Maybe it's wise to detox yourself to listen with clean ears.  :D

Only after using the speaker cable for half a year does it sound optimal.
How copper and silver characteristics changes and adapt, it's a wonderful world.  :)

Are you comparing me with this member just because I said I like CDs? :-\

No you were talking about audiophile crazies.  That made me remember her was all.

Seems appropriate (on the subject of audiophiles and speaker cable):

OK, better than I thought. In my limited experience with SH forum (clicks based on Google search hits), I saw precious little musical discussion, just the nuttiness. I concluded the signal/noise ratio was too low to merit further exploration.

I signed up there in 2006, back then the forum was much smaller and the overall vibe was more positive and music/sound quality centric.

In the last 4 or 5 years it has become truly miserable; the misogyny, racism, xenophobia, anti-science/vaccine/conspiracies, etc. The signal/noise ratio might be among the worst I have ever seen in a forum. I'm only subscribed to 4 or 5 threads, all but one of them are either classical or jazz related where the posters are much more educated.

Unfortunately that’s literally true of a lot of his late recordings… ::)
