Virtual Dynamics and the speed of the light

post #1 of 89
Thread Starter 
Is Virtual Dyanmics still marketing those faster than the speed of light powercords?

A while ago on audiogon, someone from Virtual Dyanmics claimed that he had a dream, in which God showed him how to construct faster than the speed of light powercords. Later on, he claimed that he actually did it.

Is Virtual Dynamics still selling these faster than light powercords? I am interested in getting one of those.

Check their website.

Nowhere on the site (that I can find) does it say speed of light technology makes the current flow faster than the actual speed of light. It is just advertised that they use earth magnets to accelerate the "energy flow."

https://www.virtualdynamics.ca/Speed-of-Light-4-0/

I don't know for sure, and I'm sure Acoustic Chef can clear this up, but the technology is just named after light to give consumers the ideal that the cord speeds up the flow of the current in the power cord.

That's not exactly what that person from Virtual Dynamics claimed about these powercords when he made that explosive proclaimation on audiogon a couple of years ago.

Virtual Dyanmics could have modified their position over the years.

Magnets speeding up the flow of energy. Interesting. Has he applied for any patents yet? If this is true, then he could be raking in big money from utility companies.

So how do these powercords sound?

Wow...I am speechless.

If that's true (but I assume whoever would say something like that was just joking) then all I can say is:

Apparently a lot of people shared the same reaction in those audiogon threads.

But the all important question is, how do these powercords sound?

No, it wasn't meant to be a joke.

Now that I think about, I distinctly remember that it was actually the founder of Virtual Dynamics who made that proclaimation. He was quite serious at the time. There were long threads over at audiogon, where he vigorously defended his dream and his creation.

I'll let you know as soon as I get the Master LE 2.0 power cord loaner.

But the Power 3 sounds excellent. I have a thread on it.

Poor Rick. Hopefully he can come here and respond to those allegations.

Power cords don't sound...

Taken directly from Virtual Dyanmics' website, speed of light section:

"The audible differences between each Level [apprently there are levels 1-4]of Speed of light is readily discerned and a quality we love to demonstrate to our customer who visit us in the process of building their cables."

speed of light sounds like nordost.

What does the speed of light have to do with the speed of electricity? Also, what does the speed of electricity matter given that most homes are wired with AC? Current is flowing both ways...

This guy's blog post about the speed of electricity is pretty interesting. He says that it comes down to the dielectric used, and with air, the "velocity factor" approaches the speed of light. Exceeding the speed of light would be pretty amazing.

Like others have said, power cords don't sound. That is why they are called power. Power cords transfer 110 or 220 volts of AC from your wall to your component.
