Bottom Line:   
Bought this cable in bulk form just to try out the sound of PC-OCC (Pure Crystal by Ohno Continuous Cast) on the cheap. Previously I was using DH Labs T14 and Q10 in external bi-wire configuration with my Quad 22Ls.

I must say that the hype associated with OCC copper is pretty accurate. Due to lack of crystal grain boundaries, all the hash associated with regular oxygen free copper is removed giving silky smooth and hyper detailed sound, without adding harshness. The sound is timberally more accurate than the DHLabs Q10 and it does a better job of articulating the midrange than the Q10. Mid bass is very controlled, although it looses some of the punch the Q10 has.

There is a very slight and barely noticeable high-frequency roll off compared with DHLabs T14. This may simply be due to the fact that there is no HF glare (possibly added by the silver in the T14). Cymbals otherwise sound pretty accurate.

I am now using the Belkin PureAv only for my LF terminals with T14 going to HF (in external biwire configuration). This combination works very well in my setup for now.

I am looking to upgrade to one of those AudioQuest DBS cables (CV-4 or CV-6) which, by all accounts, removes veiling altogether.
