During my re-visit call to Sinan Ustunkal, I received a phone call from Cuneyt Borcbakan who was inviting me to witness an interesting speaker cable test. He lives within a five minutes driving distance from where we were. Would I miss such an event? Definitely not!
The two speaker cables in question were Cuneyt Borcbakan's own MIT MH 850 IVO Shotgun and Can Elgiz's previous cable: Purist Audio Dominus. Two top level cables of the same price ($$$!) range.
Together with Cuneyt and Nejat we had tested MIT MH 850 IVO Shotgun against many different cables and noticed that MIT was superior to all of them with a very clear margin. I had the impression that it was the reference speaker cable which was difficult (or impossible) to surpass.
Well I was wrong! Purist Audio Dominus excelled in many different areas:
The only area where MIT was superior was the stage width.
Life is full of surprises. Will Cuneyt keep them? We'll wait and see (and report).
