Good Lord, you say cables don't make a difference?

Post by treitz3 » Fri Oct 14, 2011 11:42 pm

Are you fucking kidding me? Try listening for a change.

Wire World -vs- MIT? Review forthcoming but damn. If you can't tell a difference? Get the hell out of this hobby. All aspects with just one cable. This go'round between the CD and the preamplifier. I really do not understand how some folks can not hear any change. It really does boggle my mind.
In search of accurate reproduction of music. Real sound is my reference and while perfection may not be attainable? If I chase it, I might just catch excellence.

The best way to enjoy digital music reproduction is to never listen to a good analogue reproduction.

It may be the little box of electronic "gizmos" on the cable??? They just seem to provide a bit more detail for some reason....

Yes cables make a can make huge difference. Especially between the preamp and amp where the whole system can benefit.
