RE: balanced 334s, searching this thread for more info found AnakChan's impressions to be somewhat muted after balancing the 000 cable:
"It is quite a bit of money spent to just squeeze out that little bit of performance. Although I do use my 000 balanced quite a bit, I find myself using the standard SE cable in equal amount of time too... Any sonic loss from balanced to SE is, to my ears, minor and easily forgotten."
So it's interesting to note this is the balanced 000 vs. stock 001... to my ears there's a pretty nice change in sound SE to SE between these cables, so I dunno
Gavin, I appreciate your enthusiasm, it even caused me to go off on a tangent and consider purchasing an International in the classifieds and then an RSA connector to reterminate my incoming BTG starlight. Just looking for more impressions on this, it's a lot of coin of AnakChan says. Who knows, perhaps that money would be better spent purchasing the 1+2s
