Howard - I know that you used to be quite keen on the Stereovox range but they are perhaps more expensive than the equivalent LAT?
First, I've no idea if Stereovox are still in business. I seem to recall they might have changed their trading name. Anyway in answer to your question; no, not particularly. My Stereovox RCA interconnects have a 'bite' and grip that I rather like in some systems. It compensates for my impaired (due to age) hearing. The LAT 'characteristic' is generally more natural. slightly less 'exciting' but for many, less fatiguing over an extended period of time.
