I used Kimber KCAG wire (called AGSS) for many years in a braid like KCAG's, and I now have well over 100' of this wire just sitting around, because after trying Stealth CWC and CWR interconnects, see www.interlinkhouse.com, I came to realize that this Kimber wire is good for no audio purpose. The touching multistrands are bad too, but the main problem is that its strands are just too thick. Skin effect is a bigger problem than most people realize. Stealth comes wih a 30-day money-back guarantee, so trying them costs you only shipping, minor for interconnects. More evidence against AGSS: I have a high quality passive preamp that I had internally wired with AGSS, and it sounded LOTS better when I replaced it with single strands of Stealth wire as used in the CWS (cros-wrapped silver) interconnect. If you give Stealth cables a try, I'm sure you'll be glad you did.
