Hello Guys!
I am using MIT Oracle MA rca spdif cable with articulation selector. I found such cable is totally enjoyable for me with neutral tonal balance, very deep, articulate with smooth details.
But, the top line of such series is digital MA-X and on the photo it’s looks absolutely similar )
Does anyone compare directly MA vs MA-X ?
Maybe it hasn’t sense )
My audiophile worm continue to gnaw me, how much can there be a strong difference between MA and MA-X ?
Thanks.

Are you sure you're not getting yourself confused? To my knowledge, anything with an articulation selector is in the MA-X line. I looked up the MA digital version 2 and there is no articulator:

Hello Bar81,
I think Rev 2 is a new version without selector. This is marketing ))) Lol

I have exactly same example like MA-X ))
So, i wonder how is difference between MA and MA-X
I have an idea that is absolutely similar cables

Interesting. Best to ask MIT as it's probably a model that was produced just before MA-X. It will depend on whether they were just refining the performance for the MA-X (performance very similar) or it was just a basis for the MA-X design (large difference in performance).

Based on my experience with interconnects, there is no real difference between MA and MA-X interconnects (even the latest MA-X are a touch faster than the MA - otherwise identical performance - but to hear even that difference you need to be using a full loom of the latest MA-X ICs with the new ACC SCs) if you are not using the articulation switch (keeping it at 0). You seem to be using the articulation switch so there might be a large difference.
