Stereophile Slip
« on: 12 Mar 2019, 02:02 pm »
Hi,
     I hate to be a bubble burster but read the new April Stereophile on page 176. Even though the new editor said on another forum that 2 pages were missing from an article by Herb Reichert, a printers mistake?, the fact is Nelson Pass uses Radio Shack wire for his speaker cables. They were recommended in Stereophile's recommended list over 20 years ago and still work fine for me......sincerely...Mark Korda

Here is an interesting test comparison between various budget speaker cables.  The RadioShack 12 gauge wire held its own.

It was interesting reading about the variation in resistance in these cheaper cables.  Not really relatable to radio shack wire holding it's own against Stereophile's recommended components, but an interesting test nonetheless.

  For the money a VG cable. A bit bright overall however open and transparent. Not bad at all. Pass is not the only Manf to use RS. More than you think.
