Cable Inventory

The fewer the better.
OK, I have a special order Milland Cable for the Usone 900's sounds great, but the fabric wrap is pretty microphonic.
Have ordered an output cable from Blue Jeans for my Apogee Duet. Update: It IS a HUGE upgrade!
Everything else comes from Monoprice. Using Coax for Audio rocks. (Stiffly).
