    Wireworld Terra-6 RCA Vs. Wireworld Oasis-6 RCA cables - Cheez's Review




    Was using a pair of Wireworld Terra-6 RCA cables previously.

    Got the Wireworld Oasis-6 RCA cables (1m - $109) about a month ago.

    At first try, Wow. The soundstage is wider to boot. Didn't seem to increase depth of the soundstage over the Terra-6 (2m - $25), but it's definitely "wider". Even bigger difference was the loudness. It's just plain louder (bigger) with more energy than the Terra-6.

    It's also a bit crisper, with more sparks in the treble when the songs demand. Overall the sound is full bodied and a bit warm. Less edgy, bit more silky up top. Great dynamics - Low end has plenty punch, and the highs go up well without rolling off.

    There was a little increase in detail, one or more instruments that come at you in different way.

    Transparency and bass definition (articulation) however isn't stellar. Although the transparency in Oasis-6 is better than that of the Terra-6, it wasn't anything like a ground breaking. Bass is also better, but it wasn't hard / super fast as I hoped. Maybe I'm expecting too much from a $109 pair cable. But still, very good for the money.

    And it doesn't seem to need much burn-in / settle-in either. It sounded good right off the bat, brand new cables.


    Highly recommended!



    P.s. the Terra-6 sounds good too, but it distorts easily especially at highs. When a lot of high frequencies are played by the instruments it tends to congest. Oasis-6 removes this congestion. Music also has less energy and volume, not bad by any means, it's just that the Oasis-6 excels in this regard.

    Spec:

    Construction: DNA™ Helix
    Conductor type: Oxygen-free copper
    Insulation: Composilex™
    Plug contacts: Silver-clad oxygen-free copper
    Connectors: Silver Tube™
    Available lengths: 0.5m & 1.0m, other lengths to order
    Available terminations: RCA or XLR


    p.s. my speakers is Focal CMS65 monitors and Asus Xonar DX7.1 sound card.

    Unless you can provide actual measurements, your perceptions dont mean much. Anyone can convince themselves that a brand new piece of hardware is leaps and bounds better than what they had before, regardless of whether it really is or not.
    Rig 1:
    ASUS P8Z77-V
    Intel i5 3570K @ 4.75GHz
    16GB of Team Xtreme DDR-2666 RAM (11-13-13-35-2T)
    Nvidia GTX 670 4GB SLI

    Rig 2:
    Asus Sabertooth 990FX
    AMD FX-8350 @ 5.6GHz
    16GB of Mushkin DDR-1866 RAM (8-9-8-26-1T)
    AMD 6950 with 6970 bios flash

    Yamakasi Catleap 2B overclocked to 120Hz refresh rate

    Measurements for sound out of speakers are difficult to obtain. IIRC, the technology hasn't caught up yet. For now, we can rely on our cute ears.

    So your saying that although we created this technology through science and mathematics, that science and mathematics cant explain the difference in sound waves between the cables? And if the difference cant be explained, how can this product actually be produced? How does the company know it makes the right cable since they cant understand the materials used to construct it being any different from other materials?

    I am sure they have equipment to test their own products to some degree. But measuring how it sounds out of the speakers is really difficult. I am afraid it's more complicated than you would think.... it's not like running 3dmark benchmark for "scores".

    You guys should be thankful I am giving out reviews of audio components. You now have the opportunity to learn about what cables can do for you.

    I am pretty impressed with the Wireworld Oasis-6 RCA cables.. They give you plenty of sparks, wider soundstage, and a bit silky removing some congestion. The Terra-6 gave plenty air, but it starts to lose cleanness in the busy high frequency spectrum... start to distort a bit. It's a $25 cable for 2m long. You get what you pay for.

    I'm sorry but I think I have to end this. What you're posting is just too sad and ignorant for me to let continue... at first I was kind of smiling, but really, you've played it too far.

    I haven't made up my mind yet whether your are a shill or are just plain delusional.........or even just a little naive ???

    I can prove (scientifically ) in a blind test that there would be no difference in the sound stage/depth/loudness/pitch/whatever using either Wireworld Oasis-6 RCA cables (@ $109/M ) or 2 super deluxe steel wire coat hangers (@ .10 cents each)

    I too don't know if this is shilling, delusion or trolling...

    In case you're serious (and I'm sure I'm just rehashing what's been said, so, sorry);

    There are two ways to measure the performance of the cables. First is you just measure how a signal is changed when passing through the cable. Just an electric signal. Could be music, could be swept sine wave. Whatever. Measure output, compare to input. Second is you play for example noise, or again a swept sine wave from a source, record using a measurement microphone at a fixed position from the speakers, swap cables, do it again, compare measurements.

    The way to "measure yourself" is to do a double blind test. For example; take one source, send to one speaker, take one buddy, have him take care of the "random" selection of cable. He will tell you "this is the first pass" without you know which cable it is, you listen, write down your opinions. He will then either swap cables OR NOT swap cables and tell you "this is the second pass", play back the exact same piece of sound, you write down your opinions and so on. So what you hear may be cable A, A, B, A, B, B, A, B, B, B... whatever. You don't know in advance which one you're listening to. The first thing you should be able to do is recognize that there is a difference to begin with. The second thing is say which is which, i.e. a=cheap cable, b=expensive.

    In case you're serious, this is exactly where people fail, repeatedly. And in case anyone wonders, this happens to us professional audio engineers all the time, because we're human. Our bias affect our feelings. It's just how humans work.

    But surely the thread ain't serious, right?

    I gotta say.

    I bought a brand new nVidia GTX680 the other day and it is leaps and bounds better at handling Doom 2 than my previous GTX 260. I saw n increase in framerates from 270 to 410 never has the game played this smoothly

    ^ I still enjoy playing Quake 3 with my system. It plays really fast. Having no lag and having full control is important.

    I like these cables a lot. They look pretty too. I kiss them. Kiss Kiss.

    ^ Nearfield speakers are good for accuracy and detail. I enjoy them a lot. Speakers for party I don't appreciate much... as they generally lack area I mentioned earlier, but with plenty of loudness. Of course, it still depends on what you get...

    LOL, What kind of completely idiotic moron puts a Subwoofer in a closed off cabinet. Talk about stupidity at its best.

    I think this persons post sums up NobCheeze perfectly.

    So you are telling us that you can tell the cable makes a big difference yet you don't know that placing a sub inside of a cabinet is an acoustically bad idea?

    Different RCA cables can make a difference but only if you were really using crappy connections to begin with or there was a problem with the setup, either way the perception of two different but still high quality cables would be too small to blind test imo (assuming very short lengths ). We would be getting into the arguments of High quality standard copper cables vs strand insulated, time aligned, reactance controlled, magnetic flux tubed cables, which would be hard pressed to tell the difference at least on low or even mid fi equipment.
    One thing that would be worth doing is using that XLR connection, that's something all can agree on makes a difference.
