after 25 years of very serious audiophile pursuits this cable experience is right up there crossing boundaries with anything i have heard.
Very cool. Things have been very quiet in cable land lately, so this is exciting info! Sounds like it also delivers on its promise thus far. Enjoy.
More cable Mike? Ouch! That drains cash faster than a supercharged Dodge Demon gulping gas.
Why are the LFD electronics so affordable and the cables so outrageous?
in the UK LFD has over the years done a broad range of electronics, but very under the radar products and very custom like the top level cables. i'm going to assume you actually read post #2 in this thread so you have a degree of understanding of what LFD is and where it came from. if not that might help to get it.
Galen Carol in California has decided only to deal with the bottom rung of LFD electronics and has had no dealings with upper LFD products......as far as i know.
here is a link to an archive page from the Art of Sound UK Forum; scroll down and there is a price list of electronics and cables from 1000 UK Pounds to 50,000 UK Pounds. i cannot verify any of those prices as current. i found this when i poked around looking for information.
both cables i have, which are the subject of this thread, are very custom built products; so not really on that price list. again; post #2 get's into the detail.
by design LFD is a very below the radar enterprise. it's likely the best and worst thing about them. now that i've experienced the performance honestly i don't care at all about any of that myself.
Mike, congratulations on your new cables. I have three questions.
1. You have written that you have four turntables, yet your signature lists three. What is the fourth table?
2. How did you decide which turntable/arm combination got these new cables?
3. Do you plan on getting more of these cables for your other turntables?
ok, now a month later with my LFD cables. they have been everything i was hoping they would be and much more. every time i play anything it's just so awesome. they have opened up and come alive even more.
i've run out of words to describe it. i'm hearing music and textures in familiar recordings i've never heard before. tonight i played a Reference Recording Lp of Rhapsody In Blue (RM-1003) and the realism of each instrument was jaw-dropping. just stunning. now i'm playing a Super Analog Disc reissue i've had forever (London KIJC 9238) DeBurgos, Falla: El Amor Brillo--Ballet. such interesting music, and so much more compelling and micro-dynamically alive. the music has such great headroom of information. it bristles with energy. and the magic is not really a matter of 'just' more open, or deeper bass, or anything simple even though it's all those things. it's simply delivering more music. it's transformative of recordings like a much better amplifier or phono stage.
it's also the Turntable, arm and cartridge too, along with the EMIA SUT and CS Port phono. but these cables are figgen components.
i know Audiophile Bill just got a much more modestly priced version of the LFD and has had quite an eye-opening experience. these cables are quite amazing.
