I'm new here (2nd post) and don't understand the issue. I bought a pair of these about three months ago and listened to a track I was intimately familiar with, The Who's Baba O'Riley. It sounded like garbage. So I left my system on for well over a month playing a loop of music. After the suggested burn in time, actually 184 hours of burn-in, I immediately played Baba O'Riley again and the track immediately opened up, like a veil was lifted. The coherence of these cables are stunning. Bass was booming, when before it was muddy and shallow. I even heard a violin I didn't even know was on the track! Did ANY of you know there is a violin on this track! Well get these cables and hear it again, for the first time.
