I see now very clearly why he didn't want to share the company's name.

I never mean to offend anyone, but I do view this forum a place to learn and explore (and a source of entertainment at times) and share different ideas. I/we can only do that when all the information is given.

So the arrows are supposed to indicate a proper direction? Because as we all know, electricity travels better in one directons than the other.

That's what I've been doing wrong with my M80's. I have the Bi wire jumpers on "upside down".

This, and I truly maean this, has got to be my abso. fav. tweak ever. And it's not from Mapleshare, or not yet at least.

They are not just upgraded, but directional. Make sure you pay close attantion when you install them. Get it wrong and...

You guys are hillarious, must be Canadians. Pssst, the world is not flat and 2 channel music is like watching a black and white television hooked up to rabbit ears.

About Mapleshade. Yes, they make outrageous claims. But, you cannot knock their guarantee. Which is what prompted me to take a look see at one of their products. Here's a novel idea, Buy a cable, set up a blind test and report your findings here. I know this is more work than sitting here at the computer posting negative reviews about something you have never witnessed. By the way, I have been told that the guy that owns Mapleshade is the genius who developed and built the A10 jet.

For the guy who was asking about what ac source that I was using. I had the cable plugged into a montser filter. Don't remember the model # but one of the larger ones.

My next major purchase is going to be a power regenerator. This device takes AC, turns it into pure DC, then converts it back into steady AC. Power is a killer on TV's and the sound quality
of your system.

Ho Ho Ho...gotta love them Ho's

They're the one making the claims. Why should I spend my money to prove something I already know is false?

It's simple logic here. You don't control the "cleanliness" of the power from the generator to your fusebox--maybe not even until the wall outlet. How is 6 feet going to make a difference? Especially 6 feet of nothing but wire--no surge suppression, power conditioning, anything. Wire. Puh-leeze.

As for your testing, did you do this? "I'm going to switch the cable now." pause, don't switch the cable, press play.

In addition, audio memory is incredibly short. How I know this? Way back when when Peter, Adam, and I were comparing M50s and M22s, which do sound pretty different, I walked out of the room for maybe 2 minutes. When I walked back in, I said, "Oh, you've switched back to the M22s?" Nope, it was the M50s. Despite the M22s wider soundstage and lesser bass, after less than 2 minutes, I couldn't remember the difference between them and the M50s.

Yes, what you say makes sense. With that logic all steaks are the same, since they do come from a cow. Next time I eat a steak at the greasy spoon cafe I will console myself by saying this steak is just as good as the ones at Ruths Cris for 3x the price.

By the way we love you canadians.

No, that's not at all analogous, and I'd say you know it. Steaks vary a whole lot based on the cut, the animal itself, what it is fed, how it is cooked, etc.

Electricity coming out of your wall sockets (no matter what condition it is, how it is generated, what the voltage is) is not going to be changed by a cable--unless that cable is of too low a gauge and offers resistance.

Now if you were talking about changing out the power supply in your electronics, I might give it some credence--it's well known that crummy power supplies can wreak all kinds of havoc.

If power cords could make a difference in how electronics work (in other words, reduce errors, because that's what we're talking about here), I guarantee you that IT managers would be replacing their server power cables with $300 cables as well. Guess what? We're not.

And I'm not Canadian, either.
