    My thinking precisely, Jostein! Of course, these things are still T/T and system dependent, but if the cable performs in the way which I think it will, it's likely to work well on most T/Ts

    Mark, I agree, although the other (rather clever) elements of its construction should also prove to be influential.

    Yeah, I agree, the construction choices sound intelligent

    If it comes close to the Tyr's performance (at 1/10th of the price) then this would be one very, very special cable indeed.

    The TYR is Andrew's usual cable, Mark (see his sig). He's bought the one I'm getting, as a comparison
