Phild, I tried 6 different coax cables. Ensemble Digiflux, XLO, Monster, and Harmonic Technologies' Cyberlink Copper, Silver and Platinum. The Ensemble was incredibly smooth, but was just too "liquid" in my system. The XLO was voiced nicely, but was a bit grainy. Monster was bloated in the mid-bass. H. T. Cyberlink Copper was very similar to the XLO, without the grain. The "Silver" was better than the Copper, but a bit bright in the mids, though smooth. The Cyberlink Platinum was in a completely different league altogether. It was voiced beautifully, full bass with excellent pitch definition, clear, transparent mids, great high frequency extension without hardness. It should run you around $250, unless you get one second hand through Audiogon. of course there are other very good quality digital cables around, but IMO the Cyberlink Platinum is a sure thing in most systems. Good luck, let us know how it turns out for you.
