Interesting article debunking some more audiophile cable mythology ....
'Can a mains cable be used as a ‘filter’ to block the entry of Radio Frequency Interference (RFI) into domestic audio equipment from the mains?'
By Dr Jim Lesurf, School of Physics & Astronomy,
St Andrews University.
'Are some fancy forms of cable generally better at doing this? Some recent papers have been published that present measurements on some mains cables.

The idea being that the specific way the cables are constructed does provide higher RFI rejection. The contents of the papers has been said to provide a ‘scientific’ basis for the claims about the specific cables. I’ve been curious about this topic for some years, so I decided to investigate and see what I conclusions I could reach...'
