    I have cheap Cable Talk 3.1 and enjoy their mid-highs very much, voices, guitars, pianos... sound very musical, but the mid-lows could be sharper and more detailed...

    I have been testing several about ten times more expensive cables, the last beeing the Kinder 4 TC. Their mid-lows are indeed better, but in the end they don´t sound as good as the 3.1, the wife´s reaction has allways been they are crap, the old ones sound much nicer...

    Are we enjoying some kind of "distortion" :confused:

    My system is quite good, TAG AV32R, Rotel amps, Arcam DV88 DVD and Sonus Faber speakers with 2 REL Stratas, and I think it deserves better cables, but, in the end, the cheapos always sound better :(

    Sujestions are welcome :blush:

    You have a point Kev.

    But, as I mentioned, I know it could be better if I managed to merge the good mid-highs of the Cable Talk with the fast mid-lows of the Kimber...

    I really don´t have an urge to spend more money, but as I came this far...

    I found what I was looking for, well, sort off... Santa came early this year with a pair of Deltecs Black Sixteen...

    They cost 3 times what I was trying to spend, but the improvement is larger too, as if I added more drivers to my speakers, a LOT more bass, very tight and very musical too...
