    Thumbs up Homegrown Audio - SC1 - Silver(Version1) - Review/ Demo

    Please refer to this thread before posting:

    CABLE DEMO PROGRAM - GUIDELINES

    DEMO # 10 :

    Homegrown Audio SC1-Silver(Version 1)

    I picked these up from our own Dragon1952(Cliff). I laugh when I think about him being stressed about whether people will like the cable or not....welcome to the club man ; ) I'm sure they will demo nicely. Stay tuned for some reviews folks.

    NOTE: I am using data from the newer SC-1, as the old data doesn't exist. I have contacted HGA about this fact, and perhaps they will be able to provide the actual data for the demo cable. It's the same basic design, but the actual brand of materials may have changed since the introduction.

    The Cable-

    I will update this field when they pull the head out of ass, and make it available.

    Just took these out of the system after about a 2 week trial. First let me say that they seemed to be very well made. The only downfall of the appearance was the shrink wrap. I wish there was a better way to terminate the shrink wrap where the wires come out. Some kind of boot or something. The connector side of the shrink wrap looked very nice. I also like the braided wire.

    But, who cares how they look. In my system, you can't see there wires anyway, so onto the sound department.

    Amp: Adcom 545
    Pre: Nad 1600
    TT: Dual 704
    CDP: Pioneer DV-578A
    Polk SDA-2's
    AR interconnect on everything besides where I put the HG's
    12GA lamp cord speaker wire

    I used the Homegrown interconnect between the pre-amp and the amp. My first impression was....hmmmmphhh. To be honest, I heard zero difference between this interconnect and the radio shack gold IC that it replaced. Seeing as I saw no difference I left it in for 2 weeks.

    Today I gave the HG's one last listen. I put in Steve Earl's "Ain't Ever Satisfied" cd and cranked up "Copperhead Road". I then switched the IC back to the Rat Shack gold and replayed the same song. My wife and I both immediatly, as in after about 2 seconds, not exagerating, said "EWWWWW". It was like someone had sucked all the life out of my system. It was very apparent that a change had been made. Everything just sounded FLAT. The soundstage had been reduced, the highs were not as crisp, it was like the magic was gone. It is hard to belive that I noticed zero difference when I put the HG's in the system and then noticed such a huge difference when taking them out, but that is exactly what happened. And like I said, my wife and I both had the same reaction. Actually my reaction was more of a "AAAARRRRGGGHH" and her's was more of an "EWWWWW" but you get the idea.

    In summary, how much do you want for them?

    Thanks for giving me the chance to try them. I really enjoyed them.
