Use identical ic's all the way thru the system, ( or, rephrased,do i need same type between pre and power as in the rest of the kit?)

Well i'd always have the superior i/c in betweem source and pre . If the i'cs are the same brand i can't see a problem . Throwing extra quids so you have the same will improve things but not night and day so i'd save your dosh

Well in that case there lies the problem, cos im using a Chord silver siren ic twixt pre and power, and Nordost blue heaven, (which to my ears is a millilon miles better, and explains the reason why im getting another to use with the X10v3) for cdp to pre.

Or place your best ic between pre and power, so you have the benefit of in the system the whole time. But this is all down to your own compremises within the system. If you only have one good IC ....you need to get make borrow at least one more !

As the source is the most important part of any set up, you should have the best inter connected to that.
