there has been a heated exchange with lots of thrust and parry regarding the audibility of cabling differences on that forum. and the vapid responses by some of the members there keep going to reisitance measurements and the audio engineers among them are difinitely shouldering that line.
here is a quote:
Jay Hennigan • Hifitommy wrote, without benefit of a SHIFT key:
"how can there be a significant improvement of the resulting image captured by just changing a lens of the same power on a camera? could it be the material the lens is made of, the precision with which it was ground, or maybe the accuracy of the exact dimensions the housing was machined to?
the same might be questioned of cabling used in audio transmission. you dont suppose people like doug sax or joe harley have perceptions that some others don't?"
Many people can discern, by looking at the resulting photographs, the difference between lenses of varying quality. These properties can also be measured in terms of aberration, distortion, sharpness, color differences, etc.
I have asked before, without getting an affirmative answer, the following:
Can anyone point to an example where a human listener (which would include Doug Sax or Joe Harley) can reliably, with greater predictability than random chance, discern an audible difference between ANY two pairs of speaker cables where both have a DC resistance of less than 10% of the speaker impedance and both are less than three meters in length, providing that the listener does not know which is which?"
this is mild compared to some of the diatribes. does anybody care to speak up on this matter here or even there? i have been quite vocal there only to be denigrated by one particular engineer type.
