    I have heard from a friend's aunt's pet budgie that a hifi manufacturer isselling 10k cd players that performs better withan aftermarket mains cable!

    Now, I am NOT going to name names as I have not heard this cd player but the source of the story seems believable to me.

    The question is:

    Aren't you just fed up with the quality of standard mains cables that come with most hifi equipment costing thousands of quid?!

    I won't name names, esp. as this cdp could be entirely fictional. ;)

    well as you seem to imagine yourself to have some sort of privilaged position in the world of hifi, and enjoy lording it over us mear audio mortals I wouldn't dream of enquiring after the identity of the mystery cd player ;)

    its not a modified Marantz SA-11 from a modifier that nobody on the forum is allowed to hear about, but Marantz Europe think are great?

    Yes, I love the ''I know something you don't know (even if it isn't true)'' forum posts, so I decided to post my own thread. Aren't forums great for this?

    Okay, here is a clue to the identity of this entirely fictional player that performs better with an entirely fictional mains cable, accroding to an entirely fictional English speaking budgie: click here.

    The answer is that it's not a Karan cdp, cos Karan works best with its own dedicated standard cable.

    What did I win?

    Damn I thought you were supposed to buy a £100 cd player then spend £10k on the cable


    uzzy recommends an ear wash as being the cheapest upgrade many can make in improving audio reproduction.
