||I wish cables would not exist.
I also do not belive in added benifits of audio related cables.
Maybe some low eddy current design or mono crystal-ish design have something to it.. fair enough, but 800$??

Nord Lead 2
||I once built many speakers, which turned out nice and even a few pairs of headphones that turned out awful.
Many years of tinkering with room acoustic treatment.
||Almost anything that is recorded well.
Artists/Groups/Composers: Archive, Garbage, The Tool, Meshuggah, Puscifer, Radiohead, Portishead, Carbon Based Lifeforms, Nicolas Jaar, Massive Attack, Infected Mushroom, Benn Jordan (Flashbulb, Acidwolf etc), Fu_k Buttons, BT, Arvo Pärt, Rachmaninov, Mahler, Beethoven, Miles Davis and the list goes on.
I don'd like country, most of r'n'b, 80's pop in general and i don't think i ''dig'' hip-hop.
