    Very helpful information, Ted,

    Once I have the speakers delivered, it will take a bit of time to have everything arranged and settled, and I plan to try these speaker cables to see if the same magic will happen in my system.

    I will have a resolving source setup, if this speaker cable can help reveal more, I will be extremely happy.

    Regards,
    Kevin

    Kevin,

    What speaker cables will you be using to break-in the RAAL Towers?

    Ted,

    I will start with an old pair of MIT MH-750, once burn-in is completed, I will compare with another old pair of HGA Silver to see which one work better.

    No, not yet, still waiting for the delivery.

    My guess is early Oct.

    Sure looks that way, Ted,

    Meanwhile, it is giving me time to get items ready to test the setups, including some DIY parts, so it will be a very busy October for me.

    That's great, Kevin...Enjoy the Journey and keep us informed!

    Well, the SP4's speaker cables sound sooo great, was curious about what their interconnects could do for me. Mike stated yesterday morning that they’ll Further Enhance the SP4 Soundstage Attributes in addition to the same degree of soundstage improvements I hear with the SP4's…very hard to imagine it getting any Better!?!

    With their 60-day return policy, figured I have nothing to loose...Ordered their MA4's and Sub4 interconnects, along with their in-house cable break-in 10-day services. There is a 3 week delay in build time, thus should see these arriving at the end of October! Before Thanksgiving, I'll report back my findings of "Audio Fact or Sales Fiction"!!!

    I speculate the interconnects will also help, but not sure to what degree, so I will be looking for your review by late November to see how you like them.

    As for my journey, well, it got started again last night. I received an email from Dina that they will be getting the finished cabinets in 3-4 weeks, so looks like I should get the speakers around mid to late October.

    I'm now thinking about upgrading my speaker cables.
    Would a bare wire connection to the speaker be preferable to spades or banana plugs since it would be 1 interface rather than 2? Convenience is not a factor since I never change out my speakers. I would still use banana plugs on my amp since the convenience there is is needed.
