If we use Nordost as a comparison brand to the Viking Acoustics interconnect cables you see here, we would place this as equal if not better than the Tyr and may even sit in-between the Tyr and the Valhalla. That is how good they are. Music was distinctly clear and clean with a smoothness that separates it from other sub-$4,000 cables. The Tyr sounded a bit heavier whereas the soundstage via the Viking Acoustics was a tad lighter and seems to “float above the ground”. In the right setup and components, it can rival those other two models from Nordost easily. And with an MSRP that is substantially lower, should be in your consideration list for high end cables.
Cosmetically, the cables look great. Some minor wear from use but nothing major. Cables will be securely packed for safe shipping.
