1. I'm interested in knowing the conclusions of James, Hugh, and others who have tried the cable. Does it still seem to sound different, and if so, in what conditions?
2. Im my own experience, this different "sound" can happen with cables at all price points. The bulk Mogami quad always sounds different to me, and I use this as line interconnects. It has a larger and more focussed lower end, more body, and a much smoother upper end. The source sounds bigger. The cost? Room ambience. It was (is) definitely different, but not necessarily better nor worse.
It was an "effect," as a couple of meters in the middle of everything else would make the same difference.
In spite of this, I didn't run out and replace my mic cables, nor the rest of my interconnects.I could have, since the cable is the same or only a little more than Belden, Canare, and a dozen others. I did find myself preferring the 8 or so lengths of the cable to the rest of the various line level connects I had.
More things moved in to the box, and now I haven't nearly as much use for a myriad of line level cables.
I chose to view the Mogami quad as a "colour," only because it was opposite of how most other cables sounded, not because it was not neutral.
So Hugh, James, and others, what's your current opinion of the cables, now that it's years later? Though there is no significant rejection of RF, were RF problems encountered? And did third party analysis turn up anything interesting on the "control" or Vovox cables?
