So you spent loads on your kit, whats your oppinion of cable synergy? I spent a while listening to different cabling after i'd decided on my equipment. The salesman was top notch and didn't BS me. We listened to different cable and the difference was suprising. There was a definite synergy between chord Innterconnects and their speaker cabling. Unfortunatly i didn't get to try the Cyrus IC with the speaker cable as they didnt have any cyrus spk cable in stock However i had choosen some Chord Rumour speaker cable and Chord Chamleon Silver Plus interconnects. They really struck a balance, they affected tonal balance and seperation. I definatly think that after trying different combinations, cable synergy isn't some placebo affect. The difference isn't massive, cyrus kit still sounds great but it is possible to tell if you take time to test. After hearing the salesmen say this term, when i got my kit home i googled cable synergy and came up with this link which pretty much completes the puzzle. I've just checked the name of the interconnects and to my amazement they matched up with the recommendations on Chords web site. Pretty much confirming that the combination i heard is the exact recommended combination by chord themselves. Have you had similar experiences?
