Nordost Blue Heaven speaker cables are pretty well fleshed out. Very different from the IC's. I don't know about the others.

This weekend swapped one of the Goertz sets (preamp to amp) for the Red Dawn but left the Goertz between phono preamp and pre. Sounds MUCH better. Much fuller and the bass, while still a little thinner than the Hero, is certainly more tuneful. Was planning to buy a second set of Red Dawn but maybe I'll be fine without it. Cables really are just tone controls aren't they?
They are tone controls if all they offer is wires. MIT cables deliver the music intact with exceptionally realistic tone, depth, imaging and balance. I had the Goertz on loan for evaluation back in the 90's when they started out (HarmTech sent me some of their stuff as well). The Goertz are completely dismal at conveying music in a natural way. You could pick up some UHF channels with them however:O)
I picked up a pair of Soundsilver Symettry and find the sound to be very lush, and organic sounding. These cables are a combination of gold and silver for the signal and solid core copper returns of the variety found in Speltz's Anti-cables. The price to performance ratio cannot be beat and Stewart at Soundsilver is absolutely great to work with. Really fine sounding cables and the best bang for the buck in my opinion.
