Changing the subject does not hide the fact that your comments are judgmental. I have no idea what you think of me, nor do I care. But if you think that my posts in this thread are for the greater good of high end or boutique cables then you are grossly wrong. I actually do not care what you use. N...

Do you feel your dealer should take some responsibility for leading you on? How is the dealer who loaned a cable for audition leading someone on? Key word here is loaned not forced. The dealer trusts the individual will draw his own conclusion. See that is respectable and accepting. Again you are i...

And trusting your ears ... Experience taught me we shouldn't always trust our ears. A couple of years ago, a local dealer loaned me a nice pair of speakers cable worth around 1 700 $. At the time I was using BJC speaker cables. When I installed the "1 700 $" cables in my system it was an ...

There isn't a set ratio. To me, the amount that should be spent on cables is unique to every situation. And some types of cables ( usb/interconnects/speaker wire) have more of an impact than others. Basically, one has to decide where the dollar value is, where the money would be better off spent up...

As for your question about cartoons – would that be a block buster movie or a series? I quite enjoy Pixar’s movies


I'm more of a "Rocky and Bullwinkle" type myself. Old school I suppose.

Audio_Guy: Before you try to insult me, why don’t you prove your point that the values of inductance, resistance and capacitance is consistent among all audio cables of the same type and that these values will have no effect on a signal. Mr. sthomas Sorry, no slight intended, I don't think we are m...

....There are no set parameters to these values and vary from cable to cable. In a perfect world these electrical characteristics should not have an effect on the signal. However, we do not live in a perfect world therefore the cables job is to also mitigate damage or alterations being caused to th...

Really? Leaving subjective comments about being the best aside. He’s implied that those who do not shop for BJC are idiots and that everything else is nonsense. Plus insinuating that people are easily stimulated by what they read on the web. In other words calling those ignorant. He’s casting judgm...

My issue is for those who are not well informed on what they are purchasing and are being lied to. I agree with gascho. Its pretty obvious and makes us all look stupid at best. So which is it? A few minutes earlier you said you just wanted to give your opinion on your cables, now you are back to ca...

Perhaps the OP can take note of that and think twice before he inserts his biased opinion toward those who may feel there is more value in an expensive cable.


My apologies if it sounded like an opinion on anyone, just an opinion on the BJC interconnects I just bought.

I don't think OP intended this to be against those who spend a lot of money on cables. Boasting about a product being the best on the market is only an issue with inexpensive cables. Why? Because people take it as a personal attack. This wouldn't happen with speakers, because we know speakers very ...

And how do you know that boutique cables induced distortion? Please provide that data.


(SIGNAL IN) - (SIGNAL OUT) = Distortion


This is true even if someone labels the output signal as enhanced. The greater the "enhancement" the greater the distortion.

There has to be some consideration of what makes a good cable. There are of course cables which enhance or change the sound which is what some people are looking for. Others, simply want a cable which neither adds nor takes away from the music. If it is the latter, this is significantly more simple...

No doubt that BJC are well made and of high quality for the price. But, their marketing is no different from any other cable/equipment manufacture. A lot of talk with no tangible measurements to back it up. Unless such measurements are buried within the website? They are marketing a budget cable. A...
