After using the Element Integra for a month, i've found this interconnect has managed to outperform my Chord Crimson Plus by giving a 3 dimensionality effect to my sound system where the Crimson Plus failed to do so...this finding was reconfirmed after switching over a few times between both cables where i noted the bass of the Element Integra is much better than the Crimson Plus..the above result was noted when my system was based on a single amp...now it is bi-amped, the limitations of the Crimson Plus now seems to be even more apparent where the instruments spatial imaging is not as 'floating' as the Element Integra..hence, i would say interconnects plays a more important role once we start to upgrade our hifi separates unlike previously when i used entry level equipments..
The review says the cable is ideal for a first upgrade.I need one between Arcam rPac and Roksan Kandy K2 amp, the speakers are Boston Acoustics A25 + Atlas Equator 2.0 OFC cables ( thank you, Whathifi experts team, for recommending me the Equator ).How likely is it to notice a difference? Maybe I should try Chord Crimson plus?

Superb sound quality on a budget for your analogue and digital music
There’s plenty to be impressed with this Rotel DAC, but its poor USB input holds it back
The S5 is fast, powerful and the slickest Galaxy phone yet: but it’s not the best for audio or video and doesn’t quite have that wow factor
