Meeting Abbas (Managing Director, Wireworld UK) is quite an experience. Aside from loving the brand and it’s abilities, Abbas is positively exstatic about the benefits of Wireworld over other cables, due partly to precision design and manufacturing and partly to their unique testing process. Rather than testing the sonic and visual capabilities of their cables /against /other branded cables, they test each cable against the banchmark of /no cable /to test how close their cables are to a direct connection. They even go to practical lengths at shows to directly connect items to each other by facing them back to back and comparing the performance to their cables.
This unique approach of evaluating cables by comparing them to a direct connection has enabled Wireworld to develop cables that preserve more of the beautiful harmonics, textures and dynamic expressions that make music so enjoyable. Whilst some audiophiles like the “cottage industry” nature of other branded cables, for the purest quality connection, Wireworld cables are machine made and offer an excellent “close as possible” alternative to a direct connection.
The audio cables start from the Luna 6 at only £29.50 for budget concious audiophiles, going upto the Solstice 6 at £49.50, Oasis 6 at £121.50 for an even greater upgrade in sonic performance over budget cables, to the Gold Eclipse at £701 where the magic really starts to happen.
