I replaced all my binding posts with Pomona 3707 ($8.60/ea x 8, Mouser, etc.) gold plated copper posts.
Do you mean 3770?dave
The wireworld oasis 6 is the lowest cost IC w/ their "silver tube" plug that is silver clad OFC contacts with no brass or nickel. It's a patented plug they make which always seemed to me a quality connector.Guess if the option is $50+ just for similar quality plugs, then about $80 for a fully made 1M pair is not too bad after all.....
It's what is and what is not useless that we tend to have trouble with.
That looks like a good cable for the money for sure... I haven't tried it myself, but if the connectors are on par with the others I mentioned then that is a good deal on an IC cable. In this case, if you want to upgrade maybe they have a model with OCC copper instead of OFC copper wire.
The next model up, the Equinox 6, is all OCC, but retails for 50% more than the Oasis 6 . I tried the Equinox 6 for a while, but just found that the OCC veiled the sound too much, and the bass was not as tight. Don't know if that's a function of the geometry vs the material, but I'm finding in general that OCC tends to do that.
Trust me: No one ever changes their minds reading this stuff...
We have one vote for wire is wire from steve f.Funny how all the melodrama just gets repeated over and over.. like the person thinks they can convince anyone else.Trust me: No one ever changes their minds reading this stuff...
Elizabeth,I don't think all wire is wire. A signal can be screwed up by some cables on the market. Then the cable is acting like a high priced tone control. I don't care about anyone's religious wire thoughts. It's their money. Steve
How refreshing that industry luminaries such as Frank and Roger would speak the truth about the snake oil of cables. There are many others including Siegfried Linkwitz that feel the same. I remember a long time ago James Bongiorno used a few hundred foot roll of 16 GA zip for his speaker wire. He liked the smooth roll off of a one ohm speaker cable that sounded like the large output impedance of a good tube amp.
