    Just because the ruler you use is different than that of others, it doesn’t make you right nor it isn’t justified for others.

    And that means all other after market ac cables shouldn’t be any better? Absolutely not.

    I wonder who started this?

    Not knowing Ohm’s law has nothing to do with one’s hearing ability. For what is worth, if you use any type of flash memory, chances are they have my design contributions.

    Are you saying there can be no correlation between laws of Physics and ones cognitive ability to hear ?

    As for your 'ruler statement' ....... LOL, you obviously can't answer my question !

    Here we go again. I refuse to get sucked into this.

    Note to self: apparently “LOL” is not for everyone.

    OK, so this can now be added to "settled science".
    There are those that can hear a difference and those that cannot.
    Now this thread, if continuing, is for those that can hear a difference.
    My System:
    A trusty old Pioneer PD-65 as a Transport, Lumin A-1, a Merrill Heirloom T.T. as sources. A Lampizator DAC to PAD Cables to a SP-14 Tubed PreAmp, Pass XA30.5 , Fusion speaker cables, AudioKinesis Zephryn 46 Speakers. pair Rythmik F-12 subs, EP2050, Kaplan Power cables, Hydra power conditioner, Two dedicated 20Amp power lines. DIY corner traps and Acoustic Geometry Curves for room treatment.

    It's not just about a difference, it's if it's any better. And if it's better, is it better in every way, or are there any drawbacks?

    Isn't that what we sort out in every component we purchase?

    My friend had been asking himself all the time where the midbass was in his system. Once he got rid of his power conditioning and all his fancy power chords, exchanging them for stock, he had his midbass back in all its glory. Kind of a big deal I would think.
