Hi I've been using both the BL-1 Series II and Air Matrix interconnects for several months now in various parts of 3 different systems, side by side with my other "boutique" and much more expensive cables and think they perform very, very well--esp. for the price! Recently I acquired a custom-assembled biwire set of their new Q-10 speaker cables and although I did not like them as well as my Transparent Ultra XL speaker cables on my upstairs system (ARC CA-50 tube integrated, Electrocompaniet EMC-1 CD player, and Proac Response 1SC minimonitors w/REL Storm III sub), they sounded as good as the Transparent Reference cables I use on my downstairs, much bigger system (ARC VT100 Mk III, BAT VK30SE preamp, Marantz SA-1 SACD player, Genesis 500 speakers). I don't know why they sounded better on my bigger system, where they replaced better cables. The Q-10's are still breaking in so this is just a preliminary report! I also purchased a DH Labs digital coax cable for my DVD player (used in a separate, small-scale HT system) and like it very much as well. So I'm a big fan of DH-Labs and think it is well worth a try before you go off experimenting with mega-bucks cables. Jeff Delman of Value Audio (he advertises on this site) made and sold me most of my DH Labs stuff, he offers meticulous hand-crafted custom assembly of the cables and free shipping. But these cables are also available used or in auctions on this site as well.
