Default active cable schematic

Not sure if this is the right place to place this thread.

But I recently found a schematic for active cable in a Chinese web page and would like to share with all of you here for any comments on using similar circuits?

Personally I prefer not to turn my cables into microphones

Some people like it though.

Not that the Chinese care about US intellectual property, but the design is patented and the patent is currenty owned by Monster Cable who are in the middle of a lawsuit against AudioQuest over their DBS line of cables.

Interesting, Steve. And a double coincidence- the inventor, Demian Martin, is a member here. And the law firm happens to be the same one I use for my patents. So I *know* it has to be a good, solid patent!

Speaking of doubles, there now seems to be two of this same thread.

Nope, both links take you to the same place. I just moved it and left the link intact so that the poster could find it.
