Look at us all here at DiyAudio.

The problem is, of course, that we usually have no information
of what dyes are used in the insulation of our cables. The
examples you give are probably not very interesting, by the
way, since they would hardly be uesd nowadays, at least here
in Europe. Maybe cadmium pigments are still allowed for such
use on some markets, but not here. As for chromium, this is not
likely to be used. There are at least three such pigments,
crhomium yellow, rare and very poisinous, chromium green and
viridian. All of these are likely to be considered unnecessarily
expensive for use in cables and the industry most certainly
use azo and phtalocyanine pigments instead.

My guess at pigments used is: azo for yellows, napthol for reds,
phtalocyanines for blue and green, mars pigments for black and
brownish and titanium dioxide for white. I don't have a clue
about how any of these would affect the dielectric properties.
What about magnetic properties? Mars colours are based
of ferroxide, for instance.

Oh dear, this has got far too serious. I was quite enjoying the lunacy of the previous pages, this could get far too informative!

This is the original subject of this thread.

A method used is to let posts
that does not follow the subject
start a new thread.
I think that this is not needed at all in this case.
The different angles presented
can instead gives us new ideas
to implement.

Is there any colored materials we have overlooked?

I personally have a slight idea
that if the color of the clothes I have on,
matches the color of my loudspeaker cables,
I get more tuned in to the music that is playing.
I could be wrong.

Have anyone else tested this?

A problem can be if you use stripped wire for LSP-cable.
Then the color of the insulation is invisable.

Good point, talking about the “Clothes of the Emperor”

Most certainly censorship, I'd guess. This forum has american
readers, mind you.

Seems it can be repeated enough.
But we will endure in our efforts
as this is what we all will benefit from.

Thanks, Eric
you know it both by science and ear,
we know it by some dreadfully bad experiences

You should not say so about our One and Only.
Hope he can forgive you for those words.

Besides, on topic:
we use several different coluors in our amplifiers.
Both inside and outside of them.
As well as many coloors for our wires, resistors and capacitors.
