Testimonials

What satisfied customers are saying

One of the challenges of the modern age involves trust. I know how important it is for you to trust a small company like mine. Your satisfaction is important to me, and positive reviews help my business grow and help more people enjoy their stereo. So I want you to know that I do appreciate any way you choose to leave a review. There are three ways you can leave me a review: use Trustpilot, the review tab on product page, or email to me and I will manually add. The reason I have an account with Trustpilot is to curate verified reviews that many people trust. However, they require a valid, activated reviewer account whether you sign-up via Facebook, Google, or Email address … and some people don’t want to do this. I understand not everyone wants to get on another mailing list, so it’s good for you to know you can unsubscribe from their list if you choose that route. Whatever you decide, I want you to know that I appreciate your time to write a review that will help others make the best decision for there needs.

Cardas Cables

Iridium Phono

I recently purchased Iridium PHONO cable from Matt at vintagehifinut.com It was a part of upgrade for Thorens TD-135 mk2 turntable I revamped. Prior to this purchase I used a set of custom phono RCA cables made from vintage industrial SIEMENS 1935 cable. Never was a Cardas follower before cuz did not believe in any modern cables. Always believed in the magic of true vintage: SIEMENS, good ol’ BELDEN, and others. Cardas truly surprised me. Full musical stage was right there in the room. Deep enough, very strong middle and bass. Iridium did it for me and my setup. If you wish to get familiar with Cardas line of products — do get Iridium. Yes, it is an introductory cable set. Yes, there are other so-to-say “upscale” cables in their product line. But if you are getting to know Cardas then do get Iridium. For me and for my setup this cable gave a very good understanding what to expect from Cardas in general — excellent sound quality that helps bring the best out of your setup. I do suggest to consult with Matt prior to purchasing ANY of Cardas cables just to make sure the proper cable is selected specifically FOR YOUR PARTICULAR system. IT did help me for sure – very very knowledgable and reliable professional. Do enjoy Cardas from vintagehifinut.com!!”

“This is a great deal on Cardas wire, bundled with what you need to rewire your tone arm. Props for super fast shipping these days too! More than that though, Matt has been very helpful in answering my questions as I work through repairs to a couple of vintage AR turntables. Thanks so much Matt!”
