    Why on earth does anyone use valves in this day and age. It's truly baffling.

    Using some isolation under your electronics will do absolutely nothing. Speaker positioning is likely the issue.

    advise re MM cartridge

    Go for the AT95EX. It's a lot better than the E.

    Far from being negative, I think this particular test is encouraging for those of limited means that want hifi. It says concentrate on finding speakers you like the sound of and don't worry unduly about the rest.

    I believe you have an agenda.

    Well you kind of would say that. This is a famous and interesting blind test not entirely about cables. Are these people deaf, do you think? http://matrixhifi.com/ENG_contenedor_ppec.htm

    It depends what things you are referring to. Bits of wire will sound the same if their important characteristics are the same.

    But if you hear a live performance you are hearing a flat response as your ears perceive it, so to accurately reproduce that same sound from your speakers requires that both the recording device and your speakers should have a response that is as flat as possible.

    Of course it did, you splashed the cash, you got the placebo effect you wanted. Homeopathy for electricity.

    So according to you nobody can win the lottery. Correct?

    Why would anyone bother when all they have to support them is placebo and a technically dodgy video? A speaker cable just needs to be of low series impedance and of normal construction, it doesn't need to be able to connect a radio transmitter to an aerial.

    Because they are just ordinary wire!

    Every electronics engineer already knows that.

    I have a cheap Behringer DAC on a computer run via 6 metre phono leads into the amp. It sounds stunning on Radio Paradise FLAC. I would be fretting about it if I was a clueless foo fan. Ooh, what if I bought Nordost cables and spent a fortune on a DAC......
