It is unfortunate that many of you do not understand why I even bother to debate this stuff. I am here to teach. I am getting old, I have spent my life looking at this stuff, and I am trying to share what I have learned, especially the general concepts. It seems to me that the old adage 'To teach a person to fish, is better than just giving a person a fish' is appropriate here. That is why I push toward general principles, rather than specific schematics. To give you a schematic to copy once, perhaps haphazardly, is a waste of my and your time. To get you to understand the subtle differences between schematics is my goal.

Never thought you would sink so low, John. You're a great educator.

I did put it in quotes. What is your problem, can't discuss the subject?

Andre is not ignorant, he did the cable comparison to his satisfaction. His results parallel ours. It is only you and your cronies who refuse to listen to differences openly.

My wife gave me two for Christmas. Still can't figure out how those folks in Pudong airport made it look so easy.

John lets start with virtually all cable makers buy their starting materials from the same few global suppliers, so why would any cable behave any differently than SY's orange HD extention cord to burn in?

That's right and both are screened twisted pair cables.

I guess I must have read about your findings in a dream even before I've joined diyAudio, must be delusion.

No need to speculate what other influences etc. These are all well known. You refuse to educate yourself. You deliberately chose to remain ignorant. Your choice.

The first blind test just confirmed what I've heard during sighted listening, after burn-in the difference (both sighted and blind) was so obvious that it would have been a waste of time to continue.

Just for your information, this test were done before I knew of all you clever guys here so I did it to satisfy my own interest.

Thanks Andre, I sure wish that I didn't hear cable differences, myself, it is so tedious and expensive to do it right.
