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 never claimed that this works as good or better than expensive cables"

I was not trying to be sarcastic. Perhaps I'm a little lost on the intent of the post. It seemed like an opportunity upgrade sound at a lower price point. Or perhaps I did miss the point, and that it is only an experiment.
@tobor007 The intent of the original post was to hopefully allow those that have never heard a difference to hear the difference in cables for the first time.
If you're looking for an opportunity to upgrade your sound, try the larger gauge magnet wire or the 16 conductor cable that I have, it will give you a different sound that you may prefer more than what you currently have.
They're both really good in a different way and worth trying.

I'm convinced that many who say there is no difference between competent cables have never actually listened. They've simply come to that conclusion based on their faith.

Of those who have listened and found no difference, I think many have come to the conclusion based on "confirmation bias." Their faith is so powerful that they just can't imagine there's a sonic difference between cables.
@cleeds I certainly agree with your comment and will not spend an extra minute of my time debating with someone who has already made up his mind. Experiences and improvements await those who keep an open mind.
OTOH, I must mention that many cables out there do sound very much alike and we are unable to pick up on the minute differences, manufacturers use similar designs and materials quite often so don't expect to hear a drastic change with every cable swap.
