Thx George!
I use Audioquest Type 8 speaker cables. Their pretty good but to be honest I've never really put much $$ into speaker cable like I have other interconnects. But reading this forum and seeing others gear it has made me question some of my cabling.

Does anyone feel like Mcintosh + ML electrostats combo is a bit dark, lacking crispness and instrument separation, especially with classical music?

I am trying to figure out to move up to a higher end dedicated 2ch preamp for my MC452 paired with ML 11As or change things up to maybe Luxman on the amp side to something a bit more transparent but still having some warmth.

'instrument separation and classical music' ? from everything I've ever experienced and read there is but a very limited area within any given hall that one can experience this. I have attended numerous concerts at the Kimmel Center (Phila) and have yet to find that supposed 'sweet spot', congrats if you have !

Hah, very good point! My explanation was horrible, I meant more muddled sound of instruments together and crispness/lifelike sound of string instruments and the piano. This could very well be a preference thing and no piece of audio gets it perfect. Jazz for example sounds amazing.

I can only imagine how awesome the 2301s are, especially with the C1100!
