I just picked up a used 59Txi and will be pairing it with my DV-79Avi player via i.link. For those doing this combination, have you found that using a high-end i.link cable improves the sound over a $10 cable?
My experience has been that USB cables and digital coax cables make a difference. I've tried MIT Shotgun Digital, Virtual Dynamics Master LE 2.0, and others, and they open up the sound stage, increase detail, and extend frequency response.
Some i.link cables I've been looking at include Audioquest 1394-3 ($150), Acrolink Mexcel ($725), Siltech ($1050). Locus Design and Ridge Street Audio are supposed to have one soon. I realize there is a point of diminishing returns, so I would like to stay under $300.
Any recommendations? Please no Monster or RatShak - those are not high end!
