.  I look at cables as last in line of setting up a system
+1
As it should be..it has to complement ur system.. To finetune the last eeny weeny bit out of ur rig. Imho wink.gif

Only when i changed to my modified 337 and now my PaG i started to hear differences.... So i am guessing that people owning a more affordable rig (emotiva,mstage etc) cant hear the change..no matter what techinical explanation ur trying to find for it.... U probably womt believe also that going from a 4wire cable to a 8wire cable wont help in improving the sound.

As i said...we are on opposite sides... But still..i was on ur side also once..when i had my mstage...and i thought tube amps were antiques...and sounded slow and bad...how bad i was it turned out! A tube hater transformed into a tube lover..and now i am on the opamp ship..lolz
.. Am almost sure that if u would try 2 cables on my rig..u for sure would hear differences..no matter if u find a technical reason for it or not wink.gif

The technical aspects are very simple. We put spacecrafts in orbit and beyond and man on the moon, this stuff is easy to understand. You will have to hypnotize me to fool me, luckily I'm not suggestible. If someone elects to enjoy such things, I will not / cannot stop them.

Just agreeing with you by way of example. I kinda sorta wish I'd not bought my plusSounds cable.  But that was before I learned the joys of DIY.  That said, my plusSounds cable is a nice cable.

Can't choose different sizes, though. I think they went with the newer design.

 

And please, no more cable debate. What ARE you trying to accomplish? I am sincerely interested in that oth!

 

Lol, I just realised I have heard the same album (phillip glass - the hours) 2 or 3 times now. 3 times I think, not sure, though. Those hd800 are good with classical stuff, can't deny that..

Thanks for the heads up, new pads ordered! Now just to find a way to do the regrilling mod and then I can let my HE-560 and HE-400i temptations tide over for another year.

Hi all,

 

Did anyone pair the HE-500 with a Meier Audio Corda Concerto?

 

thanks

Hmmm, the hybrid pads sold out quick!

post #14037 of 14619
I ordered my hybrid pads on Sunday, but just got an email saying shipment would be delayed 2-3 day. Anyway, by far, the NICEST apology email I've ever received. Complements me on being such an amazing, passionate customer and says sorry, seriously, like 5 times. Hifiman, if you are listening, apology accepted. No problems here with the delay.
