Is it just us here in the editorial that likes the sound of RCA terminated cables better? Please don’t come with the technical reason why XLR are superior; we’re talking purely about how the sound. We recognise that fully balanced amps and cd players XLR are the way to go. However in our experience RCA cables sounds more musical pure and simple and have a more solid soundstage. Anyone hearing the same as us?
