SF is a literary genre, where for the purposes of entertainment people are temporarily willing to partially suspend disbelief in vaguely reasonable extrapolations of known science. The best SF, in my opinion, does not extrapolate too far.

Buying fancy cables requires, for the purposes of entertainment, a permanent willingness to fully suspend disbelief in either unreasonable extrapolations of known science or carefully written spoof versions of known science.

They both take money off you in order to provide entertainment. In the case of SF you generally get what you pay for.

Not so different...SF lets us explore an alternate reality where the scientific principles are bent to a greater or lesser degree in an imaginary world that entertains. Cables such as these use imaginary "scientific" phenomena to produce imaginary benefits that entertain. Biggest difference is that SF entertainment is usually inexpensive while audio-tweako entertainment is almost always curiously expensive...as though the money was the only thing real in the equation!

The difference is, most SF fans realize that SF works are fictitious.

Wow! I read with astonishment how these dimwits, money grabbers are stepping up to SF creators territory. Respect. NOT!

There's good and bad science fiction, fancy cables advertising is....can't go on .....this is too silly.

Default Lithuanian company - Blackbody

It is clear that the scientific sounding words are either marketing-speak or the product designer is trying to explain something that he doesn't understand but only intuits and is using pseudo-science "poetry" embarrassing as it is.

It is not a slam dunk that this product is bogus. 6moons gave it a positive review as did dagogo.

This Lituanian company puts out allegedly very reputable products, DAC 2004 MkII, cables, etc. It doesn't make sense to put out a whack-o product to tarnish their reputation.

In short, because this product is so woooo-woooo, any dealer (of which there are none -- direct ship from factory in Lituania) should allow an in-home trial.

Did some mindless wandering of the web and stubled upon a very positive review of their power cables... It seems lessloss has put some serious effort into creating fake audio web sites they can put their forged reviews in. Either that or some reviewers are really effing stupid or does simply take bribes. I call bogus on everyone that does not call bogus on lessloss.
Only thing about this that makes me happy is that this thread already exists, I came here to start one ;-)

Its obvious,

If you put something heavy on your equipment stand its going to have an effect..perhaps they should have tried a couple of house bricks painted black with sorbothane pads on the bottom for a comparison..then some engineering blue bricks..for a comparison...

Well at the level of desillusion the reviewers are they could just as well omit the entire audio setup and just listen to the blackbody stand-alone... ;-)
