Default The "small guys" - cable manufacturers...

why isnt there more talk on here about guys such as Triode Wire Labs, Morrow, Audio Sensibility etc? Dont you guys think that these offer much better value than the "big" guys?

Smaller brands = smaller recognition

Goes with the territory.

Cool cables, at a fantastic price. I wonder how they compare to some of the higher end brands. Anyone done some comparison testing with these?

Morrow looks nice but they have little information on the site about why the cables are good.

Shouldn't your ears tell you why they are good?

When your buying an expensive cable sight unseen, it would be nice to know something about what makes the a quality cable. That should be confirmed by your ears.
