NEW REVIEW in the works!

MonoStereo

Matej Isak with Mono Stereo magazine just received a couple of our cables for a review!

A couple of his initial comments are
"I was really impressed by the correspondency when review set of cables were being made. From the confirming the "order" and making the cables (Cyro treating etc.) I was informed by the email about each step in the process. I've been long around, but never experience such dedication to communication with customers. And satisfaction doesn't ends here."

and ..

"Call me old fashioned, but I totally dig and respect the personal touch like this. I can now totally understand the recommendations and happy customers base that Jonny already have."

NEW REVIEW!

Dagogo

Doug Schroeder, with Dagogo Magazine, recently did a full comprehensive review on our Signature Series Cottonmouth cables!

Here's a short clip,
"Once the brood of Snake River cables struck
and their venom began working its way through my system,
I was paralyzed with pleasure;
I sat all but motionless for hours, transfixed by their beauty."

RMAF 2013 Show Report ~ by Part Time Audiophile

Rocky Mountain Audio Fest 2013

"The unspoken message is that no matter who your musical idols are, this system can handle 'em. I believe it."

"The system's ability to stomp came out on Ray Wylie Hubbard's "Snake Farm," which was declared the unofficial Snake River theme song. "Snake Farm - it just sounds nasty," sings Mr. Hubbard in his Texas drawl, but there was little here that could be called nasty, except in the best way possible."

Rocky Mountain Audio Fest - Denver, Colorado

Rocky Mountain Audio Fest 2013

We had an awesome time in Denver this year!!

Our system sounded phenomenal, and the room came together so nicely! The Border Patrol amps are some of our favorites and the Baetis worked exceptionally well, like usual. No video from this show (we literally were having so much fun, we forgot!). However, we did get some pictures of the setup. Beethoven or the Beatles?

Rocky Mountain Audio Fest - Denver, Colorado

Rocky Mountain Audio Fest 2013

We will be at the Rocky Mountain Audio Fest in Denver this year!!

We will be showing in room 421 in the Atrium, directly across from the elevators. We've partnered up with Baetis Audio, Sonist Audio, and Border Patrol Amplifiers for this show (click their names to visit their webpages), and plan to have a hybrid mix of beautiful sounding tube equipment, along with high-resolution digital video and audio. Should be quite the show! Come stop in and see us!!






NEW REVIEW!

HiFi+

Jimmy Hughes, with Hi-Fi+ Magazine, recently did a full two-page review on our Signature Series Bi-Wire speaker cables and interconnects. Here's a short clip,
"For over 15 years, I've used Townshend Isolde cables, and not found anything I liked better. But these Snake River Audio Cottonmouth Signature speaker cables gave an unforced clarity and integrity my regular cables lacked; creating a sense of the music 'happening' effortlessly and coherently in a manner that sounded natural and real."

T.H.E. Show - Newport

THE Newport Show

We had two rooms at Newport Beach this year!

In our first room, we were analog and tubed. We partnered up with deHavilland Electric Amplifier Company, Sonist Audio, and Pete Riggle Audio Engineering. (Click on their names to visit their websites!) Here are some of the pictures and reports from that room.

(listening to a Tuck & Patti LP) .. "The impacts from Tuck's strumming and slaps on his hollow-bodied electric guitar strings came fast and had all the snap and harmonics of the real thing. And on the Hendrix classic "Castles Made of Sand," Patti's lush alto sounded the best I'd ever heard it."

"Well, cables is what Snake River Audio does. So naturally the whole system (including the internal wiring of the speakers) was done in a variety of Snake River products. I was so lost in the sound of the music playing; I forgot to note what we listened to. It was beautiful."

For our second room, we went digital and solid state. We partnered up with Sweet Spot Home Theaters, one of our dealers with locations in Malibu, CA and Goodyear, AZ. Sweet Spot brought their beautiful EMME Speakers, both the Gamma and Beta models, as well as Aragon/Acurus amplifiers and pre-amps. We also used a Baetis Audio music server for a source. Here are some of the pictures and reports from that room.

"With electronics from the reconstituted Aragon and Acurus, and cabling from Snake River Audio, the sound was liquid and gorgeous on acoustic jazz. I found these speakers thoroughly enjoyable with great touch and presence."

AXPONA - Chicago

Chicago Axpona

We had a great time at Axpona this year!
We showed off our BRAND NEW Boomslang digital cables,
as well as our new "Snake Pit" distribution centers
to some very captive audiences!
We partnered up with Border Patrol amplifiers, and Volti Audio
speakers, and had one of the BEST sounding rooms of the show!

RMAF 2012
Dagogo Magazine nods
by Doug Schroeder
RMAF 2012 Dagogo

Some systems bring a stunning amount of sound quality far beyond expectation. Thus was the case with the Sonist Loudspeakers, Snake River Audio, and Increcable room.

RMAF 2012 Dagogo
This affordable rig highlighted the Increcable TIA-280 Tube Amplifier ($5.5K), a loom of Snake River Audio cables ranging from the Mamushi 1M RCA Interconnects ($1,849) to the Bi-Wire Cottonmouth Speaker Cables (3M/$2,499), and the Sonist concerto 4 Loudspeaker ($5,895). Also in use were a Cary 306 Pro SACD/CD Player ($8K) and deHavilland Mercury Tube Preamplifier (est. $4.5K). Here was a system with cabling at the same price point as the speakers, but it was one of the most engaging among smaller tower speaker systems. The quality would likely be pleasing for even the most hard-core enthusiast.

Stereophile Magazine nods

RMAF 2012 Stereophile

Having heard at last Randy Bankert’s 97dB-sensitive Sonist Concerto 4 floorstanding loudspeakers ($5895) with electronics and cabling that do them justice, I understand what beautiful sound they are capable of producing. Together with Snake River Audio interconnects and speaker cable ($1100–$2449 for a 3m bi-wire pair of speaker cables), whose outer shell shimmers like a snake slithering in the sun, the Hong Kong sourced Increcable TIA-280 80Wpc integrated amplifier, and a Cary CAD-306 Pro SACD/CD player, this system produced solid bass and beautiful highs.

Capital Audiofest 2012
Enjoy the Music nods
by Part Time Audiophile - Scot Hull
CAF 2012 Enjoy the Music

Snake River Audio, out of the Snake River Valley in Idaho, was showing with Sonist and Deja Vu Audio. In fact, it was Snake River's Jonny Wilson himself that was leading the demo in the Sonist room. Here, Jonny introduced us to The Piano Guys, a piano-cello collaboration that's become a YouTube phenomenon and have recently released their first full-length album called, appropriately enough, "YouTube Hits". Another new-to-me group is The Bass Gang, a smashing collection of music from a group of four musicians and their big ass upright basses. I've ordered both discs! As for Jonny's cables themselves, well, it's just about shy of impossible to pull out a cable's contribution (or lack) to a system you're not absolutely familiar with, so I won't go there. I can say, however, that the Cottonmouth cables shown here at Capital Audiofest use a sheath that looks remarkably like, well, the skin of a snake. I like it. It's certainly eye-catching.

RMAF 2012 Dagogo
The Snake River lineup is a trio of venomous beasts, the Adder, Cottonmouth and Mamushi. Adder uses 99.999% pure silver, the Cottonmouth uses 24karat gold-plated OFC "with a minimum of 80 micro-inches of plating", and the Mamushi can use either silver or gold-plated copper but adds magnetic shielding. The top of the line Signature Series is available either unshielded (Cottonmouth) or shielded (Mamushi), but the wire used is a blend of silver, gold and copper. Pricing is available online.
