I seem to be stuck for posting. Even the MP3 clips are too big to attach here, and my soundcloud account won't take them because of copyright.
Gotta figure out where to host them.

Here are the files in high birate MP3. I also have FLAC, which are 3X as large, will try to get those up later today.

Let me know what you think!

Edit: Flac files here:
Fancy Interconnects? How about a potato, or even mud?

Really quickly ran them through my laptop speakers, expecting to hear something different immediately.
I honestly couldn't tell.

My time's taken up revising for exams, but I'll give this some more attention when I can.

Wet noodle interconnects should be easy to make. For coax, you could thread spaghetti through macaroni. What to use for insulation though?

Going to put them on a flash drive and plug straight into a Marantz Pearl-Lite.

Don't tell us yet

Initial impressions... and there's not much in it so at the risk of making a total plonker of myself,

A) The best with the most consistent imaging and best "hf" detail. Sharply focused image.

B) Generally excellent, with good timbre but image seemed to be biased to the left (very very slightly).

C) This was the one I couldn't pin down. Something about the vocals and the vocal image varying "in height" yet a good overall image.

D) This was the worst with almost a "forced" quality, a poor image and an underlying weird kind of distortion (a coarseness) to the vocals.

Do try steel wool, too. That kind of furry madness ... zillions of pretty good conductors with really terrible ohmic contacts between them. Ought to be instructive. And of course a pencil. You know, the graphite which historically has been called "lead", though it has been 300 years since real lead was in the pencil. And what about a waterhose? Good ... long distance conductor, if filled with saline water. Even has an insulator on the outside, making it almost a coax. Hey... there's the answer to the "spaghetti inside a macaroni" coax idea. Spaghetti inside a hose inside a bucket of water. I'm thinking that any flesh might work well: a pork chop with wires attached. Wouldn't want to use chicken though, since everything already tastes like chicken. Oh, oh! A snake! Perfect dimensions too. Does snail or slug slime conduct? Printed circuit boards with snail slime! Ewww... for really long conductors, there's lianas, vines and kelp-bed stalks. Salty that kelp, too. Tough. Worms dry out too quickly.

Random thoughts. What a wonderful thing, is a mind to waste.

I think someone already did the water hose thing.

This thread is hilarious!!!

Thanks for the laughs.

Clip A sounds better than the others, so I would guess that it's the direct CD source. That's about all I can say.
