There's a lot of misinformation out there in terms of speaker cables and interconnects. Sometimes there are wild claims of dramatic transformations in performance and, on the other side, claims that they make no difference whatsoever.
Like many things, the truth lies somewhere in between. Upgrading your leads can be a great way to bring a new lease of life to an ageing system, or to simply ensure you're getting the absolute best out of a new one. Don't forget, it's not just your cables; the rack or stand that your system and speakers are placed on, and even your mains extension lead, all have a bearing on the final sound quality.
Other than accessories, the biggest impact on performance is the room your system is in. If you have lots of hard surfaces, high ceilings and square walls, it's likely to sound shrill and imprecise. The addition of soft furnishings, such as rugs and heavy curtains, can absorb reflected sound so what you hear is cleaner and more distinct.
If you want to know more about how to make your system shine, give your local store a call or pop down for a chat. Remember, we can take care of installation too.
