Break in, a little appreciated or understood concept...Some four days later these cables are more natural and smoother,I wonder if anyone, including Robert Lee would hazzard a scientific guess. My inclination is to think that, in part one becomes 'used to' the sound, and compensates for the differences.
Another, more esoteric look tells me that the cable really does have to ' break in' in the sense that audiophiles rail on about.
I only know what I think I hear, which is, a more (subjectively) 'natural' sound. Sibilance, my bane of existance, is almost non existant, even though the high frequencies are much more prominent, and clarity is greater than before. The bass, which is subjectively 'bigger' than before, still is not over big or wrong sounding.
I am really impressed, and only wish that more people could afford this product--or at least would budget the money it takes to have this cable in their system.
Dean Martin live in Vegas, is very telling. One can actually hear a woman in the kitchen, yelling at a co worker, something not as obvious before. Trust me, I know this album like the back of my hand, and hearing this after hundreds of listens, is not simply a "you heard it because you listened again". I have scrutinized this album ad nauseumm and this information was not there in this focus or clarity before. God, this is fun for me.
Robert, if you're out there, please tell us why your cables are so much fun, so clear, and more musical--I am sure most of us would like to know.
