In the Prime Reference cable series, there’s no such effect as “a negative expectation produces a positive result.” This cable series is the entry level among Hemingway Cables. They have a definite edge of their own. Price hierarchy within the Hemingway product lineup is a different matter. In a very high resolution system, every little thing makes a difference. While the distinctions between various samples are quite real, their importance will vary from system to system and from listener to listener. As always, only you can determine that importance, along with your own internal value preferences.
A single inferior link puts the whole thing at risk. One superior link, on the other hand, can be a waste—quite possibly a very expensive one. You can choose cables of your own according to your system—whatever you want to hear. Whatever your choice may be, you will be able to see exactly what you hear! The total absence of the electronic sound will give you and unforgettable experience as if you’re in “Wiener Musikverein.” We understand any skepticism about how one piece of wire is able to dramatically alter the sound of an audio system. But it does.
With Hemingway cables, you will not hear any roll-off highs or softened transients. Using the condition that you had set your system through the standard procedure, you will soon see that there are surely no problems in your system except for poor connections.
