You guys may remember me complaining about my digital sound I was getting streaming to a cullen modded Sonos to an Audio gd dac, then analog into my receiver. One last thing I forgot to try was.....cables. Had an older pair of some Bogden Gold IC's out of the dac, wasn't all that crazy about them but my cable inventory is low at the moment. Looking for that analog sound, and having in use already was an Audio Metallurgy digital cable which to my ears bested the Blackcat Veloce slightly. So I figured what the heck, they have some new Ga-o's IC's in silver that I would like to try.
Bingo....great cable. That digital sound is gone while letting the music and details flow. I know what your thinking, silver and digital don't mesh well. In my system they do. I have Bens silver cables going to the amp and the amp likes it. Speaker cables are another story though and for another time. If you guys get a chance, and you like a cable that doesn't get in the way or color the sound, give these GA-0's a whirl. Incidently my pair was 80 bucks at .75m, so step off the high priced cable B.S. If you think 80 bucks is too much for a pair of IC'S, don't post.
Lets not start another cable debate here. This is just meant as a FYI on my own experience and a heads up to those looking for something relatively cheap and an upgrade from monoprice or bluejeans. We all like to find gear that performs well above their price point, mark these as one of them.
