I'm considering ordering some of this and some very high end rca plugs from Sonic Craft but I really can't find much info out there regarding the 3001 MKIII interconnect other than it's ridiculously thick and hard to find connectors for!

A lot of folks like Take Five around so I'm hoping there are some impressions vs. more well-known brands or other smaller but successful companies.

Neotech is the OEM company that makes cable for almost EVERYBODY in the cable industry - even cables in the if-you-have-to-ask category.
Order with confidence from Gene.

I can't speak to their interconnects but their speaker cables are excellent. I have numerous Neotech speaker cables and Mogami interconnects from Take Five. I only opted for the Mogami cables because long interconnects from Neotech become very expensive. Gene's cables have never disappointed me.

+1 for Take Five Audio, very helpful, high quality product and reasonable prices. I have both their Mogami and Neotech ICs - the Neotech are a little better but you pay for it! Free burn-in right now at TFA, and I believe they ship free over $100.

I could be mistaken but I think Audio Sensibility uses Neotech as well for some products - they certainly have bulk Neotech for sale, and have an excellent reputation on CAM. I have AS Testament speaker cables (I believe they are Neotech) and they were a an immediately audible improvement over my homebrew Mogami 3103 speaker cables (purchased cryo'd from Gene at TFA).

Not interconnects but I made a number of DIY power cords with Neotech wires a year or two back. They were made with higher up wire & the cords cost me something like $280-400 range depending on configuration but they easily outperformed the ~$500 name brand cords I had in my system at the time.

As for Audio Sensibilities, I believe Steve has all his "house brand" cables made with his own custom wire now but he does sell some specials/custom cables from time to time on his site made with Neotech products.

I have bought Neotech interconnects and power cables from both Take Five and Audio Sensibility. I would say both are good to deal with. Shipping is very fast from Take Five. So is Audio Sensibility, although I live close enough to Audio Sensibility to do pick up.
In terms of sound quality, Neotech cables are competitive for their price point and I would not hesitate to buy them. They are pretty flexible for their size. If you have never bought interconnects at this price level before, it will make a believer out of you.
