What was between the lines was: "If you have cables issues, it is obvious you have a BIG problem else-where"
In other words, if your house begin to shake at the slightest breath of air, don't try to protect your house from wind, look around the foundations.

I prefer light-hearted ones, bordering on the frivolous.

Richard, do you use your own design " Marsh " power amps and preamp in your system ? triamp with the Quads as mid / top end ?

I'm rather fond of locomotive jump starting cables as speaker cables - at least until the train starts, then it sounds like one of those 1960's stereo demonstration records with a train running through your living room....

I am using something like that for the connection between the OPPO 105 and my STAX Lambda headphone amp. What is the brand? Mine is: JPS Labs Superconductor 3
I like it, just fine!
