RE: Bulk power cable

Good evening once again, Greg;

As I see it's 809PM your time | I won't keep you. And let's please remember the go old days of Brit-Fi as some term in here in the USA, where here in the states during the early to mid 80s the little integrated amps like the Creek 4040 | Mission Cyrus One | NAD 3020 | original Nait were actually causing many to pay attention to performance versus cost, and I've experienced times where these little low powered by the overly priced domestic amps putting out say in tap 100-200 watts per channel struggled to control speakers said high current ( larger transformers ) 9-45 watt integrated's could mustard.

Companies like Exposure | Naim | Onix ( when their wares were actually made in the UK ) all seemingly believed in using massive transformers | outboard PSUs to increase their driving capabilities beyond what was expected or known about in certain markets around the globe, as many countries outside of the USA because of smaller homes, yet once which were built to endure bombings during the wars were constructed of either cement or concrete, therefore not allowing bass notes to escape their listening rooms, whereas I've long noticed that in this country it's all about the bass or subwoofer(s) coming into pay as if tight nimble midband of around 45-40Hz isn't enough | yet once again as I see ( have heard ) it real bass comes at a cost, here I'm talking about the $13.000 Magico S1 MK ll or $20.000 Rockport Technologies entry level ( yeah right ) Atria MK ll's, which is why those that can't afford said priced speakers are often the ones I've seen adding 1 or 2 subs into the mix.

Much like tube power amps coming out of the 50s | 60s rated at 38 watts max, while the Americans lusted for more and more power ( a deception at best ) which is why their were fooled into buying into the concept of transistor amplification | while on the other hand the Japanese came to America and left with suitcases full of WE Tubes | all the vintage tube gear they'd ship back home, along with every pair of Altec Lansing or JBL Paragon speakers they could locate?, as they actually took great pride in restoring them, where people here felt their usage had seen their better moments, such is blindness.

Myself having come out of the 70s coming home with a pair of Rogers LS 3/5as and having gone through 4 variations of the ProAc Tablette's | Kan 1s | Kan 2s, was never exposed or felt I was missing anything ( as nimbleness | attack of notes were much much more important to me at the time ) so for me now happily listening to a pair of Neat Acoustics Ministra's has renewed my sense of very very responsive mid-bass around 40Hz, via isobaric loading of two mid-bass drivers is more than enough weight | substance | impact | foundation to capture both my imagination | heart.

Like you, I think that a lot of nations are in denial of what's very very obvious | all one has to do it look at almost everything placed around their homes, and wonder where it's made?, I've seen suits and shoes with Italian names, yet once I looked at their tags, it'd read designed in Italy, made in China or Taiwan, what's that about?, go figure, eh!. And of course the automobile industry is definitely hurting big time, my last car was an Infiniti Q50 | while my wife's was a Hyundai Genesis, both of which handled the road with grace | talk about 100.000 miles warranties to boot, let's just say I've always driven Japanese | German | Korea made cars, and cared less about what Billy Bob thought.

I love knowing what the years have taught me | of which said wisdom can't be taken away. To death do we part. Can I get an Amen.

And I meant to add, while my mobility is limited to,where I'm able to get from our bedroom into the living room to listen for hours atop hours to music.., I only leave our space twice per year for doctors appointments just to keep my prescriptions active | as with all the craziness going on outside our safe | nicely decorated and serene environment, I feel I'm not missing much at all.

And by all means let's talk cables at your earliest convenience?, I'm always down with sharing a good chat on said matters.

Sleep well | let's pray we both awaken to a more peaceful | caring world.
