WyWires Diamond and PMC Twenty5 Series - New and Available at AV Design

Last Saturday, 6th Aug, Tony Low and James Tan of AV Designs organized a small appreciation get together with some of the local audio-gents. The event also include the launching of the latest WyWires Diamond series interconnects and also the PMC Twenty5 loudspeaker series.

Taken from their website:

Diamond is the newest cable in our lineup, our luxury aesthetic line of cables. Diamonds have a brand new internal configuration, taking all that we have learned to create a new concept in Litz wire air dielectric design. Diamond cables contain a complex combination of different conductor and dielectric materials, optimized to provide a neutral and well-balanced tone, along with detail retrieval that goes beyond what we’ve been able to do in the past. Additionally, we have achieved a superior level of transparency and dynamics for the ultimate music enjoyment experience. Identified by a subtle sheen on black, with carbon fiber tubing on either end.  A discreet etched black medallion that moves along the cable allows the owner to slip WyWires branding out of sight.

From the chit chat we had on that fine Saturday afternoon, there are several information about this latest addition of cable to the already solid performing WyWires suite. WyWire is confident that the combination of discrete conductors, wrapped in 2 layers of cotton, single strand of enamel insulated solid core, carbon fibre tube and PTFE Teflon and air as dielectric, this cable will provide the most harmonically correct and tonally neutral sound that works equally well with any high quality components, tube and solid state.

I had the opportunity to compare between the Diamond and Silver series in the demo room. Playing Norfolk Country Line by Doug Macleod, immediately I could detect a more open and unrestricted flow of vocal once the Diamond interconnects were introduced into their resident set up of Bryston and PMC speakers.

We also had the chance to listen to PMC Twenty5.23 and 22 and compare the musicality between them. The 22 having a bigger driver than 23, gave a bigger hard hitting punch compared to the more extensive bass of 23. I personally prefer the 23 more as I am a fan of nice and extensive, dig deep bass.

The newly designed fin at the bottom of the speakers seems to further enhanced the sound from the Twenty series based on a more controlled airflow with less friction.

WyWires and PMC can be demoed and purchased from AV Design. Please contact Tony Low or James Tan at:
