At first glance
These cables look robust for serious audio work. The
cables are of thick construction, so we can be confident that they have ample
conductor volume to minimise losses and noise pickup while recording. The
jackets also feel durable and robust which ensures that these cables will
remain physically unharmed for many
The connector heads are also well constructed and
provide good contact with the majority of inputs out there. The Klotz and the
Vovox use Neutrik connectors. The Lavas use connectors from G&H Industries. Experienced purchasers of audio
cables know that these manufacturers of connectors

is that the retro coil is the most flexible among the others,

The standard Lava and Klotz are the most visually
discrete among the group, with a basic smooth jacket which gives it a standard
industrial look which serves

its length, making it aesthetically pleasing.
