I had the AZ Hologram II's and I found that the Absolute cables are better on every level. Bass response is solid, mid's and high's are tight with fantastic detail, but not overly bright. I have had these cables in my system for just over a year now and I feel no urge to change them out. They replaced a pair of Silver Audio Symphony 48's which were very nice cables, but the AZ's in my system sounded more open and more full. A lot of this is really system dependent. What I find with these cables is that they do not lie! Whatever is happening upstream you are going to hear. I am also using Absolute interconnects. I have seen some AZ Absolute speaker cables for sale here every once and awhile so you could always try a pair and see---------Good luck!!
