Sommer Cable Epilogue Cinch Cable 1,0

Reference RCA/Audio cable

You can always make a mountain out of a mole hill - and that’s why we really worked up a sweat when we developed the EPILOGUE reference cable. Based on our legendary STRATOS, we have packed four wires into one jacket which allows them to be connected in a crossover mode to reduce the capacitive value. Each wire is 100% shielded by a tight copper mesh and a semiconductor. For enhanced conductivity all four wires have a carbon conductor smoothing. The EPILOGUE ensures – and this without a prolonged break-in time – an absolutely neutral and simultaneously highly musical reproduction.

The EPILOGUE has been on the market since late 2002 and already soon after was able to stand its ground in many reviews. It is the definitive reference cable with serious Hi-Fi dealers who attach great importance to a linear transmission, instead of decorating the vitrines with “candy-coloured power current lines“. Among others, it also graces the Skyline Studios in Düsseldorf which have a worldwide reputation for high-class productions.

We recommend this cable for connecting preamps and power amplifiers, audiophile CD and SACD players, turntables and of course for professional studio applications. Owing to its low wire-to-wire capacitance of approx. 35 pF and based on experience, it will produce almost no losses with a maximum length of 10 metres. Due to its elaborate processing and sophisticated wiring, the EPILOGUE is offered exclusively as a ready-made set.

The connector is a modified, Teflon-insulated HI-CM07-SE/ALU connector which has been given a special finishing treatment and sophisticated shielding. It is not available through commercial shops. Please make sure before your purchase that it is an original cable manufactured by us.

  • Ideal for connections with the highest of demands (pre/power amplifier, CD player, DVD, DATA, phono, ...), especially for studio and hi-fi applications.
  • Very neutral, colouration-free and spatial sound image for the perfect reproduction, especially of classical instruments
  • The absolute reference in many renowned recording and mastering studios
  • Finished with gold-plated and modified Hicon HI-CM07-SE/ALU RCA plugs
  • Insulated with Teflon and additional shielding
  • Extremely low capacitance of 35 pF wire/wire (crossover)
  • Cable length: 1.0 m
  • Pair
  • The cable has been tested on almost all high-end systems from acknowledged brands

(Fine-tuned on the reference systems B&W Nautilus & Matrix Series as well as STAX Headphones Japan)

Also for high-end systems worth a test

WalterG, 22.12.2009
In Hifi systems are often sums spent for the cable connections. Not infrequently even a cable connection is much more expensive than the connected device, so with hundreds of satisfied Playstation 1 users, (those with RCA outputs, which exceed the most expensive CD players sound far). Not infrequently, a Shindo cable was used for connection, which costs about 1000.- EUR per meter. It was heard that this cable is even worthwhile.

Well, if you do not want to go so high-priced, this yellow summer cable is absolutely recommended. It has the best sound from all Thomann currently offered high end cables, namely none, and the best room resolution WITHOUT adding in the sound a certain sharpness, whereby a good room resolution is often bought.

The only thing that I noticed very negatively are the plug inserted by Sommer, they are not designed for high-end use, but completely alone and exclusively on professional use, and that means: There are bear forces necessary to the cable And then pull it off again. Unfortunately, the Switchcraft sockets, which are used very often in high-end circles, do not endure in the long run, they sound best, but are apparently not designed for such forces. Apart from that, even if it has not yet penetrated into the German high-end magazine image hifi: A good cable, also in comparison with the best on the market necessarily a comparison test worth.

Honest and good

BMG7, 14.04.2017
Yes, yes, we spend a lot of money on HIFI cables because they are always looking for the best. The Epiloque are not a Christmas trick, but they bring me back to the bottom of the facts. I already had many cables, all of which had something spectacular, but after some time they sounded somewhat unnatural. The epilogues do not have that. Everything is there, nothing is missing, nothing is overstressed, simply harmonious.
I use it from the sources (CD, TV, tuner, DVD) to the preamp, as well as from preamp to the power amplifiers.
Per:
+ Neutral sound
+ Good workmanship
+ Plug pack extremely well
Cons:
-pack waste (tin can as gimmick)
