Post Subject: Well, it is what it is...Posted by Romy the Cat on: 11/5/2018
I have absolutely no idea what you people are pissed about
the new MIT’s ACC 268 cables. You need to separate in your heads two separate things.
The MIT new cable as a product and the MIT new cable as a concept.
The new MIT cable as a product is of cause is ridicules. Here
is the industry idiots like Robert Harley making this leaving. There are plenty
of people with plenty of money out there and I see absolutely nothing wrong if
they by cable, play them with their playback and be happy. Howe much it cost
and hos they sound is kind irrelevant to me, it is irrelevant to them, it is irrelevant
to MIT and it is irrelevant to Mr. Harley. The industry pimps are not able to understand
audio as abstract or a philosophical concepts and they can operate only by the products.
Trust me. I am very familiar with a highest echelon of the industry participants:
they are product-centric dead-weight. In the very same way the company like MIT
do not produce audio for listening but they furnish products for dead-weights,
or as one of the VERY high flying industry manufactures told me: “I build product
mostly for bottom eaters” and he was absolutely correct.
Nevertheless, if you remove from the new MIT’s ACC 268
cables the definition of “product” then what MIT did is very sensible, absolutely
not necessary in my view but sensible. You need to understand that MIT made
name by associating with amplifier designer houses that build kind of shitty SS
electronics. The crappy ported speakers that dominate industry for the last 50
years require a lot of dumping top amplification and the “best” SS amp have
near nill output impedance and not able to drive any capacitance of anything else.
Here is where MIT come with amplifier-external impedance and capacitance correction.
Did you even wonder why any dealer who sells Spectral amps for instance invariably
is pushing MIT cables? Anyhow, from the perspective of MIT cable philosophy,
where problems with amplification need to be corrected externally what MIT did
is very sensible.
There are many other developments in the same direction:
active-biased cables from I believe Nordost, the self-correcting cables from
POD and many other interesting solutions. As a solutions the concepts I do welcome
what the makers they. As a products… I do not particularly care and the efforts
of the morons who is trying to sell it makes no dent in my awareness.
Some years back I was having a conversation with a new audio
whanau-be-dealer guy who is nowadays is a huge name audio sales. He was expressing
his idiotic view about audio and I stumbled his with a request. I asked him when
he talks to me drop words: price, cost, sale and product from his vocabulary…
The poor man was not able to talk to me anymore…
