    IMHO expensive cables for Headphones or speakers is total BS.  Here is the definitive work on the subject.  http://www.roger-russell.com/wire/wire.htm#introduction
     
    I used to subscribe to Stereophile magazine and when they first started hyping high priced cables I stopped.  It is all marketing.

    If someone wants to spend a fortune on cable wire here's the ultimate.

    And if you have some money left over you'd better get several of these.

    but wait, you haven't heard the sonic purity your rig really has to offer until you pay out for a: http://www.lessloss.com/blackbody-p-200.html

    The wires crowd is so sadly misinformed.  That money is better spent on ....anything else.

    I actually think I rather spend my money on cables than that Blackbody instrument or a $4686 power conditioning unit from that website.

    Speaking of wasting money I know someone who had a super audio set-up and he was so concerned about the electricity he had the power company run a dedicated line into his house just for the audio.

    hi folks,
    Does one need to use the CH650S with a Sennheiser headphone amp, or is the cable compatible with a Sony PHA-1, which I'm thinking of getting.
    many thanks,
    paul

    Paul,
     
    I assume you have the HD650 or HD600? If that is the case you need an adapter that looks like this:

    Unless you have that smaller connector on your cable.  This cable is for a "4 Pin XLR" connection. Some amplifiers require this connection. The HVD 800 has a "4 pin XLR" to connect to it, to get the full power out of the amplifier (see the black circles here)

    I started laughing in my office when I saw this one, you got to be kidding me......then I saw the below "Blackbody Ambient Field Conditioner" and I felt like crying, are we audio enthusiasts really this naiv?

    Wow, article from Director of Audio Research at McIntosh.  Very nice that even high-end audio system designers don't think cables affects are negligible.
     
    Anyway, thanks for you posts, you have nice collection of AudioPhooey.

    many thanks for your response.  I have the HD650, still burning them in but liking them so far.  But I have just the Sony PHA-1 headphone amp, so at the moment the Sennheiser Cable doesn't work for me.  What is a good source for the adapter you mentioned?
    again,
    thanks!
