Home Cable Asylum

Interconnects, speaker wire, power cords. Ask the Cable Guys.

So you say.

Please ... are you really trying to tell me that nobody in this "hobby" has their perception influenced by the price that they pay for or the appearance of the hardware that they purchase? They may not be considered audiophiles by your definition but they are human and it's not concious or intentional. Where this topic is concerned, you obviously believe that flat out objectivity easily and always trumps the complex human psyche. You are above and beyond that, of course ...

Yes, that is exactly what I was asking. I think everyone got that point. I never hid it. You are offended by it. Oh well, so sorry. That said, you dont know me. You assume I am a naysayer in hiding. Wrong. I am on a budget and my cable experiences are limited because of that budget. Regardless, I hear the differences and I use the cables that I sonically prefer in comparing to others I have tried over the years. Again, within my own budget. I do think its chasing subtlety for the most part. Especially with power cables. Regardless, I am far from the cable naysayer that you wish to believe that I am.

That said, you can keep your "audiophile" label. I learned to stop chasing that label years ago. I simply love music, period. I have no wish to become part of a "fraternity" teaming with intolerance, judgement, elitism and disdain. You display most of those characteristics very well.
