The breathing bore loading of the Tango speaker is unconventional. The LiveLine cables are different too. They combine solid-core copper conductors for the hot run, solid-core silver for the return, then add 2mm splices of the five resonator alloys to all ends. The sequencing of splices is different for the send/receive ends, different for the hot and return legs(1).n additional splice inserts at the center point of each conductor’s total length. Conductor gauge and code of alloy splicing are unique for each cable category. The interconnects are different from the speaker cables, those different from the power cords. The Neutrik RCA barrels and bayonet bananas are modified with three holes. The speaker cable terminations offer interchangeable connectors. Shotgun biwire is available. The thin LiveLine cables in Techflex sheathing are deliberately basic in appearance. The emphasis is on sonic excellence, not audio jewelry that underperforms but looks expensive. The conventional materials and connectors used to dress up cables sadly happen to all be detrimental to the sound.
- This construction makes the interconnect cables particularly directional. The red heat shrink indicates the receive/load end. However, some equipment like tube gear will sound better when the interconnect is inverted (red end on the send component or source).
“… The music flows with openess, realism, clarity, richness. The bass expression is the best I have heard. The list goes on. I don’t know how Franck Tchang does it. He makes all other cables gasp for breath, his cable is just so attractive in musicality. I think we can save a lot of cash in cables for a considerable time to come…”
“…It is that good! It is errie. At least until something else comes along, it will be a long satisfying musiclal journey. ASI makes matching cables to the Karan a dream no longer. Listening while I write at 3.00am…”
“It spotlights the spaces between individual notes and creates airiness with absolute clarity and darkness on a background of virtual 3D music. Still listening…”
