Re: Mixing interconnects
It OK to do if you need to but when you see programs from the likes of Transparent where they will let you trade in your old stuff to get a complete Transparent system - it starts to make sense to use all one brand.
To me - all cables have a "sound" to them thus your system gets better when you can match that sound in your audio chain.
For example: you might plug in your HD DVD player's 5.1 input with Cardas but use Kimber for the amp to preamp and speaker connections. I see nothing wrong with that.
