    Yes, you should. I recommend the GIK Acoustics Alpha 4A panels for this. They work great and are very affordable.

My room is 20'x26' and treated with GIK products.
    The fact you have the WW Platinum 8 IC’s tells me you already appreciate a great cable. Ignore the non-believers. A great cable is equal to a component change and well worth it. Taken from another perspective, I have customers who believe cables are the most important component in a system (excluding the room/treatments of course). More important than an amp say. I’m not quite there myself, but do appreciate how important cables are to overall synergy and bringing the absolute best out of the rest of the system.

    I don't get into name calling; therefore regardless of individual preferences I don't call anyone an audiofool. People spend their money on whatever they like and I don't determine value, what's good or bad for anyone but myself. I'm here to share my experiences, not to judge.

    my response, while directed with respect to your quote was not directed at 'you' and I stand by my 'preference' of common sense / science as it relates to wire. Go forward, listen and enjoy !

    I heard many good comments on Analysis Plus SC, may go to the dealer to have an audition to see if I like the sound.

    A couple of days ago TAS published this review of A+'s top line Silver Apex speaker cable:

    The Analysis Plus is fabulous. MSB strongly recommends it. We use it with all our MSB gear.

    I go further. I believe a good cable can be more important than room treatment if you have a normal room, with normal furniture, with no echo. That´s enough for me.
