At the moment I use two analog interconnects - Blue Jeans Cable LC-1 and Acoustic Zen Matrix Reference II.
Blue Jeans sounds in my system quite decent. It gives me dynamic, full-bodied sound, but a bit grainy and tones are not as nice as in my Acoustic Zen.
Acoustic Zen was my upgrade from BJC. It is smooth, provides more space, better soundstage, beautiful tones, more extention in bass and highs. It's musical, too! Unfortunately in my system this cable made mids (especially vocals) almost disappear! It's such a shame as I like almost everything about this cable. Well, maybe it could also have more resolution.
As BJC and AZ don't give me the sound I am looking for, I decided to look further. I've gone through lots of reviews and impressions of cables and finally come across Zu Mission interconnect which is within my budget (<500$) and looks promising.
Could you please tell me what the differences between Zu Mission and Acoustic Zen or BJC are? What is the sound characteristics of Zu Mission interconnect?
I'd appreciate your help as in my country I am not able to borrow too many cables for a trial.
