    You said it! This speaker cable A/B blind listening test undertaken by a “Golden Eared” audiophile was amusing.

    Impedance 4 / 6 /8 ohm question ?

    @TheFlash what amplifier was running the Boenicke W8's when you listened to them?

    Been there, done that. But I’ve never used it for Radio Paradise FLAC so I’m unable to give you any subjective impressions.

    True, but until it’s finished we won’t be able to measure how long it was!

    I don’t recall a single person on this thread stating “choose your gear by measurements alone”.

    I’ve not read them yet, but they are in my reading list. My speaker cables are as short as possible (1.5m) as my amplifier is slap bang in the middle of my speakers. They are impressive in girth, quite amusing considering the physical size of the banana plugs, but they do the job.

    I do have some Nordost speaker cable, Purple Flare, I replaced it with Chord Company Signature as I got some at my required length. It all sounded the same as the QED Silver Anniversary cable it replaced.

    But if it looks pretty, its worth spending extra.

    I’m no gnetlemen () but if the wire used to connect up your system has that much influence on your subjective enjoyment of it, then I do wonder why/how you came to the decision to select those components in the first place?

    You could become John Wayne Not Bit Perfect! If you hadn’t taken god knows how many months, umpteen home demos and almost one thousand posts before making your mind up you wouldn’t be in this position! I wouldn’t worry about it, hell, I bought an endgame CD player that became discontinued a month later! I definitely won’t lose any sleep over it.
