We are proud to offer world class Clarity Cable by audio industry stalwart Melissa Owen in Wichita, Kansas. Melissa last confirmed prices 5 May 2022.
Clarity Cable supplies the highest value in every known independent comparison within each cable's price category. In our opinion, Melissa’s Vortex power cables provide the best value in the line, but all Clarity Cables offer superb value and performance. Ca. 2019-20 an audiophile club in Texas directly compared and preferred Melissa's $800 Vortex over a popular brand $5k power cable.
This personal experience may help in your decision: HERE are details Re. our reverberant field speaker called Space Generator, with input impedance ca. 30-ohms, higher than a typical 8-ohm speaker. The higher is a speaker’s input impedance the less does the speaker cable contribute to the total load and sound quality. Further, being an auxiliary speaker, the SG contributes only a small ratio of the total musical energy. These points suggest different grades of speaker cables would sound similar on the Space Generator.
Several persons were in our 2018 RMAF display room during setup, which was almost complete except for the cable swap described here. Clarity Cable was throughout the system except for the Space Generator speaker cable. We listened to a brief music program, then Clarity Cable "Natural" replaced our own "Pure Speaker Power" cable on the Space Generator.
I expected little to moderate improvement. Instead, all present agreed the change was big and obvious; the "canvas" was blacker, distortion lower, and spatial effects more clear.
Hans Looman (then of Resonessence, has since started Infigo Audio) explained his belief that Clarity Cable, renown for exceptional shielding, provides a better and cleaner signal resulting in the audible benefits described.
My general perception Re. Clarity Cable closely matches pro reviewer Doug Schroeder’s @ Dagogo. Cable is an essential audio component as critical as anything else in the system. Once you hear a moderately refined or better system with exceptional cable @ Clarity’s level or beyond, it is difficult or impossible to down grade the cable loom.
An automotive analogy: a refined system with an entire loom of Clarity or similar quality cable is like a high-performance vehicle with perfectly tuned suspension, tires and tire pressure for a given track. Down grading the cable in any significant way is like two diagonal tires with the wrong pressure, and maybe one of the struts or control arms binding @ maximum compression or extension. Performance is not terminally degraded, but the driver or listener senses an undesirable unease or worse.
Clarity Cable’s audio and musical qualities are neutral overall; Clarity works well in a wide array of applications and is not taste nor system dependent.
Upon request we shall email images of Clarity Cables bent about as sharply as possible, thus giving potential buyers a good idea of how it fits in their system, which reflects on the minimum required length.
We have a good selection of demo Clarity Cables in stock to ship for 30-day audition with full refund; request more time if necessary. Please contact us for frequent special discounts not made public.
Melissa makes Clarity Cables to order; queue ranges from 2 weeks to a little longer on occasion, shipped from Wichita, Kansas. Clients can keep the demo cables till their new replacements arrive.
