Default Acoustic Zen Cables...

Hi,
what do you think about AZ WOW and Matrix Reference II cables? How do they compare with other cables in their price range?

depends on how you treat them.

most sound you will get from a cable by disrupting it.

If you put some tension on them and fix the ends very well, much like a harp.

It's been fun reading your comments!
But... aren't you getting off topic?
BTW the question was adressed to Sch3mat1c if you did not noticed...
Cheers!

He, he. Any mention of cables here becomes immediately a discussion of hearing deficiencies. For a more useful and friendlier environment i would rather suggest the cable asylum.

Or you can give him your opinion. As opposed to the Cable Asylum, we actually permit all points of view.

Ah, I am among friends No I don't see how a cable can produce sound, particularly as any effects besides HF shunting due to capacitance are many, many decibels down. -100dB, even in volts, is a factor of almost a million, remember. (Yeah, so it's .1 million... so what )
