    Yes. My daughter and I were playing Rush Exit Stage Left last night with the lights out and I think during The Trees she said "Dad I think I heard something behind me...".

    We shouldn't have to be careful about pointing out the obvious. The issue should have been dealt with a long time ago.

    Digging up an old thread here, this is sound advice that I plan to try. My initial reaction to Wireworld Mini Eclipse 8 is similar to @audioluvr - WW has more top end detail and better imaging compared to my Zu Libtecs. However in A/B testing I'm also finding that it's coming at the expense of same bass... and maybe a little excitement.

    I don't feel that one is absolutely better than the other. It feels like the two cables are trying to fill a different brief. I'm going to run the WW for a few weeks and see if the extra bass of the Libtecs impress me as much as the WW's imaging and space have impressed me today.

    Thanks for the comparison! Since I got my libtecs on eBay for less than $100 shipped, I think I’ll happily stick with them for awhile...

    I would 100% recommend that. The Libtecs on Ebay are probably one of the best deals in audio right now when it comes to bang for the buck.

    What would it take, one email or phone call from someone at Polk to someone at Vanilla, and then one or two clicks by a Vanilla employee to give a member here the ability to clean up spam and delete unwanted/inappropriate posts/threads? I don't understand why that can't at least do that.
