Yes, cables do make a difference -- regardless of price...
Cables make a difference some more than others and all have a break in period  
High Fidelity Cables?
Ozzy Thanks for the info, when i purchased the newer XLR interconnects from Rick he sent me a small bottle of the Q45 that had a similar but different label on it. I wonder if it is the pro stuff. Rick said it was a little different. I have not t...

Not sure for power conditioner my amp or not.
I would test it your self giving each trial a week before deciding  
I need advice on Dissimilar runs using XLR
I was alway told to keep them equal, and do not coil the longer run. If you ever upgrade selling one long cable and one short (match set)  would be a much tougher sell

Rick has always done well by me. His products are great and i will continue to do business with him when needed.  
tattooedtrackman Thanks for a great post-question here I also have the Matrix 800s speakers and love the sound. I looked into replacing the ferrofluid some time ago. Contacted B@W North America they would not do the work here in the states. They...
