    Anyone dealt with Unilet Hi Fi?

    Dealt with them (happily) for years and they are target orientated. Just seen some Kef R900s (with chips) which they were touting for quite a lot. It was a bit embarrassing. :-)

    Cable question (groan)

    And your recommendation would be? Not taking the pee, but if the op has the opportunity to try an expensive OR ANY cable on a trial basis, what's the objection? Try it, and if you don't like it, return it. Nothing ventured, etc. Nighty all.

    Cable question (groan)

    Hi Keith Sure you're correct. I'm no techie. But... amps sound different, speakers too. Or do they? What's wrong with just trying stuff on a returns basis? If cable all sounds the same, what do you recommend? :-)

    Cable question (groan)

    As mentioned. Cables do sound different (as obvs internal amp capacitors do, etc. :-) ) But that's not the point. The point is you try them on a full refund basis and make your own mind up. My amp a measures the same as his amp b so it must sound the same right? :-)

    Shout out to Cambridge Audio Customer Services

    Seconded re CA. I whinged recently that a filter led wasn't working on my 851N (and that I wasn't bothered muchly, so was registering the problem while under warranty), and they sent me a new unit within day of returning mine. They arranged postage for that too.

    Ha! I like my 'X' cables and demo'd them with the 'y' cables. That's all that matters. :-)

    Top 3 changes to your system in 2018

    1. Adding some Martin Logan SL3s 2. Then mounting them on marble plinths as, although I had a laminate floor, it seemed to bounce around like a mad thing. Taking a very long time setting them up. 3. Adding a couple of huge rugs in the 'play area'.

    If you did believe in power cables..

    As a few of us have mentioned a couple of times, just try them for yourselves, pref on a return if not satisfied. What is there to lose? End of!

    What was your stock cable? I'll try that and compare, ta.

    Interconnects - £30, £50, £100

    By heck, another cable thread. :-) I think you need to try them for yourself and make a call - preferably on a moneyback trial. What's to lose? I use Chord but have tried many others. For the folks who tell you they all sound the same, ask for their recommendation of the best cheap cable. :-)

    Off now, but consider if all expensive cables are crap, where do you make the call on budget cables (that all sound the same, smiley icon here). You make a call, right? Are Maplin (rest in peace, etc) cables better than the supplied cables? None believers. What cables are best? I need to try them!

    :-) So various uncategorised and uncompared budget cables are all cool and unbudget ones are taboo, cos, hell, they're dearer than, er, some costly budget ones, and that must be bad, right?

    Hi there. So what cable do you use? Cos I wanna compare it to mine. Thanks.
  15. MickyP

    If you did believe in power cables..

    Which is the best budget cable then and how do you judge it? I hope (holds the arms of his chair) you don't compare it with other budget cables and make a judgement. Noooo...
