Technical and speculative discussion of amps, cables and other topics.

scoff if you like...

but diffs in wire is real. yes, the better the rest of the system, the more likely you are to hear the diffs. i heard them i a relatively affordable setup-nad 3020/spectro acoustics 100wpc amp/rabco st4/ADC XLM/rogers LS3/5As/infinity monitor jrs (as woofs)/dahlquist LP1 xover.

the diff came with an audio techinica litz wire vs radio shack black and red. it made no difference to me which sounded better. the litz ended up in the path to the 3020 amp and the rogers as the mids and highs sounded better with it. the rats to the woof end of the system as the lows passed VERY nicely through them. both performed their jobs quite well.

i cant see me spending big bucks on wire unless the money comes through for the MBL101s or equivalent with accompanying high end electronics. THEN you can hear the diffs. and YES, its worth it if you can afford it.

a further comment on the above system: it was amazing for its low cost.
