Nice post, BR! You are clearly correct that speaker cable cannot add to the signal (unless it'[s picking up signals extraneous to the source signal). I also agree that barometric pressure and other environmental factors probably contribute more to the SQ (or detract from it) than interconnects or speaker wire. I also think that spending a lot of money on cable is unnecessary.

All that having been said, I really like the Mapleshade wires and ICs. JMO. Of course, I also like Axiom speakers (terrific value for the money) and the Sonic Impact T-Amp (outrageous value for the money) tube amps, persimmon woods, Titleist tour blades, balata 90 compression balls (if you can find any anymore) and manual transmissions (hence the user name).

Sorry to beat a dead horse but I almost fell over when I saw those cable lifts. After reading the description, I couldn't believe what I was reading. Are those guys really serious?

I wonder how many of those they sold...

Heh heh...do ya think they can prove the cable lifts are NOT affecting my sound with the same "technology" that proved the carpet is?

After all...just because THEY can't hear the effect doesn't mean there isn't one, right?

I think if you have the money, spend it on whatever you want. I personally wouldn't pay $2600.00 for cables, but if you've got money to burn why not.

I use Canare 4s11 for all of my speakers. Sounds great and not too expensive

That's actually what I use for my mains. I just think it looks cool to have a huge honking cable going to my speakers. My wife thinks it's ugly...

On another forum there was quite a bit of talk about using monoblock amps. You could put the amp next to the speaker and use a very short speaker cable run. The longer coax runs pre to amp would not make much difference, if any.

Is this more smoke and mirrors?
