Seasons greetings Mcgarick.I have MAC"Silver Braided"I/C's between my Marantz DV-7001 & Yaqin Tube Buffer & the Buffer to Yaqin Tube Integrated Amp.The other day I swapped in some Audioquest Diamondback copper I/C's just to see how it would sound.ARGHHH,terrible.Even though the cables have several hundred hours on them & I let then cook in all day before listening it was like I put a blanket over the speakers.The MAC cables are Pure Silver & can be had through the Auction section at VERY resonable prices.
I have really enjoyed ridge street cables and audio note cables with my tube preamp and amps (disclosure -- i am selling some ridge street interconnects at the moment). neither is particularly cheap, but they are solid choices that you can keep as your system changes/grows. ridge street has a trial period so there is no real risk and the owner robert is a nice guy.
