Come back when you understand a bit more. You will be warmly welcomed.

In the meantime, please do not pollute the thread. Thanks.
The pollution that was introduced here seems to the idea that a measurement is not an observation.

I'd like to see a credible Venn diagram that did not show measurement as a subset of observation.

My goodness man, google the following:

observation measurement experimentation

The above seems to be to be a transparent attempt to assert an agenda of demonizing measurements. Pollution in any intellectual discussion.

Arny, Ken is a poet. Don't try to make technical sense out of what he writes, just enjoy the flow of words. He can be quite entertaining.

Anyway, his thread is not for argument; or questioning of people's positions on component choices. There's a hundred other threads that cover that discussion. We're trying to get something done here. I appreciate the questions, etc, but the 'audio fight club' belongs elsewhere. Thank you.

I take it this is the same Arny I went head to head with on the rec.audio.highend message boards back in the mid-early 90's?

The same Arny that argued that 44/16 was good enough for everybody and is essentially perfect? Who was so insistent in everything ----and proven wrong so many times?

don't answer that, I think we're done here......

You must bed really desperate for an argument, given that the post you have seized on was made 19th August 2015 at 04:50 PM..

Not feeding trolls these days, if I can help it.

EVOX/Kemet PFR series low value polypropylene capacitors: Magnetic leads

Panasonic ECW-F low value (eg 0.018uf/630v) polypropylene capacitors: Magnetic leads.

The vast majority of the panasonic ECW-F capacitors are non-magnetic (in the 250v series), but... be wary of design changes.

Kemet Bulgarian manufactured metallized polypropylene film caps, series R75L, 0.1uf & 0.047uf value.... 250ac/560dc (long lead, loose/bulk, digikey sourced): NON-magnetic

Which bodes well for the other values in the 75L series (some may not be non magnetic). Price is low, one of the lowest per unit for the given voltage rating, so this might be a go-to cap, if it's sonic qualities pan out.

http://www.kemet.com/Lists/ProductCa...301_R752-L.pdf

Vishay F339X1 AC filter series, 4700pf: magnetic leads (as expected, this is AC power, no copper/tin leads under high voltage mains applications, too risky)

Some RG6 coaxial cable has a copper clad steel center conductor. Some years ago I was the chief engineer for big and popular FM radio station. I replaced a three foot section of coax cable between the station's audio processor and it's transmitter with RG223 which has a silver plated copper center conductor. When I got into my car for a listen I was amazed at the difference. Two people who work at the station also commented to me that the station sounded better. Neither of them knew that I had made a change and neither of them had spoken to the other. When I checked to see what the old coax cable was made of I found copper clad steel. The idea of non-linear series inductance for cable seems to make sense to me.
