B.M.C. MonoS Phono Cable & Origin Live Silver Hybrid 2-S Phono Cable

B.M.C. Audio is a familiar name here at 10 Audio. Their wonderful MCCI Signature phono preamplifier, in various iterations, has been a reference for several years. Their new MonoS cables are based on Mono crystal OCC (Ohno Continuous Casting) Silver conductors:  MonoS.
