Davea33, you said it. You can hear more "space" around instruments and music is more three dimensional. It's amazing what this mod does to already great SR cables. By the way, a buddy of mine turned me on to Rodrigo Y Gabriela a few months ago and I was absolutely blown away. They are truly outstanding musicians and their guitar playing is simply beautiful. My same friend saw them live a couple of months ago. Of course, they were amazing, he said. Go on YouTube and check out their cover of Stairway to Heaven and some videos with Robert Trujillo. They are big Metallica fans too. They cover Master of Puppets and One as well.
I recently had my older(2006) MPC upgraded by Michael and my only thought is what a tremendous bargain. My cables are the SR Resolution Reference FX X2 speaker cables and the difference nothing short of total transformation they went from nice cables to great. The major upgrade total soundstage with detail and blackhole type background.The Nat King Cole Christmas cd went from a diffused nice warm sound to details beyond belief with rich individual vocals and instrument placement that is on par with the best. I would suggest you contact Michael before every SR owner sends their MPC in for upgrading ahead of you. Some of the best dollars I ever spent on my Audio habit bar none.
I've seen Rodrigo Y Gabriela in concert twice. Their 'Live in Japan' CD is spectacular. With the MPC mods I could more easily visualize the guitar playing. This essentially the effect of when I say 'more space' and '3D'.
I'm hesitant to say this as there are so many cable manufacturers, opinions and system synergy is critical; however purchasing a used SR cable and then getting this tweak done for $50 could be very cost effective to improving a system. I say that as prior to the MPC upgrade I was looking to purchase a power conditioner. I still may, but the bar has been raised considerable after this change and is not as important to me now.
