Characteristics of Linn k series cables?

I have recently tried a pair of Linn k400 cables on my system and really enjoyed their sound. I just wanted to see how others describe the sound of these. And maybe other cables that sound similar. Thanks
in anall linn system, many swear its a must...its certainly a great value cable, and you have to spend a good deal more to better it imo, but it sure is ugly, and quite difficult to work with...connections are best left to dealer soldering
