I was maybe trying to convey (the wrong way) that I'm not your typical clueless person that walks into best buy and thinks TV speakers sounds amazing.
Well, that's one kind of clueless.
The Magnolia guys swear that the Audio Quest cables are the way to go, and yeah they are about $300.00 for 8ft. I don't think it makes much difference but I haven't had much of a baseline to test against.
Well, here's the thing. If you buy the Audioquests, they will sound like seven kinds of wonderful. But if I slip into your house at night and secretly replace them with generic stuff from Home Depot, when you wake up in the morning they will still sound like seven kinds of wonderful. Human hearing is incredibly suggestible, and that's what's going on. It's not just price, either. The mere fact that the BB drone praised them will influence how you hear them. (And don't take this personally. We're all subject to the same subconscious effects.)
The bottom line is that cables and wires have so little effect on the signal passing through them that they cannot affect what you really hear. Now, the guys at the audio store won't tell you this, because they're trying to sell you something. And the guys who write for the high-end audio magazines won't tell you this, because their job is to make you believe in the wonders of their advertisers' products. But the people who really know the science behind audio, and especially the science about what humans can and cannot hear—they will tell you this.
By a wide margin, the two most important factors in what you actually hear are the speakers and the room you put them in. Not necessarily in that order.
It's a 15x30 open space that has concrete floors and concrete ceilings ( think loft), it takes lots to move air in this space. There is only drywall on one side, the rest are floor to ceiling windows, not sure these are ideal conditions for sound
Man, my first-cut advice would be, buy a pair of headphones. That may be the only way you'll hear anything decent in that room.
But rooms can be fixed. Are you in a position to fix yours?
