I've owned and used numerous Kimbers. Currently I'm using a 1.5 meter Silver Streak between my preamp/amp, and a KS-1020 from D/A to preamp. The sound of the hybrids are superior in both resolution and noise floor, the difference is not subtle. I've also been using 8TC bi-wire runs for years, currently to my Vandersteen 3A's. The Kimber sound is best described as warm and detailed, a great combination, never fatiguing. The silver streak is a great value and top performer in its price range. I prefer it overall to the sound of the KS-1010 in terms of resolution, speed and dynamics. The KS-1020 is superior to the Silver Streak in all areas; smother, more controlled, quieter, and mor open. It is very revealing, so depending on how your system set-up is, you may love it or become dissatisfied with the weak links in your system. I recommend Kimber Kables as an excellent long term system revealer without hesitation, in both price and performance!
