I would recommend shipping it off. Fredrik listened to at least 40 solders to find the most musical and also determined the precise tip temperature it should be soldered at. Fredrik has certified four people besides himself to do soldering up to Lejonklou specs and supplied them with the proper solder. They are myself, Marco and a person each in the UK and Indonesia (I believe Handoku and Chris but I'm not sure). All have had their soldering stations tested to assure they are soldering at the right temperature as they can vary a bit from unit to unit in indicated temperature (at least as much as 8°C). So you will get the most performance by having it done by one of them.

Thanks for input. Certainly sounds like one should go for the gold standard in order to never (?) have to worry about speaker cables again.

I know I know... but I can address that in due time since, to the best of my understanding, the best interconnects are not out of production.

If we talk about Linn Silver IC, there are old and new, According "forum" old one (out of production) is better, with better wire and connector on it ... :)

Perfect! It's actually fun to search for somewhat elusive products...
