A lot of musicians and audio guys like MK / Lyngdorf combo - it's about as good as you can get before a truly active system like Steinway Lyngdorf for example. Everyone from Dolby engineers to average forum users have had quite the surprise during demos because unfortunately bad hi end systems outweigh good ones by quite a stretch.upgraded my fuses in the wall....
It is so interesting that i some ways you and i are very close in gear and previous jobs . I have been working in music production and sound design for film for 25 years, so i know where you are coming from on cables . ill guess there is something about the lyngdorf feature set, as well as the M&K stuff that resonates and feel safe and trustworthy to us?
BTW I use long SCP fibre HDMI cables. They are smarter than the RUIPRO that might be basicly the same, but without the ability to take the hdmi plug apart for easy pulling.
I understand that my system, altho very good is limited by real world problems and no fuse or cable or interpretive dance can help that - have you ever been in a studio where an engineer has ever said:
"hmm hang on, that's sounding a little harsh, let me change the fuse here and if that doesn't work we'll use the braided XLR on the mic"
