In my many years and many McComponents I have found that Cardas is most pleasing to my ears. I started with Monster years ago, moved on to Tara Labs lower end then thru many other trials and utilization of The Cable Co lending library landed on Cardas. Buy used here on Audiogon and save the money.
I think McCables are made by Tributaries for them, thru some relationship of the two companies joined at the hip years ago.
But in my experience, I have found Tributaries to be bright, however their digital/video cables are a great value. My opinions of course.
I started a thread about the MAC vs. Mc years ago and was shot down as MAC was the correct abbreviation, however I totally agree with MoFi that has joined the camp:)
