Cables matter in mastering why not at home?

by NOMBEDES on 12-30-2013 at 03:17 PM
From the Music Matters, Ltd web site.

"When Ron and I agreed that Kevin was the Engineer we wanted to do the transfers for our Music Matters Blue Note reissue program I began to think about the connectivity issue at Kevin's studio. As VP of product development at AudioQuest since 1983, the knowledge that cables make a difference is hardly new to me!

An inspection of the facility revealed adequate wiring (mostly from Canare I believe) but hardly the stuff of audiophile

Even the iMac desktop home computer, where size and weight are not critical, will require an external optical drive to access disk media. This design decision by Apple is based on the certainly that 99% of data, including music and video will soon be purchased and transmitted over the net and stored in the cloud. CDs and DVDs will join the
