    A friend of mine has a Rotel RSX-972 that will be connecting to a Rotel RCC-955 CD changer. He's looking at several interconnects and is looking for opinions. He is using Klipsch speakers, and would like to avoid an overly bright interconnect. He's hoping for a more warm or neutral interconnect. Here are the ones that he's looking at:

    Straightwire Encore II
    Straightwire Rhapsody II Silver Serpent Audio Interconnects
    Cardas Golden Cross Interconnect
    Cardas Quadlink-Five C Interconnect
    Harmonic Technologies Truth-Link
    Harmonic Technologies Precision-Link

    Any comments on which one is the best for his setup?

    assuming you could hear it, the one with the highest capacitance/ft. however it'd have to be one hell of a capacitance before any audibly significant roll-off of the high end were to occur. highest capacitance that I know of are the alpha-goertz interconnects. they're like a capacitor that's been unrolled.
    if he considers his system is bright, he either should work on his room and consider treatments or get different speakers.
