Audio Metallurgy GA-0 interconnects


Has anyone tried the Audio Metallurgy GA-0 interconnects, or any of their products, for that matter? I see them often in the "no-reserve" auction on Agon, and they tend to go for about $150. I'm wondering what experiences/comparisons people might have made.

I just sold a 1.5M and .5M set and have 1 more .5M set left for sale. The only reason I am selling is due to a new rack configuration, so I am buying 5 new sets with different lengths. These IC's sound better than anything I've ever heard at a reasonable price. They sell them in auctions to keep the price of advertizing down, nice people to deal with, but sometimes it takes 4-7 weeks for an order. My .5M are like new for someone that likes to keep connections as short as possible. Be careful not to kink them, they also have locking rca's which is nice, but just don't tighten them too much. I can't wait to get my new sets. Happy listening.
They are a very good value. They are however somewhat fragile in comparison to some other manufacturers cables, something that Audio Metallurgy openly admits to on their website. Really though as long as you are careful and don't plan on putting them in and out of your system frequently there should be no problem.
Agree with both previous threads. They're definitely a very good value and sound just as good or better than IC's costing considerably more.
In my system they bested cardas golden reference,harmonic technology magic link and acoustic zen matrix reference.
I have  had all  GA-0s for a number of years and love them.   Sound stage improvements  along with sound clarity  are excellent  as compared to  Cardas gold & MIT terminators in my all micintosh system. I just tried the Ag-0 for the ICs between my amps and preamp. To my ear  I hear  an improvement in "sweetness" of the sound if one can call it that. In doing the exchange of the ICs I broke one of the connectors and  have been trying to contact audio metallurgy for repair but have had no answer or reply. Anyone have the same problem. I wonder if they are closed down or just on vacation? anyone have a similar experience?
I have mainly Purist cables in my system but the cable from my source to pre is the GA-o.  I think it adds quite a bit to the soundstage and is just a good all around cable.  You do need to be careful with it though.  No kinks or hard bends.
Good information here.  Looking forward to a demo with these cables soon.
