Peter, Paul:

I tried the new set up, and I was STUNNED! This is like it was going from Mach II to Mach III.  Absolutely mesmerizing.  The realism is unbelievable.  I am to shocked to even try to dissect what's going on.  Impossible to believe that a jumper change, and Q settings can do this.

I have to listen to a lot more music.  Initial impressions are that the sound is completely addictive.  Unbelievable clarity, resolution, separation, and coherence.  And really "alive", the opposite of clinical.

More listening ahead this weekend.

I can only agree with what has been said above. A detailed, yet relaxed, “real” sound and also a more natural and integrated sound stage. Indeed, a more “right” sound.

The result is that bedtime has shifted considerably because of “yet another album”.

I am curious about a physical explanation for this phenomenon.

Thanks Peter!

Stanley

Dear Peter and friends,

I just wanted to add a little bit more about this configuration: I do find myself tapping along the rhythm of the music more often, in other words, I am enjoying more the naturalness of the musical instruments than I did before. Also I want to point out the coherence of the piano musical notes. Understanding the left hand vs right hand is more evident. Also, the dynamics. The right energy is granted for each drums stroke, and the right steady stage with magic quality crystal sound.
Happy listening!

Hey Roberto !

I am happy to say that I still use your config, and that I probably can't get rid of it ever. It is exactly as you say : you can now literally see people's moods and intentions and how all play together.

Your config is so different from the others, that it is amazing that it can work out in the first place. Everybody should thank you deeply for finding this !

Hug,
Peter

Thanks Peter,
I also must add that this is in my system, and perhaps might not work in yours.  The bass is not as prominent as it was with the B:W-Y, but has many good things like a well balanced frequency response from top to bottom, and has wider stage, with a truly sense of 3D. The voices are projected to the air, with more space. The harmonic texture of the voices and musical instruments are right. The dynamics are more precise, taking in care of what is happening with the song. I have more communication with the musician(s).  Thanks for this wonderful cable.

Happy listening!
