I’m just beginning the interconnect search - at least in terms of balanced cables. The only balanced cable I’ve tried thus far is a BJC Belden 1800F, which is too bright in my system. My speakers are Thiel 2.2s, which are sublime with good recordings but can be pretty unforgiving with poorly recorded music. After the initial drama of the Belden ICs, I’ve gone back to the single-ended Straightwire Rhapsody II RCAs I used with my pre-Stellar gear (Bryston preamp and Adcom power amp). The GCD and M700s are sounding great with the Rhapsody ICs, but I’m going to try to find an even better balanced cable if I can. I’ve got 3 balanced cables coming on loan from the Cable Company on Monday: Cardas Parsec, Shunyata Venom, and a Synergistic Level 1 Core cable recommended by the Cable Co.
I haven’t tried the Anti-cables, but I have explored their website a bit. Which XLRs are you using from Anti-cables, and do they have a particular sonic signature?
