Hey trel. I just got a pair of Diamond3 interconnects. Ouch. At half price, they're still too expensive. I think I will be keeping them, however. The Diamond3 improves on the bass speed and power of the Lapis3. I wish I had another pair of Diamond, so I could get try the system with Lapis or Diamond throughout the system. The Lapis is much more organic and focused and natural sounding as compared to my last copper job, the TARA Labs Master gen 2(on sale now). But the Tara has sounded better than the Lapis in friends' sustems, so obviously, YMMV. IF you get bored, and you are pretty sure you want to buy something, anything (practically) within the next few months, audition some cables from the "library" - The Cable Company! www.fatwyre.com. I've never purchased anything from them, but they have been kind and helpful. I'm sorry that I dont know anything good about the new AQ products. I DO know that now is the time to search for coveted items in AQ's discontinued, older product lines. You might lika da silver, heh???
