Hi MF . . . I respect you coments all ways have . . . have you tried the cable end to end swap? See the 'PS edit in my previous post', just in case you have mixed the positive ends up at some time?MajorFubar said:CJSF you are a highly respected member on this forum (certainly by me) but on this occasion:
I can buy most things, but directional speaker cables...nope, I can't buy it. Sorry fella. No hard feelings.
I have to cover my back and say it may not apply to every cable, however, I have not yet heard a cable that does not have some change, some are more obvious than others. All my cable, speaker and interconect, in my system has been evaluated and found to be directional. I have a small plie of cabel in my shed that has been rejected during evaluation for sound and/or directionality. However my experiance is limited, I have only listened to my limited selection over 30 years, usualy for personal use?
At one point, we did do extensive tests on interconect cable over many hours and days!!! The cable we came down on was highly directional, of tiny condutor size, and made of an unusual metal. That cable sold many hundred of sets to those that listened, I still use it today and have had it listened to profesionaly recently. I was asked to remarket it . . . to old, cant be bothered, for the negative resons that have come up in this thread.
I say again MF, have you tried the 'end to end test'?
