MajorFubar said:I fail to see why the subject of cables prompts such polarised high-octane opinions. If cable X sounds better to you than cable Y, then use cable X. It matters not one jot whether the difference is real, placebic, or indeed if every measurment and electrical test shows that actually Cable Y is the superior conductor. Of course it's subjective and personal, as is just about everything else in HiFi. It's the old case of if it sounds better to you, then it is. To the original poster: go borrow some cables from a decent dealer who will allow you to try them at home. If in your opinion they haven't improved the sound of your HiFi, hand them back. Simple as that really!
