jonathan, my system has 2 sets of valhallas and 2 sets of transparent ref xl. these are all balanced interconnects. i am useing the transparent opus mm speaker cable. since i have a 30 foot fun of ref. xl between my preamp and amp i have not tried the valhallas exclusively as interconnects. i am tempted to replace my 30 foot run with valhalla but am waiting for the opus interconnect and will want to be able to get the trade-in with transparent. in comparing the 2 in my system i agree with your comments. the openness of the valhalla is the best i've heard in an interconnect. the ref. xl is still very good and among the very best at any price. as we discussed this before i don't need to mention the performance of the opus.
