PM me a shipping address. I will send you a few coils to measure so we can compare notes. I think you are drifting off the issue of disagreement.

We both understand there is more than one issue affecting signals in a cable. The issue is inductance and if it changes in a coiled cable.

So inductance bridges at high noon, stranger!

I have a question to those who might know the details better - John, Scott, Brad..

What's the difference, if there is any, in Jfet manufacturing process that makes the transistors from the same process (say 51, National semi) switching ones in one case (J111) and low noise in other case (PF5101)? Quality control? Some ommited or extra process? Different wafers? Cleaninness? Different manufacturing line?

Thanks!

Interesting article here about PCB material and very high data rates. One for JN and the physicists here to get their teeth into I guess!

Will we now find 'high-end' people claiming that glass weave skew destroys stereo imaging and creates smear? After all, 2ps of skew must be audibly better than 6ps of skew.

Default Channel separation measurement for JN

I have made one more channel separation measurement, especially for JN. Now, the whole chain of Preamplifier + PA4 power amplifier was measured. With cables and everything, of course. Then, a measurement of Preamplifier alone was done. One may see that the power amplifier has not changed the measurement result! Finally, as a reminder, channel separation of power amplifier PA4 alone is shown. The conclusion is that it is a preamp that defines channel separation, in case that power amplifier has a proper dual-mono layout and proper wiring.

You can take everything out of context as much as you want to. Anyone can go back and read forward.
Ed, I don't have the energy right now but I distinctly remember you stating that someone left the wire coiled and his measurements were "all wrong" implying that uncoiled would have been OK.

You need more information, the noise can depend on channel length within the same process. Other things, gettering could be left out, starting matierial maybe, different fab maybr too, but I don't think anyone can afford diirty fabs today.

I can't find PF5101 DS so can't tell if it is actually same die. Seriously cold here, SY must be experiencing real winter for once.
