Hi Morrow, Try that one on Bob Pease. I think he would understand what you're talking about because the rest of us just are not properly enlightened.

Here are some testimonials you left out... "The Morrow Audio SP3s (out of the box) sounded compressed, muted and lacking in both frequency extremes. The transient attacks on instruments were diminished and the overall tonality was thin. It's difficult to write this without making it sound like the SP3 cables sound bad without the break-in service. I wouldn't say they sounded "bad", it was just that I didn't have the patience to wait and see if they would sound better than the much more expensive cables I was using. After mailing in the cables for the break-in service, and receiving them back, the cables sounded much more full-bodied with good transient performance, and a very natural midrange and good response at the frequency extremes. The break in service provided a huge sonic improvement." Marc A. "I also recommend the break-in service. New interconnects go through a period of sounding worse before they break in and then they come into their own. Mike suggested the service and it was worth the expense!" Joey Caleyo Now, to all out there... Lets prove the foolishness of the original poster. You can try my cables for $39.95 by clicking the link below. I challenge you to order two pairs. One with the breakin service and one without. I will then leave it up to your ears...you will see! Warning...once you hear what my cables can do for your system, no matter how humble, you will want more. Here is the link: http://www.morrowaudio.com/signup_goldclub.html Mike Morrow, Morrow Audio

Don't worry about it Morrow. There are thousands of people every day scammed by the Nigerians across the pond to send money and give up their bank accounts so that they can become the rightful heirs to millions of dollars. At least you're offering something tangible for your scam. I remember when my father installed a box called the "Gonkulator" in the broadcast suite of a local radio station with 5 knobs, a couple of magnets (to add weight) and 6 feet of 12 pair cable that went into the back of the broadcast console and went NOWHERE....and yet, the on air talent swore that this was the magic device that made their voices sound fantastic. I guess what I have to ask is will this device improve the power to my toaster oven too? Or are the transient waves good for the heating elements....because frankly it sounds pretty bad nowadays...

Sorry. Love your enthusiasm but sorry for your thinking. Won't. cant. and ain't. Try a true double (that means two) blind test and you'll come up 50-50 picking "new" from "broken in" cables. Do you break in your fiber optics, too?

Doesn't anyone remember the wonderful "flux dumper" that Stereophile Mag endorsed? I have to run - I just threw a hundred feet of #12 OFC into the microwave to break it in. Something smells.

It amazes me to the ignorance of the original poster. Cable breakin is a proven fact. Perhaps he is listening to a Bose radio of a Fisher stereo where one could never hear the effects of cable breakin. The proof is in the listening, ascribed by thousands of people that bear witness that cable breakin is a proven occurrence. It is amazing that he left out the testimonials to the fact that are posted on our breakin service page!

Would anyone be interested in my DVD- and Blu-Ray rewinder? The bit domains in a disc eventually become skewed by being spun in only one direction during playback, which increases the amount of error correction alarmingly. My rewinder spins the disc backwards, but only after applying a gradual, and acceleration-limited ramp up to approximately 60,000 rpm. After only 12 days, your disc is completely re-aligned and ready to be played once more. The 20 HP rewind motor and associated gearing are no louder than a weed whacker, and more than adequate cooling is afforded by connecting a garden hose to the heat exchanger port. The entire unit is smaller than a Bridgeport milling machine. Plus, there's no special power requirement: the rewinder runs on 480v triple phase, found everywhere. Rewinding after every use is recommended, and for best results, the disc axis of rotation must be kept pointing at Polaris using the optional equatorial rewinder mount, that is shipped in its own 8 foot, road-ready trailer.

This would be truly funny if it was not so pathetic! What does matter with most wiring is keeping the desired signals in and the undesired signals out. So we do use low capacitance, low tribo-electric input cables, and number 14 or #16 speaker cables. The rest is a whole lot like "the emperor's new clothes", which is all found in the egoes of those needing to demonstrate hw much better than us they are. ON the other side, for a reasonable fee, I too can provide the breaking in service for new cables. All payments in cash, please.

It's important not to discourage the audio experts who have never had any sort of education except for their "ears". If reason prevailed, we'd never have such great stories to tell of the pitfalls of audio "engineering". Do you remember directional speaker wire? You had to connect one end to the amp, the other to the speakers. From turntable days: microcracks in the turntable mount produced ultrasonic energy that would be picked up by the cartridge, and damage your pre-amp. Or water-cooled speaker cables? Or special line cords and AC filters to block who-knows-what that might get through the amp's power supply... no, let's let these folk generate all the unfounded and outright silly claims they might like...
