You might head over to the Iconolast thread and pose that question to Galen (rower30) or Bob at Blue Jeans Cable (BobBJC). They’ll give you a straight answer whether or not you’re in the market for Iconoclasts.
From what I recall, and if I interpreted his comments correctly, Galen (designer of the Iconoclast cables) mentioned that the sonic effects depend on the bulk properties of the cabling - i.e. the L,R,C measured performance per foot times the length of the run - so dependent on the overall length of the cable.
To me, this means that if you have a long interconnect run between your pre and power amps, this longer of the two runs is the more critical. This is my situation, so I’ll be looking at the 20 ft run first when I try the Iconoclasts.
BTW, I’ve been using Kimber HERO XLR’s for the past number of years in conjunction with some pretty revealing gear and have found them to offer very good performance at a modest price. $220/ 1m pair at AudioAdvisor.com.
Also, for about the same price, the Belden BAV IC’s that Iconoclast is offering are supposed to be killer. Blue Jeans Cable offers a 30 day free trial. Can’t go wrong with that.
