Sayles, Which wires make or break a HiFi?? Specifics please
...If your goal by this query is to dismiss my remark by specificity or flavor i.e. a personal like or dislike, I'll choose not to enter that trap with you.
My point was never meant as some kind of all encompassing, universal absolute, sorry. True enough, Romex or clothing hanger wire will transmit the majority of an electrical signal, that said, I prefer a modest boutique Hifi wire, if you will ;^)
What was intended though, was that I think we have all had a truly transformative experience by incorporating "wires" that seemed to allow a tonal balance, blacker background, sound stage placement, timbre correctness, or whatever that musically was far more fitting in its portrayal than something other in juxtaposition. Would you not agree? I most certainly have had too many to count and would prefer not to appear to be running down or damning anyones hard work and livelihood based on a synergy issue in a single configuration. Far too many things said in text here are taken without the needed, grain of salt.
Wire is a component after all, and by design or choice is an art as much as there is science, yet just because there are so many practical variables, does not make it merely serendipitous or arbitrary.
