Ric - I love ya. My pair of ultimate attenuators, which I bought new from you, will never leave my possession. However, try as I might, I have never heard a difference lifting the speaker cables off the floor. Done it with different cables and generally some fine gear. I have had friends over and no one could hear a difference. In fact, it was this very subject that led me to post here a few weeks ago requesting that the people in larger areas where there are many AudioCircle members start some comparisons on subjects like this. That went nowhere. So you may be right, but I remain skeptical. But I am open to being wrong - won't be the first time.
