For folks who find that "wire is wire", I say move along, there's nothing here for you.
Here's the kind of comment that I've never read before:
"Yeah, I tried Valhalla in my system over the weekend and I can't tell any different between that and zip cord"
So, E-Stat, are you the self appointed arbiter of who should stay in this thread and who should not?
I was under the impression that this kind of attitude was only acceptable in the Cables Asylum.
It appears that a number of us are mildly sceptical of many of the claims made by a few Inmates who appear to be fanatical about wires and cables. Pardon us if we don't blindly follow anybody else's religion without questioning some of the dogma.
I don't understand those who devote considerable time discusssing that which they think is unimportant.to them.
where a 'high end' speaker manufacturer's recommendation (in this case Harbeth's advice of "good wire but don't overspend") for speaker cables may be considered blasphemy!
Go back to your hole please and don't pollute here with your BS.
You should read all posts within a thread before an accusing statement like that is made. If a $1.68 per foot speaker cable is too exotic to recommend, then even a lower bar has been set by some regarding Harbeth's advice of "good wire but don't overspend" for speaker cables. I've paid more for a haircut than an 8 foot pair priced at $26.88.
See link to my post within this thread:
Harbeth's advice on speaker cable is a reasonable position. I did not recommend 'lamp cord'. OFC hi-end power tool cord maybe. :-)
Some even went so far as to suggest that agreeing with Harbeth's recommendation bordered on 'cable nay-saying' and those people should not be posting on this thread. =:-0
I recommended CANARE Star Quad Pretty much the same as you posted and in line with Harbeth's recommendation.
...."naysayers" will be deleted on "the" cable asylum.
for recommending a $75 power cable!
OK, with a fair disclosure that I am NOT necessarily;y a 'cable guy'. :-)
