Launch of Sablon Audio Panatela Interconnect

This just came in from Mark of Sablon Audio:

"Panatela features the finest sounding silver wire we could find, insulated with natural fibres, and arranged in an extremely low capacitance geometry using the superb Xhadow plugs. It's a very purist design and, whilst the prototypes have elicited an overwhelmingly positive response, it took a little more time to make it sufficiently rugged to ensure reliability.

Sonically speaking, you will hear a stunningly natural musical presentation with remarkable detail. It delivers accurately and evenly across the full frequency range with no 'tipped up silver signature'. The cable has been voiced neutrally for widespread applicability and makes a wonderful partner to our power cords, Robusto and Gran Corona. I'm confident that it continues to deliver on Sablon Audio's reputation for high fidelity with great musicality. Work is now underway on a matching speaker cable............

Panatela is priced at $850 for a 3 foot pair, terminated with Xhadow rca plugs, subject to the usual Sablon terms regarding loyalty discount / DHL shipping / trial period. Full details are now uploaded onto our website and this will shortly be updated for the xlr version once finalised."
