23 Speaker Cable
the Review in 6moons
by Jeff Day, April 2006
Auditorium 23 LS speaker cables transformed my system
from great-sounding HiFi to great music in a way that
really caught me by surprise - it was a transformative
change I had not expected and have rarely encountered.
the review on Dagogo.com, Jack Roberts, June 2007
Auditorium wires are more musical. Yes, there are cables
that are more spectacular, but in the end I think you
will find the Auditorium 23 cables are more correct
tonally and musically then these spectacular-sounding

Coleman on the A23 Speaker Cables
Just a word, actually two, about these speaker cables:
buy them. Whatever else you purchase for your system
this year, do yourself a favor and purchase these speaker
cables. They are the most balanced, natural yet revealing
speaker cables I have ever owned or heard. They are
at home in every system I have ever heard them in -
regardless of price. And by high-end standards, they
are not just a bargain but a steal.

Along with the Leben, Jonathan Halpern also sent a 2.5m
set of Auditorium 23 loudspeaker cable that retails
for $xxx. Rarely do reviewers -- let alone audiophiles
-- agree on anything. However, in this instance I am
in total agreement with my colleagues. The Auditorium
23 is easily the finest speaker cable I have had in
my system yet. Like the CS-300X, no one area stands
out as this green cotton-clad cable excels at walking
that ever-tricky tightrope between resolution and musicality.
The Auditorium 23 is a touch expensive to these cost-conscious
ears yet I believe they are worth consideration and
have clicked with every amp/speaker combo I've tried
to date (and this from a guy who frowns upon mixing
and matching different brands of cables).
Michael Lavorgna on the A23 Speaker Cables
I've come to realize is the Auditorium 23s are largely
responsible for that uncanny representation of the place
in the recording. Spatial cues between performers are
so palpable that you can actually listen in to the performance.
The Auditoriums also provide more bass heft than the
PHY speaker cables while holding onto the PHYs' detail
and differentiation, something the Nirvanas did not
do... As a system, the PHYs deliver all the details
and the A23s supply the bloom.
