|But, what if there isn't very far to go? Or nowhere? If you find the K701, FI, to be superior to all of the more expensive items, where do you have left to run? OK, you get the best DAC. OK, you go balanced. OK, you get the best amp. There must be more, right? So then, you get that placebo effect.
If you are nowhere to go, then you are done with equipments. Simple as really. If you think there is no where to go other than investing these silly cables, then you are done. You did your best, and you got the best you have desired.
Then, it would be time to buy some CDs, LDs, and good lossless online music files to make your stuffs sing. Sometimes I am surprised to see some people completely forget what's all of sound equipments are for: listening to good music.
There are many good recordings which are expensive and hard to find, why not invest to get these good songs?
I read a commercial about Audioquest cables, which cost, like 10000$+ for mere a few feet. Imagine you buy 10000$+ worth of CDs, LDs and lossless source. I am pretty sure you may not hear all of them before you die.
Or, you can use such surplus money for other matters in your life. How about a new car? saving money for house? insurance?
There are many things can be invested. The point is, just do not waste money for useless cables. Why do you spend money for the thing which has zero improvement on your sound system, only fooling you via placebo effect?
By the way, about power cables. Even though you can do anything inside of your house, you won't do much about other 500miles of cheap aluminum cables from a power plant.
Said, you will deal with the power company about the matter.....
