XLO speaker cables

Anybody has any experience with these?

I am demoing a pair of their UltraPlus 6 series, and they sound very detailed, neutral, and clean. Very dynamic I would say.

I am surprised, as I was completely unfamiliar with the brand (From Greece?), and they don’t look that “pretty”

Yes they are not cheap. But they are noticeably better than my current cables costing about $170 per pair. The improvement was not subtle. Switched back to old wires, and noticed immediately something was missing.

But they don’t have the looks of your usual “snake oil” fancy speaker cables. Very simple.
