Detecting differences among cables
Of course cables sound better/worse/different from each other. I've always found it easy to hear without expecting anything really, just *will it or won't it* do anything at all.I don't understand why there are audiophiles that snap their minds sh...

Nice review! Now I really want to hear them. 
New speakers but old Rotel Amp
