I know they've hooked with Mogami out of Japan (I use Mogami from Worlds Best Cables). Mogami has made it clear that the difference in many cables are the added coloration. They reject this idea to give a user a neutral sound. I'm not sure there's a reason to rate cables because top quality comes in all prices and "Colors". I like mine without color.
