Interconnects and Speaker Cable, What in your history hit your pleasure button?

Many of us have had several sets of interconnects and speaker cables.  I have had many of the brands associated with at one time or another of being SOTA.

The ones that I remember having the most aural and mental impact on my pleasure index were the Wireworld Gold Eclipse.  I am not endorsing the Copper vs. Silver debate or forgetting the Nordost, Kimber and many other brands I have owned, I just remember the Gold Eclipse as being a major listening pleasure. 

And you?

I've compared and had a lot over the years. Only ones that really did it for me were all Synergistic. The first ones that really amazed were Synergistic Research Element Copper Tungsten Silver speaker cables. The CTS replaced some nearly 20 year old SR Resolution Reference .5 speaker cables that were themselves really good, well good enough I was happy with them for 20 years! The CTS were "only" 15 years old when I bought them earlier this year- yet so good I never dreamed a wire could make so much difference. These CTS came with Galileo power modules for the Active Shielding. Right away I had Michael Spallone modify the MPC which brought them up to a whole new level. Talk about pleasure! Truly amazing inner detail, deep stage, powerful dynamics, black background. Probably the last speaker cables I will ever own.

With interconnects, hearing the CTS got me wondering how much better my Resolution Reference interconnect could be. So a month or so ago I decided to try the Synergistic Atmosphere Euphoria. These come wired for grounding, which I have yet to use. Even so these are at least as impressive as the CTS. They are on my turntable, the only thing used for serious listening, although these things sound so good it should be called pleasurable listening, or sometimes when spinning one of my White Hot Stampers transcendental listening. Sorry. Running out of superlatives.

Sometimes people who think they know something will try and fool the gullible into thinking wire isn't all that. All I can say, the only other things I love as much as my Synergistic wire are my Herron phono stage, Koetsu, Conqueror arm and Miller Carbon Turntable. Yes wire is that big a deal. Finding the best is not easy. You mentioned a lot of wanna-bees, and I went through a bunch more myself. When you find the right ones though, then you realize all you had to go through to get there was totally worth it. Hits my pleasure button every night.
Silver conductors have been hitting my pleasure button, since they started using it in cables.   Even so; it's been interesting, how information can still be lost, even with some, "better" cables.  ie: After some reading on the Wireworld Platinum Eclipse 7 interconnects, I thought I’d try a pair, to upgrade from Silver Audio Hyacinths(a few years back) . I’d enjoyed those(feeding my main amps), for almost a decade, by then. More defined(I could listen further into the mix), but- my sound stage narrowed, by about 5-6’. Before sending the audition pair back to The Cable Company(to allow further comparison), I ordered Synergistic’s Tesla Apex interconnects(their best, below bank-breaking, then). The same beautiful rendition as the Eclipse pair, BUT- my sound stage was back, in all it’s spaciousness.    A big +1, for Michael Spallone's MPC mod(worked for me too).     I did try Wireworld's Gold Eclipse 7s, between my TacT RCS 2.2X and Bass amp.  They're still there.  
I strongly suspect the “trick” with silver cables is a combination or all of the following,

wire directionality
cryogenic treatment
longish burn-in
dielectric material
silver content in connectors 
I like Wire World Eclipse 7 power cords on my dac and transport,Eclipse 8 ics between dac and pre.Analysis Solo Crystal from pre to amp is 'the one',just perfect.I've got Analysis Solo Crystal Oval 8 speaker cables on the way now.If they give me more of what that ic is doing I'll be extremely happy.The timbre,depth,dynamics,etc. are just the way I like it.
