Some audiophile expectation bias stupidity from rec.audio.high-end:
A search thru the usenet failed to come up with prodigious posts to do with a great tweak I had heard about somewhere.
I found myself happily out of week-end work around the house lately and decided to replace the bubble wrap around my speaker cable; the air had leaked out of most of the pockets and it seemed like a good idea at the time.
It took the better part of an hour to cover all 16 feet; I had even built some buffers to put between the walls and cable where the cable was pressed snug to the wall..
But when it was done the effort proved worthwhile; bass was noticeably tighter and better delineated, more air around instruments in a clearer soundstage, voices somehow more expressive. On a lark, I did the interconnects as well and that revealed yet another another increase in resolution. It could have been the wine with dinner, I guess, but the next day it still sounded more open and transparent than ever, so… regards, Brian Burke
… then again, maybe it was the wine with dinner.
