It’s been quite awhile since I’ve posted, but I’ve managed to change out the cables that I previously had, which were quite unequal length. I don’t think I’ve mentioned this, but sometimes, I think I’m a bit paranoid because I’d think that the imaging isn’t in the middle and I want to blame part of it to the unequal length of the speaker cables. Since then, I’ve managed to procure myself some speaker cables that are close to equal length, and are of a different brand, so I’ll be taking a bit of time to discover the differences in characteristics on the sound vs the cables. Size-wise they are still 16 gauge but these are with more fine cooper wires. They are bare speakers wires so I’ve moved the connectors I’ve used for my previous cables to these ones.
So far however, I’m quite relieved that for now, I’ve discovered that having close to equal length cables can affect a bit of the imaging especially in stereo, as the imaging is now way more in the middle after the change. These cables, were something that my dad also had in a box somewhere full of some other cables as well, and quite surprisingly they are made by Monster, the brand that is responsible for making the power conditioner my dad uses for his system with the NHT Evolution T6, and as some of you may know, they make headphones as well, with some well-known ones being the Beats Headphones, which I personally think are over-priced. Especially the first-generation models. Nevertheless, they pretty good audio products, if they didn’t spend much of it on advertisements.
Also, I’m in the process of proof-reading my review for the Music Hall DAC15.2 and I’ve heard back to my brother who’s reviewing the Sony WH-1000X M2 wireless bluetooth noise-cancelling headphones, as he is also proof-reading his review, as well as getting some feedback from me. So expect those to be done real soon! Until then, I’ll be kicking back and enjoying at least how center the imaging is.
