Toymaker, you don't know what the heck you are talking about...These will fix anything and outperform everything I'm sure of it... :lol:
I read somewhere in the internet waste land that these will work great because the signal travels quicker by not stopping to read it's SPS (signal positioning system) and will not be confused trying to decide which strand of wire it will travel on. (this always happens in multi strand braided cables.) :lol:
What have we all been thinking? All of the trials, money spent, discussions, arguments, and the the solution has been right here all along. Question is who's going to try it first? Or are we going to be doing a remake of the Life Cereal commercial, remember.... "I'm not gonna try it, you try it.... :D Actually I bet you will also be able to see what the inside of your toaster looks like when you push the lever down.

I was reading last night from a Bob manual and he said to get the best cables you could and to keep them as short as possible.

I was also reading on the Martin Logan site as I like the looks and idea of the new ELS http://www.martinlogan.com/electromotion/. In the manual for that there is info on how to set them up which is similar to what you guys are saying.

Good reading for the middle of the night. :D

Are we to actually "swap" cables with others or just witness the effects of cable swapping?
I am in for the latter....too lazy to disconnect my system- I have the cables are tied in bundles to keep signal away from power... :D

Chauss,

It is my understanding the later. (witness the effects of cable swapping)

Only one or two folks will be doing the actual cable swapping. I'm quite sure folks know how to do that [or at least I would hope so]. This is to learn first hand what a cable can do for a system.
