    Hello, Jesse. It's not so much that they didn't like each other, it was just a case to where the difference between what I was using and the SG's were imperceptible for some reason. I don't even remember at this point what I was using at the time but I wouldn't mind evaluating/trying another set out [depending on whether or not it's entry level on the next go'round]. Perhaps you missed the last question I had asked...

    Ah, I thought you had the same problem as others had with that combo. You remember Trey's speakers at Ted's, right?

    Call MIT and ask Lisa who would be the best to answer your question.

    Oh, no, no, no. No issues like that. I'll contact Lisa per your suggestion. Thank you, sir.

    Round 5 featuring MIT's new StyleLine SL series cables will be starting in the very near future, so stay tuned.

    I'm fairly certain at this point there will be two demos going at the same time, a US 48 states demo and a Canadian demo......I need my head examined.

    What I'm thinking right now as follows;

    (1) 10 ft. pair of StyleLine SL-12 speaker cables (single runs)
    (1) 10 ft. single Styleline SL-12 speaker cable (center channel)
    (2) 1 meter pairs of StyleLine SL-8 RCA interconnect cables
    (1) 2 meter StyleLine Plus USB cable
    (1) 2 meter HDMI cable

    I think that should cover folks that want to demo these cables in their 2 channel music or HT rigs along with computer/server based systems.

    I'm open to suggestions.

    Jesse, put me in I would love to try these even though it would mean moving my equipment around because the cables would be a little on the short side. I would really like to try these after all of the comments I have read about the other MIT cables.

    hrm sounds enticing, however the only cables I'd be able to test would be the pair of speaker cables, the interconnects and the HDMI cable. Would be fun to give it a shot and see what it'd all do to my humble rig...once it's correctly fixed mind you.

    I could do with that hdmi to bridge between my perfectwave mk2 dac and ps audio perfectwave transport. The usb would be good to see if it takes down the wireworld platinum and putt them up against wireworld platinum ic's. The speaker cables could also go head to head against my wireworld silver eclipse. gold eclipse and the MIT oracles. Ohhh what a fund week that would make for comparisons running the premium tube mono'sfrom primaluna using that new BAT preamp I scored from bill...... in other words, COUNT ME IN!!!

    That's fine, I am just trying to have something for everyone.





    Talk to me people, is that list good or would you like something else, different series, different lengths, different quantities, etc.?

    I'm no MIT expert, but since S3 speaker cables are expensive and it was recommended to not go for the highest end in case it didn't work for me, I'd have no issues with the entry level type cables. It's all about discovery with this hobby I've found.

    txcoastal, and this is would a learning experience. Is that a bad thing ?

    I don't know much about cables other than something about you can't solder with certain copper etc. But I digress, I'm wet behind the ears in this now. Why not try some stuff in my own system to see if it makes better or worse. Never know til you plug something in as I've found.

    Would this be a demo with no obligations? I would be interested for my revamped HT after my basement remodel or for one of my two channel systems. Is this up and coming? I would love to see how these would make a difference in one of my systems, if I like a less expensive set of what they offer would be right up my alley as I have spent quite a few dollars as of late on remodel and stuff on the basement Ht upgrade.

    The only obligations are you MUST write a review here on the forum and you have to ship them to the next person on the list. That's it.

    Is this up and coming?
    Yes, I'll get things rolling after the first of the year.

    No not at all, I always believe take every opportunity to demo and don't rely on other peoples opinions but use them as guide lines in your search. It took me 2 years to piece together my first 2chnl rig.
    I also, drove around to a dozen plus dealers all over Texas and went to different shows to get my ears on gear.

    As I said, the StyleLine SL SERIES is MIT's entry level cable. The StyleLine SL 5 would be the least expensive.

    Are they entry level compared price wise to Monoprice or BJC? No, but they are not just cable either.

    Opinions matter, especially when your as green as I am, that said however one piece of my living room system the amp I just bought cause someone said it'd be a perfect match for my towers and yes I agree with that. I'm learning, your learning, hell we're all learning still. If I can gain some insight on higher end cables than what I have then great. That alone will help guide the next upgrades to the system. At this moment I know where else I want to sink some cash into it and that's the power cord for the amp, but that will happen once I find out more about the differences in those. No I won't spend a huge amount but anything has to be better than the cord I got with it as it closely resembles the power cords I've gotten with cheap computer power supplies.

    Not trying to spark debate here but if I get a chance to demo some MIT goodness that could possibly come pre-broken in by someone else and hear differences good, bad or indifferent then I can see where else I can get an upgrade in the SQ of what I call my humble system. The bedroom system however, is just fun, the living room system I seriously want to sound as good as it can and each piece I've bought for it has gone towards that end. If cables can make a sizeable difference then that's the next thing on the list.

    Not knock the system, as those who would not normally get a chance to listen to a higher end cables need to get on board.

    Others may disagree, but I'd look at your pre and source before investing any money in a power cord for your amp. The first power cord I'd be throwing money at would be the one that connects to either of those two items. I'd also consider interconnects before that power amp cord, though you could probably still gain bigger benefits by devoting that money to your pre/source.

    I'm just waiting for several legit reviews to hit on the Parasound P5, I like the input side of it as it'll allow me to run what I want, how I want. But how it'll jive with what I have so far, won't be known til I get some hard data. Then again I could go a completely different direction, who knows? :)

    Besides, I already popped that weak sauce cord (18/3) into a low power PC and snagged it's 14/3 for the amp. It helped quite a bit. Cost, $0

    I see. My intentions are to offer the TOTL entry level cables as a sort of middle ground between the SL 5's and the next level up, which would be either the SL-Matrix, Matrix HD or the Shotgun. We demoed the Shotgun series the last time and since this is MIT's new series with new technology it seemed only logical.

    "A doctrine fostered by a delusional, illogical minority and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end."
