A New Believer

I have listened to many systems over the years, and have never appreciated the difference speaker cables can make to a sound. In fact, I was so skeptical of the sound changes they can make that I have always not bothered with any special type of cables, generally going for generic (and dare I say it) roughly made ANY copper wire plugged in to amp and speaker. Well, imagine my surprise when I decided to do a blind test and listen to what difference cabling can make. Wow, my Vand 3A Sig's had been getting strangled! (some of you guys may want to strangle me if I told you what connects I had been using). So I am now a firm believer, cables DO make a difference.
Lifting the cables off the carpet not only helps the sound, it costs nothing.

I believe these folks really hear a difference. I also believe I don't. Quite frankly, I'm jealous as hell. I'm 52 and my hearing and eye sight just can't be as good as they used to be. I also enjoy single malt scotch, but for the life of me, I don't taste any of the fruits, herbs and spices some of the reviewers claim to taste. (They all taste different nuances in the same scotch by the way) I just enjoy it for what I get out of it. If I told you a beautiful sunset and a naked model in my lap made the scotch taste better, you wouldn't laugh at me, right?

I think some of the items we discuss on this board are like the sunset and model. Maybe the scotch doesn't taste better, but the experience is more enjoyable.

Don't leave the forum, you have a lot of support for your thoughts and questions, if not your technique.

'If I told you a beautiful sunset and a naked model in my lap made the scotch taste better'
