I got this cable last week and tried it in both my home and portable system. The first thing I noticed about this cable is the details that this cable lets you hear, especially high end details like cymbal hits. With this cable in my system I could definitely hear the cymbal hits much clearer on the Diana Krall "Live in Paris" DVD. I also noticed this cable will let you hear very subtle details like when Diana Krall makes some wierd moaning noises when she's really getting into the music. I barely noticed them with other cables but with this cable I didn't have to strain to hear little details like that. The downside to all those details is that this cable may be too revealing. For example, if there is any hint of sibilance on the recording than this cable will magnify it. This can be a little harsh but may smooth out over time. This cable is defintely not broken in yet, but I think right now that the bass is some what lacking. The bass notes were very tight and clean but they just didn't seem to sound as low as I've heard through my other cables. That may be just a trait of Silver cables in general. Overall, I think this is an excellent cable and will get even better when it's fully broken in.
