Bottom Line:   
When I began investigating digital cables, I thought
there would be little, if any, sonic differences between
them. However, after auditioning various models, my
assumption was thrown out the window. The Transparent
Audio Reference AES/EBU 110 Ohm Digital Link ended-up being
the one that outshone the rest. Using it in conjunction
with a reference quality system produces magnificent
results. Comparing it to more modestly priced digital
interconnects, the sound is more realistic and

Music, whether pop, classical, or jazz, when played
through the Reference Link, is both natural, lyrical, and
dynamic. Imaging is holographic, providing a wonderful
feeling of tranparency and presence. Resolution is also
outstanding revealing subtle details: like the breath and
key sounds from a saxophone, or the intricate sounds of
the key action of a piano.

While the cost is high, one should consider the purchase
of a digital cable to be an integral component of a high
quality digital system. I recommend trying several to
convince yourself.
