Hi Eric,

Happy birthday to you!

Here we go.

TEAC changed their web site around so you can't get to this image through the regular links, but they still have the photo in their image directory.

Hey dude! I agree too. Do I get a pint? It's just that I don't think a null test is an effective application of science.

Well, it wouldn't be too hard to make a totally transparent interconnect (speaker cable is a bit tougher). You could even make one with transparent colors, maybe a transparent red conductive stripe for plus and transparent green for minus, embedded in a transparent sheath.

I propose a contest: how much would you charge for a 1 m pair of transparent interconnects to help create a perceived value? What would be the line you'd give to explain why these sound soooo much better than those crappy opaque copper and silver interconnects?

My entry: "The photons of any light bang against the conducting material. Conventional metals (like copper or silver) look the way they do, shiny and opaque, precisely because photons interact with the electron cloud characteristic of conductive metals. That random interaction with the electron cloud which is responsible for the conduction of the metal certainly affects signal passing through it in a random way. The electrons jump around in their conduction bands every time one of those photons hit it, causing random fluctuations in the timing and arrival of musical cues.

In the case of OUR interconnects, the photons pass through without interacting with anything. That's TRANSPARENCY. The random photons in any listening room don't interact with the cable and don't fuzz up the music."

Default P2p.

Hi,

It is p2p wired so it's pretty time consuming
Interesting...I suppose you too must have noticed that P2P wiring sounds better?

Cheers,

Why not if i can give us repetitif resaults...at diferent times and locations??
Isn't this the scientific methode?

Wellcome a board!!

Ok. I'm ignorant of your methodology. I just recall, vaguely, that Hafler's method wasn't very good at making Hafler amps sound superior. How about elaborating on your method? (I jumped into this thread today so if you've explained it already then let me know).
Cheers!
