The occasion was changing out the left side of my synth rig -- replacing a Roland GAIA with two Waldorf Blofeld Keyboards, and swapping out the stand from an x-stand to a two-level K&M column stand -- and thus needing different cable lengths to run from the new setup to my submixer. Having read about how everyone seems to rave about Audiopile on this forum, I figured I'd give them a trial this time and see what the deal was.
The result: I'll soon be replacing all my other cables with Audiopile too. After using these, I can't imagine trusting anything else again. The difference in quality is obvious, top notch materials and components assembled perfectly.
Many thanks to this forum for talking about them every time someone wants a cable.
