I agree-Signal Cable cables are very good. I'm using balanced interconnects from my CDP to amps and couldn't be happier!

I agree that Frank's cables are a steal at the price and offer very good performance, but in my system in a head to head comparison the Acoustic Zen Silver Ref smokes Signal Analog 2, no contest, the Analog 2 is congested and dull compared to the AZ cable. I have not tried the model with the bullet plugs though and maybe that makes all the difference.
i also tried Frank's Signal Analog 2 cable and the biwire speaker cable in my system...they replaced Tara Labs Ref. interconnects and Innersound speaker wire...well, the Signal Cable sounded much better than Tara/Innersound combo...but then i discovered Synchestra Signature that smoked the Signal Cable and for $200 used interconnects and speaker cable (retail for $800) i thought i got a pretty darn good deal...otoh, for less than $200 retail interconnects and speaker cables Signal Cable products are amazing!
Kind of OT but how revealing does a system have to be in order to be able to discern between various interconnects? I am thinking of trying some Signal Cable IC's but I am wondering if my mid-fi at best system will see any benefits.
Speakers: JBL S38
Reciever: Sony DA4ES

Eichmann RCA's have less material to get in the way of the signal,but they can be fragile to some users. I have tried various RCA's in order to narrow down what might be the best to use on cables I am making.
Alot depends on synergy also. Some people have experienced negative attributes using Bullet plugs,but a majority of users swear by them.
Other plugs I used with good results are HomeGrowns Gold\Silver and Rhodium plated RCA's along with Cardas SLVR's. For speaker wire termination I go with Audioquest for being minimalist in desin like Eichmanns. I will also point out that if you can get away with not using termination for speaker cables use none. I use Bananas connectors and spades for Bi-Wiring purposes.
Lastly try to take out as many binding post as possible because they add coloration. I have my XO's outboard and connect to them with bare wire.
Hope that helps!
