Lessloss Blackbody
 
Sorry if you've seen this before, but I just came across it:-Blackbody - $959.00 : LessLoss high end audio power cables, audiophile power cables, audiophile cables. There's also a Stereo Times review of it here:- StereoTimes --.

It's this kind of stuff that males me distrust audio reviews so much.

Here's a quote from the Stereo Times review

Quote:

What we call reflection is actually (and counter-intuitively) the absorption and re-emittance of electromagnetic energy (electron-photon interaction in quantum electro-dynamic terms). This is potentially a bad thing when signal purity is an absolute priority, as it is in high fidelity audio equipment. Not only is the energy that bounces back in different phase, but it is of a different wavelength or wavelengths. (My bold)
Right, I look in a mirror and everything's changed colour.

$959.00

These people have no shame.

This part is intended to impress people who are 'into' science, but don't actually know any science. Probably somewhere else there will be blurb aimed at people who hate science, but are 'into' crystals and 'energy' lines etc. The big question always is: do they believe it themselves, or do they just hope we believe it? Are they fools or knaves?

Annie Get Your Gun is a musical with lyrics and music written by Irving Berlin and a book by Herbert Fields and his sister Dorothy Fields. The story is a fictionalized version of the life of Annie Oakley (1860-1926), who was a sharpshooter from Ohio, and her husband, Frank Butler.[1]

It's all that and more.
It's also something you can say in a tongue in cheek manner when there is something as unjust as a $959 power cable. When a sharpshooter is needed to scare them there shysters back into line. :)

Cal, the power cable is $5000. The $959 is for the box that does nothing. But you need at least four in order to experience the lack of effect.

I made the mistake of reading the linked Stereo Times article. I don't often call people "stupid," just "naive," "gullible," "credulous." I am tempted to make an exception...

Cal Weldon 14th February 2011 04:41 PM

Ah yes, I see that in my haste to discredit the power cable I failed to notice it wasn't a cable at all but a mysterious black box.

The cable must be on sale now. It is a mere $1149

High end audio power cables, audiophile power cables, audiophile cables

Thin air? Hmm...seems pretty thick to me.

Wouldn't those people be called into Science Fiction, and not Science?!

Peace,
