Hi Len,
I've read up on it on the internet. The amp/pre-amp manual's make the same 
arguments in favour as you and the net.
However, I can't find a system locally to see if I can actually hear the 
difference. To buy these cables in Calgary, I'll have to have them custom 
made and the price per cable is Leica like... and I need nine of them.
