Re: How much difference do you think cables makes in the audio quality of your system
I know what you mean!
I ran mid range cables for a long time, and they did improve the sound of my system (especially digital cables) but a year or so back I got a chance to try out Transparent Reference cables in my main rig, and I must say I wasn't really ready for what I heard!
I was warned by some fellow audio freaks it would be a huge leap in sonics, and being skeptical I refused to believe it. Well, when I rewired the rig with these cables I was floored. I agree it was as good as a component upgrade, and this is why I refer to cables as components. Good cables make a huge difference in a good system, and even lessor systems, though depending on the system, you might be better off buying better gear than maxing out cables......
