networked ICs

bass response on networked speaker cables is consistently more deep / impactful than non-networked cables.

is the same true for interconnects? i.e. how is the bass response of transparent / MIT ICs vs their non-networked competition?

I have always preferred MITs to other cables in my system - although I have to admit that sometimes the differences are so small I am not sure I could pick them out in a blind test. I find not only their bass to be just right but the mids and highs too.
NME. Networks typically alter the highs resulting in smearing of the soundstage. YMMV.
Not mine in the least rch10. My Mileage does vary...
Rch10: I put a pair of my MITs on an impedance analyzer and the bandwidth was superior to all amps I have ever tested. I don't where your information came from but as far as I am concerned, it is totally wrong.

I cracked open a pair of MIT T3 interconnect's and the box was literally empty,I then cracked open the speaker cables and was happy to find a nice bit of components inside.
My T2 interconnects have essentially zobel networks in them. I never opened my speaker cable boxes but they are probably similar.

I would say that lesser MIT models are conventional indeed. Lord knows that most companies charge lots more money just for that!
