RE: Supra ZAC Toslink Cable Report

Thanks for the nice review, Duster.

Question: with your experience with Toslink cables, have you heard any changes with break-in?

I just got one of the Lifatec cables. First Toslink cable I've ever played with, so I'm a newbie. Plugged it in last night, swapping it in place of the Oyaide DR-510 S/PDIF cable. Tried it first between the transport and Remedy re-clocker, and got kind of a mixed bag -- some things better, some things worse. Then I put the Oyaide back between the transport and Remedy, and ran the Lifatec between the Remedy and Cary DAC. One of them wasn't happy with that arrangement -- got nothing but some intermittent popping sounds out of the speakers. So I pulled the Remedy out, and went straight from the transport to the DAC with the Lifatec. Yuck. The Remedy clearly improves things. So it's back in, and I'm wondering if things will improve if the Lifatec lives between the transport and Remedy for a few hundred hours. Logic would kinda dictate that break-in wouldn't be a factor with a glass cable, but logic doesn't always apply in this hobby. :)
