    Myth or Not? "Cables sound different"

    I think it is all about perception. I have been fooled by this "effect" many times so I remain skeptical. In other words...What you want to believe...u do. I dont want to bring this up but its the same thing with religion/god.

    This problem has been bothering me for a while now. With the old nvidia drivers 40 series, my logitech mx500 mouse is silky smooth, but when I install the newer drivers 50/60 series. It's only smooth at 60/70hz monitor refresh rate. at 72+ hz it's jerky as hell, esp in internet explorer...

    Why does everyone hate the Audigys?

    Asmo, Dont get me wrong, the sound quality of good sound cards are good. They just aren't great. Every digital out is perfect and if it's not the dac will make it perfect. By doing this you're pretty much taking the soudcard out of the equation. Wodgy, ...

    Why does everyone hate the Audigys?

    I love my Audigy 2 zs. It's a fantastic sound card for the PC. Sure it wont match my hifi in terms of sound quality, but it's not suppose to. I dont really use my PC for music anyways, mainly for watching anime and gaming.

    calling biwire experts!

    Hirsch, Wouldnt you need an external crossover to split the frequencies before the speaker terminal? My understanding is that if the first crossover is after the speaker terminals (on the speakers) then any form of biwiring is pretty useless short of bi-amping.

    calling biwire experts!

    I think both setups are identical, but one might argue that setup B might be more suceptible to crosstalk. I have mine wired up similar to B although not quite the same only beause the cables im using are so bloody thick/stiff and it looks neatest this way. If you want to know more (alot...
