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...

You cannot audition cables unless you take your system to the store and who's gong to do that.


We lend out cables to try all the time, it is one of the things we take pride in. I know of other dealers who do as well.

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...

The bottom line with cables is just like anything else in audio, how well do they perform? Can you hear the difference? By d...

This is why production companies, and sound engineers use Belden for instance.


The implication that all producers/engineers/studios just use "cheap" cables is just simply not true.

Remind me to never share any of my experiences with vendors. For me, let the guy share his positive opinion (and that is what it is; his opinion)...if you can state your personal preferences in a positive way, then share. No need to slag others IMO. What the heck is with cable threads? :? Not all p...

Would have loved to be there to see all the fancy toys. And it would have been neat to meet Gilbert in person!

Sadly it is a long and fairly pricey trip from SK.

Maybe see you all there next year :)

I would also want to stay away from the debate about whether cables are useful or not, but from a younger perspective it seems very silly. But that is what you are pushing here, and it is going to derail the thread. Why would it seem silly from a younger perspective? You are basing your comments he...

?Did I put in wrong place? Too less both of input and viewers, or just few are concerned of this kind of problem? I don't see it as a problem. Buyer denied insurance. Its on him. I don't really see how it could be any other way. Unless there is something I am missing. Sent from my Pixel XL using Ta...
