My dealer recently demo'd the difference between Valhalla and lesser Nordost and what I'm currently using. Though skeptical, I was impressed and did actually perceive significantly more musical detail with the Valhalla. Given recent Nordost rep demo night which I missed, I was still privy to the 25% off proffered during the Nordost demo. So I pulled the trigger. Two pairs of 1M interconnect and 4M speaker cable is still going to be just shy of 20 large with the promo price, MI sales tax etc. As my luck runs, I will virtually guarantee Nordost will have a press release in the next month or two degrading my 20K investment significantly. On the brighter side, it should allow me to buy the last 1.5M link from pre to power amp at a better price for a previously "burned in" pair.
