    I honestly think these speakers are underpriced. They sound too good for the money.

    Now add $1200 3.5mm mini cable for better sound.

    Audioquest cables are garbage. A real audiophile interconnect is the Kimber KS1036.

    Impressive technology. It's got hyper-pure, molecularly optimized Black Pearl silver. However, I am not too sure about the orthogonally braided matrix. It might confuse some of the electrons.

    Prices start at $1995. for the shorter version of the cable for those of us on a budget.

    They thought of everything.

    That's right, cheez' audioquest is for poor people. Real sound starts with Kimber.

    You are comparing apples to oranges. Mine is a single piece cable. The Kimber1036 is single ended cables in pair. That's actually pretty cheap. The Audioquest line for the single ended starts at over $7500 for a 1.5m and goes up to $60k, young man... Funny you start to accept that high-end cables being better. Look how much influence I have caused in this community. Ha ha ha ha.:D ;)

    I noticed in your sig that you have changed your mind AGAIN on the speakers to get and are now going for the CMS65. Those are higher powered speakers and this goes AGAINST the teachings of Audiotruth who has said repeatedly that lower powered speakers always sound better. Why are you doing this, he will be disappointed. Are you becoming an unbeliever?
