I'm curious myself. Lets hope some with experience here chime in
I was using empirical audio speaker cables and xtreme audio X5 and X4 interconnects. My gear...
1) Parasound JC-1 monoblocks
2) ML-380 preamp
3) Benchmark media DAC-1
4) MacBook as the source, driving the DAC1 through Empirical audio USB off ramp
5) Cadence audio ARCA electrostat speakers
6) REL studio III sub.
1), 2) and 3) are Empirical audio modded.
