Audio Research Interconnects and Speaker Cables?

Does anyone have experience with Audio Research cables and interconnects? If so, what are your thoughts and what have you compared them to?

I tried Audio Rsearch cables a long time ago when I was using thier preamps and found them to be pretty descent but ended up going in other directions. I do feel there are better values elsewhere.Specially today with the Reality cables and Anti cables low cost lines of cables. Of coarse its all up to how deep your pockets are .
