+1 on samhar's recommendation. I have Transparent Ref MM2 in my system. It's a wonderful cable. (if you buy new you don't have to pay the price to retune it...but I guess you pay one way or the other huh...)
You have one of the best cables anywhere...so be careful you don't step down to much here. A question...do you have Tran Ref MM MM2 version or Trans Ref MM2...their names are a bit confusing...The Ref MM MM2 is more expensive and better...
The Proteus Provecus Praesto will give you about 90% of what any cable at any price offers. I've owned that before and still have some in my system.
Congrats on the preamp! Please post your thoughts on adding it...
I´m in the same dillema testing Transparent Reference XL MM2 vx Shunaya Anaconda with ARC REF5. I was hearing Trans XL MM2 today and found the sound a bit metallic in the voices, but the bass was punchier, simply perfect as well guitar which were cleaner and better focused. I only think Anaconda were more smooth. May I know what exactly transparent are you using and price they cost brand new?
Edorr and Pabrognara,
I have had the pure listening pleasure of auditioning the ARC REF5 SE w/ Transparent Opus cable/cord(s). Grab them if you find used, otherwise you will eventually end up there. I like Transparent, as they are a natural sonic match for ARC. Additionally, I like the company's trade-up policy. Not all cable/cord companies do this for their customers. Happy Listening!
