I'm using Amazons and Cardas Golden Cross in two different systems. My impression of the Amazons is they're clear and fast. The Golden Cross is quiet and a little darker than the Amazons, without losing any delicacy. I haven't had any extended exposure to Nordost, Audionote, and Transparent. I tried a mid-priced Monster interconnect for a while, but I was disappointed. Although it sounded smooth and even in frequency response, it seemed dynamically compressed and made the music sound relatively lifeless.
I am using AQ KE-4 and Diamond Extreme, which are supposed to be very similar metals to Everest and Amazon.. They are very fast and detailed. I had some of the Nordost SPM reference, and whatever their megabuck cable is (valhalla?) and they were also nice. I chose the AQ because the price was so much better since I found AQ cables used. Nordost was very nice if you have the $$
