    My ode to Cables

    I like my cables; this I can not deny. They helped the sound of my system; this too is no lie. Try as you may to dismay, I will not bite. For I like my cables with all my might! So unto you disbelievers I say good night and keep up the futile fight; who knows, you may be right!
    Or Not!
    Have a great day!

    Ive never seen as many fables
    As those that are applied to cables.

    Some see the differences as day and night.
    And others say it's very slight.

    And then some say there's none at all.
    Have you ever seen such gall?

    There once was a man named Bturk667
    Whose gulibility is manna from heaven (for cable companies)
    His faith is misplaced
    Cables have no saving grace
    His claims and couplets are less than proven

    Of all the opinions on sound
    This is what I have found
    Use your ears, not your brain
    Although others disdain
    that you've kept your feet on the ground.
    How can you ignore what you hear
    base your judgement on fear
    of opinions of internet clowns?

    Well, that would prevent me from reading your clueless posts, but I suspect there are easier ways to go about it. It also doesn't keep you from inflicting yourself on others, so think I'll pass.

    How do you ask your brain to shut down, not interfer, interpret the signals from you ears? You may have discovered soemthing here. Publish it.

    If there is one thing in audio that is stable
    It is, a persons views on cable
    Why we discuss it all the time
    Is a mystery to me, in rhym
    So decide for yourself what you believe
    This fretted brain to relieve
    Using your science or using your ear
    you'll get no joy from this I fear
    Not one convert will you get
    On this poor subject our minds are set....

    Proof is in the eyes of the beholder, not in the scolder! So if you do not believe, for you I will grieve! For I listen with my ears, and I will not heed your jeers. Do to your system what you must, but my ears I will always trust!

    Have a great weekend!

    Would that be single or double? How about triple?

    For your own personal proof, do what you must,
    but to convince others, how will they trust
    your biased and flawed observations?
    Your claims are merely speculation.

    TGIF have a good one!

    Any would be better than sighted, but you'll have to ask Billl, he said it. Good luck with that

    TO MY OWN SYSTEM they are a plus! To yours they might be a bust. So I say trust not in me, let your ears guide thee!

    If that's the case, what's the point of sharing
    when your experiences are just a red herring?
    Dbt is the only way to determine
    whether you are hearing or just perceivin'

    ...that was a tough one

    Not bad!

    I dare to share because I care! If my experiences are a red herring then who am I scarring? You say dbt is the only way. I see it as a way for you and others to simply say nay! Dbt is the true red herring, there is no need for that kind of comparing! When I listen to music I do so with my ears; If I had to do it with my mind I would be in tears! Believe in cables or not, I'm still glad I gave them a shot! After all it is my money, so have a good weekend, and I hope it's sunny!

    I'm glad you love your high priced wire
    But this is a debate of which I tire
    Do they make a diff or do they not?
    Are yours much better than what I got?

    It would be compelling if Audioquest
    or Kimber did a double blind test
    but they never shall, don't you see
    for if they did, you'd think like me.

    I do agree that listening is best
    so why not put it to the test?
    Close thine eyes, with ears do listen
    what fun is a contest of pissin'?

    Rid thyself of this red herring
    then at thyself thy will be swearing!
    A test can be done with simple ease,
    you'll trade those cables for new LP's!

    Try and try as you may to sway, I will keep my Blue Heaven's, if that's o.k?
    To prove me wrong all you have to do is come along.
    You bring your cables, and I'll bring mine, and we'll see whose cables truely are devine.
    So next time your in Chi-Town, come on down!
    My door will be open, so here is to hopin' !

    Just close your eyes, if you dare
    I promise that I'll be most fair
    I'll swap one in, I'll swap one out
    and you'll know what we harp about!

    The sound won't change, I dare to say
    But yes, keep your Nordost, it's ok
    But me? You'll find this rather funny
    I'd sell the Nordost and pocket the money!

    Man, I was just IN Chicago today! Just got back a few hours ago - business trip. But screw the cables - I wanna hear that vinyl rig you have!

    Parts is parts and
    Wire is wire
    Spending money on cables though is what some people desire
    They say it can improve systems for both you and me
    But I think some just suffer from cable envy !

    what the...whats with the rhyme?
    liking your wires is no crime.
    Without them, you cant make sound
    so you need them pound for pound.

    I don't have good wires, and maybe I'm cheap,
    but the real fact is I dont have money to make that leap.
    If it's makes you happy then that's cool,
    because if it doesnt, spend more time at the pool.

    *the above may not make sense, but I tried my best...*
