How do the Outlaw ICs compare to the DiMarzio MPaths? I have been thinking of trying a pair of the MPaths, as I have a pair of the regular DiMarzio ICs (for the Cosmic) that are pretty good--neutral, but a bit lacking in smoothness in the top end.
I have a pair of Kimber Select 1011s that I LOVE, but they are pretty expensive for a home theater setup. I paid $375 for a .5 meter pair. Are they worth it? Well, they sound GREAT, but I'm just WISHING that I might find something as good for less $$! What do you think, would I be better served by the MPaths or the Outlaws? Thanks, David

I hope this is not a dumb question, but does anybody have reason to believe that the 1.8m and .5m cables would sound any different? I really don't need more than the .5, and could get away cheaper that way.

My Outlaws arrived today, and I hooked them up tonight.
Kwkarth, thank you!!!!
They're not yet broken in, of course, but I imagine that they're the solution to the solution to any RFI problem relating to interconnect cables or the Corda. When there's no signal present, I hear no hiss -- nothing at all but absolutely, totally, completely dead silence -- when they're in the circuit with the Corda (running out of the Tape 2 loop on my Rotel preamp), regardless of the rotation of the Corda's volume control, from full off to full on. With signal present, the full off setting of the Corda is exactly that -- and as I turn it up, there's nothing but music emerging out of total silence.
Jan Meier's suggestion of better cables is clearly the right solution to the noise problem, and these Outlaw cables show just how superb is the Corda's S/N ratio. The problem isn't the Corda's -- at least in my case, it was the cable I was using.

Argh! WTF Outlaw? I ordered one pair of their ICs for $49.95+$10(shipping) and they charged me $114.90 for TWO times $49.95 (they say that the cables are $49.95 each and not for the pair in the receipt I got) and charged me an extra $5 for shipping (equivalent of 2-day shipping). WTF?!?!?!
And I was just going to post that I'm quite satisfied with their cable, shielding, etc.
I'm going to call them on Monday to get my money back.
