I get a charge out of the cable booths, and everyone states in their setup what cables were used to connect their gear.
I'm going to purchase some booth space, set up my gear, and state it connected with coat hangers. Also, i'll demonstrate a CD transport ($6,500.00), hand crank driven, not belt.
Actually, I better understand why the headphone guys behave as they do. The nature of that format removes so many of the variables that small differences are easier to hear. The speaker/cable/amp/pre nuts are the ones I can't get my head around.
