The Forte encompasses the design priorities of Evidence Audio which are to eliminate the negative effects of strand interaction, skin effect, inferior material qualities and geometry. It is crafted and sounds quite like the Lyric, however by putting a coating on the strands instead of using single solid IGL conductors, the Forte is flexible and rugged making it ideal for stage use.
The Monorail cable is true to the voicing priorities of Evidence Audio in a form factor which allows you to get great sound in small spaces. Strand interaction is mitigated with the same 20 awg IGL conductor used in the Lyric, Siren and Melody cables. The Monorail can be soldered with a variety of phone plugs, or used with the SIS Screw In Solderless plugs.
