I haven't given birth to a thread in a while and I thought it would be worth while to point this out:
I've just ordered a pair of Merlin Cables 'Chopin mark II' to go between my Fubar usb DAC and my Trends amplifier. So far I've been using some fairly cheap interconnects I bought from Radioshack a while ago, and so far they have served me well.
However, they are a little long for my current needs and I figured I could do with an uprade.
A few reasons I chose this one: looks, reviews on the cables and company, and sales price. I managed to get it at a very decent price. I get a 30 day trial too. They're said to be hand made, whatever that means... (if you see what I mean).
Anyway I'm looking forward to hooking up these suckers and having a few comparative listens. I'll keep you in check! and maybe picture too
I had a pleasant conversation with the folks there. Merlin Cable is based in England.
