Everything hinges on composition and the existing microstructure, as well as any residual stresses and/or deformations. Material phase changes are usually reversible, especially if the temperature changes are made gradually. Changes that are not reversible: - precipitation (ie: of solute alloying elements, carbides, etc) - change in grain...
Is there some kind of connection with the mods on this site and ayre audio? Are there a pile of ayre fan boys/girls that do not want any technical discussions of ayre audio products? Seems that ONLY the ayre audio threads are being locked.

Depends, the high end is very "tricky" on their specs but when properly measured by sites like audioholics we get a clear picture. Point being with the cryo snake oil is that there are no changes and hence no difference in sound.
toenshend cryo interview Quote: Can any of this measured? No, not with a DVM or oscilloscope, but a resounding yes with the most sensitive measuring instrument of all: your ears! Got ya.
