Someone did the work for me. Thanks man!

And of course Western Electric was the manufacturing arm of AT&T, and Bell Labs it's research arm. One big happy family.

Oh yeah! I go to bed at night and dream of owning audio equipment that has audible distortion and coloration... I'm green with envy of those who spend large amounts of cash on complete boondoggles. I wish I could be taken advantage of by high end stereo salesmen too!

Why does there seem to be an entirely different set of rules in the Sound Science forum than everywhere else on head-fi?  It wouldn't have taken 10% of these posts to get the poster swatted down if science were the topic of discussion on virtually any other forum here.

 

As stated previously herbie, your posts belong elsewhere on head-fi.  You should move them there because frankly, you're in way over your head here or are simply trolling.

I would assert that you are by a good margin the more narrow-minded.

Oh my gosh! Will you look at that! A Western Electric transistor! How can that be?

Probably Photoshopped:p.  We all know that the old time engineers would have rejected modern technology and the gains it has brought.....  or not.

All opinions are not created equal. Some of them are informed, and some of them are completely incorrect.

Nice!  Here is a whole page.  They even came in nice boxes.

 

https://sites.google.com/site/transistorhistory/Home/us-semiconductor-manufacturers/western-electric

 

You also can get them on ebay.  Perfect for building those homebrew SS amps from real men with real engineering know how.

WOW. I first was pitched on the Monster Cable 3 strand thickness BS in 1984. They are unquestionably much better marketers than scientists or engineers. The primary reason that changing  cables offers "improved sound" (aside from the purchase bias) is that the contacts are cleaned in the process. I've also had a small sample space test of cleaning the contacts of everything plugable and all switch contacts. Nothing was changed. All items that were unplugged (semi-conductors and tubes) were replaced in the same sockets. All wiring was re-connected. The difference was quite audible to people familiar with the equipment and music. Without their knowledge.

No that is the point actually.  An uninformed opinion is worth nothing or perhaps worth less than nothing except to the person holding the opinion.  Holding an incorrect uninformed opinion leads to incorrect choices or limited ability to make progress or understand things.  That is your problem.  Your audio opinions are relatively uninformed.  You think a wide experience validates those opinions.  But they are still wrong and narrow minded.
