnicima daje žica koja nosi strujno i naponski pojačani audio signal. A Dynamic je baš ono što treba: široki put koji ne predstavlja usko grlo da bi signali nesmetano tekli.

Ne želim da se ponavljam, ali sve ono što je rečeno za WAY Cables interkonekcijske kablove važi i ovde. Ritmika… dinamika… fenomenalna detaljnost, vazdušasti prostor oko instrumenata i jedan od najboljih basova koje sam ikada čuo na sistemima do 10.000 evra – svi su bili tu. Udarac u bubanj (Eric Clapton – Blue Eyes Blue ili Dire Straits – Private Investigations) oseća se kao da potiče iz zvučnih kutija bar 50% veće zapremine, kao da je do sada bio sputavan a onda je eksplodirao svuda po prostoriji. Mikrodinamičke promene i sitni, majušni detalji, glasovi publike u pozadini… sve je to nekako isplivalo iz mraka.

Ne bi bilo fer da ne navedem kako je Dynamic jednostavan za uklapanje sa svim komponentama. Nemačko pojačalo T+A PA1530R koje je bilo jedno od dva korišćena za ovaj test, počelo je prilično nezgodno da otkriva mane jevtinije produkcije i lošijih snimaka. To je najpre počelo da se događa, jer su ukupna rezolucija i difinicija sistema porasle, pa se, recimo, jasno razdvajao glas pevača i pratećih vokala. Da napomenem, imao sam davno jedan test disk na kojem su snimljena dva čoveka koji govore isti tekst na različiti način, tako da jedan kreće da ga govori od početka do kraja, a drugi jednako smisleno od kraja do početka. Ukoliko možete da razumete obojicu, vaš sistem ima dobru rezoluciju. Takav sistem je kod mene standard poslednjih petnaestak godina i to nije problem, ali ovo što sam čuo uz Dynamic je podiglo reprodukciju za jedan osetni nivo više, toliko da nisam pretpostavljao kako je to moguće uz ove komponente koje posedujem. Zbog svega toga su nastali i problemi: neka muzika nije više tako lepo zvučala, osećala su se ograničenja i uživanje u njoj nije bilo kao pre. Ali drugi snimci (nezavisno od žanra, recimo Diane Krall ili živi snimak Erica Claptona) su blistali. Čak je i album Love sastava The Cult pokazao zavidan nivo dinamike i rokerskog ludila.

Izuzetan odnos cene i kvaliteta

Izvodi iz recenzije

..WAY Cables Engage zvučnički kabl, po meni, pruža sve što treba da se pruži u kvalitetnom audio sistemu. Ne spada on u high end, ali je odličan za sisteme visoke klase i eventualno srednje ukoliko možete da ga priuštite. Dynamic je bolji, svakako: njegova scena je više ispunjena, šira i bolje se oseća vazduh između instrumenata. Bas je malčice puniji a srednji i visoki tonovi imaju nešto više mikrodetalja. U dinamici nisam uspeo da primetim neke značajnije razlike. Za mene, ta razlika je suštinski sledeća: ako forsirate sistem koji treba da ima ultimativnu rezoluciju, onda je Dynamic svakako u prednosti. No, ako ste zadovoljni i sistemom nešto niže rezolucije ali vam je bitno da prirodnost ostane, Engage može da posluži kao sasvim dobro rešenje.

Ne mogu da ne pomenem kako sam pomislio da Engage poseduje izuzetan odnos kvalitet/cena. Nije to mala cifra, za 180 evra danas se kupuje solidan polovan CD plejer ili pojačalo. Ali gledajte to ovako: zvučnički kablovi su cipele koje nosi audio sistem. Ukoliko su neudobne sistem će da hramlje, a cilj je da se kreće slobodno kao da cipele ne postoje.

Proizvođač mi je naglasio da su cene Engage linije kablova formirane tako da vrhunski kablovi budu pristupačniji ljubiteljima dobrog zvuka sa skromnijim finansijskim mogućnostima i stoga je cena Engage kablova značajno niža nego njihov sonični kvalitet u odnosu na skuplje WAY kablove.
