I got some new cables indeed. And what a change! First let me remind you that I wasn't a "cable believer". Having tried many brands and types of cables, I never found big differences between them - given that they all belong to the same range of price/quality. This time now something changed. The cables arrived (a PH2 and a MA2) and I installed them right away. The next day I went on a trip not having heard the system with these new cables. I was away for three weeks. During that time I had my brother at my home playing music night and day (ahhh, the college years...).
When I arrived I finally got the chance to sit down and listen to some music. My immediate reaction was WOW! The sound was coming better than ever! More detailed and more solid. The listening experience was now more palpable, more vivid.
I asked my brother - a music addict and a head banger that doesn't know anything about audio gear - about what he experienced and he told me: "In the beginning it wasn't like this. The sound was a bit strange, not like usual. I thought it was from the records, they sounded thin. But playing the same tracks over and over again, I noticed after a few days that the music was sounding better, there was improvement day after day. ". And then I had the final assessment, my wife. She is just a casual listener, never cared for music and only listens when I'm playing something in the living room. (She is also a big opposer to money spent in audio stuff). She came into the room and I was playing a very familiar record. She immediately complained: "What have you bought this time? Must be something expensive for the music to sound this good!" I had tears in my eyes :) (well, not literally). Then she continued "Is it a New amplifier? Not the speakers, I can see they're the same." - No, nothing like that. But do you notice a difference? - I asked. - Yes, even my hard ears can feel the difference. It's like we have the singer in our room!
Before I told her the truth I just played a couple of more familiar songs and she was really shocked with the improvement. And kept asking me what have I done!
Finally I did something to kill the mystery: swapped to the old cables and played the same records. We couldn't believe that just a piece of wire could make such an impact! Sound changes completely. Now with the complete set of Morrow cables (power, phono, interconnects and speaker cables) we gained clarity and presence. Music is now more juicy, more "there in the room". Amazing!
My wife is now more interested in listening with me. And happy that this improvement didn't cost a fortune! :)
That's it. From skeptic to believer! Your cables make a difference. Thanks for asking. And don't stop developing. All the best! Regards, Miguel
