    :hiya: ,
    Just wondered if you may be able to describe the sound/(differences) of the above cables, as I am finding it very tricky to find a local(ish) HiFi shop that sells these three makes - any pointers much appreciated.

    Are you talking power cables? Or interconnects?

    Ah Ha Good Point, sorry, time for my head to hit the pillow I think.

    Was talking interconnects, but power leads are on the list after the pre-amp to power-amp cable is sorted,

    IMO cables do not have sounds. The difference you here (if you do) is the freedom of music flow from one end of the cable to the other. So what you get when connected on 1 piece of equipment may be totally different on another or may just have characteristics similiar in nature.

    I hate talking about interconnects...... This is about the only cable in the system that I do believe makes a difference to the overall sound. An arguement will probably ensue...
    I've tried Nordost and found them a bit bright and scratchy and very overpriced. Van Den Hul are quite smooth and detailed. Never tried Black Rhodium.
    Atlas were the best all round performance cable I found.
    I tried making some solid silver ones but they weren't as smooth and were lacking in Bass.
