Platinum HD Interconnect
When listening to music easily at home, I use the re-enacted version of LS 3/5a. I didn't want to force too much. Sometimes it sounds dim in the high frequency, but it doesn't get tired for a long time. But when I insert the Platinum HD, the sudden clear sense of transparency immediately attracted the attention of my ears.
Platinum HD does not simply brighten the high frequencies. This kind of high-frequency enhancement effect can be achieved by most silver wires. The transparency and openness after I add Platinum HD is not a simple high-frequency brightening. It is a natural and comfortable extension. Moreover, Platinum HD has not changed the timbre of LS 3/5a itself, it is more like removing impurities in the sound, and the texture has become purer and more crystal clear.

Platinum HD Power AC Cord
The first selection is my main album for comparison, and the fifth "Danny Boy" sung by Eva Cassidy becomes very gentle and natural after using the Platinum HD power cord. The background is very quiet, singing and guitar playing are particularly balanced.
Playing Eric Clapton "Unplugged" concert live album, because the background is dark enough to make every guitar plucking, stringing, piano playing and drums appear vivid, and the sound image is clean and free of burrs. A sound is as clear as it can be retracted freely, and there are almost no impurities between the audio and video of different instruments, and it is as clean as a blank canvas. Eric's singing is gentle and relaxed, true and natural.
In the fourth song "Tears in Heaven", he is particularly gentle and affectionate, as if he feels his longing in the space. In the sixth song "Nobody Knows You When", the singing is more casual and exciting, and the rhythm is excellent, and the audience's drum noise makes the atmosphere of live listening. The guitar solo is clear and echoes with the piano and singing. Full of musicality.

"Viard Audio Design is an audio cable brand designed and produced in France. At first, I didn't know many people because they only focused on the domestic sales in France. Later we got to know it through the introduction of Japan 5555. The biggest advantage of Viard cables is that they have science supported by the French government. Measuring instruments, developed our own research and production of CU-VHQ ® and High-Bias pre-treatment ® patented silver-copper alloy. The wire core is a piece of alloy gold before production.
All wire measurement methods are very scientific, and the bandwidth is capable Achieving the MHz range. This is very important for digital cables, especially BNC clock cables. This year Viard developed a joint lock used by aerospace technology, which is compatible with the Single-wired/Bi-wired Platinum HD flagship speaker cable .
I like the transparency of Viard. I didn’t adjust the tone on the frequency, but with a sense of sunshine and grace."
