And since I'm still technically in the early stage of the legendary Morrow "break in" period, I would like to ask that all AVS forum members pray for me and my cables...

Well, you see I was following a linear trajectory in this thread by posting my experiences with the Tekton Pendragon speakers. I had been reading this thread (and many others like it) about the Pendragons, after I actually bought a pair, I started posting here. If you'll notice, I posted that I recently ordered the Morrow cables to hook up to said speakers. I was asked to post my impressions about the cables. Just trying to supply some visual aid as I "review" them in my home on my system.
But whats-a-matter? You no-like-a pictures?

Do young, nubile girls dancing naked in a pagan boogie ritual count? Cause that's the kinda stuff that typically goes on in my swinging pleasure bunker...
Now, about the cables. I'm agnostic when it comes to cables. I just wanted to get well made, quality cables for my speakers and DAC and the Morrows have a good rep and were offering a 30% discount.
My experience with the Morrow cable so far...
The reason that I'm posting about this is that I've been told that cables "don't matter" and break in is just a myth. If I hear any differences its because my mind is willing it to be. OK, fair enough. But I still wanna see if this placebo effect is real for me
. All I can do is give my subjective opinion on what I
hear on my
After playing a cd through my system with the old cable, I switched in the new Morrows. I did hear a difference when I listened to the same cd. The sound was thicker and a good bit more solid. The bass seemed meatier too. Maybe a bit less definition than what I was using before, but still really nice. Now my "expectation bias" going in was that they would be thin and a bit harsh and peaky. Other than a few times I "thought" I heard some exaggerated sibilants, I didn't notice anything sounding wrong. I let them play all day while I was doing other stuff and late last night we sat down to listen critically. They had a little over 12 hours on them. First up was Brian Eno's Before And After Science. The sound was epic and very much how I know (and love) this album. Side two was almost a religious experience, it was that profoundly moving and the sound of it playing through my system was stunning. These Pendragons are some of the best speakers I've ever heard... and I've heard many high end speakers. That I will state emphatically. Cables? Not sure. I'm very skeptical, but trying to be open minded. I like how these cables are made and they have not degraded the sound and perform correctly thus far. I played disc after disc and the sound of the whole system sounds wonderful.
Now Morrow and many reviewers claim there's a horrible break in period where everything sounds like sh#t and people freak out and wanna send back the cables. After about 14 hours I still have not heard anything wrong or unusual. If I do, I will report that.
Here's a picture for beaveav of my PrimaLuna "cooking" my cables...
