I use GRs and have heard them on a friends system and later heard some SR he bought on it. Very different, the SR much farther forward and brighter in balance with less bass. It was impressive but tiring after a while. He has replaced it with a higher grade of SR which he likes better but I haven't heard it yet. Since I personally find the Maggies usually a little bright for my taste I would go with the GR but you may feel different. These are very different [and expensive] cables so if you can try some I would go that way. There really ought to be a means of listing members willing to take their equipment over to others houses or having them over for a visit. There are several of us in Louisville who do this and it saves buying something that doesn't work in a system. The sound of speaker cables varies considerably with the amp and speaker used.
