    Re: The good news is.....and the bad news is.....

    I have a firebird on order which is about to arrive! I wonder how far off from Dragon...
    Have you got to hear it as well mike? I have noticed in some cross sections of both cables n the internet that firebird has 2 silver + 2 copper conductors, where dragon has 3 silver + 1 copper conductor ( which is something that makes me wonder, why advertised as all silver?).

    Re: The good news is.....and the bad news is.....

    the firebird Zero been in my system for almost 2 months now. highly recommended!
    yes it expensive, but among all other high end cables my friends use, I haven't yet heard anything that comes even close.
    extended highs without any harshness, great mid range, bass with crazy resolution, energy and definition. it simply gets out of the way. extremely transparent, dynamic and satisfactory sound. basically, it allows you to hear your equipment as it should be heard without any coloration or favoring a frequency over the other - and that is priceless.

    Mike, if AQ Hurricanes are the PC sweet spot, is there a comparable AQ speaker cable sweet spot?

    Firebird Zero. But it really depends on the speakers/amp. The Dragon beats everything, but so it should.

    Re: The good news is.....and the bad news is.....

    I believe I probably would need a bit more expensive speaker to take advantage of these cables.... I mean Jesus, over $27k for speaker wires.... man sometimes coming to the forum makes me feel soooo poor .... and I thought I was doing pretty good ....

    Me. Weíve tried them all in the Mythical Creature series. We use these on our MBL 101e mk2ís. They were quite a step up over Oak and Aspen.

    For me, the Thunderbirds are like the Hurricane Power Cords sonically and in overall value.

    Re: The good news is.....and the bad news is.....

    Thanks Mike,

    How are they as a full-range cable, not using the bass cable? Iím looking to replace my AcousticZen holograms.

    Thanks again.
