Hmm...I still dont know what to believe and what to reject; maybe some of them are true lies!
BTW ReignofC -- How are the Ushers doing in your system? I've been on the lookout for monitors with better bass (like the Totem Mani 2 signature) without a compromise on the quality and detail of midrange and treble. Do the Ushers handle all kinds of music well ?
How many of us would give a second look to a CAT 6 cable? But today, it is the backbone of the computer industry carrying trillion of bytes of data across the world day after day after day. Such a CAT 6 cable modified to suit the audio industry, believe me, will effortlessly carry digital data without losing a single byte.
Analogue signals moving from one point to another are just electrical signals. it should be easy to prove the capability of a cable without getting into emotional tangles. There is no way that the human ear can hear something that cannot be measured by a high end oscilloscope.
Thanks ReignofC. I'm not in Bangalore nowadays but just might be, soon. A couple of Ushers have come up on Audiogon; let's see. Surfing their forums for views on the Be718 I found that youve joined recently so welcome to the A'gon community. I also read that they need solid power to be driven so my CJ tube amp probably wont do it. I have a Plinius SS which is 175W rms into 8 ohms - will that be good enough or will I need to invest in a power amp putting out 500W+ ?
