HSS Episode 24-Do Expensive Cables Really Matter?

In this episode I discuss some results I got when I did some A/B testing on some high end cables. Also, I recently installed a Furman PL-8 Series Power Conditioner. Was it worth it?

Gear Review:

New to the arsenal is a Nady RSM-4 Ribbon Mic, I cover briefly my thoughts on this new mic I just acquired for $75 on eBay. Full review of the mic soon to come. By the way, I actually used this mic to record the episode you're listening to!

A link to the PSN Podcast episode with Slau, where he gives some great audio examples of ribbon mics.
