Just curious, what does it do to the sound?
Here's my review of it: http://www.head-fi.org/products/tralucent-audio-uber-cable/reviews/8933
Note I'm not saying that this could replace amps or DACs. I mean looking at the cost of the cable, one could probably buy a DAC/Amp to get the same sound and still have pocket change. But if the topic is could this cable sound as good as a amp (or DAC or both combo) - to my ears yes.

Quite definitely. To me, the more the merrier - i.e. each component further adding/enhancing. It's somewhat of a dangerous game though. I think the WA7 is extremely good value for money rivalling some $2000 DAC/Amps even.
My 1Plus2 IEM setup is definitely adding up in terms of cost. Aside from that Tralucent combo, I'm adding the Analog Squared Paper TUR-06 Class A hybrid tube amp, VentureCraft DD 12V OPA627SM LE, and the iDevice. That's coming up to something between $3500->$4000 without the iPhone/iPad :p.

Mooses9, before experiencing Tralucent's cables I wasn't really a believer of cables (or I should say that I found their improvements to be, although existing, somewhat insignificant and disappointing). The Tralucent cables were the first that made a significant different to the IEM and HPL cables were the 2nd. Specifically about Tralucent, I think it's about matching :-
1) their Silver cables to me, till now, I feel don't agree with the 1Plus2 for my ears. They still sound sibilant with many of my preferred genre. However, they were great for those rather warm signatured earphones. I'm actually asking Tralucent to make one up for the FitEar MH335DW for example.
2) their Silver/Gold cables toned down the sibilance but not entirely. A better match for the 1Plus2. Incidentally these cables work great with the FitEar MH335DW. A few Tokyo/Japan Head-Fiers manage to try this cable at the Fujiya Show on Monday.
3) the Uber cable was best matched for the 1Plus2. It killed the sibilance I had with (1), and at least for me, it felt they created a larger presence than (1). To me (1) felt congested after experiencing the Uber. I also tried the Uber on the Rhapsodio RDB+ v1's and also improved it. Seems to make any IEM that's Westone/pin compatible to sound nicer. Tralucent has actually made up an Uber cable for the FitEar but I've not tried it yet.
One note I do have reservations for is that the Uber cable is fragile and you have to treat it with care. I actually carry the Uber cable in a case like this. In fact something squarer is probably better :-
