Let's settle this once and for all. A real wild, wild west showdown. More to come at the National meet. I am buying HPI's for everyone

Honestly, what's the point of this? Given their vastly different pricepoints (and target markets), it's an akward comparison, at best.

But that is the beauty of it. If at the end of the day the sound is very far appart then spending 3 to 4 times the cost would seem very sensible. If on the other hand the sound is close some may opt not to spend the $.

Besides mistmached (price wise) comparisons can be very eye opening.

I do not believe a meet environment would be the best place to do critical listening.


Cheers

Although I have never auditioned any rnb products, I believe both cables are fantastic in and of themselves. I am simply trying to find out what the differences are between the two, aside from the obvious construction/build quality (rnb's work is top notch). For example, I know Cardas using Cardas wire. Which wire does Myo use?

The reason for this thread is to better understand rnb's work to eventually justify a rather large expenditure (on cables, that is).
