I was reading some guy’s forum post on another site the other day, and wasn’t sure whether his opinion could be trusted, so I checked his profile and noticed a link to a gallery of his system. First pic was a fairly nice, neat organized looking home system - Primaluna integrated, generic nice looking tower speakers, etc. Next pic was the back of his system, including crazy thick white garden hose speaker cables, complete with speaker cable risers. I threw up in my mouth a bit. The rest of the cabling looked similar. The guy has probably spent as much on what is connecting his system, as what’s actually making the sound.
