Well, let me just say that somehow MIT found out about our little Club Polk demo (See here) , and they liked the innovative idea. They liked it so much, that Gavin Fish, MIT Sales Manager, is offering what I think is a wonderful and unique opportunity for the Club Polk community:
TEST A COMPLETE SET OF THE NEW CVT-1 CABLES, IN YOUR RIG, IN YOUR HOME!!!!!
Thatís right. One 8 ft speaker cable (non bi-wire), and two pairs of 1 meter RCA ICís. The total MSRP of these is over $2,800, so no need to say this is a VERY generous offer (and I must add, speaks wonders about Club Polk and the trust MIT is putting on its members).
So how is this going to work? First of all, the current demo will stop now. The CVT-1's were delivered to me yesterday, and I'll start breaking them in and test them for four weeks. After that they will start rotating as per the list we'll maintain here. Initially I just copied the same list from the original demo, and we'll start from there. Of course anyone in the current list can opt-out if they want to.
REQUIREMENTS TO GET IN THE LIST:
-More than six months in Club Polk of ACTIVE and PRODUCTIVE participation.
-Positive Feedback in our Flea Market.
-You'll have to pay for shipping (and packaging if needed) when you send them to the next in line, with signature required and insurance for half MSRP:
Speaker Cables: $750
IC's: $350 each pair.
-If there's any damage or cables are lost, sender will need to lead and follow up the claim with the carrier.
-Demo will last no more than 4 weeks.
-Sender owns coordinating communications with the next in line (request address, etc)
-Highlighted name means cables are in his/her possession.
-Sender must inform me (via PM) when the cables ship.
-Receiver must inform me (via PM) when cables are received.
-Once you are done, you must post a review in this thread, saying if you found any differences with other cables, be it better or worse.
-Cables will be sent back to MIT once the demo is finished (This could be once there's no more people on the list, or at any time MIT decides they want them back....I don't see a reason they would want to do this, but it's their cables...)
Here's the demo participant's list:
