    Agree with @Blake , Kimber D60 is good cable. I can recommend "Chord Epic" cable as well (wchich is in the same price range as Kimber D60). Now for Stealth cables. They are indeed exceptional and crazy expensive. I had the chance to auditioned some Stealth cables at local distributor setup...

Mainly use as USB to AES/EBU conversion from Aurender N100H to Simaudio Moon 380D DSD dac. Just first impression (right out of the box, after just one hour of listening): - impressive...
