    Had to allow myself a wry smile as i read whichic was awarded "Best Cable"..............The Chord Signature priced at £525.......................if you wonder why the wry smile, you havent read the "Shock Finding" thread.

    I wonder how much Chord Co's advertising budget is with HFN? ;)

    Well I'm going to stick up for Chord here, I use their cables and think they are very good at what they do. I also think the signatures are a good cable and when you realise how much other cable manufacturers charge for there (almost) top of the range - they present decent vfm as well.

    Griffo, it seems that you might have missed the point i was making, thats definitely the case if you havent read my thread called shock finding, on how i came across a beer money priced ic, and ultimately did a blind A/B test in a hifi shop, and the result was that the shop guys preffered the £4 ic over the £500 + Chord Signature.

    I too like Chord stuff, hence the ownership in the past of Odyssey speaker cable, Cobra, Silver Siren, and Chameleon ic's, so its not that i dont like them either.

    IHB, apologies I hadn't read your previous thread. I understand what you are getting at know.

    You go for a walk in the park one day and wheelchair ninjas, Nazis, and pots and pans robots show up to kill you. And dinosaurs show up to eat the remains. You\'ve seen the news...?

    At least they write about 2nd and 3rd place. About half way through and though it was good this month. Liked the DAB article, even though I dont listen to radio seriously.
