Bottom Line:   
That's not a good cable that is really a big disappointment. Silverstreak is a much better cable but really good Kimber cables are Select series.
Do not waste your time and money with medium priced cables!

Bottom Line:   
I am now a believer that interconnects ARE components. So don't be afraid to pay for a set of interconnects as you would a component. Let me state at this point, that I am somewhat broke and have a strange view of priority. Unless you count taking yourself and your enjoyment of audio as a priority as well. As I see the order of things (under your control). The Souce is most important. It determines what your make of the disc/record/dvd. Second the Interconnects which hopefully will transmit your source information without repress. Third is the Pre-Amp, of which if your into neutrality like me, you want the preamp to do no more than what the knobs on the front say they do. Fourth is the Amp, also it shoud only do what it is labeled to do, amplify. Then speakers last. Too bad those are the fun part. But that's just because that the hand that feeds us. Kinda like how everyone loves moms cooking, but wasn't it dad who worked to buy the food. Anyways, back to the Kimber Hero's. All I can ever ask of an interconnect is to be open. Open from 5hz to 45khz. I feel that since I've upgraded to these cables on my CD player alone a deeper and broader dimension to the music has been revealed. My Vandersteens are rated down to 38hz but until now I don't think they ever received that sort of frequency clearly enough. If I can only say this has been a learning experience that was detailed right in front of me all my life, so how could I be so skeptical. A good pass on the football field, UPS, and Mercedes have all shown over the years that there is a lot to, how IT gets there.

Bottom Line:   
The Kimber Hero interconnects are very different from almost all cables,even in the $100-150 price range. Bass is very tight and unlike with other cables it is easy to distinguish bass guitar and drums without just hearing a muddy mixture of the two. The frequency response is very clean but this cable is not quite as transparent as the other two premium cables I own. Initially the upper treble is practically nonexistent, but after a break-in of a few hundred hours the treble is almost as good as the diamondback. Midrange is clean and unaccentuated.
I tried this cable in various parts of my system. The Hero shines though when it is connected from the CD player to the preamp. No other cable I have used provides clean, fast and tight bass response, making it easy to hear bass guitar and drums as separate. Tones are very precise, which is a characteristic few cables have.
The only weakness is a very slight muffling, which you can offset by using more transparent interconnects from the preamp to the amp.
Overall, the Hero is a very musical cable. Very easy to listen to and enough to be involving. Bass response and neutrality strengths far outweigh the weaknesses.

Bottom Line:   
My system consists of a NAD T752 AV receiver NAD C541 CDP and Dynaudio Audience 42's and Pioneer DVD player. I started with a set of $15 acoustic research interconnects from Best Buy and entry level monster speaker wire for my C541.

After having the system for over a year and a half I decided to see what the cable fuss was all about first hand.I bought some Monster reference Z-2 speaker cables to start out with and noticed a significant improvement in sound. I ending up keeping them. I then bought for $279 the Monster Z200i interconnect and noticable a substantial difference in sound quality but the upper midrange was just a bit too much for me. Next I bought a set of 2meter Kimber Hero's which was exactly the sound I was looking for. The cables are a bit on the cool side but match well with my warm NAD and Dyn's. Imaging dramatically improved even compared to the monster Z200i's. It really unlocked the detail and widened the soundstage. This cable really brings out the best in warmer systems. The Hero's bring out a holographic imaging that is astonishing. The highs are not quite as smooth and extended as the Monster Z200i's but they do everything else better. Also, they were $100 bucks cheaper.
