Audio Art Cable Statement e SC Cryo Speaker Cable

Final Thoughts

Contents

The Audio Art Cable Statement e SC Cryo speaker cable has truth baked in. And is then sprinkled with delicious bits of seduction. There isn’t a single genre of music it doesn’t sound great with this cable. Although it doesn’t stretch and pull the music out excessively – it bundles the music naturally. This doesn’t just apply to vocals or instruments but for ambient sounds like birds chirping, water running, or even police sirens.

After endless hours of listening to this cable, I believe the AAC Statement will get you closer to the artist’s intent than most. It doesn’t excel at being contoured or ultra-transparent – but when you let the music just play out…you never feel like you’re missing anything. Consequently, instead of having the “special effects”…I’m willing to make the tradeoff for a fuller, more dynamic, and golden presentation. The AAC Statement isn’t “dark”, or “bright”, but just enjoyable to listen to. It’s special because you forget about the gear – and instead, are immediately enveloped into the music.

Also, from my experience in HiFi, it’s getting more difficult to add warmth to a system. Most of these companies are about an upward ramp towards the top-end. This seems to help in improving the “quietness” and detail – but takes away the soul. The AAC Statement is more grounded and extracts the best parts. It doesn’t sound awkward or contrived – but has a distinct yet familiar feel to what I would hear from live music.

The Audio Art Cable Statement is worthy of an audition. Especially if you’re looking to add a bit more warmth, texture, or low-end to your system. It’s also very affordable when considering other high-end options. As with any great speaker cable company, you have a 100% satisfaction guarantee with a 30-day trial. I look forward to including this cable for future reviews.

Mr. Audio Bacon himself. An open-minded electrical engineer and software developer by trade. I have an obsession with the enjoyment of all things media - specifically in the realm of music and film. So much heart and soul (and money) go into the creation of this artistry. My aim is to find out which products get me closer to what the musicians and directors intended.

  • I love your little dig at Audioholics. Don't forget that they use pretty hefty and expensive Kimber Kables themselves. Frankly, in this day and age, I can't comprehend why people don't just try things out for themselves and come to a conclusion, rather than lazily spewing decades old "wisdom".

    • Yeah, I've concluded it's just a matter of personality. Some people have a more fixed mindset (them), while others have a growth mindset (us).

  • Jay, I'm using Neotech 8-guage pure UPOCC speaker cable. I'm pretty satisfied -- it seems to be good in terms of warmth, weight, and detail as well. (I forget the model number -- maybe 3001 -- whichever one is their top copper speaker cable.) But I'm always curious about a comparison. Any chance you could get some of the Neotech and compare it with Audio Art? And also, how much difference do you think 8-guage would make relative to 11 or 12-guage? Thanks, Mad Bill

    • I have had AA Cable in my system for about 8 years. I began with their reference AC cord which I had cryo’d on my own since they were not providing that service then. I still use it on my turntable motor controller. It’s a great match providing punch and dynamics. I recently tried their reference IC from my TT preamp to my Line stage preamp. Of course their current generation has all the bells and whistles with cryogenic treatment, very pure copper, and excellent connectors. I still have a pair of their original ICs which I never used with regularity because they weren’t as good as the ICs I used at the time. I decided to try their latest ICs and low and behold they beat some fairly costly ICs I use now. I bought that pair. They aren’t way way better than what they are replacing but they are special in terms of warmth, wider sound stage, and quiet. I bought the pair. Now I am waiting for their speaker cables. I’ll report back after I assess those.
