Have you used any other cable than the Transparent you can compare to? I haven't personally had any experience with Transparent... I’ve also tried Kimber Hero and Cardas Golden Cross; which did not replace the transparent cables and ultimately preferred Oyaide. Although neither Cardas nor Kimber wa...

I use Oyaide Tsunami for interconnects and speaker cables. Purchased used and from Planet of Sound in Ottawa. They lend out cables if you ask nicely. :) They replaced a complete Transparent Music Wave Super loom. I found the 'top end' much nicer with the Oyaide, bass a little less predominant. Bench...

I used a YBA2 preamp for many years with the matching amp and then borrowed an audible illusions M3a and bought one two days later.
Was an incredible combo and a huge improvement to my ears. YMMV
feel free to PM me if you want any other details.

I spoke with Art when I ordered them and he confirmed that they were matched. As for microphonics, I believe that as I ordered the "AA ultra low noise" they would have been examined for microphonics. To be clear, I did not confirm or ask questions regarding microphonics, only matching. BTW...

With all due respect, and I have lot for you OBI, I have a pair of tribe ones and a single Tribe 2 and there is no channel that would allow the speaker cable to exit under the speaker when the speaker is flush with the wall. I have often thought this to be a small design flaw… The channel I see in t...

You can use flat speaker and it will work, I've seen it. You should be mindful that it doesn't skew the speaker a bit in relation to the wall.
