GUEST,Ray Tech: Speakers and speaker wire (43) RE: Tech: Speakers and speaker wire 07 Dec 19

There are also those who think they need to pay megga-bucks for sheilded interconnecting leads between hi-fi separates. .... not to mention those people who have convinced themselves that the big round vinyl disks sound better than CDs. The whole subject is nothing but marketing hype.

Such hype also extends to the musicians themselves. Round about the time that digital reverb/delay units were replacing reverb plates and high quality tape based delays in the studio, Roland brought out their “Space Echo” unit and made reasonable quality reverb and delay available to the masses. What everyone was striving for was a clean signal with minimum wow and flutter in the echo. The problem was later solved by digital units making the Space Echo largely obsolete. Today, not only has the Space Echo come back into fashion, you can buy a digital (pedal) version which claims to reproduce the muddy signal plus wow and flutter, which everyone originally sought to get rid of, as a positive feature.
