I recently had the opportunity to audition the NBS statement, Monitor O series, FIM gold series & Valhalla speaker cables. The process took me approx. 3 weeks listening for a full day on each occasion, all cables were broken-in. The Valhalla was the best in my system, however, the FIM gold series was closely behind in second followed by the Monitor and then Statement series cables. I chose the FIM Gold Series, basically on price and what I could afford, about half off retail, the soundstage both depth and width, dynamics, resolution and separation is what sold me on the FIM, the cost factor also helped make my decision, my quest is over, I hope for at least awhile. Good luck.
