Bottom Line:   
The Cardas Cross interconnect is a step above the Cardas Quadlink in the Cardas line of interconnect and speaker lines. This is a great cable in terms of soundstage and the ability to reveal details of instruments, which allows each instrument played to be heard with great detail. However it can also reveal poor recordings as well, which is something to be considered when purchasing this cable, so the quadlink could be better in this case. This cable is capable of competing with interconnects costing much more, and in terms of quality, it is a thick sturdy cable, however flexible and decent looking with its new brown color- yes, Cardas discontinued the turquoise blue for brown. Same price for XLR or RCA, however it is not cheap at $500 per meter. Yet it could be cheaper than replacing some equipment for that extra bit of that extra soundstage audiophiles are looking for.
