Re: Who makes the best oil filled cables?

Dup, God has never tried to hide His existance, and proof does not negate faith, but but calling something truth does not make it so. The faith comes, as Jesus said "by hearing." Not from the blather that some naysayer posts about his own outdated cable theories.

Beware! If there is any suggestion that the cable needs to be 'broken in' before you hear the difference, the salesperson is lying! At this point, you should immediately let them know that you know that they are lying, and leave the shop. Cable 'break-in' is a myth, and is perpetuated by those with something to hide - no-one has ever been able to show that there is any scientific justification to the claim, nor shown that the performance has changed in any way whatsoever. Cable break-in is real, and occurs between the ears of the listener - nowhere else (most certainly not in the cable).

This, from the referenced article, suggests that the author needs to do more listening and less measuring.

Re: Who makes the best oil filled cables?

Maybe an SEM or TEM image will show something physically changed, what is going on in this wire? And how is this making a difference in something I would hear, and why would it do what it's doing if it's doing anything at all. Are audio signal electrons different than electrons making my sonicare charge up? Now don't give me the standard well just listen line, I listen a lot actually, hours a day, teh wires ain't doing anything different than when they where first put in. don't tell me my stuff then ain't too revealing, cus' I guarantees ya's it's up there, as far as detail, realism, and letting ya hear it all.

DUP, I'm not sure a supposed debunker of myths should choose "audioholic" as his rallying cry. Still, I know that bathing your wire in Havoline WD-40 before each listening session will smooth out the peaks and valleys that have been jostling your audio chariot. While you're at it, give your Van Alstines and Wurlitzers a snort or two. I'll even bet that a shot (neat, of course) will re-clock the jitter between your ears, if sipped slowly. When you gonna stop with the recommended reading lists and give us your OWN science? Cheers, Clifton

Re: Who makes the best oil filled cables?

That's the problem, everyone has their own "science"..so facts and measurements, and you still think something goes on in a wire, called "breakin". What is havoline WD-40 Havoline doesn't make WD-40 WD-40 is anot motor oil. But now I see why you think wires break in, you are very confused......And a Leslie Speaker is used at musical performances....But it was Hammond i beleive used Leslie, slick idea too. How do i come up with my own "science"..I don't market wire or magic dots or cable lifts? Now certainly you have your wires off the carpet to prevent carpet induced colorations..hahahahahahaha, now that's science
