I have on loan since last night atm a 1.5m pair of the KLEI gZero6 IC and a 2m pair of the KLEI gZero10 IC.

The KLEI gZero10 IC are on their way down to Steven early next week.

I had in my 2 channel system (Wadia/Zen clock cd transport i2s, Kdac, Marios EL34 amp) a pair of $800 IC's which I considered to be very good. The 6's literally blew them away. It has been said the 10's are better again than the 6's but I couldn't imagine it. But I put the 10's in and yep they were better again.
The 6's reminded me of the improvement in going from SPDIF to I2S but possibly even more so. Much smear was removed and more purity was allowed through. My system has often sounded a bit dark, slow, and muddy but the 6's tightened things up and sped things up somewhat.

The 10's had the same refinements of the 6's with a bit of extra life and punch.

These cables have helped my system out with its deficiencies for sure but how they will go in a system which is finely tuned and super balanced with no obvious deficiencies like Stevens setup will be interesting.

Recently in Melbourne I heard a very nice pair of Shunyata IC's irradicate somewhat some problems in a freinds a system. Even though the limitations and deficiencies on my system were completely different to the system I heard in Melbourne the end result of these IC's n my system reminded me of that .

onthebeach, what $800 ICs were the gZero6 ICs better than...

Now theres a thought, folk will make the time if they are committed and make excuses when they are not. (IMV-SNA)
We all like different things so lets all agree to disagree and if any common ground is found then worship it.  Mine is the KD hence being present on this forum.

But, I didn't think it was all about the destination; I thought it was about enjoying your journey! :)

To be fair though he has got plenty to do....theres Peter Paul & Mary and some Beatles and Andrea Bocelli and some Vivaldi Four Seasons and the Voice Squad and some Elvis and Buddy Holly and Peggy Lee...the list is endless. Very tiring work. Much of it needs to be diligently done after most of us are fast asleep.

Its a tough life alright so dont pick on him Graham & Mario. You and me have got it easy working all week in comparison :'(.

He's doing what he loves compared to me (and maybe Graham and Mario) who has to put up with all the BS at work and not to mention bullying, unfair treatment, rude clients, etc etc.

Rudeness, insanity you name its all there with some of Public Service work. I know of one suicide and the others excessive drinking ultimately claimed his life.

I am actually amazed how you can put up with all that for years Paul! No doubt your family is a massive support and also beautiful music through your system (and youtubing!). I haven't even been here for one year but I can't stand it anymore, I gotta move, I just don't want to be like those people you mentioned. Hurting themselves and ultimately wasting their lives  >:(  Oh well, at least whenever I finish work and go home I can get away from those nasty people and enjoy my time a bit with my system (thanks for lending me the JBL and letting me know about the 45 amp). So yeah, start working Steve and let us know the verdict of the cable!

We need you to stay around for a long....long time! So, please take care of yourself mate...

Yeah sorry pretty dumb thing to say. Feeling a bit morose today as I just discovered this afternoon that one of my bestest audio buddies
in the States died last week. Never experienced finding out a good friend had passed by the net before. RIP Larry Mellette.

Yea I know what you mean, I had my great sounding TDA1541A S2 chip die a few years ago. It took me a long time to get over it.
