    Just read up a few reviews of your PCs...impressive. Will look further into them when i can. Meanwhile, enjoy...they seem to be some pretty serious stuff.

    i just read up on these...the reviews are certainly universally high (and their highlights are also consistent with your brief description). Enjoy

    The most resolving, quiet and coherent cable I've heard or owned. The value of the investment in my system has soared. Never been happier with my system.

    If anyone gets the chance to demo these cables in their system (like I did), there's a good chance you'll purchase them or miss them a lot if you remove them.
    Miyagi1218, I had a full loom. My editor loved them and did a rave review. It is not uncommon for us to disagree. The Gobels are impressive but expensive, but the new HFC Pros are even more impressive and expensive. It is the realism of the soundstage that most impresses me with the HFCs. Their realism is just unequalled.

    Has anyone compared the Gobel with Siltech Triple Crown?

    I have pre/power /phono /DAC Vitus masterpiece . I am using 3 Goebel PC, 1 pair of SC & 1 pair of IC . These are my findings on Goebel cables . When you first plugged it into your components u will get a wow feeling . It's very energetic . A lot of mid bass energy . Oliver Goebel researched it with his superb 1 bass tower & reference speakers ( 1 of the best speakers in the market) . Over time , when your ears acclimatized to the sound , your opinion may change & u may want more highs etc . After having it for more than 2 years , these are my conclusion . If u have a leaner system , you would love the energy impacted by the cables . If you have room mode problems around 20-100 hz , it may be too much for U. Please take note this is my finding in my room with my syst . Recently I bought a harmonix Nagomi PC , it helps to remove a veil off my syst -a very transparent cable . My friend love Nagomi PC & esp Harmonix millionaire Ic compared to Tara labs cobalt , siltech single crown , Jorma prime , Furutech nano ncf PC etc . However another friend with Nordost Odin 1 & Odin 2 felt that Goebel is as good as nordin 1 but not better than Odin 2 particularly the IC

    Thank you audioblazer for sharing experience. I use Elrod Gold PC on my Vitus. The Elrod is pretty lively too although I don't know how it would compare with Goebel. One question, how does Goebel handle the mids? With so much bass, does it lean out the mids? Or the highs? Is the Goebel tonally balanced from top to bottom?

    Hi audioblazer.

    As you say based on your experience, Goebel signature sound is on the dark side.
    Are you using the PCs only on amplification or on another component as pre/dac too?
    I have a Goebel USB and an Ethernet coming this week.
    I'm thinking to put a Goebel PC on my TAD C600 preamp and keep the Siltech RMii on my Esoteric D02X and my Wadax Atlantis Server.
    My speakers are TAD Compact Rereference one. As you know, it has berillyum on dual concentric driver as Focal has on tweeter too.
    This way i think i would keep the Siltech stunning extension with the great Goebel bass energy and saturation.

    King Regards.
