I borrowed pairs of KS 1130 and KS 1136 from a dealer, and I tried them both for connecting a Krell 202 preamp to a Burmester 911 Mk3 amplifier. The 1136 was clearly better. With it in place there was a "sparkle" that I had not heard before. It probably has something to do with the ultra low input impedance of the Burmester. The extra wires in the 1136 probably lowered impedance and resistance. I bought a one meter pair of the KS 1136, and at my request the Kimber factory inverted the pin connections in order to get correct phase (the Krell has pin 2 non-inverting, the Burmester has pin 2 inverting). My speaker cables are KS 3033 bi-wired.
