Analysis Plus Silver Oval XLR Interlink – Mini Review premium
Not unlike the Solo Crystal Oval but with a lot more air in the treble, a more forward character and a leaner, better articulated bass.

AudioQuest Fire premium
Positioned 3 models above the Water in the Elements series, the Fire is not only better, it is incomparably better. The Fire is the best cable I have heard thus far!

Driade Flow Link Reference 808 XLR and RCA premium
The Flow Link Reference 808 provides a wholly unforced, pure, and natural rendition of anything that you play. The cables have the fluidity, smoothness, and organic presentation that I have come to know from the Flow 405 speaker cables but with a new level of articulation, precision, and transparency, that fully justifies their "Reference" moniker.

FoilFlex interlinks and speaker Cables premium
FoilFlex sells high-quality state-of-the-art cables exclusively through a family-owned and -operated business with the aim to provide very high performance as well as great value. The perception is that High-End equals High Expense, and often, that holds true but FoilFlex aims to do things differently.

Harmonic Technology Truthlink and Pro Silway interlinks – Mini Review premium
Very silky and open treble, airier than the truthlink but the bass is still very relaxed and the cable still lacks attack and enthusiasm.

Nordost Valhalla XLR Interlink – Mini Review premium
A friend was kind enough to loan it to me for a short while, but after having heard this cable in my system I must admit to not understand why this Nordost range has an almost mythical status.
