Hi Mike,

My MA-6 interconnects arrived yesterday (Monday) and I put them in my system right away.

Even with only two-day factory break-in, it's abundantly clear that these are subtle, refined cables; that's what I was looking for. Top and bottom may be a little ragged, but the midrange is already amazing. Voices sound, for want of a better term, more human (even though they weren't artificial before, or so I thought). One example: I play the harpsichord. Harpsichordists often slightly separate the notes of inner voices in order to make them stand out more from the top line, which tends to be more audible. I could clearly hear this being done on a recording I listened to last night, where I never noticed it before. If this is how they sound now, what will they be like when they are broken in??

More to follow after the interconnects get more hours on them.

"I have moved up the ladder with Morrow Audio and have the SP5 and SP4 SC's in a bi-amp configuration. I also have the MA6 ic as well now. Nice open sound to these and as you move up you add more fullness and an increase in separation.

I have found more transparency, weight and a bigger overall presentation when moving up the line. Just more revealing to me. Can be a good thing or bad thing depending on the system. Going from the MA4 IC to the MA6 has shown me my limitations to the system I am running at the moment. Not going to shoot the messanger here. Even with the break-in service I had to let these IC's run for a week 24/7 before I knew their true character. I also felt that the trade up price from MA4 to MA6 was worth it but I was really questioning myself when doing it. I really think you should give the MA4 a try at least before moving into another cable. The MAP3 power cord is really good as well. Bettered the Lessloss DFPC cord all around." AudioGon, Jp1208

"I have been mixing live sound close to 20 years as well as gone through many sound systems over the past 35 years. I have wasted away a lot of money trying to achieve the sound as if one was playing an instrument live. These cables do just that! They don't add any coloration to the music. You feel & hear the real soul of the instruments and vocals. I have had other sound engineers in my home to listen to these cables. Their mouths would drop open & thay would have big smiles on their faces! Save your money. Buy these cables!" Garry

"I wanted to take a minute to provide some feedback concerning your MA6 Interconnects, SP6 Speaker Cables, and your MAP3 Reference Power Cords. All of these models have greatly enhanced my audio system. I was using top of the line and high cost Nordost and Kimber products before and after replacing them with your products, I can say that the quality and performance of sound across the spectrum was definitely elevated. I describe the sound as simply elegant. Your products are reasonably priced; I would say a bang for the buck, just what is needed in the audio world today. Highly recommended." Kevin - Louisville

"I have Morrow cables, cords & interconnects in both of my systems and I am completely happy with them.Morrow cables are extremely musical, detailed and a flat put bargain to boot. In fact Morrow's Reference series replaced Kimber Select 1033's in my main system. Not only do the Morrow cables flat out sound better than the Kimber Selects, but with the savings from the switch I nearly paid for my secondary rig. You should call Mike Morrow and speak to him directly about his cables, he's the nicest guy that you will ever meet in the audio industry and he's very easy to talk to." Audiogon Forum, Craig Hoch

The Morrow MA4 was the first Morrow cable I compared to my Synergistic Research (SR) Apex cable. With that comparison I found that the Morrow MA4 had a more open soundstage than the Synergistic Research cable.

I was amazed at that because the Synergistic Research cable had the Active shielding, Tesla tunneling, Galileo MPC and was several multitudes more expensive. The Main difference was that the Morrow MA4's lacked the power of the SR cable and the bass was a little deeper. By power I mean the force in the music. The Morrow was a little light weight in comparison.

I then bought a MA6. The MA6 was new and broken in by Morrow. Now this cable retained all of the good qualities of the MA4 but added a deeper and weightier presentation. It now became clear that the Morrow MA6 was actually better in all things that mattered to me in a cable. That is, nice deep soundstage, highs and lows presented without glare but clear and defined and it had a sound that makes the music more listenable. The Synergistic Research Apex by comparison sounded blunt.

With the sound, cost and the flexibility of the Morrow MA6 cable , I chose to keep the Morrows and sell all of the Synergistic Research Apex. I now have have 2 sets of Morrow MA6 and a bi-wire set of Morrow SP6 speaker cables. Ken B.

"Right out of the box I can tell I made the right choice going with your cables and going for the highest end in each category. I can’t believe the separation of instruments and my soundstage is fuller and more dynamic. So far I am very pleased at the cable progress in my system.

Your product is the best kept secret in home audio for the true audiophile. I am so glad I found out about you on Audiogon because in Canada I had never heard of you before. You and your products are top notch and I will refer you to my friends and family for all their audio needs in the future.

You are also easy to talk to and knowledgeable, I am glad you steered me in the right direction in order to accomplish what I have always dreamed is possible in this hobby. With your cables, it is an audio oasis where the sound is so good that you can just relax, close your eyes and get lost into the music and enjoy it the way it was intended." Rob V

"This will be short, but wanted someone to know. I have spent years in this hobby getting to the point where I may consider myself done, or at least only moving up the line of equipment I own. Having been looking for a cable set to finish off my system and to provide the last bit of tweaking I have spent the past 2 years trying out all different cables, some inexpensive, and some expensive and have found the place to stop. Morrow Audio.

I had settled on their MA4 interconnects about a year ago and decided to play the field one last time. This time with Nordost, and their TYR cable. So I bought the TYR and go tit home, did the A/B to the MA4 and what did I hear? Well, the TYR had a slightly blacker background and I will call it softer highs at the expense of detail. It was a very soothing cable. I threw the MA4 back in and crapped myself. I liked the MA4 a lot better. It had way better bass, more detail on the high end and conveyed way more musical information. So I sold the TYR and traded up my MA4 for a pair of MA6, their highest line cable. Here is a summary in comparison to the TYR:

MA6 showed far more textures, deeper and wider soundstage, deeper and tighter bass, the MA6 sounded like live music in comparison to the TYR. In short, the MA6 crushed the TYR as did the MA4. I was searching for that cable that makes a violin really pop, a piano sound like a piano, a cable that makes the music REAL. This is the only cable that does it for me. Others have had the great detail, but at the expense of being harsh or missing bass or missing something. The MA6 has, to me, the perfect balance of detail, harmonic richness, texture, layering, soundstage, dynamics and bass.

I wound up buying the Morrow high end SP6 speaker cables as well and the combo is amazing, best cables I have ever heard and an amazing deal. No smoke and mirrors, no garden hose size cable, no silly boxes, batteries or anything of the sort. Simple, small cables made beautifully and sound incredible." Acurus

Hi Mike. I received the pair of MA6s with Eichmann silver bullets this morning. I already own a pair with the silver bullets which I use between my Lightspeed Attenuator and Forte Audio power amp. This second pair now goes between the preamp and Audio Research cd player. The first thing I put on was Cat Stevens Teaser and the Firecat and was staggered by the illusion of power these cables are able to convey. They are perfectly clear and fabulously open with stunning dynamics, deep bass and really fine vocals. I don’t know if it is the bullets which make the cables so good but cannot imagine a better sound. I have owned a lot of cables and am really glad I found the Morrow Audio range. Good thing about these is they sound really ambient and powerful without any separate power adapters and the like.

Thanks Mike and Kind Regards, Tim Vandenbosch

"Music has always been a passion of mine. Spinning records in the 80's on the air, running sound boards in different venues and of course live concerts. Finding the right set of cables, to unleash the full potential of my equipment has been a journey too! I have used very expensive cabling from Transparent Audio, MIT, and Kimber Cable, less expensive from Audio Art, Audio Metallurgy and Anti-Cables all achieving good to very good results. I very rarely had a ''wow'' factor in my listening experiences, always thinking in the back of mind, is there something else out there?

Morrow Audio is my final stop. Finally! For the price and performance, Morrow Audio has hit the ''Audio Euphoria Bulls Eye''. My beautiful wife has mentioned to me several times that she is hearing more of the inner music and even has explained blacker blacks to me in her own words. The MA6 interconnect is very revealing and detailed. Quite simply, it is breathtaking, awesome dynamics that really kick.

Morrow Audio cables aren't good or even very good, they are the ''Benchmark'' for audio reproduction. Other reviews of these fine cables are dead on, the MA6 is worth it's weight in gold!

Save your money, stop your searching, no more cables that look like hila monsters or anaconda's... Morrow Audio is the final stop of your audio journey." Greg F

I would like to share my thoughts with you regarding my recent cable purchases from Morrow Audio. First off, I would like to tell you a little bit about myself. I am 61 years old and was introduced to high end audio in the mid 1980s by a newly met friend named Gary. He took me to different high end stores and opened up a new world of hi fi to me.

Over the years, Gary and I have attended hi fi shows whenever they come to the bay area, the most recent about 5 months ago in San Francisco. Gary has also added to my listening experience by providing me with some real vintage Mullards and Telefunkin 12ax7s and others for both my preamp and cd player---man what a difference on the cd player. A few months ago, Gary replaced his speaker cables with a respected brand of cable that I could not afford-----it sounded very nice indeed.

This is the part where Morrow Audio cables come in to play. Garys new sound convinced me that it was time for some new cables, but I could not afford the brand that he purchased----so what do I do?? I started by going to the nearest High End shop to ask about cables. When I ask what brands they offer, I am floored by their response----we don't like any ones cables ---we make our own. Well, that sent me packing and I left the store. Then I decide to look for used cables on the internet. I saw some cables that I wanted to know more about and that led me to Morrow Audio.

After browsing your site, I became interested and wanted to know more. I read the testimonials, your design goals and the breakin article. Well, your special sale price for the MA1 and your return policy made it a no brainier for me. I took a chance and ordered a MA1. After all, how much could I loose?

After the MA1 arrived, I put it on the tuner because I was willing to leave the tuner on for 3 weeks for cable break in. From the very first listen, I knew that there was magic happening. While it was just FM, it sounded way better than I had ever heard it sound before. Now I am ready to roll the dice and order some speaker cables. After all, I can return it if I'm not happy! right.

Well, if the budget cable is good, then what of a step up? I ordered a bi-wired SP6. So what got better after the SP6? Everything got better! It is like a whole new system. You know all the words... yes, it is a major improvement in every category. It blew me away! Well now I want a better interconnect. I ordered a MA6 to go preamp to power amp. First impression---bass-bass-bass! Bottom line is this--- Your cables have exceeded my expectations in every category. Top shelf--outstanding; especially considering the down to earth prices for this kind of performance.

By the way... I gave my friend Gary a MA1 to take home and try out in his system. He has informed me that I should not expect that cable returned to me. Imagine that!!! He said that it bettered a much more expensive cable that he was using, and this coming from a guy who has been an audiophile much longer than me, and he is also a jazz musician.

So there is my response... I am grateful that I stumbled onto Morrow Audio and I am pleased beyond words. You have discovered how to make cables that allow one to listen into the music without a sonic signature as far as I can tell. I am hearing more detail and speed --bloom and transparency without any etching--and the bass is very solid and well defined without being boomy or overpowering. All of the cables have arrived within the estimated time frame and you have corresponded in a timely manor to all my E-MAIL questions.You were also very friendly and helpful when I called. Sincerely and gratefully, Michael Kennedy

To all at Morrow Audio I'd like to extend my sincere thanks for the 2 meter MA6 Copper Eichmann RCAs that I received yesterday. The cables were inserted between my mono amps and preamp and my, what a wonderful difference they've made in my listening enjoyment! I'm hearing living/breathing music like never before and I hope it just keeps getting better! Well done guys. Thank you so much for your efforts. Darel D

"First a word about Morrow Audio's level of customer service. In a word, impeccable! Mike is ultra-responsive, friendly, and extremely customer-oriented. He worked with me on two different deals simultaneously (never complaining about my haphazard requests and staggered orders). These deals included trade ups of both interconnects and speaker cables. With packages whizzing around and emails flying back and forth, Mike stayed on top of the situation and best of all, delivered superlative quality cables at a great price (love that trade-up program!).

I am now the delighted owner of two sets of MA6 Grand Reference RCA Interconnects as well as a 2 meter length pair of SP6 Grand Reference Speaker cables. All of which have benefitted from Mike's free burn-in service (at this product level).

To say that my Martin Logan Summit-X based system sounds "Grand" is a serious understatement. On well recorded media, the sound is nearly beyond description! The inner detail has opened up like never before. Can I hear the lead violinist shift in his seat a bit between stanzas? Yes, I most certainly can! Can I tell the lead violinist is actually a man as opposed to a woman? Yes... but only according to the album's liner notes ;-) I have yet to hear any cables that allow discernment of gender (in an instrumental piece anyway)... but this raises the point of comparison between cables.

I've been at this high-end audio hobby for a very long time (30+ years) and I can say unreservedly that Morrow's Grand Reference cables are at least as good, if not better (and in some instances, far, far better) than any other cable I have ever used. Not to drop names, but I will anyway... I've owned Nordost, Transparent, Crystal, and Acoustic Zen... to name just a few. These were by no means inexpensive models. In comparison, Morrow wins. No question, end of story. I am absolutely thrilled with the musical presentation my system now offers. Thank you Mike Morrow for offering such high-value cables. Well done sir!" Sincerely, Todd Vafiades

Solid Core: Using solid core wire removes the stranding distortion found in stranded wire designs. This eliminates the smearing effect, allowing much more information to pass through.

Small Gauge: Using a proprietary small gauge wire removes the skin effect distortions that are unavoidable in larger gauge construction. You will hear things in your music that you never heard before.

Individually Insulated: Insulating each strand of wire individually allows the signal to flow unhindered instead of jumping from strand to strand. Great detail in your music is achieved. The emotion of the music comes through.
