Well, try out a few ICs I did, and I ended up with going with the VdH 501 Silver Hybrid. Sorry Musicdoc, didn't take your advice, but let me explain.
I started out with the JPS FX Superconductor, which is a normal line level IC. It is very well shielded, perhaps one of the best. While the sound was very clean and orderly, you can place everything in its place on the soundstage, it sort of left me a bit dry emotionally.
Tried out the other silver IC I had taking it from the CD side and swapping it over to the tonearm. There was too much hum for my liking. This is an unshielded IC, while v good for line level signals, for phono use, it was just unsuitable.
Switched in the VdH 501 silver and immediately the first thing I noticed was a quiet. It was so silent I wasn't even sure I was connected to the analog source, mistaking it for CD. Sonically the music took on a real jump/swing. This cable emphasizes the music, bring the performers/instruments to the front. Very dynamic, crytaline highs, and deep, full and tuneful bass, forget audiophile terms, its just natural. You know once in a while, you come across a component that when you hear it for the first time, you know immediately that it sounds so "correct".
