Like everything else in audio, system matching is essential. I'm a firm beleiver that given the right synergy, everything would sound great. Having said this, I agree with the people who have recommended the Goertz BASED on your sytem and your system's sonic qualities. The other person who is recommending the 8tc based simply on HIS equipment really is a weak recommendation. I've had them both and like I said previously, both are great-sounding cables GIVEN the right mix of equipment. Recommending components on absolute attributes is quite difficult unless they are ultra neutral-sounding. I'd go with the Goertz for your set up. Another good-sounding cable you might check out is the Audioquest Midnight (older model but would still hold its own) or Crystal. Both these have a "warmer" tonality with excellent transparency and very good bottom end.....Good luck!
