I have been an audiophile a long time... I truly love this hobby of pursuing the best sound possible. But, I have learned that lots of money does not necessarily buy lots of better sound. This is especially true of speaker cables and IC's. In the past I have spent up to $4500 for speaker cables and up to $2500 for IC's. But, now I have found outstanding cables from a small producer by the name of MAC... "My Audio Cables." I am using his UltraSilver IC's... one from my Musical Fidelity A5 CD Player to my Audio Research VSi55 Integrated Tube Amp, and one from my DirecTV HD DVR to the ARC VSi55. I am in "Hog" heaven... I can hardly believe how an IC less than $300 can bring out all the sound you would ever envision from my Spendor S8e speakers. Coupled with the MAC Sound Pipes speaker cables, biwired, the sound is magnificent! I now have the UltraSilver Sound Pipes speaker cables on order, but it may be that I can't improve on what I'm hearing now... but, I will see. Steve Hallick offers a money back guarantee if you are not satisfied after listening for a month... but, so far, I have not sent back any thing. Why should I? His cables blew away the "expensive" cables I had. If you don't believe me... just try his cables for a month and then tell me I'm wrong. I bet you will thank me, if you do try them. With my system, they are the best I've heard in all respects.
Virtual dynamics might be a solution.They are awesome at mid and low end performence and are extremely fast.I am using the same speaker and I am trying to perfect every single piece in the chain because Sarastro just reveal .If I were you I would not go to cheap stuff.Synergistic Designer Ref as IC creates a deep black soundstage and lowers the noise dramatically.Also higly recommended.Kimber KS 1020 creates hesitation .Piano sound starts cracking e.g. Crystal Cable are very good at midrange but lowers the energy at the bottom.Regards
Out of those, Siltech, IMO. Just as good for fewer bucks is Pure Note Paragon (sale price or used). See the 'Gon for more opinions.
