    Default MIT Oracle Matrix 90 Rv1 review

    Yes I am talking about the MIT oracle matrix 90 speaker cables. I am just blown away and for the first time I dont think that I need to do critical listening for evaluation. The cables just sing and make everything SOUND FANTASTIC!!!! even really shiit recordings have something special added.

    There is a certain kind of spaciousness around everything you hear and a tone thats just beautiful and sweet. I am fortunate enough to have wireworld eclipse, silver eclipse and gold eclipse on hand. I have been switching them out and back in and out lol. The difference is astonishing as nothing sounds the same without them. My biggest surprise was how much better they sounded than the gold eclipse, how can it be that big a difference because the gold eclipse I have retail for $1150 and the MIT's go for $13500 so its only a 2k diff.

    There is an HD switch on the network boxes ' a gimmick I thought, it must be because how can a switch improve the listening without ruining the purity' Well I was dead wrong as soon as I hit that switch everything sounded even better. More detail, bass and energy thats very pleasing to the ear.

    My best way to describe the switch is like the darbee dvp 500 video processor. When I first got the dvp I thought a bluray is sharp and my projector can only display a certain amount of data so there has to be some ringing or edge enhancement that takes away from the film like image I am accustomed too? Wrong the darbee brings out everything your missing to the surface and puts a 3 dimensional effect on the image that makes everything jump right out at you becoming more lifel like. Well this is exacly how the MIT cables are and like the darbee, when you dont have it on then everything else is just a pile of schiit and it would take months to return to normal satisfaction after experiencing.

    I am now officially spoiled rotten by these cables and cursed for life because should anything ever happen and I am no longer in possession of them I will be cursed with the knowledge of what I am missing. So my next step is more MIT for the future but I wont go there and I was told that the ones the step up from these can actually make some things sound worse because they are that good.

    Without pulling out the calculator, something seems a little off ;). Just messing with ya, glad to see your enjoying the cables. Blows my mind having cables that cost more than your car but to each his own, and if you listen to music more than you drive I guess it makes sense haha.

    I do not mention anywhere anywhere that I paid full retail. Yes I have the cables listed as I got a phone call from a dealer who has some other goodies for me to try. If you check the completed listings you can see the dac and transport I sold on the 25 of dec. I get trade in electronics for the huge inventory of cables I have as I am a sucker for a deal. I have about 30k worth right now.

    I dont think its anyones business what I choose to do with money I work very hard to earn or what I choose to buy because its a free country.

    Lets not forget guys I have only dipped my toes into the 2 channel waters since I started on around may I think so who knows how awesome or crap my rig will be a year from now.

    All well and good except for the fact you had the MIT's listed, last update on Dec 26, 2013, before you made the original post in this thread on 1/9/14.

    It's not what you do with your money, it's all the BS you post here.

    I put these up on ebay at a price that should they sell I could easily buy another set. What does this have to do with this review I posted.

    Do you take meds? If so, they aren't working. If not, you need to start.

    If I put these up for sale its because I have reasons that I dont have to explain because its my business. This review is my own personal thoughts about the performance of these cables that I chose to share for the benefit of others.
