The Lyric HG is best suited for studio applications or home use. Where the cable will be used live or subject to the rigors of touring, the Forte would be a sonic equivalent using IGL-ECS conductors in place of the IGL solid core conductors.
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.
