    I heart cable threads.

    But seriously, I was in the "cables don't matter" camp a few years ago. Since then I've added $2k fronts, a $700 sub and am most likely adding a tube pre to the mix very soon. I sure as sh*t ain't using any Home Depot zip wire to deliver the signal like I used to.

    You won't know if you won't try. Seriously, don't get all wrapped up in the price tags.
    Too many good quotes to list..waiting for some fresh ammo. :)

    I wasn't getting crazy at all. I was just pointing out that I had learned to try things before judging thanks to the people on this forum. And I suggest you do the same. Your comments would then hold much more weight...otherwise its just words, and words tend to get annoying without anything backing them up. In fact, they can appear troll-like.

    I have tried things, and have come to the conclusions I have come to. Hence the reason I post what I do. Been there, done that. What makes you think otherwise? Just a wild guess here but maybe the reason I catch so much flak is for trying things expensive, AND cheap. Yes, I don't mind giving up my AQ Carbon for a $9 25ft HDMI cord straight from China off Ebay to see what the differences are. Guess what? I've been so impressed I've been using that insanely "Cheap" cable for about 10 days now on my BenQ W1070. You never know if you don't try! Exactly what I posted the first time around.

    I've only seen one other person put their money where their mouth is, and he got ridiculed or ignored much like myself.


    As for words...this is a fricking internet forum. There's only so much you can do to prove a point or show what you've done yourself to someone who's unwilling to listen! What is this I'm doing? Oh yeah that's right...TYPING. WORDS.

    What does that have to do with speaker cables?

    I think better cables would be more noticeable if I could hear better. They make us do a OSHA test at work every two years my results were not to good.
