Funny you should ask. I, too, run 1 meter Indras (balanced ) from DAC to pre. However, for the last four months I have been using a pair of solid gold ICs sent to me by Jack Bybee (unsolicited). Essentially, these cables run a dead heat with the Indras to me. Differences exist but, honestly, are insignificant IMO. Except that the price, I'm sure, will be less than half if these wires see the consumer light of day. I know almost no construction details other than a solid gold conductor is used.
Then, about two weeks ago, my DAC crapped out on me. I called Jeff Smith about it and after a get-to-know-one-another conversation he cleverly hit me with the "...how'd ya like to try a set of Palladiums between DAC and pre..."? Well, truth be told, they'd been way up on the list for a long time. Same result. These three are the very best I've ever heard and interchangeable AFAIC. BTW, the DAC resurrected itself for a week and then rhapsodied itself away again so both it and the Palladiums are on the road trip back to CA. as we speak.
So for my money, at least two others stand alongside Indra on that exalted plane of the best there is available but I have heard no better. As always, YMMV!
