Not my deeply held belief.

I'm just wondering why it's not one of John's. It's been shown to "work" by the exact same measure other things, such as not using steel chassis have been shown to "work."

It "sounds better."

Steve, here's your problem: you don't know the difference between the Judean Popular People's Front and the Popular Front of Judea. Easy mistake for a novice, but please don't rile up the villagers any further.

I wonder if you could explain why reasonably well aged "generic" (e.g. what comes in the box with most cheap gear) cables do not measure like a loopback using RG-223/Mil on HD?

Ciao T
Most cheap gear does not come with RGB/YPrPb or HDMI cables. Do you mean taking the "red-white-yellow" set and using it for HD? In that case I could understand.

HD = Harmonic Distortion

The cables with the steel center conductors measured no differently than those with pure copper wires.

If you can't measure any difference that often is an indicator your test is not sensitive enough.

There are no freaking microdiode effects. I have deliberately add copper oxides to a conductor and after cooling the distortion did not change.

However there are microdiodes the Leprechauns keep them next to the pot of gold.

But Ed you showed pictures of sharp discontinuities in conductivity. The VI curves you posted will rectify (if they really exist).

My misread Thorsten

That's because your test equipment is full of cheap nasty copper, which hides the effect.

The curves you refer too are not microdiodes. Lets be clear that diodes always conduct although it is not linear as per voltage versus current. There is another issue (dead zone) and when I get a bit more along I'll show more.

The issue of oxide's forming diodes was a specific cable test and there were no changes noted at a level at which distortion in the interconnects was noted.

Yes. Gotta get some ultra pure, single crystal, Ohno continuous cast copper wire.

Cryoed of course.
