I know what you mean.I like a clean open ic from pre to amp,then a sweet slightly silky sounding ic from cdp to the pre.It just sounds 'off' if they're switched around.
When we moved into our present home I switched the cables accidentally after getting set up,fired er' up and my hubby(non audiophile) immediately asked why does it sound so weird!Uh...got the cables backwards,lol!
You're not using very much logic here. Why don't you let the thread continue on the merits it started with. Any part any where has a coloration. That's been established since the 70's. Why not build on reality and move forward from there. If you don't believe parts sound different why don't you start your own thread on that topic instead of crashing others threads that are discovering truths from their own findings?
These threads get too bogged down from guys who haven't experienced things for themselves. Time to let others step it up instead of dumbing (not doing or knowing) something down.
First let me apologize for Michael Green. He knows very well from my many posts that I not only know from extensive personal experience that parts sound different but am a staunch advocate of interconnects, speaker cables, and power cords as worthy of respect as speakers, amps and any other components. But Michael Green has a habit of misleading and using innuendo to smear others while projecting his moral authority, and this is just another example. All that remains now is for him to have my post removed for calling him out on his behavior.
Now just to prove its all innuendo and posturing, Michael Green what is illogical about my first question:
"So, you are saying the same interconnect going into an amp sounds different than going into a pre-amp?"
Its really nothing more than restating the OP,
So where is the illogic? How is it off topic to ask?
I wouldn’t worry too much about this miller guy...lately he’s been crashing every thread with an attitude ‘it’s my way or highway’ 😉
I agree with others here, IC’s are no different than any other tweaks in our system. A neutral IC from preamp to power amp would have more profound affect since amp is the last component before your speakers. For that reason, I recommend Speaker wire of same quality as your IC between pre and amp.
