Yet of all the points of difference, it’s the connectors used that appear to be the most significant contributor to the superior sound quality that our clients hear in their KLEI SCs. We introduced the KLEI™Classic Harmony Banana in February 2018 – this was the first banana that I’ve ever found to make a significant and repeatable improvement to the sound quality of speaker cables. The magnitude of the upgrade made when I replaced the existing gold plated bananas on the SCs we use for demonstration was compelling.
At the same time, the KLEI™QFLOW7 bi-wire jumpers proved to be equally impressive – these make for a superior alternative to running two sets of speaker cables, providing more detail and coherence. Not to mention being much tidier and often lower in cost.
Shortly afterwards, the KLEI™QPURITY8 bi-wire jumpers arrived. Suffice to say the performance is at another level again. More organic, free flowing and balanced. Visually it is obvious that while a short length of cable (100/150mm), the QPURITY8 Jumpers are a different construction, but at first glance the bananas appear to be the same. Appearances can be deceiving… John Ransley, Totally Wired 🙂
