    Jimbo,

    **160pf/m.**

    That may help me with my 2M black which may sound better via higher capacitance cable. My current RCA IC is about 100pf.

    Too high a capacitance will roll off the treble and clarity Jim. Long term planning for a Kontrapunkt might be beneficial now.

    Yes your right mate. I get a tad too much treble and clarity with the 2M However around 100pF great with the KB and you have obviously had good results with yours.

    Stay strong Jim, a Kb may be just around the corner

    Props to Bigman for taking the time and making the effort to try lots of cables and different plugs until he feel he's struck gold. Good luck if you do decide to go fully commercial with these.

    A forum enthusiast who has built his knowledge and tested his own findings by letting others try: What could be better than that? Surely that's what this hobby and forums are all about.

    I reckon that mixture of plug and cable will work really well.

    I have a mark grant with eichman silver bullets and a few of Brians ms audio plugged cables-all really good.

    Its a bit like making a meal-getting the right ingredients and then mixing them-every element makes a difference.

    Good on you Oliver-hope a few members get a lift in their system from them.
