i liked it so much that i wrote a review (below link)
even better news: they are also great as IC's! now i'm using them both ways: 1 as digital and 2 as IC's; as a whole they transformed my system to much higher levels of SQ
but have not had success using it as an analogue cable in my system. But, I think the issues are down to system impedances; others really like them in their systems.

very very strange indeed! did you allow them enough time to break-in?
i compared them as analogue IC's with my best Jupiter wire in cotton,
by using exactly the same RCA plugs, and the HAC's won hands down!!
clearly much better in every parameter!!
perhaps you may want to give them another try...
So you're the guy whose review I'd read ! Nice job !
I'm not so sure, however, that it's actually a little more dynamics that you're hearing (in terms of bass & detail)if it's not as "Musical or Organic sounding" as what the presentation is from the HDC. More than likely,most of us are so used to hearing digitally recorded music presented a certain way we assume certain sound characteristics as being the "true" characteristic of the recorded music.
The longer we've been away from listening to Analog music the less we recognize the slight(or not so slight) artifacts of Digital sound.
So I need to get a set(or two) of the Analog ICs, Huh ? That sounds like a good plan. Have you had any experience with the Black Discus or Tubes (Which I'm thinking of trying on the speaker cables of my Maggie 2.7QRs) ?
Thanks for the input,

you may well be totally right! i sold my vinyls 30 years ago, so i hardly remember the sound!... :)

well, since you like the HDC you will like the HAC: they follow the same lines and principles...

i've got a couple of small discus but didn't have much time, nor patience, to experiment
now i'm using their new Graphene contact enhancer to very good results!

you're very welcome!
