    floating speaker cables.....on the cheap

    Wellfloat footers seem to be the top choice now among the Audio Exotics crowd for large speakers: https://audioexotics.vanillacommunity.com/discussion/13118/well-float-a-new-game-changer-on-mechanical-vibration-management Haven't tried any Wellfloat products.

    floating speaker cables.....on the cheap

    I had been using the Shunyata lifters for years and then added some Audioquest Fog Lifters. After listening I ended up with a mix of the two. Not sure there's any other way but trial and error with cable lifters.

    CH Precision L10 & M10 : My votes for the Best SS amps (for the past 5 yrs till 6-2021)

    Don't know what the issue is with reviewers. Of course you listen with your own ears which, if you are a serious audiophile, you've educated over many years of listening. For me reviewers have always provided an invaluable service. First of all reviews provide exposure to many more...

    CH Precision L10 & M10 : My votes for the Best SS amps (for the past 5 yrs till 6-2021)

    Haven't heard SS "clean" that wasn't accompanied by SS "lean". But again, maybe the CH gear will surprise me at Capital Audiofest.

    CH Precision L10 & M10 : My votes for the Best SS amps (for the past 5 yrs till 6-2021)

    "What really impressed me are their Naturalness & Realness. They have more of everything than CH's previous amps and possibly ss amps of every other brands …. beauty, timbre, density, details/resolution, macro-dynamics and micro-dynamics, ambience and acoustic information ... etc." Without...

    Who’s up for a $2800 fuse?

    Curious to see how the yellow compares with the new Synergistic Purple - they are about the same price.

    Who’s up for a $2800 fuse?

    Can you distinguish/describe any significant sonic differences between the Violet and Yellow QSA fuses based on your experience with them?

The Urban 001 which had the...

    What is it about most audiophile cable designs that make cables sound like Tone Controls?

    You are right - it is not going anywhere. I will take your crossing out of earlier comments as your answer, i.e., you would value neutral cables over cables that would make your system sound more like live acoustic music. I of course would go with the cables that moved the system closer to the...

    What is it about most audiophile cable designs that make cables sound like Tone Controls?

    Now you are effectively changing your post. The context in which I used "neutrality" was taken directly from your post, i.e., wire that doesn't add or subtract anything leaving the general character of a component fundamentally unchanged. Direct quote from your original post: "If a wire causes...

    What is it about most audiophile cable designs that make cables sound like Tone Controls?

    Nothing new or "different" about using live music as a reference. I (and every other audiophile I know) have been doing that since the first publication of "The Absolute Sound". Attending as many live performances as possible certainly helps keep the sound of real instruments and voices in...

    List of Brands/Exhibitors for Capital Audiofest 2021- FYI:

    Its a good show - manageable scale but still plenty of exhibitors, and there are a shitload of restaurants nearby. The one in the hotel is decent too. I attended every year pre-pandemic.
