There's a little explanation here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Microphonics

 

"Wiring and cables can also exhibit microphonics as charged conductors move around, and various materials can develop triboelectric ("static") charges that couple to the electronic circuits."

I can't seem to find a good video of cable microphonics, but here is a good one of tube microphonics which is similar.

Essentially, when you rub the cable against something and it makes a sound, it is acting as a microphone which is really bad. Hence the term, microphonics.

i know the microphonics problems but i thought that was just a problem of tubes.

the strange thing is that about half hour of music the probelm decreases or disappears

...and you have isolated this problem to just the cable? If so, I would get that cable serviced, or cannibalize it for the wire.

"Hi 6" inquiry

 

Anyone know of hard-wiring options in SoCal for my newly beloved cans? Not in the mood to ship them East...

I don't live in the area to be familiar with it, but I do know Moon Audio in N. Carolina can be very fast. BTG Audio can be very fast too if you pay to get bumped up in line. I have had hardwire mods done by both and are equally good.

:wink_face: Very fast cannot beat local. Also, time in transit is only part of the angle. Ideally, I want to establish ties.

Oh, I guess you don't like me then :wink:

 

Here's my latest wizardry. I still need to add a coat or two of tung oil (weather permitting) and hook up the supertweeters, but I had to give them a listen tonight and boy are they nice! Who put Adele in my room?! :eek:

Hmmm, you could always send a pair to Cali for testing out in the field and get feedback. :evil:

Hope you have a strong back! :tongue: I'd guess they're about 70-80lbs. each.

Perhaps, you'll recall I've been slinging my SX-D7000 & G-22000 in and out hotel suites the last 6 months... walk-in-the-park. :p

Wheels... one of the greatest:tongue_smile: inventions of all time! Speaking of push, if push comes to shove, I'll ship the cans to MN or NC. I want 'em done so bad, I'd even trade my Pioneer SX-650. Potential with the HE-650 off the rear, but I'm returning to a minimalist listening room. Plus, having heard the cans with the Sansui, ain't no turning back!
