thanks for the update on your thoughts on the improvements of SC 2 to SC 3. I am using SC 2s and am looking at upgrading to SC 3s, If i could ask did you trade in your SC 2s.
Mike, I was able to trade my SC2s for the SC3s and was given 40% of the SC2s retail value new. The SC3s are usually discounted a little, so a two for one trade can be expected. I have had the SC3s now for about 10 wks. About 100 hours of playing time will give you most of what they can do, but break-in is almost painless. My overall impression is more clarity, even smoother with more extended highs, but nonfatiguing and very natural.
FWIW, this is a second of the opinion about overall quality of the JPS Superconductor3. My upgrade was from the Superconductor FX (which itself had blown me away!). Resolution and transparency both increased noticeably while retaining the coherence so necessary to good music reproduction.
The one thing I'd like to add/caution/disagree is that my experience with burn-in was not nearly as (shall we say) smooth as that previously described. The cables had a very cohesive and pleasant sound right out of the box but "came apart" (for want of a better description) at approximately the 8-10 hour mark. Harshness is the primary characteristic I recall. Perhaps brittle would serve as well. Whatever, but I'd been warned in advance. The cables settled in at perhaps 50 hours or so and seemed to round into a final form for a little while thereafter. They are absolutely exemplary cables in my (somewhat limited) experience.
