Couger4u...what is the rest of your system? Did you buy the Heimdall Series 1 or the current Series 2 cables?

If the Heimdalls are brand new, then maybe a little bit more break-in is required. But I own the Heimdall Series 1 interconnects and speaker cables with ARC amplification and Thiel 2.4 speakers (which to some people are bright but with proper amplification they are not) and I have very natural sounding treble performance. So my guess is more break-in required.
What speaker cables did you switch from? It could be that your prior cables may have produced slightly rolled off highs and now you are readjusting to more HF info coming through but again it should not be edgy or cause any strain, it should sound very natural through the Heimdalls. Have you tried tweaking speaker placement and adjusting speaker toe-in?
The Heimdall Series 1 does not sugar coat anything, if you system has some edge, that will show through. I have read that the Series 2 are a bit more forgiving.Agreed +1 - Did an in home demo and the Series 2 are also more liquid and warmer sounding. My Tyr 2 Ic's should be here tomorrow.
But I have the Frey's at at times (especially with recordings that do have an edge) The Eco3 helps. Not earth shattering but it does help a bit. Better recordings then sound better. That being said I only treat the cables every month or so.
