Bottom Line:   
This Siltech HF 8si digital cable, in my system ( aloia amps/preamps, scd-1/dodson 217 mkIId dac, vonschweikert reference vr5s),was the clear winner among the cables mentioned above. the purist audio 'dominus' comes very close but doesn't have the soundstage that the Siltech HF 8si digital does.There is no weakness in highs,mids or bass with this cable..all are pristine.the bass is deep and tight with more of a presence then all but the 'dominus' which is on a par with the Siltech HF 8si. the 'dominus' may have a quieter backgound then the Siltech but not by much.you can hear further into the music.brass pieces are never bright or etched.vocals are palpable.transparency is amazing.this is not an inexpensive cable,obviously,but used with a system that is already great,it just might be the last tweak you need.

Bottom Line:   
This Siltech HF 8si is improving as I listen to it more. My main reference pieces of music are exhibiting subtle changes as time passes.

This cable has added a whole new sense of space. Echoes from room surroundings are now clearly audible, resonances sound more real (especially from strings, woodwind and acoustic material) and the sound is clean without harshness or clinicality. Bass heavy tracks have had the boom cleaned up, focused rather than tightened. It has also introduced the subtleties of the performer, breathing and finger movements on the fretboard are now audible for example. You can sense the position of the instruments in terms of depth rather than just left to right.Excellent speed great detailed

All in all, it is much more involving and it is still getting better. An EXCELLENT piece of cable. I felt the need to vote again since I couldn't vote 6 stars.LOL(HIGHLY RECOMMENDED)

This digital cable is very hot. It sounds better as Kimber AGDL, Burmester Silver Cable, Mogami, Groneberg. The best digital cable i have heard at this time. It sound very perfect.
