I think ASG-2 are quite a bit superior to H-200, in more than a few area's. the head stage and soundstage on ASG-2 is much larger so everything sounds bigger or blown up in proportion, it has better coherency right across the board and makes H-200 sound congested, also ASG-2's detail extension goes beyond what H-200 can achieve and makes them sound babyish, especially with the intimate vocals ASG-2 has. Far as tonality is concerned I prefer the crisper edge H-200 has over the slightly darker mid bassy ASG-2 which sounds more natural. But one cannot deny H-200 must bow down and assume the position when ASG-2 enters the room.

This isn't to say H-200 are bad because I still use them almost daily recently. H-200 lived past my Westone 4 ownership which I have now sold. I have word from T-Peos that they'll be sending me some H-200 cables to review and give impression on this week. One pure silver, and another silver plated cable, (the cables I showed you all a page or so back) So really guys the cables don't appear that far away, even though I think it's taken too long personally....
