Bottom Line:   
This pricey cable is not worth the money it costs. Music comes out dull. Highs and bass are poor. It would like to be smooth and natural, but it just cuts out frequencies. Completely veiled or rolled off highs and bass. Period.
Tonight I auditioned Supra DAC XLR (€ 100) and I heard true music again. Incredible.

Bottom Line:   
Huge improvement in all the spectrum when replaced monster speaker cables with Super bicable speaker. Extended and deep bass, Mid-range less analytic and more 'tubee'than monster listenning.

Bottom Line:   
This review is for the Transparent Balanced Music Link Super XL.

This BMLSXL replaced the non-balanced Transparent Music Link Super XL between my Krell KRC-3 preamp and Mark Levinson 331 power amp. The difference is dramatic, as if the cable disappeared from the system. The entire spectrum is more open and natural, transparency and resolution is 30% better, dynamic contrast is wider, bass is cleaner and more rhythmic, and harmonic accuracy and musicality is markedly improved.

For those with preamps and power amps with "well designed" balanced in/outputs, this cable gives you so much improvement over the RCA version that I strongly recommend you to loan a pair from your local Transparent dealer and hear for yourself.

Bottom Line:   
I replaced my Monster Cable interconnects (I forget which model) with Kimber PBJ, then I upgraded to MIT Terminator IIs which I really liked and sounded great with my system. On the advise of Bill Hardy (Bill Hardy Stereo, Lexington,KY in the Chevy Chase Area), I upgraded to Transparent 100s, which were WAY better than the MITs (less harsh, better bass). The move from Transparent 100s to the Music Link Supers is not so much a qualitative change, as the MIT to Transparent switch, but a quantative one...more of a good thing.
These would be the very thing for bright, etched sounding solid state electronics, although my system is all tube pre and post except for solid state subwoofer amps, and the Transparent cables are just great! I got 'em cheap (if you can call $350/pr cheap) because they were an odd 1.5M length and no one else wanted them. I would not trade them for anything, but try before you buy. Find a great dealer like I did, it is so much easier that way.
