I can't belive that I am getting sucked into the world of cable. I recently purchased a new set of speakers (paradigm studio 40's). I hooked them up to my system with the Monster cables I bought in the mid eighties, at a dollar a foot. Sounded great, but I thought why not spend a few bucks and get some new Z1 cables. The sales lit made it sound like the technology had improved a lot and it was only two fifty a foot.
I was amazed that the new cables sounded tinny, almost brittle. I was also mazed buy the decrease in the amount of copper in the cable from old to the new.
Anyway now I have gone from the highly skeptic camp to the believer camp and would like to know some suggestions for warmer sounding inexpensive cables. I have already got a lead on some demo-able Transparent cable.
