This is a pair of award winning interconnect cables from the UK. Its one level up from their starter Horizon 2 series and unlike the Horizon 2, features two pure silver solid core conductors and one silver plated solid core copper conductor instead of silver plated multi-strand found in the Horizon 2. Solid core conductors have always offered a more warmer sound than multi-strand (in our opinion) and the Tempest 2 with a hybrid mix of pure silver and silver plated copper in solid core offers a good balance of that warmth with sharper details. At its $360 MSRP, its a ridiculous value when other competing solid silver cables cost so much more. At under $200 now, this is a crazy bargain for the audiophile who wants to add some “sparkle” in a warm-like setting.
Cosmetically, the cables look really good with just the usual minor scuff marks from use. Previous owner used it for about 3 months and then upgraded to the Halo 2. We have the original packaging and will have it securely packed for safe shipping.
