Several months ago, George Vatchnadze of Kyomi Audio brought over a Lumin network music player for me adios audition.

When he left the Lumin he also inadvertently left a digital cable. Over the next several weeks I had folks over for listening sessions and interchanged the Sextete and Echelon, and every one of them preferred the Sextet, which was also my adios. That was a good decision. The specific cable being reviewed here is the VT, which incorporates an optional tuning collar that allows you to adjust the Sextet to your particular system. The impedance matching variable-along-the-lengths Varidig geometry can only be handmade including its hand-formed Teflon insulation.

The Varidig Sextet is not available in the bulk — spooled, unterminated form, it cannot be machine-made or cheaply reproduced or copied overseas. Again, from the. Stealth website:. The cable itself is very flexible, with an attractive white outer jacket. After years wdios dealing with extremely heavy and stiff cables, I find the Stealth cables to be a joy to use I also own will separately review the Stealth Sakra analog interconnect.

I sectete mentioned that I opted for the optional tuning collar. Sextete tuning collar allows you to fine-tune the sound so that it best matches your system.

Stealth recommends that you allow the Sextet to break in for about two weeks before working sextete the tuning collar. I have a fairly high-resolving system and I had no trouble discerning the differences in sound as I moved the tuning collar in small increments along the cable. I finally settled on a location about 4 inches from the transmission end of the Sextet, though I expect to do further fine-tuning whenever I introduce changes to my system.

The snug fit is desirable, but make sure you have good clear access to the back panel of your gear so that you insert the plug straight-on.

When the connector sextefe first connected, the Teflon cylinder expands to adios the internal part of the titanium housing the outer titanium ring on the connector. Once connected, the connector sits very tight on the RCA female, and the three solid silver sextets, that make the actual contact, are pressed to the Sexttete female outer part. In addition to the Aural Symphonics Echelon, I have extensive experience with several other high-quality digital cables.

Note that these sextete been replaced by reengineered Transparent Reference digital cables, which reportedly are superior to the older version. These two highly regarded digital cables will serve as my comparison cables in this review.

I should note that adios this is by no means the most expensive digital IC out there, it is more expensive than the sextte cables referred to above, except sextete the MIT, which is a lot more expensive. The listening session featured the following:. Music From Big Pink is one of those albums that conveys a sense of adios akin sextete an experimental jam session, but is in fact a demonstration of how each musician adios an indispensable part of the whole. Though each musician takes his turn to be showcased, the band is always the star.

As such, MFBP provides great opportunities to listen to the nuances provided by each musician, and the Sextet really allowed us to enjoy those nuances. It seamlessly conveys both adios. Similarly, the signature vocals of each of the singers hung in the air like vocals do at a live performance in a midsize club setting.

Compared to the Aural Symphonics, the Adios was clearer in the lower midrange and upper bass, allowing a more accurate rendition of tones in that range. Compared to my memory of the Transparent Reference, the Sextet was more detailed and a bit more neutral throughout adios frequency range. Compared sextete my recollection of the MIT Cables MA-X, the Sextet is just as detailed and similarly tuneablebut projects a slightly more realistic you-are-there feel to the music.

Their verdict after multiple listens: the Stealth over the Aural Symphonics. I adios one or two of the guys in the group wanted to marry her. From my own sonic memory, the old Transparent Reference was not as detailed and the MA-X not as emotive.

Sonny Rollins sextete Way Out West. I learned a new word when we listened to this album. Pitches are changed in part through altering the amount of muscular contraction in the lip formation. Supertramp — Crime of the Century. This album has its own unique sound — not quite progressive rock and not sextete pop.

Whatever genre it is, the album is also a sonic masterpiece with incredible dynamics. Again, the Sextet came out on top, being both fast qdios extremely dynamic. Alan Parsons Project — I, Eextete. This album leans heavily on a wide range of keyboard and synth sounds.

The album starts with what could be called ambient sounds and morphs into a series of rhythms before becoming a synth — and guitar-driven piece of instrumental funk.

This opening can easily adios its separate instrumental lines and collapse into mush. Again, the very natural detail of the Sextet really stepped up the performance.

Perhaps the MA-X is equally good at this feat, but once we got to the vocals we again preferred the Sextet. Expensive, but heartily recommended without reservation. Thank you for the review. The Sextet is an unusual cable, with a number of features and details which are sometimes not obvious even to an experienced reviewer. We now have a V16 version of the Sextet, to be released in the next two weeks.

The V16 version is sonically more refined because of aduos newer ferromagnetic composite in the tuning collar, and the sextete itself being made of machined Titanium — versus carbon in the V14, and the difference is clearly zdios. Our V14 sextete make use of ferrite, while our V16 tuning collars are made of conductive metal flakes, and this is where the difference comes from. Stealth Audio Cables.

Nobody uses machined Titanium for connector shells. Titanium is strong, light-weight, non-magnetic, extremely corrosion resistant but expensive and difficult to work with. In my custom RCA connectors, the dielectric is Teflon and contacts are solid silver. Nobody uses anything like my machined Teflon cones adjacent to the RCA connectors to give a cable the required geometry to stabilize the impedance while the cable approaches the termination point.

We now also have our own XLR connectors Teflon dielectric, very light hollow solid silver contacts, Kevlar supports, locking ability, Titanium shells. It's too difficult and expensive. Furutech and Xhadow do offer XLRs but ours are objectively better. The cable is flexible and very user friendly but virtually unbreakable due to its Kevlar center core. I actually thought about giving a strange little demonstration at one of the shows: tow a car using the Indra or Sextet as tow line, then demonstrate that the cables will still work after such abuse.

Nobody uses Litz for digital cable returns. This creates a more "transparent" ground path and works to higher frequencies to reduce the effect of RF and EMI interference on the ground return. Nobody uses variable wrapping pitch in cable geometries to control resonances.

This is like using multiple ports in a ported loudspeaker box. The main high "Q" resonance is broken down into several smaller ones of lower Q for far more linear overall performance. Because the cables are made by hand, we can fine-tune both their electrical and mechanical damping separately details below.

The reasons, in my opinion, include the following: Connectors noticeably affect the sound quality in all cables but digital in this regard is even more critical than analog. The only way is to compare both pathways in any given system. Actual listening. Beyond a certain point of competence, digital cables indeed make smaller and smaller differences. Alas, those shrinking violets can bloom louder and bigger again as the overall resolving power of a system increases.

If you believe that high-efficiency speakers are a mandatory ingredient for high resolution dB and up , perhaps those without them needn't be too worried about the nth degree of improvement by way of digital interconnects? Be that as it may, the remaining cable differences revolve around subtle timing issues. Think camera lens focus and the difference between lock and a quarter click off. They do not affect tone color or frequency response amplitude. That's not to say poorly designed digital ICs couldn't be tone controls.

But focusing on competent digital cable designs, the final arbiter will be the amount of remaining jitter and signal scatter. How much of that is audible? Fake resolution relies on treble emphasis and transient hype.

While incisive, this type of resolution is fatiguing and thereby unnatural. Real articulation as a result of time coherence is easy. Precision now sounds sweet rather than edgy, trailing edges elongate, transients are crisp and energetic without being sharp and annoying.

Less efforting attention is required to make out what's playing on even the most microscopic of levels, i. This act of gazing -- or listening in our case -- sees and hears things as just so. It's inclusive. It's free of strain and deliberation. That's why in the end, it's hard to make out and impossible to quantify.

You see, our brain is extremely capable of filling in blanks, especially when those blanks shrink to slivers ever easier to bridge. The ultimate difference between no blank and one blank isn't final resolution at all. It's the relaxation of effort. That's bloody tough to comment upon seriously.

Rather than weigh objective items -- hard data -- we instead attempt to watch the mechanisms of perception. The listener becomes the focus. It's not about what she hears but how she hears it. Psycho stuff in short. How reliable is this type of approach in the first place? Whatever first tips off our mechanism to slow down or stop is impossible to predict.

In fact, it's something we realize only well after the fact. Only when we return to the prior state which conditioned us to work for a listen do we notice the difference. There's more blurring now. It doesn't automatically get corrected and resolved by our brain just yet. It will soon again, once we revert back to the old mode of more effort before we again stop noticing it. So this is tricky. It's very personal terrain. Accordingly , all I'm prepared to say about the Stealth Sextet is that like the Indra, it supports peak resolution while inducing a very relaxed, effortless psychological state.

You notice things without even trying, whenever your attention is spontaneously attracted to a specific detail in a song you know well.

That's it. With the Sextet and when compared to other top notch digital cables, there's simply obvious clarity. It's as though someone had stopped all the ripples of even subliminal blurring.

That's a tiny thing in the objective realm. It's far more significant in the subjective realm where the state of the listener is concerned. It's very different from the usual what's-it-sound-like list. Their verdict after multiple listens: the Stealth over the Aural Symphonics. I think one or two of the guys in the group wanted to marry her. From my own sonic memory, the old Transparent Reference was not as detailed and the MA-X not as emotive.
