Good morning and thanks for your responses. Yes, I am somewhat analytical, but also seek detail, warmth and sense of being in the room with the musicians. With the Mimas being a hybrid, I'm hoping to close my eyes and feel the music envelope me as I did when John Rutan demoed the Treos with the Mimas at Audio Connection in NJ. Not only was there detail and full sweep of sound, but I felt as though the music was coming from in front and around me as well. Amazing.
I will likely get the Audioquest Coffee (10% silver), but would really like the AQ Diamond (100% silver) USB cable to get all of the great musical detail. Alas, its out of my budget with the Mimas purchase.
I will post an update once I receive the Mimas, give it a break-in period and report back.
