The Absolute Sound "Best Interconnect" 2008/2009
The Perfect Vision "Editors' Choice" Award Winner 2007
Absolute Sound Interconnect Cable of the Year
"Ray Kimber has always delivered exceptional sound and value in his low- and mid-priced cables and interconnects; the Hero takes the Finalist honors in a very competitive category. With an accurate tonal balance, great transparency, and wonderful bass definition, the Hero sets the standard in affordable interconnects." --The Absolute Sound, review of Hero with WBT-0144 terminations, February/March, 2003.
Detailed and Dynamic
Kimber's Hero interconnect offers more detailed and dynamic sound than Kimber's famous PBJ cables. Utilizing Kimber's patented VariStrand conductor geometry, new metallurgy, new GyroQuadratic field geometry and Teflon dielectrics, Heroes offer imaging and transparency close to Kimber's more expensive Silver Streak ($190/M) cables, but at a fraction of the cost.
"Bass is Prodigious"
The Absolute Sound magazine rated the Kimber Kable Hero interconnect and Kimber Kable 8TC speaker cable as the "Best Interconnect and Speaker Cable" in the Winter 08 / Spring 09 issue. "The Hero's bass is prodigious; the mids are either dead neutral or a notch light, with dynamics at once powerful yet finely shaded. The 8TC is always musical, balancing detail, liveliness, tonal neutrality, and dynamic contrasts with a very realistic, holographic soundstage."
"A Sonic Near-Twin"
Kimber Kable Hero Interconnect won an "Editors' Choice" award in the Winter 2007 Home Theater Buyer's Guide from The Perfect Vision magazine.
"A sonic near-twin to the more costly Kimber Select KS-1021, Hero yields by direct comparison only a tiny bit in sheer control, ultimate transparency, and inner detail to its pricier brother," reports The Perfect Vision.
