Sorry.... forgot completely to introduce myself.
As already said on the Mytek thread, I've been reading this forum for quite some time now but hadn't ever participated.
Congratulations for this great forum. It's been a ride reading it.
Thank you for the warm welcome.
Posting a final followup on my experience with the Canare L-4E6S now that they have been in my system for a while. I gotta say that I am totally happy with these cables and have not missed the much more expensive, 99.99999999999999999999999999999999999999% pure silver, shorter balanced cables they replaced. As I think back on the money spent on the other cables I'm kinda pissed at myself now. Live and learn I guess!
Because of my luck with these budget cables I have decided to revisit other areas of my system cabling that are currently occupied with exotic cable types. I am going to start with my speaker cables next and have already placed an order for a set of Mogami 3104 Deluxe cables offered by Takefiveaudio.com to see how they fare in a head to head comparison of my current brand.
Thanks again for everyone's advise on trying these less expensive options as it has been an eye opening experience to say the least.
I tried the Mogami xlr cable recommend here. It is very good. I preferred it to the much more expensive Harmonic tech Magic interconnect.
It did not sound better than my Nordost Tyr ic, unfortunately and that is rca.
Bottom line the Mogami is an absolute bargain.

Has anyone tried the Mogami up against the vovox?
On gearslutz several users have claimed superiority of the vovox over the Mogami...
On of these days I'm buying a pair of Mogami XLR just to A/B it against my vovox s link and vovox sonorus.
Hi I'm a new member first post.
I use Mogami snake cable with Neutrik black/gold XLR connectors from my processor to my amps. It's a custom made 16 ft long 7 channel snake cable.
I absolutely love this cable and I am a big fan of Mogami cable, I have also made my own speaker cables with Mogami 2921 quad cable which I love as well. I highly recommend Mogami wire and feel it is the best I've used both in wire and sound quality.
Here is a pic of Mogami snake cable (this one's not mine but it's very similar)
Also here is a pic of my speaker cables I made, this is before the bananas were installed. I used GLS locking bananas (bi-wired).
Oh yes, Belkin took a shot at high end cables. They made some very nice speaker cable that was all PCOCC in construction, for ridiculously low prices. 5 9's or better copper, that was PCOCC= 'Perfect crystal ohno continuous Cast' copper, which is as good as it gets, for copper.
It never caught on, so they got out of the market. Lots of it ended up on ebay at ridiculous prices.
