Roger that C.A.P I'm using Acoustic Zen Hologram II's (Solid Core design as well : Single Runs with special jumpers from the 'low' to 'high' posts ) and I completely agree with your findings.C.A.P said:I am still experimenting with speaker wires as I speak , seems that even cheap Rat schack solid core wires were better than some braided wires I tried , I will experiment more and post my final decisions.
Hi TJ,Tj Bassi said:Found myself in the same situation replacing the power cord on a Descent. Tried an Audioquest NRG cable but it did not seem to improve the response-swapping back to the stock line cord actually made the sub seem 'tighter'. Suprising since the NRG is not a cheap upgrade.
I have a friend who poo-poos the whole idea of high-price power cables, claiming that there is little room for improvement when you already have generic copper wire running from the outlet back to the service panel. Any thoughts?
The old cables were Monster Z3... yes I know much lower price and quality. I also auditioned some Acoustic Zen Satoris. I was pointed to the PS Audio cables by a review posted here. Of course the Acoustic Zens were better than the Monster, but the PS was better than both. The experience with the wife posted above came with the switch to the PS Audio, she had already listened to the Acoustic Zen but was not nearly as impressed.DTB300 said:What did you change from?
Ah yes...welcome to the wonderful world of cables and their system dependence resulting in the need to audition cables in your own system to see what the synergy is like.That1WhiteKid said:However he took them home and swapped for his Cobalts. He said that the difference was much more subtle than on my system, and he preferred his cables for some music and mine for other.
