But your system is disassembled, not too worry and all good  :)
I'm very happy to check them out, when the system is back up and running in its new home, if the demo 10's are still around in due course?

It does take me a bit of time to dial the system in to a new room.  We'll see.
It's all about the music,, not the equipment.

onthebeach, it must be something relatively minor or simple   :)  Minor confusion and just a bit of time ... all good  :)

I remember you posting that they weren't sufficiently burned in when you listened to them but you still liked them very much, even more than the gZero6 ICs ... so, all good  :)

Have you listened to another pair of gZero10 ICs since then?

Hey Ping
Yes on my system the 10's were clearly better but my system isnt the quality of SG's system. I've just bought a pair of used KL 80's which were a prototype that Rawl had in his system for quite sometime. Again they sound much better than the 10's in my system although I havent had much time with them yet.

Guys months ago i tied the standard KLEI gZero6 IC and as stated earlier... a great cable, great clarity, detail, amazing lack of noise, great warmth, and musicality.    One small problem for me was a slight sameness to timbre.    I am now trying the new more expensive 2 meter pair KLEI gZero10 IC interconnects.    The trouble is these are a prototypes pair and not the same as the model sold on his web site.    This pair does not seem to work well with my system, so I will get the new production model sold on there web site and try again.
stevenvalve, when will you be receiving the production KLEI gZero10 ICs  :)

I had a good listen to most of the expensive Louis Eichmann interconnect cables at the get together, and at the same time returned my loan set to check if they had any problems, and indeed they sure did, they just did not sound right here, and on hearing them Keith Eichmann feels they are faulty. The interesting thing about Keith's interconnect cables is they have a sound, lets call it the Eichmann sound. The different models do have a house sound, and the unique ability to make average systems shine, they are a cable that will please, and very few will be disappointed. I must say they have a lot to like particularly warmth, liquidity, blackness, and the lack of grain that helps to promote a very low noise floor, the latter in particular is what sets them apart from others, how it manages this is open for debate.

Incidentally, what do you folks recommend for chassis mount (i.e., female) RCA connectors? I'm surprised that KLE isn't making them... are the ETI ones still favoured?

Hi rab,

WBT 0210-Cu RCA "Next Gen" is favoured (see http://www.partsconnexion.com/product9725.html). For the budget conscious, the ETI (see http://www.partsconnexion.com/product1878.html) is a great option.

Cheers,
Will

Thanks Will. For the even more budget conscious, has anyone tried the CMC 805F? Allegedly gold plated copper @ US$13 per pair.
