||Not really into upgrading cables past quality built functional applying the rules I learned in EE for analog cables to assure proper GA for length so as not to add too much to resistance, maybe upgraded cables make more of a difference, but as I haven't tried cablee worth more than a couple of hundred, I can't say.

||All genre's except most country and all Tejano
||I have been building computers and programming since I was 10 (now my career). Part time auto-mechanic since I was 12, worked as a line tech in a dealership for a couple of years. I am into cars generally speaking as well (Audi mainly); I love Top Gear, those are the kinds of cars I enjoy. I was in the Navy as a Nuclear Electrician on a sub, and I am still interested in nuclear power as a concept and continue to learn and study about advances in the field. My degree was in computer and electrical engineering at the University of Texas @ Austin. I enjoy shooting rifle, pistol, and shotgun and have a decent collection of firearms, and I compete in NSCA(National Sporting Clays Association. I also went through a knife phase and have a collection of several hundred blades (that I need to liquidate). I have been into home and portable hi-fi since I was about 8, initially buying broken electronics from garage sales and fixing them so that I could get what I would otherwise not be able to afford.
