Cardas is widely considered to be on the warm side. I would probably ONLY consider buying used with cables.

I've borrowed or owned about half a dozen IC's and out of those the Harmonic Technology Truthlinks (I own two pair) are clearly the most full bodied and warm and still had extended highs. That's not a huge sampling of what's available out there but might be of some help if the Truthlinks were on your list.
the quest for a warm cable has appeared on other threads.
the problem with achieving warmth, detail and treble extension is that the very nature of warmth denotes treble attenuation and and a slight peak in the lower frequencies. since warmth is a coloration , its presence will affec resolution. so, if you want warmth, you will get a reduction in clarity and treble response (spl).
Agree with Ssglx, heimdall all the way. You can read my older posts about it, simply amazing cable - it gives very, very appealing midrange bloom,, and still maintains enough treble & everything else..
Read the post and went straight to musicdirect, they still have the 50% off deal!! 349 $ for 1 meter pair is a even lower than a used on a'gon! believe me , when they will be out of stock, you will sell for at least the same price, when you will be going up the nordost ladder..
damn, I think I need to reserve one pair for myself..
