I wish to thank those that dwell on this site, your experience and knowledge have been valuable. I have been trying to join AA ever since I located the site but was unable to. Something to due with E-mail. I was finally able to get on with the help of AA's webmaster, (thanks Rod).
Not being able to join did not stop me, damn this is a great site to pick brain! Through reading here, I was able to locate the speaker cables with the properties I wanted. I selected Empirical Audio 'Clarity 7' and still burning in, they're everything the manufacturer said they would be. The only downside is that our ferret likes to knaw on the heat shrink. Couldn't use 'cat off', meth-ethyl-ketone is bad for plastics. Sodium Benzoate seems to work. Pet owners take notice.
Next are better ICs and Bi-amping my speakers. Glad to finally be with you.
Only thing, DWal, my speaker cable is AlmostClear11...not as clean but it certainly goes louder than your 7. It goes all the way past 10, to 11, because of extremely low inductance coupled with cryogenic burning, a new process I am developping. Plus it's 6" wide, so a lot more signal can pass down it.
All kidding aside, this site has helped me be able to read about and then audition lesser distributed products like Empirical Audio, TG Audio, Heart, Ah!, Magnan, Luminous Audio, Ensemble, Gutwire, along with the more highly distributed but still not in most shops like Acoustic Zen, etc.
I am also intrigued by the whole DYI thing, but my life is a bit too complicated just now to pursue this avenue of hobby.
And thanks for the plug.
