Does anyone know if Chord's Carnival Silver Plus cable is directional?
I recently bought a 2nd pair of matching cables to bi-amp from my receiver, and had never given it any thought before. But I notice that the pair I bought 2nd hand have what appears to be factory fitted shrink tubing around each set at one end, with the chord branding and arrows, which i currently have pointing in the direction away from the speaker and towards the amp.
Also i noticed on the other speaker, the cables used for HF and LF have the branded writing in opposite directions (although there's no arrows on the cables themselves).
It's not that I'm disappointed with the sound I get, but I know these RS6's have got more to give. how much extra may depend on using a dedicated cdp and stereo amp instead of an AV amp and universal disc player, although I believe both Marantz components are very musical. I'm always striving to get better 2 channel for music.
l should just try switching the cables to face the same way, but it really is going to be a massive task to reverse them now and I'll never be able to get the wiring as tidy again! (They're shielded & diverted from mains etc).
So if anyone could help me, I'd be really appreciative of the advice first before embarking on an absolute ball-aching task!
