Thanks Glenfihi and Sgr, it seems to have taken forever to get it where I wanted it. Now I can relax and just enjoy the music. HT isn't too bad either!

That Apex interconncet was and eye opener on music. It was a must have after I borrowed it from the Cable Co. I have been fooling around with some different power cables. It makes no sense but they can make such a huge difference. I do love the McIntosh Cd player. It just blew my Cary away. And I thought alot of the Cary. With all the Mac gear together they have really come together as a group. You always here "system syngery" now I can here what they mean. Eventually I will be looking for new speaker cables. May be hard, I have fairly long runs and it makes it hard to borrow them. But Damn I love the McIntosh gear. Worth every penny!

Sorry have not been on in a while. I am running a Synergistic Reasearch Acoustic Refrence balanced between the Cary and the Mac preamp. Nordost Frey from pre to power amp. Going to switch it. Just bought new speakers. Martin Logan Spire's. Never liked the Logans before untill I heard these. Had to have them.

I actually switched away from the Audioquest to the Nordost with the Arcam. The Nordost was smoother with the Arcam Gear with more detail. Just a personal choice really. I will tell you that with the Mac gear. ABing between the two Red Dawn and the Acoustic Refrence the Nordost hangs in there very well. Esp with the price difference. 300 to 2600 dollars. was suprising. I really want a Tyr but can't swing it. I am going to sell a pair of 4 meter shotgun Red Dawn speaker cables if you are looking. Was using them to drive the lower cabinets of the Hyperions. The Logans don't recommend biamping because they have a built in amp for the woofers.

Thanks

With my Mac gear they sound great. Had them with Arcam gear and had to switch to Audioquest. I have Synergistic Research Acoustic Reference between my Cary cd player and my Mac C-2200 preamp. Not sure if I like it or not. One thing that was amazing is that I put up my 300. dollar nordorst red dawn up against my 2600 dollar acoustic refrence and the red dawn was very good didnt' beat it but it hung in there. I was very suprised. I would like to get a Nordost Tyr from cd to preamp and get another Frey so I have the same cables running my front pair of speakers.(i am biamping the fronts one frey one heimdall). The heimdall is a great cable too. smooth and detailed. I think they give you alot for your money. that being said they are not cheap but you get more that you pay for.
