No need to wonder and dream about the sound of exotic cables, here they are! Listen and hear for yourself. Or do your own tests, it's easy.

I'll post the clips in FLAC format later today.

can't tell the difference

Thanks for taking the time to listen, guys. I thought it might be fun to hear what different materials do to the signal. My big surprise in doing this was how little difference it makes. I was really hoping for more. Of course it's kinda surprising that it works at all.

OK, I've had another listen, this time with my (certainly not great quality) logitech usb headphones on (palying off my laptop). The only thing I will say for certain is that track D has two glitches in it. One between 28 and 29 seconds and the other between 58 and 59 seconds (this is on the mp3's).

I've played it multiple times and the glitch (sounds like a skip) is consistently in the same two spots.

I'll have to go back and check the others to see if they have any as well.

Other than that I'm struggling to pick up any differences.

Tony.

Don't do the "reveal" too soon- I won't have time to give these a close listen until this weekend and don't want to miss the fun.

Preliminary listen... can't tell any difference (yet) except for D having those glitches where it cuts out briefly. I'm guessing potato/banana on that.
