Kimber Silver, Hybrid, or Copper....preference?
I agree with Nick778 it is system dependent. The new copper versions KS 1116, KS 1016 matched with the 3033 gives my system a relaxed, yet musical sound without losing dynamics, or details. My next choice would be the hybrid. The all silver is in ...

Cardas ICs are too warm for Tube amp
I updated/upgraded my system sometime time ago. New McIntosh amps, preamp, digital and speakers. At the time and for a long time I used all Cardas Golden Reference and my experince was too much of a good thing. The system became dark, slow, and un...
