In terms of both IC and speaker cables, I have tried or currently own: LAT International, Anti-cables, Signal, Audio Art, Straley Reality, Morrow Audio, Blue Jeans, and Cobalt. My choice for speakers - Gregg Straley Reality; and after conducting my own "mini" shootout for interconnects - LAT International was tops, with Blue Jeans very close behind. I'm putting together a small tube based bedroom system with all Blue Jeans ... speaker and IC's (they don't make PC's, so Volex). Because of "price bias", initially I was surprised at how well the BJC performed. Of course YMMV.
