For the audiophile that demands the best. No unnecessary intro needed here. There are only a few other cables that sounds better than the Oracle MA-X but then they also cost a lot more. At under $6,000, this is a bargain for a pair of Oracle MA-X 2.5m XLR cables. The impedance and articulation selector is a piece of amazing audio engineering. One fanatical previous owner. Comes with original box.
