Ah, I see.
In John's defense, I'd only say that he did say "oxygen-free heavy gauge stranded wire".
Seriously, some of you guys obsess over non-issues.
It's only a non-issue if it's not important to any given listener.
Caring about wire is no different than paying attention to any other parts within an audio system. Parts and circuits within an audio component, such as I/O jacks, wiring, caps, coils, resistors, chips, etc.
Otherwise, debating about the topic is just a battle of wills, since those who seek tend to find, while others believe that ignorance is somehow bliss.
"Parts and circuits within an audio component, such as I/O jacks, wiring, caps, coils, resistors, chips, etc."
You'll get no argument from me there. But when it comes to speaker cables, once you've got the oxygen-free, twisted pair heavy gauge and high quality connections covered, you're good to go.
Considering your endless tweaking/experimenting and over 12,600 posts about it I really wonder if you ever find time to sit down and listen to music without thinking "Damn, wonder if I could get more 'accuracy' if that carbon fiber outlet cover was red."
Hey, to each his own. But IMO you sure as hell are obsessive :-)
His obsessiveness was acceptable in the Cable Forum, but outside of that venue not so much!
One man's obsessive interest is another man's specialized field of interest. It's only considered obsessive when others object to a specialized field of interest that is considered objectionable for some reason.
In the case of this particular forum, I would rather seek insight from those in Speaker Asylum who actually know what they are referring to based on a specialized field of interest in loudspeakers, rather than from slackers who would rather post uninformed opinions based on supposition or self-aggrandizing pretenses. It's pretty easy to get away with being a dick in Audio Asylum.
I don't require permission or approval to pursue my interest in cables and tweaks as my specialized fields of interest, and know that I've been appreciated over the years for what I've been willing to explore and share in Cable Asylum and Tweakers' Asylum. The few times I've stepped-out on a limb in other forums with hostile naysayers only fuels my interest to gain more insight into the topic rather than be discouraged by disparaging words.
The last time I checked, anyone posting here was already, by definition, nuts and in the asylum. :)
We're all obsessive here. Squeeze the wheeze! Honk, honk!
Blah, blah, blah, blah, blah ..........
Same old shit, different Asylum.
And just about everywhere else, or so it seems. ;-)
Dickishness is in fashion!
blind test cables.... and save money...
or believe magazines and get robbed
