AudioQuest Mini-3 Reviews
Average Customer Review:
Some may scoff at the idea of paying this much for a small, short audio cable. Those people will miss out on the absolute joy of listening through this fine work of audio technical art. Yes, art. Something happens to audio going through this cable -- something that's hard to put your finger on but it's real nevertheless. Digital recordings seem to smooth out, almost into a vinyl-like presence and soundstage. Highs become clearer and cymbals in particular seem to be more synchronized with the music, as if angels descended into my sound system and made things right. Instruments and voices in the midrange just seem a little more in tune, losing the dissonance that stranded, non-directional cables so often leave on music. Audioquest has captured magic here and put it into audio cables for us serious listeners. Buy it, break it in, and experience the magic for yourself.
