Signal conductors are made from high purity silver with adding mixture of rare metals to achieve best performance to conduct signal from your player in to your earphones. SIGNAL is four braided cable in black plastic sleeve. Cable is very soft, flexible with no any inclination to tangle at all. Both termination are custom made under BA brand and they are made perfectly without any visible flows. Generally is quality of processing one of highest I ever seen. Another good news is that cable not suffer from noise, collected by its sleeve. BA are not using memory wire, but ear guide is pre-shaped and is stiffened by another plastic transparent sleeve. In fact, this is way more comfortable and fit is very safe. Y split is simple, it is only small cylinder with brand logo

Signal is surely a high quality cable which does provide decent sound improvement. It has very open sound, with wide sound stage and very decent resolution. Signal adds to all of that impact on low end and sparkle on top end, overall sound is richer and vivid compare to many stock cables. Signal fulfilled my expectation and give to my CA Ei.3 more liveliness and airiness and made the bass more cultivated and precise.

Audeze LCD i4 with Billow

Here's a Headfi link of the review: https://www.head-fi.org/threads/audeze-lcd-i4-totl-in-ear-monitor-discussion.850292/page-73

Here's a clip from that review:
By the pictures, you’ll see that the Billow + i4 combo is really pleasing to the eye (to me at least). It actually feels more appropriate than the stock cable color wise. And if gold color is your thing, I guess with the Sony 1Z or the future DX200 gold plated edition, you’ve got some serious opportunity to look like the real pimp! Haha. :D
Anyway, for those who wonder how does this pairing sounds, well... in one word I’d say MAJESTIC!
Just can’t believe portable gears could sound so great. To me that is the best truely portable pairing that I tried so far. It ticks all the boxes for me. The only little down side would be the isolation of the i4 in some situations, but most of the time I find it to a pro much more often than a con. That’s a pro while walking in the street, riding bicycle, at work,... that’s a con while in the subway, bus or plane, but most universal iems are only barely improving on that matter anyways, and I’m not necessarily searching for the ultimate listening experience in those circumstances...

特長を際立たせるケーブル
Gravatar

audiotechnicaのCKR100用に購入しました
題名にもある通りイヤホンの特長を大きく変えることなく際立たせる為多くのイヤホンに合うと思います
高域は伸びボーカルはより近くに低域はより深くといった感じです
音場は初めは狭いのですがエージングにより(特に高域が)かなり広くなります
音の変化が強調されるのでイコライザーによる音質調整もより楽しめると思います

イヤホン本体の価格以上のケーブルでしたが値段に見合う良い買い物でした

5 из 5!

Сетап: SONY NW-WM1Z -> Vermilion (4.4,2.5) -> 64 Audio Tia Fourte
Великолепный кабель! Качественный, легкий. Завернут в двойную оплетку, никогда не разойдётся на 2 кабеля.
Играет заметно лучше стока от Tia ( не без помощи 4.4) ).
Рекомендую ✌️

Great sounding cable
Gravatar

First time purchasing a customized cable for my earphones. Really appreciate how Stephen answered my queries, and the cable really did make a difference in the sound. The build is also great, and it feels comfortable on my ears.

So glad that I made the right purchase. With the lightning cable plug, I can ditch away the lousy connector that came with my iPhone. Just hoping that Apple doesn't change the lightning port to something else again 😅

A Vermillion Miracle!
Gravatar

I have been an audiophile for some years now. After years of upgrades I finally settled with a pair of Sonus Faber Guarneri Evolution. The soulful voice of current breed of SF speakers has an uncanny ability in transporting me right to the middle row of a performing concert.

I have started headphones recently with Audeze LCD-3 and a modified Fostex TH900 with Wywires Platinum Series. Just recently I purchased my first universal IEM and I picked UM Miracle purely for work travels. My past experience has proved cables makes a great deal of difference in the chain of audio fidelity. So without any hesitation I started searching for a complementary cable.

The search got me to Beat Audio. There wasn't much I can find about Beat Audio particularly on Vermillion in the internet. Neither did I have any chance auditioning one but I took a bet. I was searching a cable to add a little warmth, body and soul into Miracle yet retaining a wide soundstage.

I collected the Vermillion cable this morning and the packaging was a little disappointing but did the job. Once the plastic wraps are out of the way the box unique design and cables looks amazing. I installed it onto the Miracle and boy I was floored. The mid bass is fuller, mids sounds so much better, the imaging and separation is a notch up, a tad wider soundstage with much better micro dynamics, the highs are much more refined with no fatigue and the overall balance and tones is almost tube like sensation. It plays well across all genre of music and quite honestly i didn't expect this cable will match so well - it's exactly what I wanted, a miracle indeed.

I wholeheartedly recommend this upgrade...I have no graph or measurements but I have been around long enough to trust only my ears. Go have a listen if you ever have a chance to - it's worth a try.

Thanks and enjoy your tunes~

頂点をも超えた音

LaylaCustom用として、JH4Pin(8wire)を注文しました。
まず、音出しから音の濃密さを感じることが出来ます。
PrimaDonna以上です。
特に低域の再現性が抜群で、ロックやメタルを聴いていると違いが感じやすいですね。
Laylaとの相性は抜群で、すべての音が細かく聴こえます。
高額ですが、BeatAudioが誇る、孤高のフラグシップたる所以が感じられます。
言葉で表現するのは非常に難しいですが、これ1本でIEMの持ってる力を存分に引き出してくれる
ので、すべてのリケーブルを過去にする、そんなケーブルです。

リケーブル頂点の一つ
Gravatar

PrimadonnaはK10U用とLayla2用の2つを使ってます。
Primadonna以外はCrystal Cable NextとSamuraiを使ってますので評価はこれらに対してと受け取って頂ければ幸いです。
個人的にこのケーブルで一番のお気に入りなところはどの音域もとってもクリアでいながら感性を揺さぶるような音場と響きをもたらしてくれるところです。
ただのクリアさ、正確さをもとめるなら上に挙げていた他のケーブルの方が分があります。けど聞いていて気持ちいい音を鳴らしてくれるのはPrimadonnaの方です。
特にK10Uは他のケーブルで聞くと基本的に正確に聞こえてた音がもっと正確に聞こえて来るけど「何か足りないな」と思うんですがPrimadonnaの方は元々感じ得なかった音場と響きによって「ああ, これいいな」という気持ちになります。
間違いなくリケーブルの頂点の一つです。
ただ響きと音圧とかが十分なイヤホンにはむしろ不明瞭になる時もありますので「正確な音を鳴らしてくれるけど、何か足りない」と思うイヤホンにベストマッチングするケーブルなんじゃないかなと思います。

Silver Sonic MKV - Great Product
Gravatar

I bought the Silver Sonic MKV cable to go with my Sennheiser IE80’s and Sony ZX2. I ordered this cable with a right-angle TRRS plug.

The Silver Sonic MKV cable is simply awesome. The quality of workmanship exceeded my expectations and the materials are of high quality.

I just couldn't be happier with the performance, fit and finish. Recommended.

2本目のPrimaです。
JH用で、PrimaDonna(8wire)を注文しまして、届きました。

LaylaCustom用で買いましたが、まだ試せてませんが、手持ちのRoxanneⅡで
試したところ、それまで使っていたVermilionよりも高域の伸びが圧巻で、更に低域
の量感も損なわず、さすがの一言です。
解像度は随一だと思います。
とにかく音に圧倒されます。
これがLaylaCustomとだとどんな音になるのか楽しみです。
リケーブルの一つの終着点だと思います。

A must have cable for high end in ear monitor.

Firstly, this is my first time to order the cable from Beat Audio.

The build quality of the cable is perfect. It’s much better than other cable makers in the market.

This cable sound is very warm. It is very good for listening for female singer. It increases the singer emotion.

This cable can improve the sound stage. It increases the spacious feeling.

It does extend high and low tone.

It gives more details to me.

Overall I am very satisfied with this cable, and I am going to order a Prima Donna.

AK120II + Fitear MH335DW + Beat Audio Vermilion

My Digital Audio Devices:
My Digital Audio Player is AK120II.
The cable is Vermilion (balanced 2.5mm).
My earphone is Fitear MH335DW (normal).

Firstly,noise is an important matter for a portable digital audio player when you are walking.
I used the original cable at first. I didn't like it because the noise annoys me when I were walking. But there has been no noise since I started to use Vermilion as my cable.

The sound quality is good. So, I can hear the sound clearly.
Tone color is very nice when I listen to any kind of music. I am not tired if I listen to music for a long time.
To sum up, I think vermilion is a cable worth buying.

I'm Japanese. So, I'm sorry for my poor English.

A great buy if you like sound of copper cables, and it's ultra durable.

I have been using Thor with my Merlin for 8 months now, and never regretted. My portable setup is IPC+CLAS+ALO MK2, which has a pretty dry, sharp and not-so-warm sound signature, but I am more into thick/warm tone. So, I replaced the stock cable with this copper Thor. It made a huge difference.

The first thing I noticed is that vocals are pulled forward towards me. This is definitely what I wanted since vocals are a bit too far in my original setup, making me feel like I want to catch something but couldn't. Now, my portable rig has a much better staging and balance between vocal and bass (have to say Merlin still has the best bass among all IEMs I've auditioned).

The Thor cable doesn't make Merlin sound smoother as silver cables usually do (of course because it's not silver), but it does increase the thickness as I expected. Originally, in some songs, the treble was so sharp that it almost ruined the whole listening experience, but I can live with them now with the added thickness from Thor.

The build quality is AMAZING. I ordered with customized sleeves (black) and buttons (silver), and they look great with the rest of my setup. It has been 8 months of regular use, 2 hours daily, and I have not noticed any damage to the finish.

To sum up, I am very happy about this cable, and if you like sound of a typical copper cable or want to make some changes to your current setup like I did, you won't go wrong with Thor. It's not really a cheap cable but definitely worth every penny.

Awesome Cable, excellent after sales

This is an awesome cable, which honors its name, and really paired good with my Unique Melody Mentor CIEM and HiFiMan HM901.
Sadly, after a year of carrying around my HM901 in my pocket, the Supernova cable with a straight TRRS jack took some serious beating and finally ended up with a cable breakage. This automatically also resulted in the end of me enjoying my UM Mentors.

Since I’m not much of a technician in the field of soldering, I contacted Stephen and explained him my problem. He advised me to me to send the cable back to Beat Audio, and so I did. Within two weeks I received my only one inch shorter, but looks brand new Supernova cable free of charge returned to me, but this time with a right angle TRRS plug of which I’m sure it's will much more suitable being carried around in a pocket and will let me enjoy my UM Mentor's for many years to come.

I can only say Beat Audio did an excellent job for which I'm very thankful. I'm also very thankful for Stephen's excellent after sales service. I would recommend Unique Melody and Beat Audio to everybody who seriously wants to enjoy music.

Excellent all around

I bought this cable with a 3.5 balanced termination to run with my Pono player and 1964 Ears V6 Stage. The build quality is outstanding and the sound quality is excellent. Customer service is first rate!!

Best build quality on the market with astonishing sound
%e5%ae%9e%e9%bb%91%e8%89%b2logo%e4%b8%8d%e5%b8%a6%e6%b1%89%e5%ad%97   copy

With many different companies out there making their version of IEM cables it’s tough to know which to go with. I’m using the Unique Melody Merlin’s and I have tried out several well-known cables and have yet to find one that even compares to what you will get with your Beat Audio cable.

Sound:
Sound is different from person to person in what they like but I will say that the most important aspects that someone is looking for its clarity and crispness. The Signal is very well balanced compared to many other cables I’ve ran across or tested. I guarantee if you’re in the market for a good sounding cable the Signal won’t disappoint you. The soft feel of the cable (sleeveless version) helps minimize cable noise when moving around. I run and workout with mine and have no issue.

Aesthetics:
Although this won’t have any effect on how the cable functions, I find this to be a major factor for me when deciding what cable to get. As I have mentioned I have used other well-known companies and the way their cables are built look very cheap and homemade. Beat Audio makes a very stylish looking cable no matter what color that will make your IEMs stand out giving them a very elegant look. The connectors used make the cable look very nice and clean. The metal caps give it just that extra edge that I’m always looking for in a product.

Build Quality:
There’s only so much I can say without you just trying these cables out for yourself, but this is by far the best built cable I’ve seen available to this day. If you are to run into any trouble Stephen has given me some of the best customer servers I have ever run across. I’ve worked with him for the past few years now and at this point I won’t be trying out other cables from anyone else. I had order one (Very popular company which I won’t name) for my UM Merlin’s and they sent me a cable where the sockets wouldn’t seat deep enough in my IEM sockets. After sending it back for them to fix they had taken a knife to the socket plug stripping away some of the plastic so it would wedge down into the IEM. Not only did it look hideous but it was damaging my IEM sockets. This was their fix to keep my IEMs from falling off the cable. Not sure how others use their IEMs but I do pull them out and hang them from my ears when I’m talking cause as you know you won’t hear anyone with them in. I need the socket to hold the IEM so it won’t fall and break. Beats Audio cable has always plugged right in and stayed in nice and snug. Maybe not a big deal to many but it just shows a bit more of the quality and care some people put into a cable that cost you a few bills.

Thanks again Stephen for all the great service!

Excellent high-end cable, with great looks
%e5%ae%9e%e9%bb%91%e8%89%b2logo%e4%b8%8d%e5%b8%a6%e6%b1%89%e5%ad%97   copy

* The following review is for the version of the Signal cable that has an outer sleeve on top of the main cable braid, same as the Japanese release version. Cable ergonomics (especially regarding softness and flexibility) will be different compared to the official non-sleeved version of Signal. I chose the sleeved version of Signal due to ease of cleaning, and partly for added durability.

Sound:
I will not go into detail regarding the "sound" of the cable nor the effect (if any) of the cable material (silver plus rare metal alloy). The cable sounds quite clear, and is free of any strange colorations in the sound. It compares well with other high-end cables from other manufacturers. The sleeved version of Signal suffers from only minor touch noise.

Aesthetics:
Unlike previous Beat Audio cables, the Signal can be configured to come in a variety of colors, including orange, green, purple. It is also available in black, for those who want a less flashy-looking cable. Also, it can be further configured with and without the outer sleeve to prioritize either looks/ergonomics or durability. I have the black version of the Signal and it is a sweet looking cable, perfectly matching the smoke-gray shells of my CIEMS. The cable is not completely in one color however, the IEM connector barrels and Y-splitter portion are slightly different shades of gunmetal, and provide a nice color accent. Considering all aspects of the cable, the Signal is currently the best-looking of my third-party cables.

Ergonomics:
The Signal does quite well here, having a manageable thickness and with excellent flexibility (for the non-sleeved version). The part of the cable below the Y-splitter is quad-braided like the Vermillion, allowing greater flexibility compared to earlier Beat Audio models. The Signal is also much thinner than the Supernova, which was a bit stiff and hard to handle. The sleeved version of Signal is a bit stiffer, and while this helps prevent tangling, it also gives the cable a sometimes unwanted tendency to straighten itself when even just slightly curled. The non-sleeved version of Signal does not have this issue. The pre-bent "memory-wire" area of the cable near the IEM connectors is the same as other Beat Audio models, and may take a week or two to conform to a comfortable shape. The plug connector is nice and compact, and supports use of cases with portable DAPs.

Build Quality:
Excellent all-around, with good strain reliefs. However, the quality of the heat-shrink slider was a bit of a disappointment, using the same material as the Y-splitter would have improved both slider looks and durability.

Excellent service, best build in the market.

I have tried most cable companies and will not name them all. I feel once you use good material, cables do not make much of a difference sound wise. So what is important is build quality, aesthetics, and ergonomics. And in these respects, Best Audio cables are the best bar none. No one comes close, and all other cables appear to be DIY-like in comparison. The signal cable seems completely transparent sound wise, is solid and flexible and has absolutely gorgeous finish. I will be getting most or all my cables here from now on.

PS: I have the version with a sheath in black.

First review of 'Signal'? Top notch!

This cable is absolutely worth its price! The plug is of the size that seats nicely into my iphone case. The cable, while being the softest and lightest of all that I've tried, is definitely nothing wimpy. The sockets feel substantial, true quality of pure handmade cable!

ロクサーヌとレイラで使用しています。
素晴らしいパフォーマンスです。
太い銀線なのでブーミーな低域を予想していましたが見事にコントロールされています。
可変抵抗は音の旨み成分をもアッテネートしてしまうと感じていますので
両機とも低音最大の状態で使用していますが、しっかりグリップしており問題ありません。
こうなると可変抵抗なしのプリマドンナを・・・Stephen作って!と。
唯一改善していただきたいのは私の環境では3.5mmプラグに相性があることです。
現在、2.5mm Balancedプラグに交換していますが、品質のさらなる改善を望みたいです。

【Earphone】Heir Audio iem 8.0
【Portable Music Player】Fiio x5
【Portable Amp】Fiio E11K Opeamp Modified
【Music to listen to】Pop, Rock, Jazz and so on

【総合評価】
このケーブルを一言で言うなれば、凄いの一言です。
私が所持しているearphone、portable music playerとampはどれもそこそこ良いものを使用してたつもりでしたがまだ奥にこんな音が隠れていたのか!?と驚くばかりです。

【ケーブル】
次特に驚かされるのはケーブルの太さとしなやかさです。このケーブルそこそこ太いんですが、私が持っているheir audioについてくるケースになんとすっぽり入ってしまうんです。なので通勤の時はケースから出し入れして使ってます。また、iem 8.0にデフォルトでついてくるケーブルよりも取り回しが良いのでケーブルをケースから出した時に絡まりにくく直ぐに装着できます。

【低音域】
低音域はデフォルトのケーブルよりやや押さえ気味になり、よりフラットになった印象を受けました。ただ低音不足かと言うとそうではなく、低音のぬけが良くなった感じです。

【中音域】
男性女性関係無くボーカルがもっとくっきり聞き取りやすくなり解像度が上がった印象です。

【高音域】
女性ボーカルの高音域の伸びが凄いです。もともと上記記載のearphoneは高音域をならすのがうまいのですがさらい高音が煌びやかになり綺麗になった感じです。Mariah Careyをきくと高音の伸びよくなりキラキラした感じになりました。

【各音域総合評価】
全音域解像度が上がり、煌びやかになりよりフラットになった感じです。

以上!!
Thank you for your great customer service.

CIEMスパイラルに終止符をうてるケーブル
%e5%ae%9e%e9%bb%91%e8%89%b2logo%e4%b8%8d%e5%b8%a6%e6%b1%89%e5%ad%97   copy

私は日頃UMのMentorを使っていて、今回このMentor用にPrima Donnaを購入した。

Mentorは高域・中域・低域そのどれもが非常に高い次元にあり、
そのバランスは非常に絶妙なさじ加減が加えられていてどのような音楽にも相性の良い懐の深いCIEMである。
また、よく言われるようにボーカルについては最高のパフォーマンスをみせてくれる。

そんなMentorであるが、自分としてはもう少し高域の解像度を上げたいと思っていた。勿論今のバランスを崩すこと無く。

今回Prima Donnaを試聴することが出来、その性能が素晴らしかったので購入を決めた

MentorにPrima Donnaを付けてプレイヤーを起動させる。最初の音を聞くなり「なんじゃこりゃ!?」と笑ってしまった。音が違いすぎる。オリジナルのケーブルとは次元の異なる音だった。あまりに次元が違いすぎてもう笑うしか無かったのである。(注:ケーブル本体の違い+バランス出力の違いもあり)

しかしその後、時間も経ったので冷静にレビューを試よう。
1:取扱い
ケーブルは非常に柔らかく取り回しには苦労しない。タッチノイズについても気になることは無い。しかし丸めて保存を繰り返すことでカールしてクセ毛のようになる傾向があり、それを防ぐため保存には気をつけた方が良いだろう。

2:音質

【音場】
非常に豊かな音場感を得ることが出来き、広大なステージが現れる。
とは言え単に音が拡散する事で音場感が上るのでは無くて、しっかりと音の芯を残しているので、音に存在感がしっかりと感じられそれは音が消えるまで安定して続く。

【解像度】
当初の目的だった解像度も全域にわたり高いレベルで向上する。
言い古されてはいるけれど、ベールを剥がしたように感じられる。
凄いのがそのベールが1枚どころか数枚剥がれたような劇的効果という点だ。

特に高域については解像度が上がると共に非常に滑らかで柔らかくなるため、聞いていてあまりの気持ちよさに魂をもって行かれそうになる。この時点で完全に当初の目的は期待値以上に得ることが出来た。

低域については若干評価が分かれるだろう。
解像度が上がり、引き締まった低音が出るようになり音の室は確実に向上している。
反面、音が締まるため厚みが失われる。Mentorでは音のしまり加減のバランスが素晴らしく、それにより心地よい音の厚みがあるのだが、それが若干スポイルされるように感じた。
低域がかなり緩み傾向なCIEMを使っている場合、タイトな低音を望んでいる方にはうまくハマルであろう。

3:総括すると

このケーブルは全ての音域において素晴らしい解像度を提供し、同じ金額をアンプやプレーヤーにつぎ込んでもここまでの変化にはならないと感じた。
その意味でリケーブルに対する意識を変えたのがこのPrima Donnaである。

それだけ素晴らしい音質向上をしておきながら、理性的に音を分析させるのでは無く、音楽を楽しみ陶酔できる。
実際、曲を聴き始めると音楽の世界に入り込んでしまい、気がつくと凄い時間が経っている、、、ある意味危険なケーブルでもある(笑)

より良い音を求めて新しいCIEMを追い求める、いわゆる「CIEMスパイラル」に終止符を打てるのがこのPrima Donnaだと思っている。

Beat Audio Prima Donna! Well done!

The Prima Donna cable is a dream to use from an ergonomic standpoint and has great build quality to match.

Sonically, it typically pulls the presentation a bit forward, adds brightness, and increases instrument separation for a cleaner, clearer, and more precise sound.

In addition, deep bass becomes more prominent and the entire bass spectrum gets tightened up while the treble is smoothed, yet with more detail.

Performance depends on the pairing, but beat audio Prima Donna has done an excellent job and pairs well with many CIEMs.

まず、音質以前にこのケーブルを大きく評価すべきポイントの一つは取り回しの良さ。
非常にやわらかく、線材がやや太くなった標準ケーブルレベルと言っても過言ではない。
OsloⅡと比べても取り回しの良さは圧倒的に上で、断線の危険は段違いに小さいものになっている。
むしろ、OsloⅡではあまり心配する必要がなかった、ケーブルの絡みが時々起こるくらいである。
この点は、ポータブル用途としてはOsloⅡから非常に進化したポイントと感じられる。
なお、クリアケーブルは時間とともに色が変化していくことが危惧される。この問題については対策済みのようであるが、全く変化がないのか、長持ちすると言うだけなのかはよくわからない。

音質は凄いの一言。
音の変化は、エージングせずとも一聴して明らかにわかるもので、聞いてすぐに驚かされた。
上下のレンジが非常に広くなり、上から下まで非常に伸びる。
低域は非常に締まり、かつ、量感を失わない。高域はどこまでも伸びる。
一つ一つの音を分析的に聞かせるような感じでなく、音がキツくならないOsloⅡと同様。
低域が量感を失わないため、ヴォーカルも非常に良く聞こえるうえ、ヴォーカルにはやや艶のようなものも乗る。
高域は低域に負けず埋もれることはないが、刺さることもない絶妙なところでチューニングされている。
全体のバランスは、使用し始めは低域よりであるが、エージングを進めていけばやや中域よりになる。
また、エージングとともに、レンジの拡大と低域の解像度が向上していく。
ケーブルを合わせるIEMにもよるが、ケーブルそのものは、高解像度・ワイドレンジで、ニュートラルからややドンシャリ気味。
 バランスが中低域よりであるため中低域の量感が強いIEMと合わせた場合には聞き疲れする可能性があるが、中低域の解像度が高いので、中低域が飽和してしまうと言うことはない。
 高域が強いIEMの場合には非常に派手な音になるが、刺さるところまで高域は強くなく、解像度も上がるので聞いていて楽しめる。
 今のところ、あまり合わないIEMはないが、JH13pro、UERM、MH334などの、バランスのいいIEMに合わせた場合に、もっともこのケーブルの本領を良く聞き取ることができるのではないかと思われる。
 今回購入したのはfitear用で、MH334に合わせて聞くことが一番多いが、MH335DWSRも良くマッチしている。
いずれも、とても楽しく聞けるようになる。
 ただし、これは組み合わせるヘッドフォンアンプや他のケーブルなどによっても変わってくるだろう。
 
 このケーブルは、OsloⅡ以上に高価なものではあるが、その価値がOsloⅡ以上のものであることは私としては確認できた。
 私は、Prima Donnaを購入してとても満足しているし、どのケーブルを合わせるか悩んだときには必ずPrima Donnaを選ぶだろう。
 しかし、このケーブルはとても高価であり、現在OsloⅡを持っている人が、改めて同じ仕様で買い換える必要があるかと聞かれた場合、このケーブルの価格を考えるとよく考えてから決めるべきだと思う。
 現在持っていない仕様を新たに購入する場合や、OsloⅡとPrima Donnaのどちらがいいかを悩んでいるのであれば、$200の追加は惜しいとは思わない。
実際にこのケーブルを見て、そして聞いてみれば、それはわかるのではないかと思う。
