Home Cable Asylum

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

Dynamic range as annoying.. Due to being suprised and wondering what is going on...

What happened was I swap the cable. Then, at the same exact spot on the volume control. (I mean after years one really gets to KNOW where on the volume one wants in advance.. Yes)
Well, no.. Listening to wide range Classical, I hear the soft passages starting the piece as barely audible.. So I turn it up.. Then the full orchestra comes on and BLAM!!! it it too damn loud!

THIS is what I mean by annoying.

I guess I ENJOYED the compressed dynamics I had for years and years..
And suddenly I have to get used to a whole new WIDER range.
((Old and cranky, does NOT like surprises... ))

Now, months later, I am used to it as it is now. But back when I got the cable, (fuming WTF) I guess I just was not ready for a REAL improvement...)

As for the components, etc. I cannot see HOW telling anyone anything could matter at all.
Those things would totally move the question away, as you are trying to do. (You cannot see HOW it could be? And to your 'it must be some other thing')

So no I will not list a damn thing. LOL

And again ask. What could make a cable, electrically, be able to bring a major increase in dynamic range? That many other cables failed to have.

And no nothing was broken or mis-wired... All cables used from pre to amp were balanced and the same long length
(that is a hint.. The cable position in question is pretty long... well over one meter. ((But I feel like even saying this is a cheat, so folks can 'make up' fantasy about the length, instead of working on the actual question))

Added: I had tried, long ago a 1/2 as long cable, strung direct from pre to amp instead of running it around stuff. it also had the old lesser dynamic range..
