Mad Scientist Audio / HDC

I came across the MSA website a few months ago & was intrigued by a few of their offerings,but never got around to ordering anything. Well,until about the beginning of last month anyway ! I decided to try the HDC as every 75ohm Digital Coax cable I've had have sounded pretty "generic"(including an $800 one using a "pin-lock" connector).

I finally received it the day before last & I've been pretty impressed with what I've been hearing with it so far. I don't listen to much non-acoustic music anymore as musical instrumentation without a certain level of "natural" harmonic development doesn't hold my interest any longer than it takes me to turn it off, or change it to some music that does hold my interest. It's just too much "work" to enjoy it.

For what I do prefer to listen to (largely Classical,some Jazz & some Contemporary Singer/Songwriter material)Music has been sounding a bit more Analogue sounding(minus some of the Analogue artifacts.

I couldn't help myself & I just had to send MSA a fake complaint E-mail,complaining that it was their fault that I was'nt able to get anything done due to the fact I didn't want to interrupt my music listening session.

As always YMMV & should my impressions change drastically I'll try to be honest about them.

& the best news is this cable is relatively inexpensive (but doesn't sound like it is ,at all)
