Thank you Gunbei,, This cable seems to be getting some interest. I tried quite a few different cables thru the years in 4 different systems.. You get to learn a little with using so many different cables and components. Most cable I found to made subtle to moderate differences.. Than you will come across a cable that makes a big difference.. usually an expensive cable from a manufacture with the resouces and years of experience like the guy from Nirvania or Ray Kimber.. Just happens to turn out that both manufacture every part of the cable in house. Makes sense to me to try cable from companies like these two. If a company has the resources to build their best cable from scratch "all in house",, makes more sense to me that their cable has some real R&D behind it.. Also both their cables happened to be a cable that made larger improvements when tested personally.. Lot of the popular cable looked equally impressive and well made but showed subtle differences,,, also turned out that those companies used wire purchased from a wire manufacture and suppiles from other sources to build their cable. Makes a lot of sense to me.. Has anyone actually compared cables from companies that develope and build their cable from scratch all in house. Go try a Kimber Select or Nirvania compared to a basement cable maker no matter what claims are made.. Just try it yourself.. and make your own judgements. Of course it takes a high resolution system properly setup to start with. Do a search and look at the Kimber Select KS 3035 and look at what went into the development of that spk cable and what materials and design was used to finalise that cable. It uses a special compound and is an "UNSHIELDED" cable. Anyone who knows a little about cable knows the unshielded cable can easily pick up RFI but always is the better sounding cable. A shield protects the cable from noise but always degrades the signal... A good cable does nothing except pass the signal... The better cable gets more out of the way and lets the components speak for themselves. It's amazing at how much signal loss occures when being passed thru a cable and it's equally amazing at how good your high end equipment is when used with the better cable that gets out of the way... The weakest link in our systems is the cable.. Some cable passes the signal with little degragation to the signal.. Most cable pollutes that signal so much that it is the main cause of your expensive higher end equipment to disappoint.. When finding that right cable (and its usually very expensive and from a pioneer in cable design like Ray Kimber)it's just amazing to show how good your electronics are.. If you spent the money on an expensive high end system,,,, you better not skimp out on inferior cable,,,, I had so many conversations with people who have these great systems but just refuse to believe or even try to demo the proper cable for their systems... If I can help just one person here who has a high dollar setup and not happy with its performance,,, I say to you to JUST please demo (its free to demo)in home on your system,,, the most expensive cable that the dealer recommends for your system... It cost nothing to demo,,, the cost of shipping.. Call your dealer who carries the most expensive cable,,, and give it a week to settle into your system,,, You won't believe that a stupid simple (its not so simple) wire can make that much of a difference.. Best to use the same cable as a full system cable.... It cost nothing to try... Go try a few top end cables from a few top manufactures... Do try basements companies at first... Play it safe at first and go try a Kimber KS 3038 and 1130/1030 or Nirvania cable (they don't make different models). Go try a top Transparent cable (even with the stupid box). Try a Nordas Vahalla, or Cardas Golden Cross,, The cable is system dependent,,, one of these cables will be a good match for your system,, and when it does match you will never be satisfied with common cable again. Call the Cable Co and get some demos and buy a cheap cable off them just to pay for the right to try a demo... To a person who has the system but only using 500 cables,,, go treat yourself to a demo... It won't hurt to just demo and try for yourself. Your 30k system will now sound like a 30k system. A 60k system will sound like a 100k system. A 5k system will sound like the 30k system.. I heard the KS 3035 on an inexpensive entry level Maggie/Plinius/Audio Note system.... WOW,, did that real world inexpensive system sound much much better than 80k ulta high end systems I heard in Penthouses in NYC (great components but all mis matched and using garbage MIT cable).
Merry Christmas/Happy New Year --- I never talk this much,, you got my years worth tonite.
