MC, Moabs look great! You must have gotten dozens of E card for all your cables. Share the difference they make?
Thanks, and according to my much more styling oriented wife they look pretty good and will look even better when I get around to re-painting and adding planned diffuser panels. It'll look and sound much better, but very time-consuming project so don't look for it any time soon.
E-cards, Mats, and TC all sound very much the same. All remove an impressive amount of grunge, grain, glare, and just make an overall improvement in clarity and detail. Almost hate to say clarity and detail because the improvement I'm talking about is not like what most would associate with detail. Its similar to the way Moabs greatly improve clarity and detail and do it not only without adding any hype or etch but actually managing somehow to be both faster, more dynamic, more detailed AND smoother, all at the same time. E-cards and Mats are like that, only even more so. If you can believe that. Which you should. Cuz its true!
Too many tweaks to count . But the mystery connection is your Preamp in becoming a Pre-out. Using two resistors, kind of a voltage divider, two resistors in series?
Well let's see there's Mats that are sliced up and wrapped around cables. Some early ones are held on with zip ties. More recently improved versions with tape (speaker cables only so far) are TDF.
As for the pre-out, close but no cigar. The pre-out is a mod but no mystery, there's even a look inside at the resistors. But you are looking in the right area. That's all I will say. Just one more clue. There's enough information just in one picture to be able to figure it out. (Though you must look and study #41 real, real closely- and even then it will help to also study #42.) But honestly, only if you're a genuine millercarbon level audiophile will you stand a chance.
That's for real by the way. I figured it all out myself, then confirmed with the manufacturer. No one else has. Still, its all there for anyone with the chops to discern. Happy hunting!
