RE: Contrast that with Dave Gilmour's Astoria studio...

I just listened to the latest Darko podcast where he interviewed someone from the pro-audio world. He made the point that studios aren't going to pay big bucks for cables that can easily 'walk', especially if freelancers are using the equipment. In the extreme he noted that a big studio would have many, many cables and they simply aren't going to 10x or 100x that budget for audiophile cables. So, almost all the music we listen to passed through non-audiophile cables on its way to, and from, all the op-amps in the mixing desk. And, practically, recording techniques and mastering have the most impact on what we hear.
