    I'm Andrew.

    Default My "REAL SOUND" experiment.

    So, I very rarely believe in the hype that most cable companies spin nowadays and generally buy products that have been road tested by fellow Audiophiles. I've recently found Jeff's place over at www.jeffsplace.me and have been following his posts. I decided that I too would try the "real sound" experiment. Sourcing some of the cables is a real bugger and can be expensive. So you will need the following

    Duelund DCA16GA speaker cable - Mine came from the USA
    Belden 8402 microphone cable - Mine came from POLAND!
    Switchcraft 3502AAU RCAís - Mine came from the UK

    I would strongly recommend you read Geoff's posts if you wish to participate. I've been using the Duelund DCA16GA for about 20 hours now and need about 100 hours usage before a so called "transformation" occurs. I will be making the Belden/Switchcraft IC's tomorrow when I have a little time.

    He seems very keen on Duelund in general.

    All that banging on about "tone", reminds me of what people used to say about a new radiogram: "It's got a nice tone"!

    Typical enthusiastís blog - self indulgent and boring.

    A blog, by it's very nature, is self-indulgent. The bloke's got good taste in speakers, at least give him that

    I needed a spare set of speaker cables anyway I have 5 pairs of speakers sitting in the listening room at the moment with only one pair of speaker cables, so why not try something different. It's not actually all that bad.

    Interesting to see some classic British kit in among the usual American stuff.

    Typical enthusiast’s blog - self indulgent and boring.

    Unfortunately I don't think self-indulgent comes close. This blog makes Dr Frasier Crane seem humble and unpretentious, the pieces about him drinking his obscurista coffee in the morning are
