Hello (finally) Rsjm80.
We want to say thank you for all the kind words and, along with Thorman, say welcome aboard our "train" also.
The beauty of any art form is in the details including the art of reproduced music. Rsmj and I had a delightful conversation when he first enquired of the Sig's. Two of the things he was concerned about was detail that would "slmack" you in the face and thinned out bass registers being that the Sig's are silver based. I assured him that neither would be the case but that he would most likely experience music a bit differently than perhaps he was used to. Perspective was the issue we discussed...remember Rs?
Perspective as to how overtones and fundamentals relate to each other. Very few cables, regardless of price, get this right in our auditioning and comparisons. One of the things that I think sets the Poiema!! Sig's apart is they get this right. As a result, all the details are present but they don't slap you in the face. Decay relates to the attack. A cymbal's shimmering relates to the crash. A bass's resonance relates to the pluck. The actual working of playing the piano and resultant reverberation in the piano relate to the instrument. The finger snapping of the singer relates to the singer. Ambience relates to the space. All these attributes hang cohesively together instead of being it's own entity distinct from the event in one shape, form or another. Subtle but very relevant. As such, the music reproduction simply sounds more real rather than larger or shinier than life. Bass registers also sound like a part of the whole or as music instead of it's own entity or just impressive low frequencies. I think it's a credit to your discerning abilities Rs that you got this. Many folks don't and that seems to contribute to the constant buying merry-go-round some of us find ourselves in. Take heed fellows...Perspective!
Anyway, I could go on and on (I really do think we have a damn good product!) but I already have a tendency to sound like a commercial so I won't so, as you Ray encouraged me to Rock On, I'll encourage you to stay On the Rock! ;)
Thanks again Rs and I'm glad we've given you one more reason to enjoy your music again. Music or Bust!
BTW, should we be looking at Sig speaker cables in your future? :)
My very best to all,
