Virtual Dynamics and the speed of the light - Page 2

post #16 of 89
Cables are part of the equation of how our music sounds at the ear. The better the cable the more "out-of-the-way" that component becomes in the sytem. This is simple enough for me and actually what I have found to be my experience.

Let's not get caught up on this point. Cables (power, interconnect, etc.) don't "have a sound," but their electrical properties can affect the resultant sound quality, thereby allowing someone to attribute them with having a sound signature.

The really interesting question is, what does the speed of light have to do with sound quality?

This is where I am bummed out as well. Do faster traveling electrons make your electronics "sound" better?

And can Virtual Dynamics apply this same kind of technology to interconnects (RCA to RCA)? Will speeding up the speed of electrons in interconnects improve your system's overall sound quality?

I read a thread or two over in the Asylum about magnets and what they offer. It seems that they do offer some shielding (not RFI) for magnetic interferences from outside the cable from near field components which may include other cables. The problem apparently with magnets is that they may become saturated and loose this effect over time. I am already over my head in saying this much but that is as much as I understood or thought I understood. Along the cable at those small particles surrounding the wires to minimize vibration which have been described in earlier thread about Virtual Dynamics. These may be such that they can carry some field across the length of the cable between two magnets which may increase their effects in this area. This is pure conjecture on my part.

Yes, because the manufacturer's site is such a great source of peer-reviewed, unbiased claims and making positive claims would be of absolutely no benefit to them.

By the way, gullible is written on the ceiling.

Come on. If god himself has his hands in this, things can't be that bad. I'm a little surprised he's interested in entertainment electronics, though.

I feel a little tempted to scrounge one of virtual dynamics give-aways that pop up periodicaly, and enjoy feeling really satanic listening to "South Of Heaven" with it.

It's all pure conjecture. A power cable is a power cable, unless your dog has chewed on it.

See ya

@slwiser, do you think that the magnets have something to do with the "speed of light" claims?

I would be really concerned about relativistic effects of using these cables. I mean, wouldn't it be terrible if you listened to music for a couple of hours using these cables and then found that all of your friends and family had aged by several years because of the time dilation?

Cool! Never thought about the time dilation effects until you mentioned it!

That is just silly. Besides, Acoustic Chef will only back it up with more marketing garbage, he knows nothing about physics.

has anyone seen the virtual dynamic you tube videos? theyre pretty funny:
YouTube - Audiogon Launch Interview pt 1
an employee of virtual dynamics has a script that reads like hes part of another company or something. its all very goofy and they dont even realize it.

YouTube - Rick talks about power conditioners
a thicker power cord between the amp and the wall apparently lets your amp produce more power?? what?

YouTube - Dynamic Filtering Tech Video
microphonics can be stopped by.... pouring sand into cables??

YouTube - Linipur Tech Video v2
the more strands you have inside the cable the more the signal gets screwed up? you would think they would cite sources on things like this..

You can't blame those guys. Because of the aforementioned time dilation effects with using those Speed of Light powercords, Rick and those guys are probably still trying to finish junior high...
