2012 THE ABSOLUTE SOUND EDC
Crystal Connect Absolute Dream $15,000/1m pr.
interconnect: RCA or XLR, ($11k per extra meter); $32,000/2m pr. speaker ($11k extra per meter)
Dead-quiet even on analog sources, extremely detailed, rich in tone color, and very lifelike on
dynamics top to bottom, with superb staging and imaging and unusually high transparency to sources,
Crystal’s Absolute Dream is JV’s current reference. Simply phenomenal resolution. JV, 229
Crystal Cable Micro Interconnect/ CrystalSpeak Micro Speaker Cable$850/1m pr.
Interconnect ($700/add’l meter); $2500/2m pr. speaker ($900/ add’l meter-pair)
Clean, composed, and transparent, the jewel-like Crystal Micro cables offer an open soundstage where images
snap into focus and music is conveyed with a turbine-like smoothness. Even some softness in the bass and a bit
of forwardness in the treble don’t diminish one of the most transparent cables NG has heard. Unique splitter
rings allows easy change-out of terminations or bi-wire upgrades. NG, 164
