    Too bad you're still breathing. I have one of two problems with you. Either your ears suck and you just can't hear the difference between a good cable, a bad cable and an exceptional cable. Or, you made up your mind that wire is wire before you even tested for yourself.

    By the way, Monster 200 Cable vs. Monster 1000 Cable does not count as testing.

    Get some real equipment and quit playing with your sony boombox.

    That's exceptional speaker wire. I doubt seriously if you could tell the difference between that and most costing more. Just not as 'pretty' as some have eluded too. ;)

    Looking at the posts you have made so far - I assume you have something you would like to sell to us... (based on 22 one line and worthless posts in one day.)

    Only 3 posts to go before you can be ignored in the Flea Market. (except for the vultures threadcrapping on your sale - I certainly hope to be one of them.)

    Even if we were to assume these cables sound identical there are still differences between manufacturers.

    There will be differences in turn around time, customer service, build quality, cost, etc.

    Now THAT I can agree with.
    And, do not forget pride of ownership either ?
    If I pay considerable money for cables, I would expect them to sound better.
    My mind would not disappoint me.

    Unfortunately, scientific ABX testing has never proven there really is any sonic difference in wire.
    I own AudioQuest Cable, Nordost, and some Paul Spielz Anti Cables.
    Got some old tara labs space and time too, and some MIT Cables.
    Bought it used cheap cause it looks cool.

    Gets oohs and aahs from audiophiles, and neighbors who don't know any better.
    Makes me look cool.

    I even built some Jon Risch Cable out of double Belden Coax, and have made speaker wires out of mega twisted pair cables.

    You have tried different cables and found them to sound the same - thats fine. I have tried different cables as well and find them to sound different.

    All that proves is that if someone wants to know, they need to try it themselves. You may hear a difference with my system/environment - I may not hear a difference with yours. Who knows?

    You like your system - great. I like mine too. I recommend to everyone - ask opinions but verify conclusions yourself. Never take someone elses word for what you will or won't hear with your ears from your system in your room.

    Is the signal cable sold as bare cable? I think they're closed for the weekend since I haven't gotten an answer via email.

    I saw this thread a couple days ago and thought best to avoid it. But after looking at the signal cable website there were a couple of items which poped out at me. First is the "Magic Strip". This product seems like it violates some code because it has at 15 amp plug, for 20 amp outlets. It really should have a NEMA 5-20P so you can't plug a device that requires 20 amps in a 15 amp circuit. Second they sell "Cable Riser, and make some iteresting claims.

    I do find them to look quite sexy!!! :D

    Where do you read that it's a 15amp plug? I don't see any "code" violations, please enlighten us?

    It looks like a NEMA 5-15P on the end of it to me, I could be wrong. I also just searched UL for Signal Group and wasn't able to find anything. Again, I could be wrong. If someone has other information that is more accurate please "enlighten" me.

    I 99% sure about this.... 15 amp outlet could be power a 20 amp outlet without a code violation. This is due to the fact the 20 amp device couldn't pull more then 15 amp from the outlet in the first place.

    Good advice!
    Try it for yourself ?
    I do have expensive cables I gathered over the years.
    Use em too.
    No harm in it.
    I just doubt that in an ABX test there will be any difference, but they look cool.

    That's just smart business sense!

    yea he should stop right away...........:p I mean he just gives them away so he can sell them to the rest of us.....you are so wrong Cat, you have no idea what you are talking about, a few cables, is that what you really think???? You do not have a clue, enjoy your BJC.
