Cable elevators

My Saturday hifi tweaking involved digging out the family’s box of wooden building blocks and using them to elevate my speaker cables off the floor. Previously under an area carpet on a wood floor. Mc 601s to SF Amati with Wireworld speaker cables (to be replaced with Cardas). 

The result—mind you the system is playing really well right now thanks to my new Cardas interconnects—is greater clarity (I think), sound stage, and texture. This is definitely about wringing out the last ounce of the system and maybe I’m imagining the improvement. I don’t think I’d spend any money on buying risers, but what the hell why not use the old building block. Looks dopey and the family laughs at me, but dang does the system sound amazing.

Anyone else play with risers/elevators?

Unfortunately, most normal rooms do not allow the use of risers, as some of the cable is run or hidden under furniture etc. Plus the wife factor. It's bad enough she does not appreciate the equipment as is, wants her living room back...

I am also so lucky to have a REF6 I bought used and upgraded to a REF6SE.  Paired with a REF150SE.  Would love a REF160S, but now thinking of waiting a generation.  Maybe they will make a KT170 amp?
