This is a very neutral sounding power cord – in many ways. It prides itself in being neutral in almost every technical aspect. It doesn’t favor the bass, midrange, or treble. It just focuses on relaying musical information.
Tonally and texturally, it’s a very “dreamy” and analog sounding cable. Although it’s more liquid than gritty, it does present resolution in a zero-grain, palpable way. As a result, the sound is made more tangible and “majestic.”
The Grand Illusion does have something extra. The sound is almost porcelain-like. It doesn’t reach far into the room but has a heavier hand in the reflections. Making them more apparent and, in ways, more immersive. Although it doesn’t sparkle or overextend its dynamics. It stays grounded, coherent, and “proper.” In other words, polished and clean.
|Who should buy this cable?|
|If you prefer a more neutral and elegant sound. This cable has a grey, porcelain-like color. In addition, it’s full-bodied, detailed, and very articulate.|
|It’s not a very warm or organic sounding cable. It’s more mellow than exciting and doesn’t emphasize any particular region. This could be a good thing depending on what you’re looking for.|
|Silky, glamoured, liquid, clean, calm.|
