I had been an Anticable user for about 3 years. Figured there had to be something significantly better sounding out there as the cable doesn't have much involved in making one. I used over 6 different cables but always came back to the Anticables in my system--they just sounded more like live. The most expensive cable I ventured into listed for about $1500. Then I tried MG Audio Planus III ribbon cables and that was the first time I heard something much better. It was a big leap in sound quality from anything prior. I also think the Amadi Maddie Signature silver cables are excellent also. You might be able to get them for a very reasonable cost still. I have VMPS RM 40 speakers that are very revealing along with a Modwright 5400 cd/sacd, a tweaked out Lenco turntable with Origin Live arm and Soundsmith Shelter 501 Mk II, Edge amp, and Audible Illusions 3A pre. All ICs are Darwin Silver, Ascension, and Ascension Plus. The Reference 3 Antis are a little better in the bass than the standard antis--not much of a step up. The difference between the Antis and either cable I mentioned is major in my book.
