A review of the cable http://www.whathifi.com/Review/Chord-Company-SuperScreen/ for those who are interested. Curiously they value it at £65 in the review!

Thanks for the heads up. Great cable BTW.

Yep of all the miles of dirt cheap cable between the substation and your house and from your consumer unit to the socket that last meter makes all the difference.

I've fitted one of these to my oven as well and it makes the food taste nicer.

:-D

Like I said, this deal's not for everyone. You're either interested or not. This is for those who are.

WhatHiFiSoundandVision say:

The SuperScreen uses the same dual foil shields that you’ll find on the company’s Award-winning Carnival SilverScreen speaker cable.

Hook it up to your hi-fi and the lead gives your system superior solidity. The £30 premium over the Clearer Audio Copper-line Alpha gets you a slightly more mature and refined sound.

There’s a greater purity to audio and the cable focuses more on the nuances of music.

This transfers to image quality too with a vibrant and clean picture. [SIZE="4"]If you have system components costing £500-£1000, this is the cable for you. [/SIZE]

Well qualified to comment. :roll:

I've got some very expensive hi-fi components (some costing over £1000) but they all came with mains leads.

I've got a gas oven though - how can I improve my cooking?

They are clearly taking the ****. They sell a lot of advertising space for this type of product.

I bet scientifically you couldn't show any difference, nor could you tell the difference in a blind trial. The only difference is the power of suggestion and the fact that people get into buying their hifi, they buy all the major components and want to keep buying, because somehow it still doesn't sound as amazingly life changing as they've convinced themselves it should.

Have you actually done a listening comparison between this type of lead and an ordinary one?
I suppose you also believe that all speaker cables are equal too.
Oh, and of course, all HDMI leads are the same too aren't they?

good quality cable im sure, and im sure itll deliver electric in a nice clean manner due to supposed quality materials but even i cant see how this can improve the sound....and i have an expensive av/hifi system

No you've got me there, but I've read ABX tests with large groups of audiophiles in the past.

There's probably a difference between 10p metre bell wire and £1 a metre OFC cable. Beyond that you're rapidly on a curve to making no difference. I've got some £1000 floorstanders I changed a faulty driver on, the cable used inside the speaker is only cheap copper cable. The cable used in pro recording studios is only cheap copper cable. Mags like What HiFi have create a market for selling snake oil.

Oh, and of course, all HDMI leads are the same too aren't they?

At short lengths it makes no difference, at long lengths higher quality is needed to stop 'sparklies'.

It's a digital connection, it either works properly or it doesn't.

You can go into PC World and buy gold plated printer cables, would you expect better quality prints?

I bought a "special" mains cable years ago.
Cost me about £20.
It did help the system sound better, but maybe fitting a mains filter would have he same effect?
#16
My favourite What Hifi review:

http://www.whathifi.com/Review/van-den-Hul-Ultimate/

£300 for an HDMI cable:shock:

Pretty much all Hifi tweaks have a positive or negative placebo effect. It only really damages these punters' wallets so if it makes them happy, who are we to argue?

However, I reserve the right to laugh at them and their stupidity:p

Stupidly cheap cable, wouldn't use it on my kettle. You need these to make any difference http://www.russandrews.com/product.asp?lookup=1®ion=UK¤cy=GBP&pf_id=1549&customer_id=PAA1982039610255WMFSPNDFSSUSXYVI (remember to change to the 2m version!)

Anyway, I have a £5,000 piece of hifi which came with a bog standard kettle lead. Do you really think they would ship this with a cable that made it sound crap, of course they wouldn't - any properly made cable will do the job so long as it can deliver the required current. I've tried numerous power cables over the years and have never kept any of them as none of them have hade the music sound any better. Still, it's only £20 or so for 6 mags and the cable so from that point of view it's still a reasonable buy.

Thanks - that's just convinced me NOT to subscribe to this magazine. Saved me the subscription fee. :thumbsup:

I believe James Randi still has $1,000,000 available to anyone who can successfully double blind test expensive speaker cables from cheap run of the mill cables. I remember some company with extortionatley priced cables was going to take the challenge but pulled out .... says it all I guess.
