Geez marce. Pretty thin skinned for someone who can dish it out so easily. I'd take a break from this site for a while and enjoy life if I was you. Get some perspective back. 😀

Only after a break-in period too.😉

 

I find that after a proper break in, the USB cable becomes more supple and you can most easily here the difference when snapped across the bare back!

no, not at all

 

he specifically asked for all opinions, no matter how worthless or ill-founded

 

What you mean is: "We [should be] talking basic electronics and physics though here."


"The overwhelming majority [of audiophiles] have very little knowledge, if any, about the most basic principles and operating characteristics of audio equipment. They often base their purchasing decisions on hearsay, and the preaching of media sages. Unfortunately, because of commercial considerations, much information is rooted in increasing revenue, not in assisting the audiophile. It seems as if the only requirements for becoming an "authority" in the world of audio is a keyboard."

So Im the OP of this post.   

 

I know this post has turned into a super hi jacked post.  

 

So,  I got my blackcat silverstar usb.  

 

This was what i was looking for.  This cable sounds better than my AQ cinnamon.    The bass is way more fuller stronger.   The air  and treble seem balanced.   The rhythm and pace of the music has that groove that makes you tap your foot.  

 

I know there are people here who think im crazy.  But Not all cables make me get into the groove.  This cable does.  way more than my other cables.    This is only day two of this cable.   I hope with none stop playing it gets better.

This is just a beginning ...

And that what the people who keep interjecting in the belief that such thinking is nonsense, and feel the need to "correct you" seem incapable of understanding ... by using a cable that alters the distortion characteristics of the replay chain, through subtly adjusting the overall integrity of the system, you have got closer to be being to hear more of what the recording is all about, and are less aware of the sound signature of the gear.

 In these days of tight discretionary household budgets, I doubt that you get too many customers requesting a refund after purchasing your Lush cables !

They can make money.😜

 

 They can for Peter because his Lush cables have been very well received by many A.S. members.:)

So,  Its been 2 days!!

 

I know this is an older model of blackcat cables.  Silverstar usb.   But   everyday i come home and listen.   HOLY  Schi--t!!

 

I put my AQ back in and cant handle it.   

 

So today.   Its like i dont even have a cable hooked up.   I know people say a veil is lifted.  I get it now.   I play guitar.   So if you play against a metronome.   You know what rhythm is and pace is.   This cable is fast.   Every other cable i have doesnt have pace. 

 

Its timing,  it feel,  its what you feel when your a musician. 

 

This cable has it.   nothing seems like its bland,  falling behind.  

 

I know  this is just my opinion.   

 

But any of you who want to tell me science is all that matters.   What does your heart tell you for what you enjoy ,  Maybe you should measure feelings,  your groove.   

 

This blackcat,  has transform  my passion for computer audio.   Up till 1 year ago,  i hated usb audio.    Today,  I love having 5000 songs at my finger tips!!

Glad you're happy. At the end of the day, that's all that really matters.

That's  What im getting here!!
