The Whiplash litz cable has broken in very well with the 560's. Right now I am getting such wonderful layered sound that is also melodic that I am somewhat surprised at the difference.  Background sounds are better delineated so as to make a more believable sound scape.

ok... enough of me and my lack of cable science knowledge...

That was supposed to be my point and I agree wholeheartedly.  I have auditioned many cables in the past that were much better and cheaper than many more expensive cables.  Many will tell you that several manufacturers in fact use the same cable but dress them up differently and whoever is the better marketer wins.  

As far as the dac/amp connection well there's a ton of talk on interconnects for that on Audiogon but I'm not sure about headfi.  I wouldn't expect it in this thread though..

 

There will always be claims of "giant killers" in the audio world but in the end it's like you said..  some stuff sounds better subjectively and that's what you have to go with.

Next we'll have adapter burn in. ;)
