I've used MIT in the past with good results, but its been a while. To be honest, their product line is so confusing I just get frustrated and look elsewhere.

Over the years, I've always found a consistent synergy with MIT cables and AQ cables when used together. I mainly use AQ DBS interconnects with MIT Shotgun speaker cables. I have stepped up to the MIT Oracle V3.2 IC's from my preamp to amp in the main rig and the use of the impedence matching network really demonstrated just how critical this function is not to mention the increased resolution and soundstage prowess the big MIT's bring.
I also use SR Resolution Reference SPEC cables for my REL subs and they match up great with the MIT speaker cables used on the main speakers. I did try a pair of AQ Volcano
DBS speaker cables and while they are very good in the resolution dept. they just don't quite have the slam and solidity that the MIT's do.
As always, YMMV.

I had the full loom of either Audioquest or MITs and found a goldilocks combination using AQ Jaguar ICs with DBS and MIT Shotgun S2 speaker cables.
Been that way for a couple of years with very good results, imho, of course.
any of you guys using MIT cabling w/ THIEL loudspeakers?
I would be interested in reading about the synergy (if any)
and your listening impressions/thoughts?"
I would be careful. Since the signal leaving the network box is different for the highs and the lows, I would be concerned that this would have an effect on the speakers time and phase characteristics.
That's not correct. The components in the network boxes are wired in parallel with the signal cable. One of the points of having a network box is to have correct signal(s) at all frequencies."
Then why do they label the outputs on the network box high and low? Are you saying that both outputs are the same and it doesn't matter how you connect them?
The MIT has multiple articulation poles across the frequency range. As you go up the price range you get more articulation poles. These are points where the phase, time and energy settling times are congruent. I would assume that in the biwired versions the high frequency articulation poles are in the upper and the lower frequency articulation poles are in the lower. If you hook them up the wrong way round the cables will not operate optimally. If you do not have biwired speakers you simply hook both the high and low together.
