    I have a pair of audio note an vx and also a pair of dh labs silver sonic revelation , both pure silver and not cheap , ive had them from my audionote
    dac to pre amp , I have now replaced them both with neotech nemoi 5220 and ms audio plugs 13.99 a meter for the cable , the neotech cable sounds great in this position , both pure silver cables can sound precise but a bit hard sounding not so musical as the neotech stuff , I have tried the
    neotech cable from pre to monoblocks and I prefer the klotz 5000 in this position , the silver cables can lack a bit of body and weight in all positions

    NEOTECH NEI-3004 or ELECAUDIO SC-221OCC also work very well, but they benefit from some decent plugs.

    Which type are your absolute finals (insert caveat here)... that you have spent the least on.

    Looking for some AOS recommendations for the least outlay.

    I know about the Klotz MC5000 and Brian's silver/gold hybrid types and can easily live with them.

    Great cables but I wouldn't mind trying something different.

    Not interested in bonkers money cables, reason... I'd rather buy music... Lol

    Not only that but there are oodles of cables on the market which are reasonably priced, such as Van Damme.

    Thanks

    I've recently discovered AudioQuest interconnects. First bought Red River, to connect my phono stage to my preamp. That made a very audible improvement. Then went for Golden Gate to connect my preamp to power amp. Even more noticeable improvement!
    Don't you just hate it when you cannot detect where the post ends and a signature line begins?

    They look interesting, Alex.

    I've never thought of those, they always seemed too 'mass produced' but looking at them, they do look really well made and since I last looked at them years ago they have certainly upped the game somewhat.

    Thanks for all of the suggestions so far... quite diverse.

    But now I'm more confused than ever... lol

    Hey-ho!

    Indeed. Sonically, the Carbokab 225s, as you've just mentioned, are undoubtedly a step up from the (already excellent) Klotz, so more folks should try them.

    Also, I popped a pair of Mark Grant's new HDX1s on my RPi/IQ Audio streamer, and was extremely surprised (and very pleased) at how good they were! The new plugs he's using seem to make all the difference, in comparison with the old cables:

    These certainly don't perform like 60 interconnects, more like 600 ones!!

    Couldn't agree more. As I said earlier, I would still be very happy with Marks cables... The new HDX1 interconnects are simply brilliant.

    Very happy with Mark Grant cables, had them for years now and never felt the need for change - money goes on music.

    Im very lucky that Brian quite often pops over to let me try his various creations.

    I have quite a few in active service in both my main rig/av set up and my sons system.

    They give MGs cables a good run for the money...
