Bottom Line:   
I've got this speaker cable from ebay out of curiousity on how VDH cables wound sound like since they are quite cheap. Compared to by Nordost Blue Heavens, the Magnums sounded like trash -bass was loose and muddy, midrange bloated and the highs was shut-in. I gave it about 2 weeks burn-in and the results were the same. I was very disappointed with this cable apart.

I would not use this cable with a system costing $2,000 and above. For a sub-$1,000 rig that requires a warm sounding cable to tame some harshness and/or brightness in the treble, the VDH Magnum Hybrid may be the ticket. Otherwise, look elsewhere. I would recommend the Kimber 8TC which will trounce the VDH Magnum in all aspects at a similiar price.

i have used this cable with solid state & tube amps , electrostatic and dome cone speakers found their performance to be constant.
i really like these cables for the price this side of the revolution and revelations. could say im a bit biased towards vdh cables.

Bottom Line:   
This is a fantastic cable that really makes the music come to life. It really depends on your components and quality of interconnects, power cords, etc. These cables far excel over other cables I've tried over the past year and I highly recommend them. If you want mids and highs that are silky smooth with extended bass - these cables are really worth a try. I'd recommend using the VDH D102 MK III interconnects with these. Also, the Absolute Power Cord is terrific (can be obtained on Audiogon for $50).

Bottom Line:   
I use the vdH Magnum Hybrid.
This cable can, depending to your other equipment, be an absolute mismatch, therefore listen to it carefully before buying. In my case, I guessed this cable would be the right one and I was lucky. Also I trusted vdH's good reputation in cables and I was not disappointed by it.
It is a great, impressive looking cable, very solid built but therefore it's not easy to fix the connectors properly to it.
In connection with my tube amplifiers, the vdH Magnum Hybrid produces an outstanding, clear, sweet and very neutral sound with a wide and deep soundstage. The bass is deep, tight and controlled, mids are warm and real sounding and the highs are crystal clear without beeing to bright.

My Equipment:
Cayin SC 6L SE-tupe pre
Cayin 9021 DEX SE-tube mains
Cary Audio CD303 CD-player
B&W CDM 1 SE speakers

Bottom Line:   
A nice cable to start with and good "looks", the size of a firm chocolate bar ;-)
Wins from most Monster and Kimber cables but loses from Siltech and MIT. Not suitable for systems above $5000
