I bought a few Audioquest fog lifters, to lift the speaker- and powercables a few inch from the ground. Just for the fun. And to protect cables from unwelcome noise and...it works! I mean, it’s easy to detect the differences: a bit more air, a bit more rhythm, a bit more detail, more dynamics, cleaner, more transparant, eveything is ligther and tigther. 

There is less flesh to the bones. It’s less ‘earthy’ sounding. Every instrument seems to have less substance and body. I don’t know yet if I like this effect on the long term, but it’s definately easy to notice. 

The lifters are very ligth. You can’t bend a K400 or other heavy cable on it; you have to follow the ‘rules of the cable’.

Well, it’s a funny spider tweak. I think my wife will be shocked, if she sees them.

I have not tried cable elevators, but I know that every time I go in the back of my cabinet and disconnect or move my cables, it takes several minutes for the cables to settle back in place before the sound quality returns to normal

I bought some and thought they made an improvement - couldn't be bothered to insert/remove them multiple times.  The ones I bought were inexpensive (now £17 for 6) as I thought presumed the idea was to get them off the floor with a small contact point on the cable.  Some are many 100's of GBP and I do not see how a very small contact point is going to be that impacted by material used.

The ones I bought - think they were cheaper a few years ago - are:

When looking for the Audioquest ones (£129 for 8) I found this interesting article:  https://positive-feedback.com/audio-discourse/bunking-cable-lifters/

I would think that elevating the cables for one channel and not the other would produce an imbalance that would be noticeable. An easy way to test.

I don’t know if my brain can differentiate that way.
