Whats the point? It's the same wire dressed in a black dinner jacketVan damme hifi beats the blue studio so go for that if you choose van damme
I used to use NAC-A5 back in the 90s with even budget systems, but that was when it was less than a fiver a metre - I see it’s now £30/m!! Used would be your best bet, and seeing as the cable has been around for over 30 years, you should see a wide range of used prices.Thanks Davidf, I will look into AudioQuest and Naim NAC-A5.
I don’t really get hung up on the technicalities of cables - I just listen to them. Manufacturers can do what they like to them and make them out of whatever they want, im not really too interested. Talking to Bill Lowe is an experience. He’s the sort of guy you could just chat to all day long. Interesting, lots of stories, and knows what he’s talking about. They do get quite technical, but Bill’s a technical guy.I can see what you mean David as I've just had a look at their website... but they sure do talk a load of b*llocks in their blurb about the features of the cable:
You say chilli, I say bratwurstThey look like massive dried chillies.
Unless the picture is doctored, they can't be so heavy, judging by how they're sitting in the background of the picture.I wonder what the price is and how heavy it is
Look at what these companies use at shows, are they using a bell wire to connect to the speaker? if they are using anything over £3pm then something just ain't right, i mean by there own admission if expensive cables don't make any difference why on earth would they spend hundreds/thousands of pounds to demonstrate their speakers on anything but a cheap decent gauge cable? just a thought!Seeing as PMC advice in there own manuals is that expensive cables are a waste i'd follow there advise. I use linn k20 through out all the systems ive had and to be honest ive found nothing that can better there "sound" when i have been a bit a curious too see if anything can make a difference.
I use tellurium black mk1 which seem to work well. Open detailed sound ...
It's good to know that it doesn't matter what the cost is, the cable just needs to be thick and low resistance for best results. Tellurium or Ebay 6mm, the result will be the same.Quite agree it might be nice to know if he has a budget for these cables ....but he seems simply wanting to know people's thoughts on them, the way most cable threads go. I notice he hasn't bothered to come back with any feedback
