Anticables 4.2flex > PureAudioProject
Yes you are right - the 4.2 versions are solid copper. I couldn't double check that yesterday as their site was not functioning well enough to see. The solid copper wires will of course also require break in. I do own 5 of the Anticables level 3 p...

If the wires are "AceLectrum which is an alloy of silver and gold then they will have a break-in period. My XLR interconnects took about 50 hours to start behaving. That wire becomes a very good performer over time.  
Can a poorly connected XLR connection cause a reduced(less loud) signal?
I think I have experienced this issue before. XLR's sometimes do not have a very robust grip. On suspect connections I have wrapped the XLR's with tape with extra length attached to top of amp to act a sort of "hoist" that pulls the connector upwa... 
Guess who has new speakers in their lab?
Jay's channel is 75% drumroll.

Marching In Step My personal view concerning audiophilia is that all the components must march in step or else the war will not be won.

My new review for The Absolute Sound comparing AGD GAN amps with BHK300’s
A question for any AGD Audion owners hanging around - have any of you had experience with the earlier iterations of the output stage "tubes?" I am curious about how they sounded compared to the current "mk3's."

Miroslav Tadic and Yvette Holzwarth - "Luka" The virtuosity of the "Luka" album has become one of my favorites for exercising the GanFets and showing what they can do. They do stringed instruments very well indeed. Quobuz has it.

Audio Analyst Review of Gran Vivace  
People complain about lack of bass, not enough mid range. Solution?
Lately I have been wiring my Cornwall 4's with 10 gauge "western electric" cloth covered cable to the lower speaker taps and and then using jumpers to the allegedly "treble" taps on the Cornwalls with 16 gauge of the same vintage wire. Technically... 
Could Class D really be that good?
Further miniaturization of everything everywhere is inevitable.

My new review for The Absolute Sound comparing AGD GAN amps with BHK300’s
What I have found with the Audions is that their sound can be modified quite starkly by various power cables and interconnects - moreso than any other component I have encountered.
