I've just received 40 meters of the gac-4 cable from Matt via my friend, and our maintenance engineer made us a 5 meter cable for a quick comparison with Neutric NC3-XX-B connectors until he does the rest of his work on Wednesday.
I compared the new cable to my Canare cables. Gotham GAC-4 is really more quiet and really flat.
Please, keep the good work.
Thank you again for your collaboration,
I have received and installed the cables , I'm happy and satisfied from the ordering to the "listening".
I have a clear gain in term or sound level compared to my old monster cables, I should also say that the music seems to have more room/density.

The 10 foot pair of NOS GAC-3 arrived today and I am letting them settle in over the weekend. I can say this, I haven't heard bass like this in awhile. Very nice. I will let you know how things unfold. They unseated a pair of Shunyata Antares ($1995) pretty easily. Very exciting! That being said, I would like a 25 foot pair for my subs. Let me know if some are still available.
Here's another :
UNSOLICTED COMMENT FROM A CANADIAN TECHNICIAN:
I'm the technician who installed close to 3000 feet of this wire in a NEOTEK ELITE console at Coup De Foudre audio on Bleury street in Montreal, for Graeme Humfrey. I had a chance to compare it to a few very good types of cable. And price vs quality, Gotham audio's 11001 GAC-4/1 wins the race hands down! I would say, there is a boost of at lease 1 to 2 Db in the low range of the frequency and a much better definition on the overall frequency spectrum. As I was listening to an analogue 1/4 tape recording, I experienced, the sound going thru your cable had such precision, that I could hear very distinctly every instrument individually. With a normal twisted pair, with a braided shield or not, the instruments were not as distinct: a kind of very low level, but definitely there, mixture of all the instruments, maybe in the harmonics blending together!? And an important loss of Dbs in the bass frequencies... I'm sold on the quality.

Hi Gotham Cable!
My name is Wave Vidmar, you may or may not have heard of me, I was the first American to trek solo to the North Pole (among also being the former other half of IMMEDIA, RPM audiophile companies).
I'm getting ready to row solo across the North Atlantic Ocean (from USA to Europe) this summer. On my boat I will have microphones, high resolution recorder, and a full music recording studio. I'm being sponsored by companies such as Audio Technica, Fostex, and Korg.
I'm very familiar with Gotham cable. I did extensive listening tests comparing your cable against many others, some up to $1,000 per meter. The Gotham cable was the cleanest with the most natural soundstage for any cable less than $1,500 a meter/pair. I purchased several spools and have wired up my own studio as well as others, and in fact, used Gotham throughout a custom Porsche audio install. Whenever someone brings up Mogami or Canare, I tell them to use Gotham Cables - the best cable that most have never heard of.
Wave Vidmar-- Envision - Inspire - Accomplish Bernie Becker had some nice comments about Gotham cable in the Studio Showcase coming up in PSN January:
Mastering engineers often seem to have super-human hearing, and Becker is no exception, spending some time evaluating the effect of the wiring looms in his mastering suite. “I listened to 40 different kinds of wire and worked my way down to seven, then down to four. I had four full harnesses of different wires and mastered through them all. I thought for sure I’d find one clear winner. One finally won out: Gotham Audio. I love their audio wire and digital wire. And what a great guy [Gotham Audio COO] Lew Frisch is,” he comments.

Gotham Cables and me
I continually challenge Gotham's GAC-7 cable for tube mics and the GAC-3 and GAC-4/1 for phantom and line level applications against other, often better known brands. Gotham¹s premium mic cables still remain the ones to beat.”
