    MQA A Hoax and a Con ------Bob Carver

    Bob Carver and his company produced some great gear and rocked the assembled hifi gentry with his demos and products. Then (I believe) he was ousted from his own company. I think he's earned the right to say what the hell he likes. :-)

    Mains cables

    Gotcha! (Taps nose)

    Mains cables

    Cue some sage saying they can't possibly, etc... :-)

    Mains cables

    Ha! It's close to the originals, maybe better, maybe the same. The point is I tried a different, more expensive brand and made a call on the sound - preferring the cheaper wasn't what I expected but, hell, who cares? So, for whatever reason, cables make a difference. Most are on a returns basis, so if you don't like you don't buy. What's to lose?

    Well, replaced with some 'cheap' (ish) DPA cables and the life has come back. Go sit in the corner folks who say they make no difference.

    I didn't say that, though. I said it was better in some areas, lousier (to my ears) in others. :-)

    Martin Logan electrostats. For a long time I've been divvering about trying electrostat speakers and this was my first punt. I quite like. Everyone needs to try it!

    Oh... that's torn it. :-) (I knew it was a minefield.) So... ML owners, what mains cable do you use and why? :-)

    Mains cables

    I know... Just picked up some secondhand ML SL3s and I like what they do so threw 80-odd quid at new mains cables and the sound changed dramatically: more defined treble, warmth but, maybe, also maybe, a bit life sucking (that's a new term!). These were budget MCRU cables. Anyone had experience of these speakers, please, and cables to match? Appreciate it's a minefield and folks' have different tastes. Thank you so much. Mike
