want to know is what did you do with all those other expensive cables that didn't pass your strict standards? Surely you didn't foist them off on some unsuspecting non-audiophile? If you did the decent thing and either kept them or better still destroyed them then after trying a dozen $100 cables followed by your 'Sweet Spot' Audioquest $1000 cable you actually spent $2200 on snake oil. In my mind that's a lot of well lubricated snakes...
I make sure what I buy has a trial period,or my dealer just loans me what I want to test for comparison.
There is a fine line between snake-oil and actually hearing/seeing a difference..there has been plenty of expensive gear/cords etc.. That I could not see buying because there was no difference.. Then there's been some where there was a very nice upgrade..anyway I guess this is not the place to talk about cables..I thought these threads were for audiophiles..not some guy in a white coat/glasses pointing a pen at me telling me its not possible, my ears/eyes are wrong!
There are a lot of people out there that believe in these upgrades,they I.M me all the time telling me they also use these cables and they know they make a difference in there systems..they just do not reply to these posts because the vultures swoop down and ridicule you for your belief's.. Well it is what it is,and what it is,is very ,very good!
