Gentlemen, I think this is the Audiogon (two post above) we all want to see. Happy Sunday to you all.   Now I gotta get back to my listening session!  
聖HIJIRI Users thread
I knew, before I started this thread, that Gestalt Audio were dealers for Hijiri. I just wanted to gather more info and user experience on this cable line. As was mentioned by another, I too care about the folks on this forum. I've learned a good ...

Wow, I was here just over an hour ago and then come back and the thread just blew up. I understand your pessimistic view ozzy, I do. But you have certainly made it known in a number of posts - your questioning of grannyring's integrity, as walters... 
Sony SCD-777ES, Oppo UPD-205 or Marantz SA-KI Ruby
I’ve heard the ruby player a few times and it just sits at my dealers. The SA 10 is the one you want. Of course, YMMV.

@4krowme "This is when I learned that if want something bad enough, you have to work for it. That lesson payed off very well." I wish the more current generations would learn this lesson. No offense to others, just saying nothing should be free. ...

What started my journey was an old table-top AM radio my uncle gave me at age 6 or so. One day I was listening to it and laying on my bed, I reached over to turn it up and pushed it off the night stand - I heard a breaking of glass and that was th...

@cd45123  To clarify, for the last year I have been using the Audio Envy $179 P2 and the $279 M3 power cords. I like them and as I noted before, they easily bested the Isotek $1k power cord. As many, including yourself, say that Zavfino is better...

Great topic. My first two systems were MCS or Modular Component Systems back around 1974 or so. Don’t remember much about the model numbers but my second system had a MCS 3233 receiver, 33 WPC. Had MCS speakers, turntable, cassette deck, headphon...

Lots of great comments in here. Keep them coming. I believe that @kimurastanley also has some Hijiri. If you'd comment, that'd add value. Thank you.  
聖HIJIRI Users thread
Gentlemen, I do appreciate all your comments and concerns. All valuable here. Please, let's keep this on topic and cordial. Honestly, I never thought that this thread would go over one page, but glad that there are those out there who have contri... 
聖HIJIRI Users thread
This is exactly the feedback I was looking for. Very much appreciated. When folks like grannyring, lak, wig, & lalitk all report fairly similar results, and some of those users also having used Audio Envy and Zavfino, you can have a better id...

@lalitk  I was afraid you were going to say that. As Bill says, that is some rarified air for sure.  
聖HIJIRI Users thread
@lalitk  @grannyring  @wig  Thank you all for your comments. In a world where there are so many choices, it really helps to hear from others about their perceptions on cables. I think I'm looking for what you all say about Hijiri, it has this "...

@grannyring  OK Bill, I've created a 聖HIJIRI thread. forum.audiogon.com/discussions/hijiri-users-thread-2   Those of you who've used 聖HIJIRI and made the move, or haven't, would really love to hear your thoughts and comments.
