Bottom Line:   
First of all i have what think is the older 330-S2
interconnects( Bought New )these cables did more for my system then anything else i`ve hooked up componets included.
(Marantz mono blocks and bp202tl)
It Was the best money I ever spent on stero equipment.
so i exchanged the cables and amps for a krell 300i
and different pair of cables I put them on the record player and my albms never sounded better,I have t2 speaker wires didnt notice as much as an improvment as with the interconnects.......and different speakers now to
thanks

I think there worth a very good rating
Newer models should be as good or better.....

Bottom Line:   
This review is for the MI-330 CVTerminator Series II interconnect which is one step below the Shotgun model. This cable is different from the MI-330 Plus Series II that also comes with CVT design. The CVTerminator II lists for $600 whereas the Plus Series lists for $300.

I have used MIT T-2 and 330 Plus interconnects in the past and appreciated the audible benefits that came with them. When AA has the CVTerminator on clearance at 40% off list, I figured I should get them for a 30 days trial. For the first few weeks, I felt they were not anything more superior than the 330 Plus series which I had been using. Due to the fact I bought them on sale, I thought I might just hang on to them. That was about 3 months ago.

The two weeks breakin suggestion by MIT is quite inaccurate. It was at least two months before the benefits of the interconnects could be detected. The low level resolution that came about is almost unbelievable. I am familiar with other cables such as Kimber KCAG that was very detail but there is a distinct difference. The Kimber was detail in the sense that everything was clear, focus and somewhat top end emphasized. With Kimber KCAG, one of the cons was that vocal sibilance came as a price for all that details. Basically, you have to develop a taste for it. The MIT CVTerminator II has superb low resolution but do not have that extreme top end penalty you get with the Kimber KCAG. The MIT is quite similar to the JPS Supercondutor but the MIT is tad better. The JPS does not handle the behavior of top end extreme as well as the MIT and the MIT delivers low resolution more effectively as lower volume levels. It would be save that to say the MIT CVTerminator is somewhere between the JPS Superconductor and the Superconductor 2 (perhaps closer to the former).

The MIT CVTerminator II is a great cable if purchased at a discount. Otherwise, the JPS Superconductor or the Silver Audio Hyacinth are very good alternates. Of course, interconnects are like fine icing on the cake so your primary system components should already have perfect synergy before your money is invested in $300 plus interconnect.

Bottom Line:   
I was absolutely stunned by the improvements brought about by these cables.

I had purchased a new Parasound amp and needed to get cables to hook everything up, so I bought the 330s from Audio Advisor due to their bargain price ($150) and my good experience with the Term 2 speaker cables. I know from experience that MIT cables take a long time to break in, so I installed the 330s between my DAC and receiver to get things started (the amp wasn't due to arrive for a week).

Holy cow! I was blown away when I pushed play. The sound was totally amazing in several respects: The soundstage grew both horizontally beyond the speakers and in reverse past the wall and into the dining room behind my system. The bass got tighter, punchier and louder -- a huge improvement. The imaging got even more accurate -- I could hear movement between the vibe notes and drums. And it wasn't even broken in yet -- the improvements only expanded over the break-in period, adding even more refinement.

Needless to say, I was (and am) totally psyched. The problem was that I could no longer stand to have anything but MIT 330s anywhere in the analog signal path, so I had to buy another set to handle the stereo channels from my receiver/preamp to my amplier. MITerminator 2 cables are used for the remaining three channels from pre to amp. (An MSB digital cable is used from the HK CD changer to the MSB Link DAC.)

Other equip: Panasonic A110 DVD, CSW Ensemble speakers, Parasound HCA2205A Amp, HK Received (used as preamp).
