Not too long ago, the Apex was the top dog under the Tesla range of cables before it was superceded by the Galileo series. With its active shielding, silver mixed alloy conductors that were made with proprietary technology and processes, the Tesla Apex cable was quite remarkable in its ability to calm down and rough edges in the music reproduction and enhanced the resolution and dimensionality of the soundstage. Recommended for the reference level system, you could try them out with a top level mid-range system too (now that it is under $1,200) and reap some of its positive attributes. The pair you see here is currently used in conjunction with the Galileo MPC.
Cosmetically, the cable is in nice shape. Minor scuff marks from use but nothing major. We don’t have the original box but will securely pack it for safe shipping.
