I can honestly say that when it comes to cables the brand name, cost, and color mean absolutely nothing to myself and Rainwoman. I don't care if they are hot pink with purple and green trapezoid shapes on them. It also doesn't matter what they cost although they can be a little sweeter when my wife scores us a pair for $120 which someone paid $1,000 for when they bought them new. The only thing I find to be important is how well they get the signal from one component to another and how well our speakers get along with them which determines if our ears like them. I noticed there has been some calling for some A/B testing.... elgrau wrote:
Yeah, brand naming is VERY important in "audiophile land": Can almost gaurentee that if "MIT cables" had chosen "MSU cables" (sorry, BillD!
) as their name that no one would have a clue who they were nor try out their cables....
Well, as I have offered up a million times- if anyone from the forum would like to do some cable testing you are more than welcome to come by and we can do all of the cable testing you want.. I can guarantee you that you will be able to hear the changes from one pair of cables to the next in our environment! It won't matter what your overall opinion of our system is be it good, bad, right, or wrong because you will definitely be shocked at how different a few pairs of cables can actually perform. The thing which allows this to be such an obvious change when you switch a pair of cables is our speaker placement is just about perfect so if there is a shift in sound stage, imaging, pitch, or frequency it is easy to identify. I would love for some of you guys to come by and do some testing it would be fun and I promise you will be quite surprised...... So bring your cables and come have some fun!
