Greg, I was wondering where that cable went.

Nrchy is in for another treat when he receives the Purists I have ordered for him.
After the initial break in period you will hear additional "black" and lack of noise, and a huge improvement in extreme highs and bass. Soundstage will wider and deeper and low level resolution will be way up
Hope you guys get together and audition it. I am eager to see if your results are the same as mine.
I can give testiment to the silver treatment and Mikrosmooth also.But you forgot the Ionoclast at $38.50.Have used it on CDs,power cords and cables-amazing.
And as long as you are talking about Purist Audio/Jim Aud,have you heard his demo discs? Right up there with the Mapleshades!The only problem,500 different discs are offered.
Tpsonic, I didn't know Purist had demo discs! I would like to see how they sound. Their burn-in disc isn't much fun, but it sure works nicely.
Greg the pictures I posted yesterday show the MIT cables and if you look close enough the Krell is gone and I'm using a B&K pre-amp till the Klyne arrives.
Albert I'm looking forward to the new cable. The MIT/Monster combo is dismal. Voices and instruments are huge. There is a massive brush of sound with little or no detail to be heard. There is no depth to the music. The soundsatge is as deep as a sheet of glass. It's alright to have on in the background but I really don't sit and listen since the speaker cable and pre-amp are gone.
Tpsonic. I second Nate. Where can you get a list of some of the demo discs from Purist? If they are the quality of Mapleshade I definately would be interested! I'm still using a tape demagnitizer on my discs. It does seem to help. Thought about the Ionoclast but haven't tried it yet. Albert, I definately plan on making the trip up North again once the new Purist cables get to Nate and GD. It will be an absolute pleasure to hear their systems with the new cables. Nate, took a look at your system now. It sure doesn't look the same. And now that the Purists are settling in to my system and I hear what I was missing with the MIT's I can sympathize with you. However, I was listening to music for hours on end with those cables since it was so much better than I had ever had in my house. Now I just listen more ;-)
Cdc, when I put the cd up to the light I noticed a reflective surface, not very fine scrathes. I don't really liken this to an automotive polish that uses harsh abrasives to do its' job. We all notice our own things. I feel Microsmooth does a good job of improving the sound. What I hear. What is important. You think Novus does a good job. Good products both of them but I have not tried Novus. Good listening to all.
