I know what you are looking for! I had not really heard CYMBALS!!! in my system until very recently either. My system: Genesis 200, Mark Levinson 33, 32, 30.6, Genesis Digital Lens + CEC TL-0. You can definitely benefit from getting rid of the Z systems preamp & replacing it with a decent tube unit. I have owned the Z systems as well. They are very impressive initially, but you will notice their flaws (and they have quite a few!) in time. You should also consider adding a Genesis Digital Lens. This will enhance every attribute of your system, including better shimmering highs. The piéce de resistence is adding NBS Monitor Cables for your sytem. If you want natural, shimmering highs without noise NBS is the ultimate. I am currently using their Monitor 0 cables in all my system. I did own Nordost SPM & Quattrofil, MIT Proline CVT Terminator 1000 & a few other mega buck cables. Nothing that I have heard to this date can even get half way close to the NBS cables. If you need more information or if you want to chat, you can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
