On Dan's recommendation I tried the new speaker cable and interconnects. I compared each of these with Dynamic Design Lotus and Empirical Design. The Soundstring was the least preferred of the three. The single ended IC's are beautifully constructed with superior connectors. All the wire is flexible and easy to work with, as is Len Miller who runs the show. However, I found the sound to be slightly less focused, coherent and musically satisfying than the DD or ED wire. With the SS wire in my system there was a slight edge--vocals at volume tended to "shout" ever so slightly. They are very high resolution, however, with good detail. I think like any cables they are rather system dependent so I would give them a try. Len has a buy and try policy so that might be a good way to see exactly how they work in your application. Given Dan and I have very similar components I was expecting to be pleased with the results but, good as they are, I went with the DD speaker wire and ED IC's at the end of the day.
