    that sounds a little funny, out of context.

    I just love these discussions. So much passion. Someone needs to start one titled " What are the best interconnects".

    It's an odd thing about which to get passionate, from my perspective. Loudspeakers, sure. Sources ('specially analog ones), no doubt. Amplifiers, all righty then.

    Pieces of wire...

    Well Mark, I can get passionate about caps, resistors, spikes, speaker stands, binding posts, IEC's, solder, outlets, etc., so why not cables? :)

    @DarqueKnight I am pretty sure the Saul Alinsky method is being used here.

    Oh, OK. Thanks. I had to look up Saul Alinsky. In "Rules for Radicals" he wrote:

    "The job of the organizer is to maneuver and bait the establishment so that it will publicly attack him as a 'dangerous enemy'. The hysterical instant reaction of the establishment [will] not only validate [the organizer's] credentials of competency but also ensure automatic popular invitation."

    How about Himalayan salt lamps? No joke.... I was reading an article to my wife (basically making fun of) about the use of salt lamps in the listening room.... apparently it benefits sound quality. Can anyone guess what I got for Christmas?

    From what I read there is scientific evidence that it cleans air. So far.. I find it relaxing to use in my listening room.

    And if those salt lamps clean the air then the Himalayas and India should be prestine air right.

    Eleven pages and counting and it seems like everyone is wrong here. There is no difference if you use expensive cables or or just cheap hardware store lamp cord IF you couple them up with Brilliant Pebbles. Seems that they correct all of the problems in cables. They are a "unique and comprehensive system for tuning the room and audio system based on special physical properties of highly symmetrical crystal structures".

    "Brilliant Pebbles addresses specific resonance control and RFI/EMI absorption problems associated with audio electronics, speakers and cables, as well as acoustic wave problems associated with the listening room boundaries and the 3-dimensional space within the boundaries. "

    They are cheaper than expensive cables interconnects too!

    If I did that Ron, the wife would be looking up straight jackets on Amazon. Besides, if I sat down with a lap full of rocks, she'd probably come along and plant a cactus in there....which has the possibility of being very painful.

    When you try the MIT’s, you’ll hear F1 Nut in the background saying; “See, I told you so.”
