I knew Eric would be one of the first to chime in on this thread. :). Wombat, I've been using Rick's full cryo'd Audition Package since April/May of this year and it is far better in my system than anything else I've tried.
I've tried many other different cables in my system and the Auditions have given me a much higher level of transparency and detail while delivering a huge and precise sonic sound stage.
Much of my past problems have been caused by mixing and matching different cables that never really had synergy with my components. Also, switching to the complete Audition line may have allowed a more uniform flow of current throughout my system, so this may not be a fair comparison. But last night I did switch in my old Cardas Golden Cross IC between my preamp and amp and noticed and immediate veiling of the sonic picture.
As Eric suggested, give Rick a call. I believe he now offers a longer trial period than when I purchased my set, so it'll give you a chance to truly see if they are right in your system.
