Polk 432, Thanks for the clarification about the Nordost speaker cable. About a month ago, I almost went for Morrow speaker cable, and later would jump to the SP-6. However, I saw a thread on AG from a member who claimed the Morrow speaker cable has a long, long break in period, PLUS an "up and down" cycle where they seem to have finally broken-in and sound great, and then a few days later sound awful. The long break in period is bad enough, but I have never read in my 40 years in audio, a cable that is mercurial or (call it) moody with ups and downs of sound quality. I bought a used Morrow Audio MA-3 interconnect last year which is good, but not great
Unfortunately, I recently changed two things in my system: CD and speaker cable, and am now having a problem trying to figure why there seems to be a loss of dynamics and some detail in the mid-range....I know, Dumb Move!!
Mike M's REF speaker cable may be worth every penny, but I don't to wait until they cart me away to the Happy Valley Senior Home before the cable reaches its peak in sound. I might be able to buy the new Nordost for about 30% off list from a local dealer friend. I'll keep you posted as things change hopefully toward the positive
