Interesting developments on the "science and engineering meet cables" front (seriously)

Hot of the 'presses' (well... the internet, since this year's meeting was - of course - virtual), an interesting presentation on some 'hard science' studies on the historically more 'black magic' aspects of wire.

    You have to be careful with papers like that. Not saying it is not true.....just that as a scientist I know there are a lot of junk papers out there and i would I would treat this convention paper as one of them.

    Audio patents can be even worse. Patent reviewers just check claims and do not reproduce the science. And all a patent means is that no one else can sell it (not that it works or is useful). There are a lot of patents that are total BS but companies pay the money to get them approved. Then they claim their widget has to work. After all there is a patent for it.

    No one will ever convince a cable naysayer. They wouldn't admit cables make a difference even if they heard a difference.

    "A doctrine fostered by a delusional, illogical minority and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a t-u-r-d by the clean end."

    That's the abstract.
    Not ethical for me to reproduce the whole presentation.

    Well I don’t know much. But if you have the budget to afford higher end cables And you like the sound that is a beautiful thing! But if you’re happy with the budget cable that too is a beautiful thing! We all have different goals for our systems and we all have different budgets and family situations. I am just glad to be along For the ride! So rock on and enjoy your weekend!
