Samba VS-1


Black Rhodium Jive Loudspeaker Cable Made in England

Samba VS-1

Our new Samba VS-1 has been given a fabulous review in Hi-Fi Choice.

We have received very many 5 Star and Recommended reviews in Hi-Fi Choice and other magazines over the years, but we cannot remember any review that has paid so many compliments to the sound quality.

Everything is Very Positive

Here are some of the compliments paid to Samba VS-1 in the review.

“. . very open, clean and expansive image.”

“The cable comes across as very neutral with a hint of extra treble extension. .”

“Bass control is excellent and highly tuneful. . .”

“. .it’s the ‘see through’ quality of the stereo image that feels most special here.”

“Stevie’s lush organ notes, rich vocals, funky bass rifts and explosive rim shots are all beautifully layered in a highly transparent and very wide sound stage.”

“. . . the Samba easily makes sense of the pile driving bass riff, thunderous drums, searing electric buzz-sawing vocals, enabling previously unappreciated acoustic guitars and congas to come through cleanly.”

“. . it works brilliantly with stripped out material.”

“It almost seems to gently aid the contrast of your music, enabling midband detail and vocals in particular to press slightly forward out of the mix, while deeper bass and the gaps between the notes take a step backwards.”

“Silences subjectively seem a little darker but no detail is lost.”

“ . . .this added level of contrast enables fine details around the decay of notes to ebb away much more convincingly.”

“This cable performs even stronger with valve amplification.’

“The quality of the midband communication comes nto its own and the extended treble detail and bass control lend support where most needed with valves.”

“The Samba VS-1 is ideally suited to orchestral music and classical fans will appreciate its ability to tease out complex layers of rich instrumentation.”

“. . it is equally at home with more intimate music where the perceived low distortion enables subtle voices and acoustic instruments to communicate their full emotional content.”

Has any other speaker cable at this price has ever received so many compliments from a reviewer?
