OK, putting on flame suit...and...
I was dorking around with some gear and forgot where I put my cable box. So, in a fit of expediency, I went to OSH and grabbed a pair of Phillips M62776 interconnects, and, dang...
...they sound pretty sweet.
They strike me along a similar vein as a PS 1, with no real sins of commission, so to speak, and they are only 12 dineros.
I am shocked.
They have good grip and felxibility and for now, I am using a pair between my amp/preamp and from the digital playa to the preamp.
They are so cheap, I thought I'd see if anyone else wants to come out and play.
