So whats your favourate ICs? Why do you like them and where do you use them?....Just curious as usual!

I use Chord The solid, Linn ICs, Van Den Hul Hybrid, Eric343's Nitrogens. I use them between my Cyrus CDP and my PPA. I like to alternate to keep the sound fresh and different.

I've tried the Kimber PBJ's, too, and I agree that they're a great value. My favorite IC, however, is the Nordost Blue Heaven, which I hope to get for my system soon. The Blue Heaven used to be a very expensive cable, but now they can be found used at very affordable prices.

Van Den Hull has a number of hybrid offers. Which one do you use specifically?

I've been happy with my Audioquest Corals. I use them between my Arcam and my PPA, also between my Sony DVD player and the receiver. I have a pair of Audioquest Viper that I use between the Arcam and the receiver, but honestly I had a hard time discerning much difference between the Viper and the Coral in this application.
I have only tried one other cable and that is the Nordost Solar Wind, which I still use in the bedroom rig. I like the Coral better than the Solar Wind.

I need more cable experience.

I use Grover Silver Ref in my system source -> headamp and like them a lot.
Previously I have used the Outlaw PCAs (only other decent cable I that I have heard)

Dont really know how much better it can get from here but I am not very eager to find out

I like Radio Shack cables or the ones I make myself, because they are cheap and not as fragile as the ones that come with a CD player.

Well, I've only got the Cardas Neutral Reference and haven't even tried them, yet, but they're definately my favourites
