The most amazing thing is that there will plenty of cheapskates who will invest in these speakers to impress people and then balk at putting forth the extra money required to get real high-quality wiring. You need true wave compression and audiomaxic reflection to actually enjoy a sound system like this. I mean, would you buy a high-end Ferrari without spending a little extra for high quality tires? No, and the Monster cables are right there, dumbass. Or maybe you just want to use some string and tin cans.

Tr0mBoNe: Have you tried lowering the ambient air pressure in your house?


OK, that one got me to snerk.

nulluspixiusdemonica: Tr0mBoNe: The signal is just smoother and doesn't attenuate the high frequency sibilance and undertones.

Only if you take the time to gently massage every inch of the line with rosewood oil and condition it using scientifically formulated tracks based on the gut-rumblings of a pregnant elephant fed exclusively on a diet of Mopane leaves and Danish salted liquorice...


Hrumph... I was using linseed oil and the sound of tectonic plates moving.

Have you tried lowering the ambient air pressure in your house? If you lower the pressure by 25% then you allow the driving coils to move more freely with less air resistance and you get a brighter tone in the 200Hz to 5kHz range.

Forget about wires... those people are lost before it even leaves the recording medium!  If you aren't using at least 128-bit encoding, 96KHz sampling, 5-channel source media, don't waste money on anything over about $10,000.

sendtodave: The way the signal refraction works in Monster cables results in much less signal attenuation and "audio bleed."


While adding a pleasing gravy texture, and using quantum mechanical magic to keep gnomes out of the wires...

Weighing in at an impressive 40kg, the 3.4ft tall pair of speakers, available in white or black, are integrated with XA amplifier technology usually worth £17,000 alone.


Armed with 50 Watt horns (using recessed spherical waves to give as smooth a sound possible) and a 400 Watt bass woofer, the wiry innards also use digital processing accurate to one-millionth of a second, proving plenty of bang for a buyer's buck.

I prefer to submerge my entire setup in a salt water tank. That guarantees solid connections.
