I have also been experimenting with the Dueland DCA16GA tinned copper wire made up as interconnects (unshielded in my case) by Parts ConneXion. Used between my Modwright Sony 5400ES and Pathos TT RR with Merlin VSM speakers and no BAM the Dueland are more natural sounding and musical than my $3000 per 1M Klee Acoustics interconnects. The Dueland also work well on the back end of the BAM with the Klee interconnects in front. Since all of the online reports on this wire have been on their use with super high efficiency (96db+) speakers their performance with less efficient speakers has been a question mark. Given the sound quality I am getting with 89 db Merlin VSM mme's, that doesn't appear to be an issue.
For me break-in was not complete even with 200 hours of listening and system enhancement cd's. However 48 hours on the Fry Baby (Hagerman Labs) cable break-in device made a dramatic improvement.
Exactly and a big +1 for the Hagerman FryBaby. Considering the FB costs less than most of the IC's discussed here, it's amazing that more haven't bought into this little device. It lets you burn in IC's more effectively than break-in CD's or hundreds( maybe thousands) of hours playing time.
