Golden Cross is the warmest. The Golden Reference was an attempt to merge the best attributes of the Golden Cross and the Neutral Reference.

I used o sell Krell.My boss wouldn't carry them (one rep had him hypnotized) but I'd tell friends and customers I liked any Crdas was better than Tributaries,Monster,XLO,or MIT we had on shelf.Tames nasties better han just about anything out there.Good move on GC though I used 5C with a Krell FPB 300 and it was fine,
IMS I replaced The Golden Cross with The Golden Reference and I like them better. Much more detail in the mid range. But it also could be a combination of up grading my power chords from hex link to Golden Reference at the same time. Either way I didn't notice much difference in warmth between the two and i believe either cable would serve you well. When it comes to solid state gear either one of these cables will add a tubeyness to the sound imo.
