This cable craze started when Mark Levinson introduced his flat cable (to fit under carpeting?). At the time my Maggie dealer had a financial interest in ML and had his cable on demonstration. I don't remember what he used in comparison, but I do remember not being able to hear any difference. I also can't remember the speaker(s) or amplifier(s) used. Not being able to hear any difference back then, I most certainly couldn't hear any today, when I'm pleased just to hear the speakers playing at all.
IMO once on Medicare and receiving your Social Security Pension you shouldn't even try.
I gave up on audio gear for many years. I was doing fine without it. Then
I hit a bottom point in my life and go so bored. Ended up wasting money on different brand gear that does the same thing, play 2 channel audio. Should have used those funds for more practical things,
Learning from others on these forums is kinda like window shopping. lol.
Robert Fulton beat Mark Levinson to market with his "Brown" speaker cable. Fulton was a loudspeaker designer/manufacturer (Gordon Holt reviewed his Model 80 and Model J. I bought a pair of the J to replace my Tympani's in '74.), a recording engineer (his ARK label LP's are fantastic), and amplifier maker (he offered a modified Dynaco Mk.3 mono amp). He died at the relatively young age of 63 (Cancer).
