I wouldn't trade my complete set of Sonoran Plateau interconnects (digital, interconnects, speaker, and power cords) for anything. The reason is simple, ten years ago I was upgrading my system. I purchased a Theta Data Basic and Gen. III, a Krell KRC-3 pre-amp and KSA-50S amp, along with Dunlavy SC-IV's. I auditioned every cable that I could get my hands on, and ended up with Magnan Type Vi balanced interconnects and Synergistic Research power cords.
The speaker cable selection was driving me crazy, UNTIL! There's a song by David and David, track 3 on their CD and there's an instrument playing in the left channel. I couldn't tell what it was 10 years ago, until I discovered silver wire. The Audioquest Sterling bi-wire speaker cables ($2000.00) were 50% silver- 50% copper, and they were quick. I bought them over every other speaker cable I auditioned because for the first time, I could distinguish it as a guitar. For the last ten years I heard my 'guitar' on my $24,000 stereo.
Last summer I got the itch again to upgrade, and started on the digital end. I purchased a used Conrad-Johnson D/A-3 DAC and the Stereovox HDXV digital cable. I bought an Acoustic Zen Silver Reference II single-ended interconnect because the c-j wasn't balanced. I called The Cable Company and had a zillion other balanced cables sent for the Krell to Krell connection. I wasn't satisfied with any of them and looked up an old friend who used to be a salesman at Ovation to see what he thought.
He is now in business for himself installing home theaters, and he said that he's carrying the AudioPoint, Sistrum, Sonoran and Harmonic Technology lines. I'd never heard of them other than the AudioPoints, I have everything spiked with them. He told me the Sonoran cables were awesome, but I was skeptical since "Stereophile" never reviewed them.
He brought them over one night and hooked them up. As soon a I played that David and David song with the Sonoran wires, BAM!, it was a synthesizer, clear as a bell. These little $500.00 interconnects laid everything wide open. And I bought them, the complete set, dumping the $1000.00 to $2000.00 wires.
Whatever it is about them, the shieldng or I don't know. I just know that they sounded fanatastic, the detail, the soundstage, the dynamics. I've since replaced all of my components with a Musical Fidelity A308cr pre-amp and amp, and Tri-Vista DAC, Theta Data Basic II, and B&W Silver Signatures. The synergy is still there!
