Audioquest Angel ($1200) on the left. Audioquest Sydney ($200) on the right.



I haven't put on my Angel (silver cable) yet... it's still connected to my macbook. Should I run it to connect from PC to the A2 speakers? Rite now my PC & A2 speakers are connected with that crappy generic cable yuck.

I heard subs sound best out on the patio.

Which will give you the added satisfaction of running a $58,000 cable under the house!

If you've noticed by all the responses - nobody wants to be the first to say it.


meh -- what do I have to lose.


Send the cable back and buy a vacation.


Your going to need it when you realize you've been so scammed so hard on the cable prices.



Buy one of these.

Better yet - before you send the cable back buy the monoprice cable and blind test which cable you like better with a friend switching them out.


Your gonna need that vacation to cool off.




Here's the second cable match you need - http://www.monoprice.com/products/product.asp?c_id=102&cp_id=10218&cs_id=1021816&p_id=9297&seq=1&format=2

I think you are wasting keystrokes arguing with him. Anyone who spent that much on subwoofer cables is going to be so emotionally invested in them that they will hear a difference whether it exists or not. Logic is not going to work here.

Don't forget to upgrade the "crappy" rca jacks on the sub and all the tiny little copper traces on the plate amp. While upgrading that, you can change all the capacitors and resistors to some high quality audiophile ones. Do the same for the computer and sound card.

I love how he stuffed the new sub in his A/V cabinet, yet he has an ugly-ass computer case that doesn't match anything just hanging out in the open...

Not in a blind test, that's the point. It can't be done.

This guy has got to be trolling. Just enjoy the amount of effort he went into making it look legit. People are just not this dumb...they don't exist. And if they did, they'd prob walked in front of a bus by now.

Trolololol

I just had to look at this, as I followed the original post for a bit. However, this 're-post/update' of sorts is...well...just — I don't know. I won't bother commenting on the myriad of things wrong with this ideology; it's just too obvious, obviously. What I find most puzzling is that IF he is trolling (which I cannot understand taking part in in the least anyway; it's an odd cyber phenomenon...adults partaking in a child's perception of what I can only speculate as amusement), why would someone approaching 2.300 posts bother to do so, only to risk jeopardizing any shred of credibility he may have had contained within his past as a member?


Cable debates, posturing, etc...I'm way past that. I just want to know why.
