An EXPERIMENT for those who have never heard differences in cables


There are many here who have never heard differences in cables, I was there years ago until I read a post of someone preferring the sound of 28 awg magnet wires for speaker cables. I quickly drove out to my local Radio Shack and picked up magnet wires of various sizes (22-28 awg) to hear what it sounds like. I remember this being a fun experiment and a really cheap one that taught me a thing or two, I've gone on to experience many other cable designs over the years.

***Run two insulated magnet wire to each speaker (one for positive, one for negative) and use them in place of your existing speaker cable, the insulation on magnet wires are very thin and a little difficult to strip, sandpapering the tips may work. Connect them to the binding posts on your amp and speakers and let us know what you hear?
(Amazon also carries various sizes of magnet wires)

I can say honestly that in the 15 years I have been an audiophile and most of my life being a musician. I am convinced that cables, especially powers cables make a significant difference in the sound. As do speaker cables and interconnects. It’s not make
believe and fluff marketing. 
Consistent cable throughout a system (in my case Nordost Frey2) creates a much nicer tone and at least in my case has been the path to the great sound I have now.

This is always a source of conflict. Frankly I just don’t understand when people say they cannot hear the differences. Makes no sense to me. 
And it’s not about cost, my AudioQuest CV8 cable is much less expensive then the Nordost I have in may main system and I love the sound the CV8 line produces as well.

Happy listening everyone!


I have not heard about this setup. So as cheap as this is, and if it works as good or better than expensive cable, do you think higher end cables may take a hit in sales? Or would those companies offer their own line of  magnet wires? And if they did offer low price, high quality magnet wires, what would it do to their very expensive/high profit wire? Perhaps this is a good good thing?
@tobor007 I never claimed that this works as good or better than expensive cables and that high-end cable sales will take a hit, this is an experiment for those who have never heard a difference in cables. As you can see by these posts, some do enjoy the sound and experimenting with magnet wires. 
@djones I wasn't ready to let the cat out the bag but rodman99999 beat me to it. The larger 8-12 gauge magnet wire does have a sound of its own and sounds really good if it fits the listeners' preference.

I also have a leftover spool of 16 conductor braided cable, braided designs are used by many high-end cable companies, most notable is Kimber and Shunyata. Anyone who wants to experiment with these cables shoot me a PM.
