MIT EVO Three
The MIT EVO Three is one of two cables with a correction circuit. MIT applies two “boxes” in this EVO Three. Pay close attention to the direction: there is a box with ‘speaker interface’ on it. So it must be attached to the speaker… The other way around undoubtedly affects the measurements. Especially the square wave goes all wrong, we have seen.
The MIT measures – just like the Transparent – really differently. With both, the capacitance goes up. The MIT really shoots through the roof. And after 100 kHz it practically goes on tilt; that will have to do with the filter which is designed for 100 kHz.
The conductivity is “normal” shall we say. MIT does not use any special materials in the cable. The impedance, inductance and phase fall exactly in the middle of the bunch.
The resistance is lower than we thought! The MIT behaves like a fairly normal cable in the response measurement. It is remarkably similar to the Transparent and Driade, but exhibits less high loss than either cable.
You can see measurements on frequency response in the last overview of this article.
Measurements MIT EVO Three
The MIT EVO Three is the second cable with a correction circuit. And it was the fifth cable in the live test. Just after the Ricable and before the Chord Company. It’s fair to say, these kinds of cables sound different. They also measure differently, but you’ve already read that.
Martijn and Yung disagree about this cable. Yung does not like the sound balance. He writes, “Where is the bass? The midrange is too prominent.” He does hear a nice stereo image. However overall: not a nice experience.
Martijn sees it differently. He hears a similar experience to his Ricable that he has at home. He even thought that this was the Ricable. A compliment, because it is a beautiful cable. So, Martijn finds that everything is right: detail, imaging and detailing. He even talks about harmony. Not entirely surprisingly, the MIT was on his TOP-3 list as 3rd cable.
