Re: I/C a pair of ian mac filters

Still not sure what these do.
I’d happily try then and pass them on if they don’t work or fit.
Let me know a price?

Cheers

Re: Long(ish) XLR cable. Anything I should know before I order?

That’s about right.
You can spend fortunes on foo but decent cable and connectors will do you fine.
Matters not, and at that length you won’t hear any difference if you paid 3 figures.

Boenicke W8 in ash

Just an early heads up for you lot that my Boenicke W8 in ash are for sale. Only for sale as I have replaced them with a set in oak! I’d not part with them otherwise. Opportunity arose to colour match with another forum regular’s set. Pics and a full advert to follow but I always like to give fellow...

Re: A last, long goodbye to Cyrus

I’m guessing you didn’t do a blind test? I have no doubt that the cables are well made, but you can’t improve on copper at the level it’s used in audio, and you can’t really improve a good shielding outer. You may have minuscule gains but I doubt any human could perceive it. The test... Ask the manu...

Re: A last, long goodbye to Cyrus

Ian said it best. Use short speaker runs and longer amp cables. The speaker wire itself is copper in a sheath that reduces interference. Any competent maker can do it.

Re: A last, long goodbye to Cyrus

I’ve had a good look at the fractals. Apart from some plastic and more plastic. To stop vibrations... and some copper I have no idea what the science is. It’s not patented and they even say it’s not something they want to talk about. Because it’s rubbish. It’s copper wire in a shield. I have no idea...

Re: A last, long goodbye to Cyrus

Have any of you got a mate to swap between cables though, and tried to repeatedly tell which was which?
If they make a difference it would be ten times out of ten?

Re: A last, long goodbye to Cyrus

It’s just wire.

Try a real blind test with your current cables and I’d be amazed if you could pick the change over.
