ALLNIC ZL TECHNOLOGY CABLES

Review Summaries:

From 6moons:


“Adding up more depth, more recorded ambiance, more bass, more textural diversity, more transient fidelity in the time domain and finally improved power conversion... I wasn't at a loss but serious gains from lots of (lower) losses.  Prior flavour shifts with cable assignments had mostly played along the axes of hard/soft, bright/dull and shiny/matte to register as primarily sideways moves. But Allnic's ZL loom had unceremoniously leapfrogged into a higher octave of resolution and recreation of space.  After sixteen years on the job, I'd been had in a bigger way than I thought I still had room for…

Allnic's ZL Cable loom arrives without unobtainium conductors, carbon fibre or liquid slurries. It sports no magnets, no dielectric battery charges, no external drain wires. It proposes no unwieldy terminator boxes, no bulky resonance suppressors at the half-way points, no novel geometries, no exotic insulation materials. Six nines aren't even in its vocabulary. Nor are amorphous, nano, cryo, gold or palladium. Instead Kang Su Park focused his attention on hot-welded not soldered, screwed or crimped connections; on premium connectors with high-pressure contacts; and mu-metal magnetic shielding for the line-level signal. Very well made, physically unobtrusive, of modest diameters, nothing here plays to audiophile excess. Except for its fastidious finish quality, I perceived no snobbish airs of exclusivity worship. And then I rather thought that such finishing was simply commensurate with price to acknowledge a customer's investment. In short, it all spoke to solid engineering, in-house resourcefulness and respect for the client.”

From Hi>Fi+:
 

“I was impressed from the first moment I plugged the cables into a system… They are impressive for two very clear reasons. First, they do no harm. Sounds are portrayed not just with intrinsic neutrality, but fidelity to the performance of the electronics and loudspeakers you use… Which leads me to the other clear reason why these cables are so sublime... absence of background noise…


Fidelity and noise aside, I found the cables had a remarkably consistent performance, and that lends itself to a full set of Allnics from front to back. They are remarkably well made, and that doesn’t just come across in their build quality, it comes over in the sound itself…


I thoroughly enjoyed my time playing with the Allnic cables. They are rewarding, and consistent enough to say universally so. The speed of attack and the silent backgrounds, alongside an intrinsic sense of getting out of the way of the rest of the system, are extremely satisfying and seductive properties. It’s hard not to be impressed with these Korean cables!”

From Audiophilia:


“This may be getting into the weeds. Yet, this is how a listener must approach a cable review or purchase. The differences between my varied in house power cords (Mojo Audio, Cardas, Audioquest, and Anticables) and the Allnic were not minute but they were understated and refined. And exactly what a discerning, patient ear craves. At matched levels, I heard more of the flutes (one player, overdubbed—how’s that for a deep dive into the mix?), more tactile strings (pads of fingers manipulating the strings with different pressures for varying dynamics) and a general feeling of cultivated well being with the ZL-5000 in the system…
I expected a quality sound commensurate with Park’s design prowess and research but this went beyond my expectations. If you have a very revealing high-end system, matched beautifully and setup correctly after years of careful research and curation, why would you not contemplate a $2000 power cord if it behaves as I report?”
