Help me pick out some cables

I have some MIT EXP 1 cables coming from endershadow but need a few more. Got some picked out on ebay and wondering if anybody has used any of these products or know if they are junk. These are all rca style and Im wanting to do some cable rolling. Which would work best for phono?

Re: Help me pick out some cables

I have used Audioquest King Cobra. Good solid cables. Talk to HelicopterpilotDoug. I recently auditioned some of his cables and they offer great performance at a very reasonable price.

X2 on Doug's cables. I don't think it's possible to buy a better cable for the $$$. Quality build, terrific sound, super reputable guy!

Re: Help me pick out some cables

If you get some of Doug's ic's I would be very interested in the results myself as I am getting some speaker cables from him and was/am debating his interconnects as well.

Doug's interconnects are excellet. Nice clean transparent sound. When I had them in my system the top end was more extended than with my Audioquest Columbia's.

Re: Help me pick out some cables

I would strongly suggest that you stick with one brand for all your cables and stay within the same series. That said, I suggest MIT's Shotgun series.

A doctrine fostered by a delusional, illogical minority and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.
