the change will definitely be more than subtle, although i can't guarantee you'll love it. cardas (esp. golden cross, from what i've been told, though i've only heard other stuff of theirs) has a very distinctive sound. tara labs sound very very different (and to my ears very much better). btw, if you live anywhere near the boston area, there's a high-end shop that carries a lot of boulder and avalon, and tara labs. you could demo it all right there. (email me if you want the info). i've never heard either of the other two brands you mention. i've never heard any transparent either, but having had MIT in my system, and now switching, i'll never touch a network box again.
