I use all Lat stuff. I have the IC-200 mark II for interconnects, the SS-1000-D speaker cables, s-video cables, DI-20 digital cables, optical digital cable, and Lat power cords. I have tried Dh labs which are just as good as the Lat but not nearly as well built. I found the Dh labs interconnects provided more detail than the Lat. But the Lat had a much smoother sound with great bass and good detail but short of the dh labs. Also the Lat seem to have a better balance between the highs and the bass. Over all I prefered it's sound. But the best bargain that I have found are the speaker cables. The are excellent. It is easy to argue the merits of one cable over another. However, when you compare the build quality of Lat it is easy to see that they are the hands downs winner. Have I heard better sounding interconnects, yes but at about triple the price of Lat. Have I heard better speaker cables any where near the price of the SS-1000-D, certainly not.
