The main quality that distinguishes the Kondo cable line is their lack of a distinguishing quality. Everything it does is in balance and harmony. The KSL voicing bespeaks of the genuine article—this “rightness” was immediately apparent—and they continue an alternative pathway leading to realism and away from Hi-fi. The KSL will find their niche among classical and acoustic jazz aficionados with a penchant for a close approximation of what they hear in the real world and an antipathy for sound effects. Their underlying character is like life—warm, continuous, holistic, and vital while still being neutral and accurate. They capture the ebb and flow of music. The KSL-Spc copper speaker wire deserves special mention as bang-for-the-buck value. While not as refined, subtle, or with as much inner life as the SPz, it nonetheless has the hallmarks of Kondo sound.
