I have recently reaffirmed my belief that silver IC's + my tubed MG Head are a great combo. I am using an Entech 203.2 DAC connected to a MG Head Mk3 OTL with Ei EL84EG's and a Sylviana GB-5751. I am using Sennheiser 600's with the stock 650 cable, running out of my pc with E-mu 1212M. I just found an old Headphile blacksilver IC that I had re-terminated for something else, and since I just learned to solder I decided to test my skills by restoring this cable with some gold-plated radio shack RCA's. I used silver solder. Now I'm listening to it and it sounds GREAT! The difference is quite profound, going from a pair of cheap acoustic research stranded copper rca's. It's really smooth and sounds shimmery and tight, punchy with deeper/cleaner sounding bass. Very nice!
