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 am a big fan of the Cardas Neutral Reference -- great dimensionality and a little warmth in the midrange. Good value on the used market.

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

My Magical Shiny Green IC. They look cool and they don't do anything bad to the sound of my headphones. And they lock, I could play with that feature all day but then again I'm easily amused.
