'Twas I. MP1- and MA-2 - had PAD Dominus i/c worth about $10,000. Changed to Mogami at $100 and sounded just as good. Sold the Dominus the next day.

Thank you Spring...I researched Mogami and you know what? The canadian distributor is about a ten minute walk from my home!! I guess I have to try them out! Kind and warmest regards to all who have posted. I am grateful for all your opinions and experiences!! I will let you know how this is going to go and share my experiences...
I suggest you check out WyWires. They will be the live/playback partner with Atma and VMPS for T.H.E. Show/CES 2011 Las Vegas. I don't have Atma gear but I do have Alex's ICs (RCA). I found them to offer the most clean and clear sound without anomalies. Beat out other similarly priced cables in my system from Kimber, Harmonic Tech, and Cardas. Robert Levi recently rated them best in price class. And they are having a tour right now. See if you can get in on it. Even if not, Alex offers a 60-day trial! And act quickly to save money ... from his web site:
Through December 31, 2010, WyWires will accept a trade-in on your old cable toward a WyWires cable of the same type. Trade-in value will be between 20 to 35% of your current cable when new, depending on condition. Here's how it works...we send you the new cable, you pay us via PayPal - the 60-day trial begins. If you would like to trade in your old cable, we will rebate you the value upon review of the old cable.
I did not get to the distributor yet, but according to the Mogami website, we are talking about the Gold Studio Mic cable Model 2534. The website (www.mogamicable.com) gives the following info on this cable:
1-Wired with neglex studio quad
2-Terminated with black body 3 pin XLR connectors and gold contacts
3-lifetime warranty and available in 2,3,6,15,25, or 50 ft.
I second Rockadanny with a caveat--
Generally speaking, I prefer the older iteration of Wywires interconnects. With my Atma-sphere S-30 handling amplification duties, the v2s offer a better synergy. These are the versions that address Bob Levi's concerns and I believe these are the ones that Atma-Sphere will be wired with at T.H.E. Show.
I don't understand why Amta_Sphere would be using Wywires at T.H.E Show when he states again and again in these threads that when used together his products negate the effects of wire.
Perhaps it has more to do with the fact its Brian Cheney's room and more of a VMPS thing. Otherwise I agree it's contradicts Ralph's theory on cables used between his preamps and amps.
Perhaps it has more to do with the fact its Brian Cheney's room and more of a VMPS thing.That makes sense.
From Gopher's post, it sounded like he was discussing Atma-Sphere's room, not someone else's room that was also using Atma-Sphere components.
