Im not sure if the cables I use(MIT) can be considered as just a simple cables..I am a big fan of Tellurium Q but when I use the MIT it's just a different story. Some will say expectation bias but I don't think so..the MIT's (AVtMA's/ Matrix 12 xlr) they have a box with passive resistors,inductors,capasitors.

I'm not surprised that they sound different. It sounds like they are effectively filters and that's not a good thing.

I have just clicked the 50% off advert at the top of this page and it was for pollen filters....do these improve cables...

Regarding the write up on their website, I can assure you 100% that it is total nonsense, and designed purely to con those that have no electrical knowledge. (This unfortunately covers a large part of the population)

If the cable has reactive components built into it, then it can be no surprise that it sounds different. Unfortunately it sounds different because it has modified the frequency response of the original signal, this is bad.

Standard OFC cable of suitable thickness will allow a full frequency audio signal to pass entirely transparently. All the marketing in the world will not change this, or better it in terms of simplicicty and ability to do the job and no amount of wishful thinking is going to change these facts either.

About two years ago the

About two years ago the dealer offered me a home dem with TQ Blacks and I declined the offer. Afraid still not convinced that cables have a dramatic effect, except for a possible placebo overtone.

I'm a big believer in mind over matter: If you want to hear/feel a difference you will. I'm not terrible susceptible when it comes to certain aspects of hi-fi.

I even took the risk  pulling out and in s/c TQ is very good  but MIT's just gives more of what TQ can offer..tq black seems lean and but clean and thin.. MIT's just right IMO . Sax just play as it should with some edges.
