The Crimson is Clarus Cables top tier model. They are another brand that gives the high end brands a run for their money. Built and finish is comparable to brands that sell similar cables but cost a whole lot more. The Crimson displayed an uncanny clarity for a cable that retails for $2,000. We tried them between source and preamp and preamp and power amp and they were good with either use. These are the MK.I versions and the difference between them and their current MK.II version are the XLR plugs. Cables itself are the same.
Cosmetically, the cables look very good with minor scuff marks from being used as DEMOs. We have the original box and will securely pack them for safe shipping.
