    Yeah, now we can rag you about your DAC costing twice as much as your speakers.

    The only forum member who has interconnects named after his local MLB team. What a great fan! :D
    I doubt they'll ever have any interconnect called a Padre though :(

    I have my doubts that these will do any better than the Copperheads, but I'll test my theory.

    I don't see how adding an extra wire and putting a different color sleeve on a cable improves it---we shall see. Both use 21awg perfect surface copper conductors that are solid core, so it's a matter of design approach between these 2.

    More to come....

    Steven, the check is in the mail.
    I am interested in hearing your thoughts as well so keep the copperheads for several days after you get your diamondbacks and do an A/B test for us....someone was mentioning that they couldn't hear the difference between copperheads and a slightly lower grade AQ cables....can't remember the name. I am curious to know whether this will apply to the diamondbacks and copperheads as well....

    I can still get your sets out fast, I have more Copperheads around here...I have serious doubts the differences will justify the cost difference.
