It took me several months to test the Varidig Sextet balanced (AES/EBU) XLR-terminated (with the STEALTH proprietary Titanium/Teflon/silver XLR connectors).
I tried it between my EMM Labs CDSD and DCC2 cd player. This player comes with optical ST glass cables and I compared these to the
At the beginning was hard to notice any difference between them and that means that the Stealth
