Omega Mikro's Golden Helix Plus (Pair)
Speaker Cables by Omega Mikro
Hook up these $85 wires and you’ll think you just spent $500 or $1000 more on your speakers. The first thing you’ll hear is inexplicably improved fidelity, across-the-board. Check out Dark Side of the Moon – the opening heartbeat’ll sound supernatural. Your woofers won’t boom like that annoying purple Honda CRX that I always get stuck next to at stoplights. All bass instruments – acoustic, electric or synthesized – will immediately have more punch and cleaner harmonics. Singers will sound like they’ve stepped two feet closer. When you listen to your favorite CDs, you’ll hear details you’ve never heard before. Henri from Salt Lake told us, “Everything improved, the music seemed to be a lot closer to my ears and my heart.”
Here’s what’s special about our speaker cables: They’re handmade from silver-plated, single strand, high-purity copper wire drawn and heat-treated to our spec. Our cable is coated with ultra-thin (less than .0002”) low loss insulation, twisted into a super-tight, field-canceling helix. Each cable is given four hours of our proprietary crystal-modifying treatment.
The result is an amazing, inexpensive speaker cable. Our Golden Helix is competitively priced with Monster Cable you can buy off-the-rack at Best Buy. But its performance slays cables costing 20 times more! In head-to-head listening tests, our Golden Helix has bested the Audioquest Gibralter, Kimber 8TC, XLO Ultra 6, Wireworld Atlantis II, Straight Wire Rhapsody 5 as well as high-priced cables by Monster, Tara Labs, Goertz and DH Labs. Henri was an especially happy customer: our Golden Helix replaced his $4000 Synergistic Research Designer's Reference cables. As he put it, “More music for three thousand nine hundred and fifteen dollars less, (that’s) a good deal if I ever saw one.”
ANOTHER STEP UP
All Clearview wires are available in a Plus version. Plus uses conductors with our new stress-relived metallurgy. I hear the Plus making the most difference in quiet passages: held guitar or piano chords sustain longer and resonate more clearly as they fade into silence. The breathiness of singers and flutes, the metallic ring of cymbals is better articulated and less abrasive. For fans of acoustic music, small group jazz or chamber music, we recommend Plus without hesitation.
