Morrow Audio MA3 RCA cable:
I'll start off by saying that these are by far the most money I've spent on a cable and am still burning them in... It has been a few days now and I've had my system running almost day and night...
As for the sound... wow. Honestly switching between these and the other 2 cables (Amazon Basics & AudioQuest G Snake) is a big enough difference that I will likely be purchasing a few more pair soon. I honestly didn't think they would make a big difference, yet they have.
The Morrow cables sound so natural. Everything sounds so controlled and percise. They have fantastic transient response and have excellent dynamics. The way it helps paint the picture of your music is truly beautiful. They help you hear the little nuances and details in your music that you may have otherwise missed. I can here more of the details in the tracks I am listening to. With the other cables, the details would be covered up by a slightly muddied sound...
Michael S - I am really going to enjoy these cables!
The SP4 speaker cables arrived yesterday our time and I put them into the system yesterday evening to start listening and running them in, straight out of the Morrow felt bag they sounded better than what I was using (Graham Slee Spatia), as the evening went on they were getting better and better, I know there is a long way to go with the running in until they perform their best but these SP4 have much more of everything, detail, midrange projection, a bottomless pit bass that is tight and very fast, the biggest thing I notice though is how they make musical instruments sound so much more natural, much better timbre. I was reluctant to turn the system off and go to bed.
I Promptly fired it up again this morning and was playing a later Neil Diamond album and his voice and the big rich sound of the piano plus the words to the song almost made me cry, the emotion that was conveyed was amazing! Every time I use a Morrow cable in my system it just gets better and better. I am really going to enjoy these cables, thanks so much to the team at Morrow and the amazing products they make so we can enjoy the music once again!
Ian N: Not a huge amount of difference compared to a $16,000.00 cable...
Let me start with the MA4 interconnect ($329.00), mainly because I was in a position to make an unfair comparison as I had been fortunate enough to borrow 2 pairs of very expensive interconnects. Cardas Clear Reflection ($1450.00) and Nordost Odin ($16,000.00). I'm not going to pretend that the $329 Morrow cable was as good as these cables, but there wasn't a huge amount of difference, especially given the price differential. The Odin was the stand out, and obviously the top of the line ($2995 Elite or $4995 Anniversary) Morrow cables would have been a better comparison. However for value for money the MA4 would be difficult to beat!
I'm now in my third month with my SP5s, and yes they live up to all of the claims that are made about them. Yes they increased the ability of my amp to control my speakers, and improve my bass response three ways. First they appear to have added another octave of bass. Second, they increase the resolution of the pitch in bass notes. Third, they increase texture, attack and decay of bass notes. Then, they separate and delineate each instrument throughout the frequency spectrum. All while adding soundstage depth and width. The sound of immediacy is astounding and presence addicting. Buying these cables has transformed my system enough that I have replaced all of my interconnects and speaker cables with Morrow Audio cables. What I really found amazing is finding out what stranded cable distortions sound like. Now that I know what it sounds like, I hear it everywhere, and am thankful that I have rid my audio system from them.
Airiness and beautiful lightened sound... among the very best in terms of harmonic richness! Astonishing soundstage image definition as well!
There is some equipment that makes us forget the high-end and all of its ideosyncrasies. When the music flows naturally, we fail to pay attention to what happens to the low, mid and high frequencies, depth of the soundstage , etc., etc.... all of those concerns disappear from our thoughts, as if by magic. Morrow cables belong to this very restricted group of audio equipment, which puts the listener in direct connection to the music, in all its glory! We do not just hear the performers playing, but also the emotion and the excitement with which they do it!
The truth is that these cables (MA5 and SP5 sets) replaced an old cable set that cost twice the price of the Morrows!
I take my hat off to these cables, above all to their intrinsic musicality, which is the most important thing and the ultimate cause of the high fidelity raison d'être.
Congratulations to Mike Morrow and all of his team!
I am listening to a SACD of Mozart Violin Concertos. I enjoy listening to music much more now than before I discovered Morrow. I saw a pair of MA1s on ebay and decided to try them.. I was quite pleased with them and thought if Ma1 sounded this good what must the higher cables sound like. I went to MA3 and I was blown away. I t was if a veil had been removed. Music was clear and instruments sounded real. The upgrade bug was tempting me. I wanted a better amp. It sounded great and I knew Morrow speaker cables must sound great and the sp4 were amazing. It was like I got a subwoofer . Then I got the MA4. Sound was mind blowing and I like strings and the 4 enabled me to really hear them. I had been lusting after the Sony SCD-1 since it first came out in 2001 and it was going for 600.00 I got it. It was unbelievable. And of course the Sony deserved Morrow so I got the MAP3 power cable.
I don’t get listener fatigue anymore and listen to it every night. I am sure I would have to spend a lot of money to get better sound.
Mike, I have invested a lot of money since I discovered Morrow, but I am in 7th heaven and am listening to my Chamber music hours at a time.
I purchased your cables on a whim, hadn't made an audio investment in a while. I had purchased a new streamer and was running it off an old cable I had laying around since I was now short a quality cable. I wasn't really expecting to hear much of a difference, however, you were running a good sale on used cables (MA4). My other cable, a Merlin Verdi, is a much higher cost cable that I also got a good deal on. Got yours, swapped it with the Merlin and moved the Merlin to my SACD. Long story short, there was a significant audible improvement going to your cable, I honestly didn't think a cable would make that much a difference. Even had a friend over and it was immediately noticeable to him also.
Now I did get a used one so there was no wrestling with break-in.
Count me among the group of very satisfied.
Having had your MA4 interconnect cable for over a month now, i've been very impressed by it's performance. I wasn't really expecting it to sound so good! And i've not finished running it in yet. I've tried many cables and interconnects over the years with mixed results, usually pretty mediocre, but i must say it was a pleasant surprise when i installed your cable. The sound is much more open and extended revealing far more detail. Based on this, i hope to purchase some 'speaker cable and digital interconnect in the near future, hopefully with a bit of luck, i might win your $1000 draw to pay for it!
I've ordered MA4 interconnects and DIG4 digital cables to supplement my Nordost pair. Had them run overnight to start the break-in process. WOW! I've heard that these are good but the've exceeded all my expectations. Soundstage, 3D realism - to the point that you can almost "touch" the music. Thank you!
I just wanted to give all of you my take on Morrow Cables. I have been using them for quite a few months now. Starting with a Great Deal on their low cost MA1 RCA Interconnect, I thought I would give their technology a try. I come from a backround in Audio Research and Development for my own personal gain and for Clients that want to get to the next level in Sound Systems. Wiring between components like RCAs and XLRs and Speaker Cables are no joke. There are just as important as the components themselves. I have worked with major Audio Salons out of the New York City Area on the New Jersey side, and also in the San Diego Area of California in person with the finest of Audio Equipment on the Planet at that time. And the equalizer has always been good Cables between each Component.
Let's get onto Mike Morrow and his wonderful Cable designs. Small Solid Core Wire. Sounds so simple, doesn't it? But it is a tedious task, and takes a long time to do it right. I have tested Solid Core Copper Wire before myself and have gotten very good results with it. But not in the small size that the Morrow Audio Cables are using. This is quite a good step in the right direction for opening up the sound of a Music Track without distorting it.
Well, lo and behold, Morrow Audio Cables do just that. They are so good at opening up a door that has been only open just slightly. And the full Music Track will shine thru your System like it was meant to. The 1st set of better quality MA4 Reference Cables (RCA 24 Runs of SSI Wire) was quite the party with me. I have a Reference System that consists of some of the finest equipment this side of the Planet. I can tell small differences now with components, now that Morrow Audio MA4 Reference Cables are coming from my Preamp to my Amplifier, and from my DAC and my CD Transport, and my USB Bridge also. I have moved up to XLRs between my Krell Amp and my fancy pants Preamp that puts out JFET, Tube or Straight Signal into the Krell Amp. Wow!!. Pure silence, and open door with the sound coming into full bloom.
I could tell you more about Morrow Audio Cables and it would make for a Short Story. I am very, very happy that my R&D has come across this Technology and Mike Morrow and his Team is so nice as well. And the Money Back Guarantee is just a great thing that makes you feel better buying his cables. I give a "Totally Recommended" rating to this Company and to it's technology. This is coming from someone that has been in the know for over 45 years and in the trenches of the finest Audio Equipment.
Life without Music, is like Life without Air to me. Now go pick which ones you want. And enjoy the Music.
I purchased the MA4 interconnects and they are fantastic. Right out of the package they improved my listening experience even though they were not broke in. I wish I had more hours on them but I enjoy each time I listen to my system because it gets better each time. My best friend Mark Bruce suggested your company to me he has bought interconnects and speaker cables from you. I replace my Kimber PBJ's that I had in my system for many years. I am very happy with the improvement in my sound quality the MA4's give me. Hopefully sometime early next year I can get another pair of the MA4's and maybe even some speaker cable.
Thanks from a very satisfied customer!
Mike, I am still breaking in the RCA and XLR cables I ordered. I will wait until these are fully burned in. At some point I may consider a bi-wire speaker cable pair. Currently using a Wireworld Equinox 7 with bi-wire jumpers I purchased about 8-9 months ago.
I will say already the soundstage and detail is about 25 % better than the Kimber Kable Hero's I was running ( XLR ) and Wireworld Equinox 7 ( RCA ) in which I replaced with the MA 4 series.
Thank you Warner for your follow up email about the Morrow cables I purchased. I did a lot of research first before buying, reading online reviews and customer reviews. I've been in audio for about 45 years going back to my late high school days. A lot of gear has passed through my hands during that time. Mainly hardware with little thought of cables until Monster and their Interlink Reference and Powerline 2 speaker cables came out. Many cables and interconnects have been in and out of my system. Ones with "boxes", proprietary wire, solid core, multi-strand, etc.. I finally settled on just "decent" cables. Yes, zip cord for speakers and decent made interconnects, which served me well, and finally, didn't cost me a lot of money.
That is until I bought the MA3's and SP4. I didn't have to wait months to hear a difference. It was apparent and as soon as I started listening. Sort of like "wow.. I have been missing something!".
Long story short, I am very pleased with them and have no thoughts of removing them from my system. The 3 payment plan is great. You really can not beat the 60day home trial. It didn't take me that long to hear the difference. Thanks for a great product, reasonably priced so that even someone retired can afford it!

I recently attended the Newport THE show, where I casually ran across Morrow Audio via the raffle and the Legacy room, where I remember hearing a very pleasing sound being presented. At the time, I was on the hunt for an all tube integrated amplifier to possibly replace my newly acquired hybrid integrated,which I bought without auditioning based on the favorable reviews that I had read, plus listening to other products in the manufacture''s line.You see, I wasn''t completely happy with the sound I was getting from the amp,and as this was my first jump into the 2-channel audio arena,I was searching for solutions and alternatives available, not thinking that cables could make the kind of difference I was looking for. By chance, I spoke with a audio representative who is a dealer for my amp, and is also a rep for your competition.I told him of my problem, he told me that with the quality of my amp and speakers I should be experiencing great sound, and it could be achieved with the proper cables.''Hmmmmm'' I thought, maybe there is a cheaper solution at hand than the hassle of driving all over creation to dealers to home audition all-tubed amps, as I had planned on doing (to the tune of 600 miles+).
So I started doing some research.I referred to Robert Harley''s ''The Complete Guide to High -End Audio'' , where he talks about the skin effect, and how it can be nullified via cables that utilize litz construction. Then I ran across your ad in the show program, and saw that your cables use solid core wires.Now my interest is rising. On to your website, where I read about the potential of having game-changing sound, only to be followed by reading scores of reviews by people like me telling others of the great results they are experiencing with your product.A phone call to you confirms what my research and first impressions from the show had told me - this is a company that appears to be rock solid and genuine, and is not selling costly voodoo snake oil but affordable products that many people are excited about and that truly believe in.
My MA4''s arrived last Monday and I can''t tell you how much of a difference they have made in the sound quality of my system. I am now enjoying the sound (to varying degrees,from mild to wild, depending on the quality of the cd''s recording) - and can appreciate all the attributes that I had read about in my amp''s reviews, but could not hear in my living room.
Thank you for a wonderful product - as I have a SACD player, I will be calling you for recommendations for the 3 pairs of cables that I now want to replace as well.
For all those out there who are doubtful of a cables'' affect on your systems'' sound, with Mike''s money back guaranty, you have nothing to lose, and only audio bliss to gain. Try these cables- I''m certainly glad I did. Highly recommended - Craig
I have held off replying as the cables have been going through that settling in phase for about a month (on and off). I wanted to wait until they were a bit more settled before writing back. If you post my comments to your site, here's another testimony to the reality of cable break in. IT IS REAL. Clearly audible. Without a doubt there were major shifts and changes as my cables settled in. They have been pretty smooth, clear, stable, and with solid imagery for about a week and a bit now.
The sound is very very good. I have a fairly high resolution set up and these cables have really come into their own. The sound is extremely well balanced. A great mix of clarity, punch, warmth, good highs, and very good and defined bass. In fact the last change in the cables was the bass moving from present and strong, to becoming more articulate whilst retaining punch.
Your Morrow Cables have been the best I have used and have really allowed my system to shine. I have been going back a re-listening to albums I haven't heard since the changes. Albums I know well and the presentation is just great. Cohesive, detailed but not harsh or trebly, and engaging. I find myself sitting in the "sweet spot" and a whole side to an album plays through and I am totally immersed in just listening. Listening and smiling... smiling a lot.
I am very happy with the cables to say the least.
Plus, I want to say, I have been just as happy with your communication, assistance and customer care. Mike you have answered my questions and been very prompt and helpful. It's great to see that in a business. I must also add that I would like to say how pleasant and professional April Pinkelton has been too. As you are her manager/boss I would like to let you know she has done her job very well. Great customer relations/care.
Thank you again for providing great cables, at great value, and for understanding those of us that just love our music and want to get the most from that experience.
I wanted to take this time, to send you a message here. I belong to a VERY LARGE audio club here in Knoxville, TN. RA was telling GM about your cables. GM bought a pair, but alas, they were too short for what he had in mind. A few days later, the captain came by, and he gave to Capt. the cables to bring to me, for me to borrow. They hung up along with a myriad of other cables, well, because I already had plenty of good cables on hand. "Yeah, Yeah, I'll get to those here in a few days". I started listening the night before last. G said they already had several hours break-in, but not enough. Crazy CRAZY crazy. sure enough, the cables changed character just while I was listening to them, over the course of the last 2 evenings. WOWW, just like you claim in the white paper !!
I have got to make a long story short, because I don't type so fast. Please see below the line for the recent message sent out to the fellas:
Re: Follow-up/ Morrow Cables
After further intense, and SERIOUS listening last night. I stand behind the MA-1's 1000% After discussing the details with G, it turns out that his, are Standard MA-1's. At this point, I see no reason to order any other of the upgrades. Of course, I reserve the right to change my viewpoint/and is subject to change over time.
I printed out the SSI Technology white paper, from his web site, and absorbed it all like a sponge does to water.
EERIE goosebumps as he had described on paper, exactly what was in store for my listening experience. Mike Morrow must have one hell of a system. I'll have to look into it.
Mike Morrow must have one hell of a system. I'll have to look into it.
I just did, it's behind you in the introduction video. Based on large round horns for the mid-range. No kidding, that's how I do it as well. Even the same colour red. No wonder.
But, here's the thing. I know a LOT of audiophiles. I mean a LOT. Once the word gets out, you might expect an increase in business. Some of the guys I know, are also in the cable business. I'll try and be gentle with them.
Next, I'm going to order a pair for Capt. S, and then another longer set for me, to go from my source section, over to the active crossover section. Eventually, I'll change all cables to Morrow. (Amazing, just like you said in the video).
What else can I say? I Am impressed, and I don't impress very easily.
I would like to take this opportunity to tell you how musically and emotionally satisfying your cables are. They possess true magic, naturalness, presence, realism and gorgeous color.
I love the new cables. From experience with other Morrow cables, I broke them in for 100 hours using a burn in track before inserting them in my system. As advertised, they increased the detail and micro-dynamics, as well as better bass control.
Hi Mike, I just wanted to share my experience with your MAP4 power cords. I received my 2 power cords with 10 days of burn in . I placed them on my Preamp and Power amp as per your recommendation. I turned on my system and gave them an additional 2 days to settle in before doing any critical listening . I was amazed at the increase in sound quality . The soundstage grew substantially across the frequency range . The music is smoother and more liquid than ever . Now when you consider your power cords replaced Silnote cords that were between my Richard Gray Power Center and my equipment , receiving that much improvement is nothing short of phenomenal ! What a perfect compliment to my Morrow MA5 Interconnects and my Morrow SP5 Speaker Cables . This has been an absolutely fantastic experience!
Having had a good listen to the MA4 interconnects reveals they are much better overall compared to the MA2 cables and this is well before they run in, the sound is just bigger with a little more of everything, I guess it is the old saying, you get what you pay for and usually the better the quality of cable the more expensive it is to purchase but the results are certainly worth it!
Will be posting back the trade-in MA2 cables very soon, will keep you posted (so to speak!!)
Kind regards from a very happy customer!
Just letting you know that the speaker cables have arrived (SP4s with 2 day burn in).
I installed them last night and had a quick listen.
I know it¹s early stages yet, but I certainly agree with the vast majority of descriptions from your happy customers. Detail, imaging, and musicality are all very impressive. The cables have made quite a substantial positive change to my system.
I¹m very happy with the SP4s; and I am looking forward to the MA4s arriving too.
I will send you a more detailed feedback/review once all the cables have settled into my system.
All the best and thanks for making a great product.
I would highly recommend these cables to anyone.
Hope you're doing well, here's my review of the SP3 Speaker wires.
To be honest I've tried some local high grade cables and an import too, however I've never heard anything like the SP3, they are absolutely a class apart. I would always get a sharp and muddy sound from the speaker mids from the other cables and since I have some high end speakers always wondered why, well this was taken care of as I installed the SP3. It sends out the perfect balance of sound, the way it was meant to be, and I'd recommend it to anyone looking to get reference grade speaker wires. Thanks once again..You're Brilliant.
Mike , I just received my SP5 speaker cables today . They are absolutely fabulous! I recently replaced my Anti-Cables Level 3 Interconnects with Morrow MA5’s . Even with a 13 day burn in period they required an additional 150 hours before they began to blossom . So in order to complete my system, I replaced my Anti-Cable Level 3 speaker cables with the New Production SP5’s . So with 10 Days of burn in , I installed them today and started to listen . They are worlds above of the Anti-Cables. The depth of imaging has increased substantially. Clarity and detail has improved across the entire frequency range . Also it has been a pleasant surprise that they are extremely liquid and exhibit this much smoothness so early . If they didn’t improve, I would be satisfied. But I know that they are going be be substantially better . And for that , I am truly excited . I’m a satisfied returning customer . Respectfully, Mike
Hi Mike I have had my stereo running for 7 straight days now with the new cables! each time I sit down to listen I am in awe - it seems like a veil has been lifted! every instrument is there and nicely balanced in the big sound stage bass is taught and deeper - mids, highs and details just fantastic! Nope, these cables are staying with me! (SP6 Speaker Cables)
The difference - already - with the SP6 speaker cable is remarkable! My best regards, Jon M
Hope all is going well with your move to the new building. Always lots of details...
And detail is what I am getting with those wonderful MA-6 20 foot XLR interconnects and SP6 speaker cables I got from you last November. In addition to the detail I gained just a slight touch of warmth, a drop of honey if you will, to the overall sound. My preamp is a Bel Canto Pre6 which is as neutral as it gets and my speakers, VMPS RM30 Series 2, are ribbon mids and tweets and run very clean. Bryston 28 bsst2 are mono blocks (they also add a drop of honey). So a slight sweetening is desirable. It sounds very, very nice. Another session last night ran into the wee hours. These replaced Blue Jeans XLR terminated ICs that I felt did a credible job. But the cable change was a significant upgrade. No noise at all with your MA-6.
The rest of the system is Well Tempered Amadeus TT, Grado Reference Master MI cart and Hagerman Cornet2 Phono that i built and use Amperex NOS 12AX7/12AU7 tubes.
WOW! Thank you so much for making it happen for me.
And some day in the not too distant future I want to move up to the PH-6 and the MA-6 from phono pre to the Bel Canto. I have your 4 series cables there now.
Gday Mike, Its Victor from Sydney, Australia reporting back on the SP6 speaker cables. I have run them in for around 75 hours on my upstairs bedroom setup and only today put them into my main system downstairs. I must say the sound emanating from my speakers sounds more alive and detailed compared to my previous speaker cables. The bass seems to delve down another octave and is tightly controlled! I am now eager to receive the MA6 interconnects I have ordered from you.
"I wanted to take a minute to provide some feedback concerning your MA6 Interconnects, SP6 Speaker Cables, and your MAP3 Reference Power Cords. All of these models have greatly enhanced my audio system. I was using top of the line and high cost Nordost and Kimber products before and after replacing them with your products, I can say that the quality and performance of sound across the spectrum was definitely elevated. I describe the sound as simply elegant. Your products are reasonably priced; I would say a bang for the buck, just what is needed in the audio world today. Highly recommended." Kevin - Louisville
Hey Mike! "Got my NEW SP-6''s last week and after another few hours of break in, ''I CAN NOT BELIEVE MY EARS!'' Wow - really really NICE!. Thank You!... I can''t wait to order 2 pair of IC''s (MA-6''s)....I want the matching IC''s ASAP! Thanks!" Tod Tucker
"I have been mixing live sound close to 20 years as well as gone through many sound systems over the past 35 years. I have wasted away a lot of money trying to achieve the sound as if one was playing an instrument live. These cables do just that! They don't add any coloration to the music. You feel & hear the real soul of the instruments and vocals. I have had other sound engineers in my home to listen to these cables. Their mouths would drop open & thay would have big smiles on their faces! Save your money. Buy these cables!" Garry
"I have the SP-6's on the high part of my bi-wiring. They are, the best cables I've owned, and that includes Straight Wire. Speltz anti-cable and the Soundstring Audio cable. This cable even out did the SP-3 bi-wired cable, which I traded up for this one. The SP6 has all around better resolution, clarity, soundstage, tone and pitch definition, not to mention focus. I would not fail to recommend these cables to anyone, including the company and Mike Morrow. He offers you great cables at very good prices, with very flexible and fair trade- up and trade-in policies, not to mention discounts. Sincerely, Fredric N".
"What a fantastic cable. I have been happy with the Chords but I wanted to replace them with another leading brand that would have cost in excess of $6,000. Then quite by accident I came across Morrow Audio. Its not just the product and the competetive price, its Mike''s attitude. Nothing is too much trouble. He treated me like a friend and I am 6,000 miles from him." Bob Smallcorn, Australia
