Hi all, came across this article while procrastinating. My google-fu (or rather head-fi-fu) didn't turn up any obvious posts in the forums, so I thought I might share this link.
"Carbon-fibre cables, gold-plated connectors, contact enhancers and spiked, lead-filled supports -- not a list of props from a science-fiction blockbuster, but a selection of the many accessories available from hi-fi specialist dealers. MARTIN WALKER enters the twilight zone to sort fact from fiction and discover whether any of this black magic can help in your studio. "
I find this article very dissatisfying, and I'm curious to hear others' opinions.
