Otherwise, I get a rash.

Yes Bill, I still believe in the wire thing. If you don't,you don't..but I do and can prove it if you want to come over. But that is another subject, isn't it.

If you can prove that cables make a difference, then there's money for you. Contact the James Randi Educational Foundation.

Let's not start this again, this is why I let it go in the first place. I hear what I hear, if you don't believe me...fine.

I believe you hear what you hear. What else could you be hearing? Certainly not what I'm hearing. smile

Melt them down, mint them into magical golden beans and look for a guy with a cow.

Seriously guys, I never chime in on this stuff, but SBrown believes what he believes and does not push the agenda. He's happy with his cables, we don't have to be. Peace and audio bliss to all, however you get there - tubes and gold cables or solid state and coat hangers, who cares? We all share our experiences and someone else may or may not learn from them or believe them. I believe in vertical center channels and tell people about them as I don't think most people in the market consider it. I don't push it, just inform based on my experiences.

OK, returning to my normal state of zen now.

Btw...SBrown since we're on the subject you made a claim about hearing a difference using wires/cables...only a guess on my part but you dropped the subject rather quickly because you didn't want someone taking you to task, or even turning on you as some have done here?

Just wanna take the time & thank those of you who answered PM and offred advice here in the past...I appreicate it but for now....I need a break form to much Forum activity....it would seem.... frown



Billy p although I haven’t read other forums for quite some time I’ve never previously seen you write anything that would indicate you weren’t completely and totally fair in regards to your posting about Axiom. I too own a few Axioms (see sig) and have often been chastised in this forum for making honest comments that were not in line with a “fanboy” mentality, and in one major case feel quite vindicated. However, I’ve found that most forum member here can accept honest criticism. Please continue to post as diversity in ideas is healthy groupthink is not.

Besides we have this guy Sean who’s posting about how great his new, non-Axiom, speakers are and no one is taking him to task so I will. Sean, your taste in speakers is totally . . . cool since I’ve heard what you already own and respect your honest feedback about my very different sounding system.
