Hey again, so... yeah. I'm going to put my foot in my mouth. I tried the stock cable vs the blue dragon cable on the Schiit Bifrost and the Valhalla first off and the results were that I thought the stock cable was actually better than the blue dragon. The highs were less harsh and the width of stage was definitely there with the stock. The blue dragon had clearer, yet harsher highs and less space for some reason. I didn't know what it was. I was ready to accept that the blue dragon just wasn't something that worked with my setup and it wasn't really worth using.
Then I tried the comparison with a new amp: the DNA Stratus.
Blown. Away. Is all I have to say (except, of course, whatever else I'm going to say here lol). The difference between the stock and the blue dragon was massive. With the more powerful 2A3 amp (I mean, there's really no comparison between the poor Valhalla and the voluptuous Stratus), the blue dragon widened the pipe, let the sound flow right out of the amp and into my ears. The stock cable was good, but the blue dragon was definitely better. It let the sound breathe... That's the best way I can put it. I've been tempted recently to check out their different cables. If it weren't for their prices... ack...
Anyway, *inserts foot in mouth*. I request that people ignore my previous statement. Sorry about that. Go for the blue dragon. It's worth the jump. :)
