Have gotten my hands on the Spirit II and am most impressed.
Y'all really do need to try them. Mine aren't goin anywhere.

Thanks, Dandy Don!

Cheers,

Good onya, mate!  I can't think of any cables that sound better in the context of "real and musical".  There are other cables, most of them for a ton of money that "may be" more attention grabbing in one area or another, but none of them have proven to be as balanced and engaging as the cables that you offer.  I want music.  Yours deliver.  Awesome!

Am so impressed with the Spirit II I ordered another set. Guess the subject is right.
Thanks Pete for making products that fit into my system so well.
Only thing I can suggest is more cooker time cause the Spirit II do take some time to come into their own.

Don, it has been my experience that cooking cables is just part of what is required to break them in.  After the Dharma does the heavy lifting it is always necessary to have settling time in the system to fully flesh out the capabilities in any particular application.  In addition I have noticed when a cable is moved to a different position (application) in the system there is a short break-in required to settle down.

Gents,
Just the coiling & un-coiling of the cables during the shipping process requires the cables to "break-in" again and then "settle" into one's system...

The dielectric needs it the most, me thinks!

I was determined to not give up on the Spirit II but man did they take on a number of personality changes breaking in.
Glad I stuck with them. A gentleman told me about a pair of speakers he purchased. Said he was the third owner and they still hadn't been broke in but once they were became just incredible. The first two hadn't even spent the time to break them in before judging and we're not talking cheap speakers either.
