    Thanks for stepping in Kwkarth.   The argument gets so tiring.

    Just received my Q-Audio cable this morning (insanely fast shipping) and this has to be the lightest, most comfortable cable I've ever seen.  I'm not really a cable believer (mainly got the cable for listening comfort) but if there are any improvements sonically, I'll find out shortly

    From California to Wisconsin (and other destinations back east) in two days, and far less expensive than UPS Second Day Air.

    I wish shipping to Australia was that quick, most stuff takes around 2 weeks to reach here when I buy stuff overseas. I'm quite jealous of all you people living in the US. Can't wait for my Q-Audio cable to arrive.

    So after being out of town on vacation, Steve sent me my Q-Audio cables and they arrived yesterday. I'm not sure how or whether the whole "burn in" concept applies to cables like these, but I couldn't resist doing some listening last night and this morning.
     
    Count me happily among the Kool-Aid drinkers. First, the ergonomics are insane. While the weight and clamping factor of the LCD-2 have not bothered me in the least, one thing that I am sensitive to is dragging around a cable... simply not a factor for the Qs. Virtually no weight and as others have mentioned they really are as flexible as shoelaces. Zero microphonics. Since I am using my LCD-2 for both desktop and some "portable" use (i.e. when traveling and getting to my destination; not while en route), Steve made me a Grado-style flexible mini adaptor to match my main cable and I am also very pleased with that. As for the sound I don't really speak audiophile, but I have found that my ears are very sensitive to changes that others might find to be minor. With the Qs my initial impression is that I am hearing a distinct improvement in what I would call depth in the bass and lower midrange, together with a more subtle improvement in clarity throughout the spectrum over the stock cables. These improvements are very significant to me overall, and that's what counts.
     
    Great job, Steve!

    How did the cat feel about being a cable model?

    Hehehe.
     
    Actually I rather like that last shot, the way he's got the cable laid out like that.

    My setup puts my listening chair right next to the rack, so I only needed 1.5m. I actually think the ergonomics might convince me to get a longer cable in the future for more flexibility. The mini adaptor cable is about a foot long.

    Just a bit of informed advise to prevent you from going off half cocked (actually more like a third) with the result being grievous embarrassment: Don't go whipping that thing out to try and impress the babes when HK_sends is around. [​IMG]
