Hi All

I need to pick between the Van den Hul CS122 (apparently laid back/soft sounding)
or QED Silver Anniversary (more open sounding in high frequency ?)

My current system:

NAD 521i BEE cd player
NAD C422 tuner
Rotel 10-series Pre & Power amps
QUAD 12L speakers
REL Q50 sub
Van den Hul interconnects

Please advise on best option for this setup. Music taste is varied (not hard rock). Many thanks.

Never choose one without auditioning it in your system. Even if I owned exactly the same components you do and had tried both cables extensively, my choice may not be yours. I didn't listen in your environment with your ears. Audition them in your system. If your retailer won't lend you cables, my advice would be to find another retailer. Good luck! Let us know how it turns out.
