Well that started off sounding nice, and then you had to go and ruin it with a snobby comment. Why do you guys seem to forget that I was of the same opinion as ALL of you skeptics. Go back and read some of my old posts. I only discovered that cables and power cords made a difference after I listened to them in MY system with my own ears.
There's a reason Stereophile and Absolute Sound give reviews of amps and CD players with high end cables. I'm not talking about the reviews of the cables where they could be biased due to the advertising of the manufacturers. I'm talking about the reviews of the amps and CD players. If they made no difference, surely one of the reviewers after all these years would let the cat out of the bag on the internet or by telling one of their friends.
IMO to get paid to do a review do not make them more qualified than any of us, BTW some of the members here, have been involved in audio more the 20-30 years...so what? Are they better?
Do you think that I have not tried myself more expensive cables, recently I sold my last high-end cable, you know why, I needed the money to fund the LISA, and they sounded exactly the same as one that cost me $15.00...so it makes no sense for me to keep it.
If you still do not believe me, I have here the WireWorld cable comparator CD, I can send you a copy if you like, in which they recorded the same track using 17 different types of cables, it was the same track using the same machines in an studio, 24 bits pro machines, if the cables made a difference this difference should be recorded, and I'm not saying brighter, warmer or better, just different, you should hear those differences, sorry but I do not, and none of the ones who have heard it that I know of have been able neither...
I encourage you to find the differences between the cables, in the CD, and they use from Monster to Valhalla's, all prices of cables, so if any, should be there, OK?
