I've used Analyis Plus on my VSM-MMs. Certainly I enjoy the results, and Bobby didn't have a *problem* with my using them...

I needed a long run for my Merlin VSMs and couldn't afford the Audience or Cardas at that length so I tried out both the Signal and River Cable Flexgy 6. The Signal cable is more neutral and slightly more extended at the top but I love the sound of the Flexgy. More euphonic. Sort of like the difference between good SS and Tubes. Try them out. They are both very affordable and great cables and will give Cardas and Audience a run for their money.
I am not familiar with Merlin speakers. There is just no dealers in my area. I would love to hear a pair. From everything I have heard they sound like they are terrific.
So take my speaker cable suggestion with a grain of salt. But the Anti-cables by Paul Speltz are amazing. I know our audiophile brain says, for the money they can't be good, but they are. They are great. They replaced my old Audioquests that were $600 Canadian.
There is a review (other than consumer) online now:
For the price you have nothing to loose. Give them a try, I think everyone will be pleasantly surprised.
There are plently of posts about them on Audiogon and Audioasylum.
Also, sorry for the rave, but I just can't keep in how much I love them.
I read the posts and review. Hard to argue with this - cost a fraction of the competition - cant really lose much except a few bucks. After all that, I need to hear them, if not on Merlins, then on my other speakers. Thanks for the suggestion; always willing to try something that wont break the bank and teach me something new............maybe even put Stealth Indras and PAD Dominus in a new perspective.
