I recently purchased a Sony 555ES SACD player. I have been using the cables included with the box and needless to say they are horrible. I have mainly Transparent brand cables in my system, however, their cheapest audio analog interconnect is $75 per pair. It hurts to think I would have to spend $225 on three pairs of cables when I don't listen to SACDs that much. I went to another dealer that carries MIT cables and the salesperson swears that they are just as good as transparent, if not better or cheaper. He said I could bring in some of my Transparent cables (especially their $300 mid-level digital audio cable) and compare with the equivalent MIT models. I am going to do the comparison in the near future, however, I wanted to know if there was validity in what the salesperson was claiming. What do you guys feel about Transparent vs. MIT ?
