Description

•   New carefully braided 30 core pure silver mains cable.
•   10 cores of 5N solid silver wire AWG28 are used for Active line and 10 ones for Neutral in order to transfer AC voltage.
•   10 cores of silver plated copper 0.3mm diameter are used for Earth line.
•   Terminated with Carbon rhodium plated EU plugs (US on request).
•   Teflon insulation insures safety up to 300 AC continuous voltage.
•   Will fit to almost any amplifier, CD player, DAC or other component that does not consumes more than 1kW of power.
•   Unshielded design brings more air & transparency to the soundstage.
•   Woven Teflon Litz construction is ideal to deliver RFI and EMI rejection and provides low capacitance.
•   5N silver transmits electrical signals faster and with less distortion than ordinary OFC.
•   High grade Teflon insulation gives a predominant air dielectric and is regarded as the best insulator for bare cable.
•   ‘Skin effect’ is noticeably reduced via separated 30 cores.

    During the last month I had the chance of trying the Lavricables Grand power cable in my system.

    I started the testing expecting some relatively easy A/B sessions in order to get the idea of where the cable fits in between the characteristics of the other cables I selected for my gear, but it quickly turned out that the evaluation was going to take longer than expected.

    Basically, I wasn’t able to identify meaningful differences with quick A/B switching from the start, so I decided to move to longer listening sessions (days), which allowed me to grasp the pairing of the Grand with the various pieces of my setup in a more consistent way, thus making subsequent comparisons easier.

    In my cable loom, which I refined after a few iterations, I now use an old Shunyata Alpha HC with my DAC (Chord DAVE), Audioquest NRG-1000 for the amp, Hurricane HC for power conditioner, and Hurricane Source for my music server.

    I started with the amplifier. The first impression I had it was of a more controlled, quick and tight low end, with no loss of extension. A cleaner sound with fast rise and shorter decay of notes, but still with a very satisfying roundness. Tonality was overall unchanged, where the overall snappiness / bounciness of the amp response the most peculiar modification. Rhythmic drive and PrAT were consequently improved as it was the liveliness of the presentation.

    Transparency is another area where I found a benefit, which, together with the improved articulation of the notes, provided a nice sense of ease of reading into the score.

    Midrange bloom and weight were comparatively a bit reduced. Overall effect on my amp was similar to what I get (although to a lesser degree) when I roll my Mullard CV491 NOS tube to my Fivre: a more dynamic and sculpted sound with more agility and less lushness.

    I would say that the Lavricables Grand is a very good match for my Riviera AIC-10 amplifier.

    When I moved to my Music Server, the differences were somewhat easier to identify. In this case the Grand precision provided to the server an almost mechanical character, which I did not particularly enjoyed. Also, some dryness creeped in, sucking out a bit too much of resonance tail and complexity, thus making for example piano listening a less relaxing and enveloping experience.

    On the other hand, the additional background blackness made electronic music sound spectacular, thanks to an almost holographic display of very distinct sound sources popping out of nowhere.

    Finally, I tried the Grand on my DAVE and I found these two go very well together, meaning that they do very well similar things. The DAVE seemed even more three-dimensional sounding and resolving, providing an almost tactile feeling to sound images. Timing was especially compelling, toe tapping assured. For example, momentum produced by double bass sections in a jazz band, or drums kicks, or brass blasting out were exciting and involving.

    Notes were lighter, and clarity improved, reminding of a sunny winter day where everything seems easy to detect and even things far away seem at an arm’s length.

    Overall, I really enjoyed my time with the Grand, it is extremely well built and pleasing to the eye without being flashy or intrusive, and sonically like a stream of pristine water springing from a high mountain. It is energetic, pure, transparent and refreshing, all virtues that can be exploited with synergy and personal taste in mind, as always with audio gear.
