sata use independent transmit and receive low level differential signals
Therefore,
High bandwidth, seismic, anti-jamming silver wires reduce the difference between transmit and receive signals
That is why my cable could improve sound quality comprehensive
not just only a "brighter" sound

To reduce any affect by fans
I use fansless MB

Northbridge and the CPU heat will be coupled

Then transferred the heat to a enclosed aluminum chassis with shock control of harmonic
Compared with average PC enviroment
It has greatly improved sound

and good digital transmission will incorporate good error correction.
Imagine losing a "1" in your bank account statement. Generally that is not allowed to happen. 1,000,000 does not magically become ,000,000, nor can it become 11,000,000

The same applies to our audio signals. The red book CD had pretty good error correction designed into the storage system. I believe it was suggested that a properly designed CDP could correct for a hole to be drilled through the disc in the data area, provided it was <3mm diameter. If that is true then that is mighty powerful error correction. I wonder if the DVD standard is as robust as that? Or SD? imagine drilling a 1mm diameter hole through your micro SD card and expect the data to be error corrected !!! Or using your SD card to store your computer operating system. Reading that SD stored data apparently corrupts the SD output and the computer fails to operate.

Maybe you have heard about MD5 data integrity checksum? If there are differences in the digital transmission between to digital cables, then the checksum of the same file transmitted over two different cables should lead to different MD5 checksums, right?

right?

RIGHT?

Prove us this

I have even read that, after all, digital signals are really analog signals with a defined pattern, so IT HAS to be influenced....

If you just stamp your feet hard enough and keep saying, "I hear what I hear," it becomes real. Ruby slippers help.

well apparently i have a sata cable on the way to me, i received tracking info a couple of hours ago. i guess we'll see, i'm as skeptical as anyone, but i'll give it a fair hearing. at the least youve got to admire the OP's commitment

Yah, well, that's crazy, if you play from RAM the SATA cable plays no role.. All the 0010110 is stored in ram before going to the cpu. Soo just enable RAM playing in your favorite player. Also I see no reason for the data correction not to work at both ends of the cable, otherwise none of your software would work, or would your OS boot. So yes, this is fine blend snake oil..

I like what you did with the motherboard though. I plan the same but with heatpipes.

Just visit numerous forums and you will quickly learn (you will be taught, to be precise) it is not the case.

Ho Ho Ho,
sorry mispelt
No No No

Go on them explain HOW the difference between the transmitted signal and the recieved cable can improve sound, never mind the rest of that statement.
Now if you were suppose to say that well they are LVDS maybe I would listen, but from that statement!!!!!

Actually that is a rather frequent argument which I am OK with when dealing with SPDIF, digital circuits of the DACs, all the digital circuitry close to the analog stage. The problem is when this argument is risen while discussing how RAM modules affect sound, how SATA communication does so, especially on huge closed-source OSes with tens of running userspace/kernel threads (however painfully streamedlined), i.e. when the DIYers have no reliable way to actually make any meaningful difference.
