Recently, Jay Luong from Audio Bacon just released his “27 Best Audiophile Power Cables” and this is what he had to say about the “Obsession NCF” power cable… https://audiobacon.net/2019/08/17/27-audiophile-power-cables-reviewed/15/
Triode Wire Lab’s The Obsession NCF is probably the most balanced cable on this list. It’s neutral but still warmer sounding than most of the power cables in this category.
To be honest, I didn’t realize what balanced meant until I heard the Obsession power cable. You’re basically getting all the best parts of sound in the proper dosages.
Deep, propulsive, punchy bass
Realistic air and cymbal shine
Naturally holographic soundstage
Detailed enough to be convincing
Tangibility – conveys the physical properties of instruments
The Obsession has all of these traits but doesn’t particularly excel at any of these. But it does more than enough. Balance.
Aside from these qualities, this cable does have some of the most accurate reproduction of treble I’ve heard. Leading edges are also well-articulated. The trade-off is a slightly more grey/lighter-brown tone on vocalists.
To conclude, this cable is a pleasure to listen to and difficult to skip a track with. The only drawback for me was that the voices don’t sound as naturally colored – but that’s usually the case with more neutrally tuned cables. This cable stands out from the crowd.I highly recommend a listen.
