You know what, you have your opinion, I have mine and there is no way we can convince one another. Let us leave it this way. You inspired me though to play a bit with my room setting.

With all due respect blondas, but if you are implying you can pick the differences in sounds based on chords and cables you are just plain silly
It is truly laughable when audiophile types make such silly claims.
If people claim they like it more, it is because they were in a different mood than before, among other things. It has zero to do with the sound. As this test clearly proves, all these nuances you guys claim to hear are games being played in your head.
Have a read:
First of all names that you call me make you no partner in this discussion. If it is your arguement, go play with kids in a playground. There are many links saying one thing or another and many discussions about it, so citing one that suits your needs is rather immature.
Secondly, I do not call myself any audiophile, it is all for pleasure, I have no fancy equipment and no high expectations. But I guess you know better what is in my head and ears, and you know what, stick to your opinion, I really do not care. I bet there are many people thinking like I but afraid to write here because of guys like you, when a discussion ends "when you claim so, you are silly". I will know better next time when having controversial opinions and probably not share it here.
