Out of curiousity, in Bateman's tests was one end of the DUT tied to ground?

Some subject need only be mentioned and a debate will ensue.

The Bateman articles were very good. If someone can get the link(s) online, it would be appreciated.

How about capacitor measurements you've published at IEEE at "Ommited factors in audio circuit design" paper? This was late 70's I guess, are these numbers still adequate to new caps?

Here's a link to a contrarian view
http://www.electromagnetism.demon.co.uk/2644.htm

Maybe what our capacitors really need are little gold chips with quantumdots. I'm sure Machina Dynamica can design a "Cap Fixer" that magically expires after several capacitors, and magically knows which have and have not been "treated". Maybe we should just wind quantumdots in with the film.... I can see it now, Bybee or Machina Dynamica will start making "Quantum Caps".

There is entirely too much BS in high end audio.
