I don't notice any change in sound but I like being able to be sure all cables are separated from one another.
Which ones does he use? Do you use them? If Bruce B uses, you DEFINITELY KNOW they work!If Bernie Grundman uses them, you KNOW they work!
Nice work on those cable supports!
How do you center precisely the vertical piece on the square base?
(Yes, this is a serious question. Other than eyeballing it, I literally would not know the woodworker's standard methodology for centering precisely the rectangular-ended vertical piece on the exact center of the square base. This also suggests why I am much better with a soldering iron than with a hammer.)
And if you can't hear any difference with them with that system and room of yours, you know darn well that cable risers do nothing at all for sound. They're just for looks, convenience for cleaning and organization of the cables. Plain and simple.
Curious, what are those speaker cables you're running to your CLX's? I'm thinking of going with a slightly smaller gauge cable for my SL3's. Many thanks in advance and a spectacular system you have there!
Glad it all worked out for you and that you are enjoying it.Interesting...what I can say is that good isolation has proven well worth it and lowered the noise floor to a level where with both the CJ GAT 2 preamp and now the Robert Koda K15EX (8db only of gain)...we can listen at the very lowest notch on the volume and hear all the details. We never got to this until after all of the isolation went into place, one piece of equipment at a time. The primary focus was always to ensure that as we placed each piece into its own isolation solution...the 'voice' of the component was maintained with only density of tone, clarity of detail being improved.
It took about 18 months to do it, 1 piece at a time and it's been stable ever since.
My partner's Mom lives in KS and powerline insulators can be found cheep there, couple of dollars a piece. I use the ones she has brought back for me in my system and to me it does seem to reduce the noise floor a bit. They look better than the cables all over the place as well!To set the record straight, I have never heard a difference in these products. I would use them only because my anal retentive factor is off the charts. In fact, I am a BlueJeans Cable guy.
But what I found fascinating is this quote by Jonathan Valin, not that he liked them (not a surprise) but rather that he considered himself a "skeptic", he who happens to be the President of the Speaker of the Nanosecond Club: "The damn things do lower noise, increase dynamics, remove haze, and open up the top octaves. Once you listen to their effects, even a skeptic like me has to admit that it is hard to take them back out of the system. Music sounds more like music with the Cable Elevators in place. I recommend them strongly, especially given their price!"
