This is the latest version of the Creation Ultimate Series (denoted by the “S”). The Creation Ultimate S is somewhat like the “junior” reference series (they are actually third from the top) from Hemingway. At $14,000 MSRP, they are “more affordable” when compared to their competitors in the category of reference level cables. The cables have proprietary conductors in them and can be a bit “wiry” (may have been their proprietary conductors…) to lay them out so extra patience is needed. But once you have them settled in, they will astound you. There is this startling clean display. There is no edgy vagueness around the soundstage and imaging where some lesser cables tend to be weak in. The cables were more like an extra smooth conduit for the signal travel between the amp and speakers. It does demand top a top notch amp/speaker pairing for maximum result though.
Cable looks good with just the usual scuff marks around the spades from use. Blue protective wrap over the tuning boxes was never removed and rightfully so because the cables have been tuned at the factory for optimum performance so try not touch it. One owner since new. We have the original wooden box and will double box it for safe shipping.
