Not surprising when it's a cable made to hit a low price point and look good to attract buyers. It's not designed based on how it sounds. Danny picked 8 out of 10, which also shows that most people don't "need" to spend a lot on cables. He even says something like, I wish I had concentrated on trying to tell the difference rather than enjoying the music, then I would have known. So if we're just listening to music, which is what we're supposed to be doing, we should enjoy and not try to find fault.
I agree, don't take it personal it's just business. lol
I tried these cables and thought they sounded quite good. I compared them to a few other cables including some that were considerably more expensive (Iconoclast series 2 SPTPC) and it wasn't until I tried Kimber Select KS-3035 that I found something I liked better.
I think the GR-Research cable is quite the bargain.
My issue with this test is the vast difference in cable gauges.
16 vs what appears to be much larger. I would think you would want to match gauges and then try the test. If the GR cable is say 10 gauge then a ofc stranded cable of same gauge and length should be used,in my opinion. I believe the results would be quite different.
I agree @htaddict. Comparing a $500 to a $2000 cable is more interesting to me and probably more "fair" but the idea is to see if he could choose his own cable vs a cheap one. I think it says more about the cheap cable than it does about his own cables.
