listening to the beta pair, further thoughts. The tonal quality of the Indra
is very good, the "black" background is
exceptional. The Nordost Valhalla seems to better in the focus and
specificity of the image. I attribute this to the Cardas
RCA's, which MUST go away. The solo instruments/voices
sometimes seem to be in the middle of the orchestra rather than in
front. The instruments seem to "blend" together
rather than be separated by space.
are observations by using the Indra as a phono cable on my
Rockport turntable/Lyra Titan Cartridge combination. When
using the Indra on my DAC it gives the system a "tube
continued using the Beta Indra Cable while the "real"
Indra was breaking-in. When I put the Indra in the system,
all the concerns I had about the Beta Cable went away. It is
absolutely WONDERFUL. I have been "loaning out"
the Beta Indra. I
definitely did no want to remove the "real" Indra from my reference
system. The potential customers that have tried the Beta
Cable have had only the highest praise for the cable (except for
the price). Unfortunately, $5750 for a 1 meter pair is a little
too steep for many customers... Best
wishes and good listening. Jim
