Outstanding 1.5m XLR (balanced) cable from Transparent, the MM2 version (second only to the new Gen 5 version), factory tuned to "Hi-Z" or high impedence components, like Linn, Audio Research and many others. Can be factory retuned if necessary! If your cables are "good" but not outstanding, and you have a great system, you really haven't heard it unless you have cables like these! Quiet, focused and smooth as can be! Conservatively rated an 8 but probably closer to a 9. Ck out my feedback and buy with confidence! Paypal adds 3%.
