    I recently picked up a pair of AQ Bedrocks from a fellow Polkie.
    I already own a pair of AQ CV-6's. So, how does it compare?
    To start off with, I'm using a NOS dac with an Audio Experience
    tube preamp and ARC vt-60 tube amp. I/C's are Kimber Hero's.
    The current main speakers are ProAc studio 125's. They sounded
    a bit laid back, with a bit of reccessed mids. Overall, though, a
    good set of speakers. The Bedrocks were a pretty good deal, so
    I took the plunge. They were set up with spades. Too damn big!
    I had to cut off the amp end, and put on a smaller set of silver AQ
    spades from a local dealer's stock. I was surprized he also had the
    heavy duty red and black heat shrink ends from AQ, too.
    Down to business. The cable has a bit more copper going on than the
    older set ov CV-6's. And a different design.
    The effect was it made everything sound more forward, and brought
    out more mid-range. Maybe a bit too much of both. I'm going to let
    it cook a while more. Pulling the speakers out from the wall a couple
    more inches seems to bring it more back to where it needs to be.
    The Bedrocks are a good bang for the buck set of cables. The prices
    they sell for here at CP makes they a good choice for a lot of systems.
    If your system was already a bit forward, you may want to try something
    else. But with my setup, they seem to work very well. In about a month
    I'll have to decide to stand pat or move to a set of Kimber 8tc.
    Either way, the Bedrocks were well worth trying.

    I'm running Bedrocks now,and have always wondered how they would compare to some Kimber cables...You're right on the "foward" presentation...but they bring out a lot of detail that I like...with tubes in the mix,the Bedrocks are certainly not too bright or overwhelming...

    I think It's time to go fish. The CV-6 and Bedrocks are not going to cut it.
    The CV-6 is too laid back, the Bedrocks are too forward. Time for a just right cable.

    Let us know what Kimber brings to the table if that's the route you choose.
