Chris Kline knows copper. He knows sound too. He's the last guy to say something good about his own work. Still I was fortunate to hear it from others.
Upon conversing with a few engineers I have a great deal of respect for, it became clear they thought quite a lot of Chris' work. When Dr. Bill Gaw says nice things about a product, you take note. Then I heard the same from Win Tinnon, the creator of the great Saskia turntable and Dave Slagle, a great audio brain and one of two founders at Emia Audio. Essentially one superlative pair of ears after another went on to say how much they enjoyed Chris' cables. Dave Clarke is also a big fan. Essentially everyone who has reviewed them has been awed.
Chris' cable is also rather affordable. He doesn't make 15 types of cable, just the one cable he thinks best, and he charges what he feels is a fair price for it. (sounds almost suspicious in this day and age)
If you have a well balanced system, and want to keep it that way, this is the cable for you.
Frank Schroeder, the analog genius, had this to say about Chris' new cable.
About two years ago a good friend introduced me to a young guy by the name of Chris Kline who, so my friend told me, was making excellent interconnects and speaker wires. He was wondering if I was interested trying them. I do get many such inquiries, usually decline similar offers, but, decided to check them out based on how these were described to me. Just e few days later I received a box with some apparently well made, neither skinny nor Python-like interconnects(1m long), flexible and equipped with very high quality RCA connectors. I tried them between my pre- and power amp, also briefly between several stand alone phonostages and either linestage or a TVC. From the start it was clear(sic) that the wiring was essentially neutral, with a touch of emphasis on the upper mids(lower highs). Bass was tight, extended and exhibited, due to the highly resolving fundamental und midband region, great tonal shadings. Highs were airy and without any "grain". Focusing on the music was easy, individual aspects didn't call attention to themselves, - with one exception.Unfortunately, the slight discontinuity between upper mids and highs never disappeared completely, even after some fairly long "breakin" time. Chris suggested I should try a revised version and so I did. Now it approached how I envision an interconnect. True to the source, both in terms of detail resolution AND perceived frequency balance/continuity. If anything, resolution was even better.I'm not a member of the "my cables cost as much as half of the total of my system" camp, but I do agree that speaker wires and interconnect make a difference(imho all for reasons that are based on the laws of physics!) .. Irrespective of the price, I consider the Telwire interconnects among the best I have ever heard, - and I've heard many(costing little to large 4 figure $ amounts). They're staying in my system. Thank you Chris!
