I wish I had ears like yours :), I have ALO ref 8, 16 cables, diff interconnects, etc, I thought it will make the sound quality improved but I was wrong (just me).
I cannot tell any differences between the stock cable vs reference cables.
Only cable that makes bit (very tiny) differences is the ALO ref 8 balance cable, then again I am throwing balance mode as a variable so I cannot really say after market cable make any differences.
We are talking about sound differences between 14 to 28 AWG, OCC type, copper and silver etc.
Not really sure human ears are that sensitive to tell the quality of the conductor signals.
Maybe my ears are not meant to be an audiophile, or am I expecting too much from the after market cables ? someone help me, I am serious.
