How do these compare to something like the Kimber Hero and the lower end Nordost cables like the Black Night, Solar Wind and Blue Heaven?
I had a pair of Blue Heaven for more than a year (sold yesterday matter of fact) and I would describe them as 'clean' sounding, best with warm systems. Speaking of value for the dollar I could not really distinguish them from the cheaper Signal cable's Analog Two
with eichmann bullet plug. My Arcam has two pairs of RCA outputs and I had another person connect both the Blue Heaven and Analog Two, jumping back and forth via remote and it was a toss up which I was listening to.
I think the old established companies like Nordost or Cardas are grossly overcharging. I look to newer upstart companies which sometimes have decades in the wire business, just not the consumer audio cable business.
