You'd need to see my thread for the whole story, but this is not me going after hype. This is the result of an in-home test where I swapped out one interconnect for another one and the difference in sound wasn't subtle. The low frequencies filled in and there was more weight to the sound. This was Transparent MusicLink Plus (now just "Plus") replacing Kimber Hero on my BD player. The Transparent's not cheap—$400 for a 1m pair—but I'm wondering whether to take the plunge. The next model down is MusicLink, at $200/1m pair. I want to investigate if there's a big difference between the two, maybe the cheaper cable will be almost as good; but, it's a lighter gauge. Before I go for either of them, I'm going to put the system back as it was to see what I think of the Kimber again. The Plus is, I believe, a heavier gauge than the Hero also, so that's a factor for sure.

I don't believe all the hype either. But I believe what I heard here yesterday.

I've heard and read a lot of good things about Isotek. I watched their videos for Audio Advisor and enjoyed them. I haven't looked at their power cords specifically, though. I already have the lower-end Wireworld cords mostly, and will probably go that route.
