TESTIMONIAL:
"So what did the MA5's do for my system? My MA5s have been in my system now for several years.

Transparency beyond words. Every minute detail and nuance is portrayed. Rosin on bows, the bite and breath of brass, plucked instruments and the warmth and subtleties of voice. The later being true for both single (male or female vocalist) and massed voices and instruments by provided an insight to individual voices without compromising the ensemble effect.

Dynamics are portrayed in the most elegant and effective way. Large ensemble crescendos are majestic and especially transparent. But the most interesting aspect of the cable's dynamic ability is in its portrayal of Micro Dynamics. This is especially apparent in piano music with the initial note attack and decay providing a realistic and stunning life like effect.

Imaging was spectacular. The sound stage was wider and deeper than ever before creating a sense of a realistic venue and when coupled with Dynamics and Transparency give the listener a most engaging realistic and palpabe performance.

If anything is true about the MA5 it is that every listening experience provides new discoveries and insights. You know the feeling of exhilaration, the foot tapping, body swaying and heart pounding excitement. No other cables, that have been in my system or listened for evaluation in my system, have been able to sustain Engagement like the MA5s." Sincerely, Samuel Bruce

MA5 INTERCONNECTS
RCA version shown in the photo. XLR balanced also available in the shopping cart.

The MA5 consists of 36 runs of solid core, small gauge and individually insulated, silver coated copper wire which is then silver soldered to the termination of choice. Silver coated copper wire was chosen for the excellent balance of sound that it provides. The cable has an attractive appearance and possesses excellent RFI and noise rejection. That cable is flexible, durable and easy to manage.

Cables are the same price up to 1 meter. Length, termination and breakin service are selected in the shopping cart. Custom lengths are available. Select the closest length in the shopping cart and then specify the custom length you need in the shopping cart "special notes" area found on the page where you fill in your address information.

This model cannot be used from turntable to phono preamp input. See our phono cables for that application.

Beauty is beyond the surface. For Morrow, the beauty is in the wire. The difference from all others? We simply mold the design with our advanced SSI technology. Every individual customer order is hand-crafted to each Morrow customer’s desire by one of the finest technicians in the world. In fact, each product is individually autographed by its product development technician. We call them "artisans".

Designing and building cables is a delicate business, requiring just the right balance of design, gauge, wire type and dielectric—the very physics behind a phenomenal listening experience. This is why we use solid core, small gauge, individually insulated wiring in our cables. There are absolutely no stranded wiring here, which robs you of the opportunity to hear detail, 3D realism and experience all that is deserving for a profound listening experience.

Cable Evaluation Room

Whether a customer needs speaker cables or phono cables, interconnects, digital or iPod cables, high-end guitar cables, studio cables, we have products for various budgets starting at $49 to our $4,000 Elite Grand Reference speaker cables. No matter the selection, we use solid core copper, silver coated, silver-soldered wiring and minimal insulation with the best selection of terminations from which to choose.

Hear for yourself. Select a Morrow product and try it for 60 days. You’ll be pleased knowing you made a sound decision.

Termination Options

Terminations options are RCA to RCA, XLR balanced and XLR balanced to RCA versions.

The RCA version comes with high quality standard RCA's that should please the most discriminating listener. For those who desire the absolute best, Eichmann KLE Copper Harmony and Eichmann KLE Silver Pure Harmony upgrades are available, with the Eichmann KLE Silver Pure Harmony being the best that we offer for this model.

The Eichmann KLE Copper Harmony incorporates silver coated copper pins, denoted by the yellow colored label. The Eichmann KLE Silver Pure Harmony incorporates pure silver pins, denoted by the pink colored label.

The Eichmann connectors incorporate a plastic housing so that the signal does not pass through the bulky metal mass of the common connector design. Instead, the signal passes through two small pins for the positive and ground. This design reduces eddy currents and skin distortions. You can expect about a 5% to 10% improvement in the sound when using the Eichmann connectors.

Copper or Silver Eichmann? The choice can be partially decided based on the "tone" of your system. If it trends toward a bright sound, using the Copper Harmony Eichmanns will tone that down. If your system personality trends toward a warm sound and you desire it brighter, choose the Silver Pure Harmony Eichmanns.

The Balanced versions come with high quality Neutrix XLR's with silver coated pins. These connectors provide an excellent signal transfer which have been proven to allow low level subtleties as well as a natural and expansive soundstage to come through.

Break-in Time & Service

Breaking in new equipment and speakers, including breaking in cables is a necessary and audible process. During this process, one might experience sonic changes: tonal shifts, lacking bass frequencies, harshness, soundstage limitations and other changes. We do not fully understand what happens, but it is real and has been experienced by many audiophiles. One should not be concerned about this process.

The good news is that once this process has passed, sonic bliss greets the audiophile with every listen. With our cables, one cannot stop listening to recording after recording. Many new and exciting things in the recordings are discovered, which were before masked and smeared over with the previous cables used.

We have provided a paper explaining the break-in process and what you will hear. In it are actual customer testimonials and what they heard at the different stages of break-in.

Break-in service is available, saving you the time and hassle of breaking in your cables. This allows you to avoid the "difficult stage" of the break-in process. This service is selectable as an option in the shopping cart.

If you trip over your cable, if your pet eats your cable, if your child takes scissors to your cable, if your cable gets tangled in a sweeper, etc, we will repair or replace it for free. You only pay the shipping. See the warranty policy here.

60 Day Return Policy

At Morrow Audio, we want you to have the proper time with our cables in your personal system. Unlike most companies who provide a 30 day return, we provide a 60 day return which allows you to experience the improvements that our design offers, un-rushed and on your timetable.

As you enjoy our cables in your system, you will experience a larger soundstage, greater musicality and realism with your music. For most, it is a jaw droppng experience from the very first hookup.
