If anyone is looking for some kickass IC's these Gabriel Gold Rapture V3's are currently being offered for auction on Audiogon with a reserve of $199 and chances are you'll get them for close to that. I got mine for $199 and the next pair went for $300. Retail is around $900. They use a silver/gold alloy for the conductors and extreme build quality. Best I've had to date over the past 15 yrs in my self-imposed sub-$600 limit on IC's.
