So in moving things around I needed about 50 foot cables from my dac preamp to cross over control box and 25 feet to amps from there. As the amps are right behind each speaker tower
So I bought and average set of rca interconnects.
After I hooked it up my sound for bad
Clear and clean but dull to say the least
This drove me crazy as to why and was I even hearing what I thought . So moved the stuff back just to see and all the greatness came back.
Now I was confused even more than before as I had the proof I was not crazy. How much of what we do or think we hear may or may not be real ? I always wonder of what I think I hear is so and some times have a bit of regret . After all although I am a lisc electrical contractor and electrical engineer it can help but mostly makes me an agnostic of many aspects of this hobby we dwell in.
So what I did is email someone who I can truly count on for an honest answer
My answer was surprising and good at the same time.
It seems SE cannot go the distance that bal can. Now I know most here may know this and even though I am a life long audio head dude this I did not know.
It seems if you go beyond 6 feet or so it does not matter how much you spend. So I bought what I needed and adaptors simple ones to convert SE to BAL and back. The music was back maybe 90 percent. The rest can be had with better grade SE to bal conversion interconnects. I just thought I would share this to help
Others like me who love the magic of great mauic but honestly do not always know how to achieve it. . My next step is getting my cross over modded to fully balanced
It's being mailed to Colorado tomorrow
Over all it's comming together more each time I play
