It could be argued that expecting it means you are likely to colour the result!I do expect to hear the difference when I eventually put the TQ back.
Additionally, said inexpensive system may not be resolving enough to appreciate the change (same for minor DAC changes).

If I didn't know you better I'd think that was a polite way of telling them to bug*** off 😆If you ever fancy an easier ride then over on the Wam forum you will find more like-minded individuals

It is true though, the Wam is more sympathetic to the magic of Voodoo.
Having said that, I've seen the non-believers being every bit as forthright with their views over there.
Yes, I've seen their warning about thread 'spoiling'.The deluded magic fantasists have taken over that forum, sadly. Any dissent is not tolerated.

Really Roby?Cables can make a huge difference (certainly speaker cables)
I wil be happy to invite you do the test at my placeReally Roby?
If you think speaker cables make a huge difference, you must be absolutely staggered at the differences between speakers themselves 🤔
Right! It's all round Roby's gaff with our testing kit and earsI wil be happy to invite you do the test at my place
Transparant (that I kept)
An a few other brands
I'll bring the snake oil!Right! It's all round Roby's gaff with our testing kit and ears
Cables can make a huge difference (certainly speaker cables)
I would say
first speaker cable
It's really subjective, like most of things in this hobby. I always heard an read something arround 10% of the cost of your system for cables
More or less as long as it make you happy (arround that maybe a little more but hey maybe I'm crazy)
You did do a level matched double blind test when you heard the differences yes.
Blind testing should be straightforward, but double blind in a domestic environment is asking too much.To be fair though does anybody do blind tests when comparing CD players, Amplifiers etc ?
Sorry I went to a dealer I was at the time still choosing my amp didn't get in to cables choice at the time, didn't even know it could matter.It is very easy to get carried away with your feelings, when you have a very attractive and expensive set of speaker cables in your hand. You convince yourself these cables are going to make a vast improvement to sound quality, because they are shiny and new and fit your lifestyle and become part of your personality and identity, along with furniture and clothing and gadgets etc. I use to think this and then my head reminded me what cables really are and how they work, passing charge from one end to the other. They are a conduit and no more. The materials cannot change the sound. There's nothing in the cable making a difference to the signal it's carrying. If it's well made and doesn't break, then it will serve its purpose. I bought pricey cables because they are very flexible ribbons and don't get tangled up. I also like the colour. They are well made and will outlast me. I know they can't make a difference to the sound. It is difficult to accept this, when you spend more and the sales jargon tells you the cables will make a vast difference. Many sites come up with no end of 'technical' attributes that sound impressive, until you actually realise it's just jargon, with no scientific merit whatsoever. Expensive cables have become a status symbol and almost a lifestyle in the tech community. It's become an echo chamber of geeky delusion and there is a sizeable cable 'clique' these days. It's absolute nonsense.
If only those could be the last words uttered here about cables...We'll have to agree to disagree
