If you shop at the said shop, please shop here:

I'M KIDDING...these people will rip you off!!! Do not even go here (the link above), they are known to sell your credit card info and you will soon find charges on your card originiating from places like Singapore.

That is true, but I think I would rather spend the $750 on something else, like DVD's or a couple of really cool air dried non Home Depot Amish maple boards from Mapleshare, or I even hear you can get some directional fuses that make all the difference.

I have heard that in Sony's new high end recording studio nearly all the wires are made out of 100% silver, that all wiring has a foot of separation and is of the highest quality.

Care to site a source for that? Doing a quick google, I couldn't find anything.

Damn, that's got to be one huge building to put 1 foot of separation between every single cable. Hope they have thick walls, too...

OMG $7250 for speaker wire?

Sign me up for an Axiom A1400-8, Integra 9.8, and Ep500, oh hell lets get 2 EP500's. and some 12 guage wire from the local hardware store.

That is just nuts!

if you can afford that list, you can afford $750 speaker wire

When I was a teenager I used to work/volunteer at a decent music recording studio; the studio owner's kid was my HSchool best friend.
One day, the engineer was explaining to me that the 8 inches patch cables used on the mixing console patch were actually solid gold. I was pretty impressed, and then I ask him, I guess that the main mic's cable should be pretty expensive too, huh? -- he said -- nah, it's just regular mic cable, probl. 19.99. hehehe.

Free your mind and your arse will follow.

I will be back after the new year to let you know about the quantum gadget though. You guys just might be missing out on another good tip from JKP.

Truthfully, I enjoy my system too much to not want to improve on the sound. I listen to my SACD's almost every night for about an hour or so before going to bed. I know my music and I can tell if an improvement has been made.

Beer budget champagne tastes...some day those Wilson Grand Slams will be mine.

Think of how much quicker they'd come if you spent less money on hocus pocus sound quality tweaks. \:\)

guys, why all the vitriol? I mean if the original poster did include the URL, everyone would have jumped him too. He did qualify his post by saying he tried - however unscientific - doing a blind study. I mean one could make an argument that if you substituted the word Axiom in the above posts/urls, it's what you might see/hear on other sites. "it can't sound that good, it's too cheap, what do you know about high end audio..." etc. etc.

Even if it's complete bunk, no harm done. It's not as if he was trying hawk the stuff. He didn't try come off sounding as an authority on power, AC/DC conversion etc. Refer back to the title of the thread.
