    I'm enjoying listening too music to much to even consider continuing to discuss this issue.

    That's not what is important. What is important is the electrical signal from your ear to your brain is the same length on both sides

    True, but how does that apply to cable length?

    Re: With speaker cables, how long is too long?

    My speaker cables are about 23feet. Since I use a integrated amp there is not really any way to use short speaker cables. The only way would be to trade in my integrated amp for separates. But separates are so expensive. Personally I would almost always buy an integrated amp. Maybe above 15/20k€ separates become interesting.
    Integrated amp: Symphonic Line La Music Turntable: SAC Girati Grande. Tonearm: Dynavector 507mkII Cartridge: Dynavector Te Kaitora Rua Streamer: Auralic Aries LE DAC: Schiit Gungnir Multibit Phono amp: RCM Sensor Prelude Power Distributor: Anzus Mains D8 Speakers: Raidho X-3 Speaker Cables: AudioQuest Rocket 88 Interlinks Ansuz X Digital Interlinks Anzus Digitals A USB Phono interlink: Cammino Serie 1.0 - PH 1.0s Power cables: Anzus Mains Ceramic, Anuzus Mains A, NBS dragon fly, Zu Bok Audio Rack: Solid Steel H6
