Before this adventure with Morrow Audio, I had never heard speaker cables make such a difference. ICs, yes; PCs, yes; but not speaker cables. Your work, Mike, makes speaker cables vital, absolutely vital to the experience of listening to recorded music.
These SP4s are very detailed and revelatory, very realistic in presentation, and very, very musical. The placement of voices and instrumentation is "visually" very accurate, but not sharp and intrusive and distracting. The space around the voices and instruments is wonderful. Nice work!
I am just stunned... I've been working on my student's written work all day, listening to whatever the computer queues up in its playback through the DAC. So often this morning and early afternoon, I've heard jaw-dropping detail and musicality in a remarkable balance.
Just a few moments ago, I heard the palm on the drumhead... never heard that before in that particular bit of music. Literally, the musical sound-texture of a human hand on the drumhead leather... I've heard that detail before, but not to the palpable complexity of texture and detail, the contribution these make to the musical experience that the SP4s bring.
Oh well, you must get tired of these rants and ravings from others and me about these cables. I bet sometimes you want to make a cable that shuts us up, renders us mute (as Medusa turned warriors to stone) (as Odysseus must have been, listening to the Sirens... no more banal blabbing, just all ear), giving you some space to do your work!
Well, it's just amazing to listen to this system, which I know inside and out, over all kinds of music and types of instrumentation, some quite exotic by western standards, and to be surprised and literally awed.
Today I heard a vocalist, Hamza el Din, in the audio space created by the SP4s & MA4's. This came in a way I've never heard him before.
Literally, my experience was as if he were in my listening room singing and playing... the sense of voice and space, a human presence, Hamza el Din! Sadly, he has passed away. My experience this afternoon was as if he returned to sing and play in my listening room. Now this, especially while I was working, I have never, ever experienced in audio. It was very much like a front row experience at a small, intimate concert. Such things are just very, very unusual in my world.
