One thing is for sure- people can hear frequency response changes on the order of magnitude of 1 dB. So if two cables cause frequency response differences because of, ahhhh, unconventional engineering in the chain, EQing the system to remove that difference is far and away the most likely way to eliminate any audible differences. For sure, it takes the claim of audibility from plausible to imaginary horses. At that point, it's up to the imaginative to do the demonstrating.
I hear no imagination. Why do you feel that it is imagination for all that hear?

Why do you feel it's not? You haven't bothered to investigate that possibility.

I have no reason to question myself. It is you that are doing the questioning.

You're making the extraordinary claim without a shred of backup other than, "Neeners, neeners, I can hear it!" So yes, your claim is eminently questionable.

Well if it were "just me", then yes you would have a point, but given the number that do hear, who's imagination is that?

What is extraordinary is that many continue to tell everyone that hears differences that they do not exist. I guess we all are in colusion

So homeopathy, astrology, dowsing, "free energy," and clairvoyance work. 'Cause after all, lots of people believe them.

I have zero experience with any of those fields. I only know what my 30+ years of listening have taught me.

Both Curley and I can hear 'it' . It is important to me as an audio professional, not to exclude what is obvious to others, and me, in an audio environment, such as a hi fi show. We used $5000 sets of cables at the RMAF. We tried cheaper $1000 or so cables, but they were not as good sounding, but they looked just as impressive. Of course, we have to make a living at making our audio products to sound the best possible to a number of people who have never heard the audio system that we are presenting, and therefore are less 'forgiving' of its potential flaws.

Did you test them to see why? What "it" are you guys hearing that wouldn't be measurable in terms of Frequency Response or maybe Phase?
