    Bottom Line:   
    I bought a secondhand AudioQuest 36V interconnect cable 3 weeks ago and compare it with the NBS liquid filled cable placed between the CDP & peramp. My reaction is to remove the NBS cables and replaced them between the peramp and the 300B Tube power amp., rehearing all by CDs. For the reasons, I don't need to repeat other experts' review, I can only agree with all those points they listed!

    Bottom Line:   
    I wanted to purchase a cable whose performance would surpass a Better Cables Silver Serpent without having to shell out a load of cash. After reading some of the reviews here I gave the Jaguar a try and I was pleasantly surprised by the results.

    This cable provides a good deal more detail than the SS and the overall sound is very pleasant. As other reviews note, the highs can be a little edgy, but its not that annoying.

    Audioquest promotes its Dielectric-Bias system which generates a shielding electrostatic field around the conductors. They claim that it provides unexpected detail and dynamic contrast. I concur with their statements.

    It is a significant step better than the passive Better Cable SSs.

    Bottom Line:   
    This cable sounds very dynamic with an organic sound, the highs are always in control and do not tend to sound harsh.
    Bass response and extension is great, very balanced.
    It excells in tranparancy in lows and mids.
    I think there ain't anything that this cable does really wrong,
    though there are faster sounding cables, or cables that produce softer high frequenties.

    Bottom Line:   
    Prior to using the AQ Jaguar, I was using cryo'd Vampire wire CCCII interconnects between my CDP and preamp and between preamp and amp (which are Marantz CC4300, Tube Audio Design TAD-150 and Cayin TA-30, respectively). The sound from these cables are very involving with excellent midrange in particular. The treble was very slightly soft, without being boring.

    I found two 0.5M Jaguars at a bargain price of $105 each on eBay and decided to give them a try, since I have had awesome experience with AudioQuest's products before (NRG-2 power cords and CV-4.2 (with 48v DBS speaker cables) and I have complete faith in them.

    My initial impression was excellent treble which was not rolled of, but musical with great tone, and transparency which allowed delicate notes to emerge. There was slight graininess so I waited a few days before doing any serious evaluation.

    After about three weeks of use, with the 36V DBS hooked up, I did my A/B with the previous Vampire CCCII ICs. The AQ Jaguars were considerably better with:
    * More delicate and musical tone
    * A lot of detail, hall/venue sound and nuance
    * Slightly wider soundstage and there's better image separation
    * The best piano tone iI've ever heard
    * Astonishing good cymbal decay is awesome
    * Nice organic sound
    * Good bass definition, weight and slam

    In remeber feeling there was actually too much detail, but I quickly got used to it and began to enjoy the transparecy and live feeling with concert music. These cables simply disappear, enabling you to simply sit back and enjoy the music.

    I feel AudioQuest's products are excellent value. Their pricing is at the sweetspot in their categories, and their prices always match the performance as you go up their product line.
