    Thanks to Brian I have have some ICs made up to start this fun experiment. I must admit I'm very sceptical and Jeff the chap that inspired this seems to excessively eulogise DUelund products, but this is just for fun. I'll post some pix over the next few days.

    except that in this instance, at least it won't be wasted and it sounds like cables aren't the thing that you're really short of.....a few extra rooms to house your growing 'speaker collection seem to be where the real need is at!


    A Blog's a blog's a blog and people are free to write whatever they like. "Salt" and "Pinch of" are words that spring to mind (being very kind) in this particular case

    As for the 100 hours thing for the cable to mysteriously change it's physical properties in some magical way....well, the less said, the better really

    Paul,

    I honestly think it's a load of shit what he claims bit it's a little bit of fun really and I totally agree with you and Simon with your comments especially about the physical properties of the cables. Should prove a good laugh to the lads & lasses on AOS. I'm not taking this too seriously

    There seems to be (still?) an entire mindset that equates Price with quality: 'Mo' $ means Better'...well dohhh.
    PT Barnum had it right.
    Son once wanted to sell a car that he was tired of.
    He priced it fairly for a quick sale... there were Zero responses to his advert.
    Suggested he double the price.
    Very next day there was a bidding war.
    Everybody was happy
    My audio bits: Thorens / diy phono, CD/dvd player(s), diy pre, F6, Tannoy Golds in my boxes / my xovers, and of course all strung together with basic diy Wires
    Lots of Cd's, yet more audio files, a couple of hundred semi worn Lps.

    Did look a bit before my eyes cried enough. Just one look at all the crud he needs in order to listen to music and it's obvious we live in different worlds. he is a hi-fi fan first and foremost and has bought into every bit of snake oil imaginable.

    Cable cookers - good grief

    I have more than enough leads of all types at the moment. But I tend to make my own from good quality cable. To be honest, if I want more, I'll likely be using Cardas or Audio Note offerings for interconnects and Transparent Audio for speaker cables. These are a known quantity to me and provide excellent sound quality. Yes, I know their upper end stuff has loony prices. I use the sensibly priced wire.

    Just had a look. Can't see any. They do show up on eBay though.

    I may have some seventies leads with those on in the workshop. If I get a chance tomorrow, I'll take a look. If I can find them and if there actually are any.
