Vivid Audio V 1.5 - John Marks review in "The Fifth Element"

As a prospective owner of a pair of these, I was very interested in seeing that the V 1.5 were reviewed so favorably by JM and that they are the best speaker he's heard under $10K as well as a Class A - Restricted LF choice.

That said, there are only a couple of paragraphs about the performance of the speakers prior to JM adding $8.5K worth of interconnects and speaker cables to his system -- which is more than the retail price of the V 1.5s!

It seems that most of the review was based upon the speaker's performance after the addition of these cables.

Question to JM -- are your opinions about this speaker based upon the performance of the speaker itself or in combination with the cables?

Thanks.
