Link Cryo Reference HCX High power
Hi Mark and Jan,
As promised a long time ago, some feedback regarding your new HCX high Current x power cable.
I was originally was intending buying a second Cryo
Reference cable for my amp having used the first on my CD player.
Now as you saw from the first email, the cryo
reference is a Spectacular cable, revealing detail and handling transients with
I had to ask myself whether this cable would be
bettered. I borrowed another cryo reference to compare against a high current
HCX. I tested
reference and high current x in various combinations. I came to the conclusion that the High Current HCX is definitely suited to the
amplification. The Reference is NO way a inferior cable, it does a superb job of lower current applications. It doesn't do a bad job with
an amp. As it says on the tin, the High Current HCX
is designed for amp use and is superb. It is the big brother to the Reference,
the same traits...but even more so! Transients are
handled extremely well, giving a great sense of space, clarity and detail. The
Combination of Reference and High Current HCX are a
marriage made inheaven. Well worth borrowing one for a trial..You may end up
persuaded by sonic ability to buy one like I did.
ahead and enjoy!
Comparative Review By Simon Granger
1m Missing Link Cryo Reference Prototype Mains Lead
v Yamamura Churchill M600
received a 1 metre length of Cryo Reference Mains Cable from Mark at the Missing
Link to try, so I unplugged the existing Yamamura Churchill M600 and in went
the Missing Link Reference (bear in mind that the Yamamura Churchill's are a
well respected, not to mention a well expensive, mains cable with a price that
starts or started, at around three times that of the price of the Missing Link).
soon as you hear the ML Reference, you realise just what the Yamamura
Churchill's were doing. Sonically the Missing Link cables are virtually
invisible, and, as a consequence they show up the differences between the two
cables immediately and without the need to do any swapping around.
ML Reference, again, like the Cryo Reference Interconnect when compared with
Nordost Balanced SPM, demonstrated it's effortlessly superior resolution, air,
space, insight, timing and transparency all within about fifteen minutes of
being plugged in from cold.
the extra attributes mentioned above did not come at the expense of anything.
There is no downside.
have used the Yamamura Churchill's for the last three and a half years and have
been very pleased with them as they offered an overall improvement over the
Transparent Audio Mains Link I was using, they worked well and never seemed to
interfere with the music. What they were doing, with their heavily RF shielded
thick copper construction was effectively filtering the mains into the
components, and as a result filtering the music too, although you'd never know
it until you heard the Missing Link.
couldn't realistically call this a comparison test as the ML Reference is just
so much better in every way it makes the concept of comparing the two redundant.
A near mythical esoteric expensive mains solution versus a new, superbly engineered sonically invisible one at a fraction of the cost? No contest.
