Folsom, the Mogami cables all sound different, depending on model number and topology. The shrillest sounding cables i have heard, and still own are Swedish Supra made of tinned copper, unnatural metallic treble, used on somewhat dull electrostatic speakers at the time. I also own IC's made of Duelund silver and copper cables, these are also to colored for my taste.Maybe I'll get the itch to make two demo sets for him to try... We'll see. They're awfully long runs IIRC; and XLR only amps I think?
Mogami is on the shrill side to me. I guess with super flat sounding recent music maybe it's better, but really you can't save that - it's going to sound mediocre no matter what, AFAIK.
