All cables have inductions and resistance, and data transferred in digital formats are in binaries. Music has frequencies towards both ends of the audio spectrum where its too slow for us to be able to hear, and too fast for us to be able to hear.
Now, inductance is when bits of binary data is too fast and too many but suddenly there's a little gap of 0. For instance: 1111111011111111.
Since binary only has 1/0 or yes/no, and this data is transferred through power (electricity in the cable), there's a chance that the transferred signal is received as: 1111111111111111 because the cable's inductance bridged the 0 with electricity from the surrounding 1.
Resistance is when 0000000010000000 gets transferred as 0000000000000000 because the cable's resistance rendered the single bit to 0.
That's only one bit of data. We got lossless format now, wonder how many million/more bit of data transferred per second.
Your friend needs to get educated in the stuff he spouts off about.
With respect, the speed at which data is sent is but a fraction of what the cable is able to support. That's point #1.
Secondly, if that were true, that would result in data corruption. Just a slight corruption of archived data (such as a ZIP file, for instance) would result in the file's ID and data content to change. There are keys that are sent to validate such data constantly. If there's a mismatch, you would be alerted. You could perform a copy or move operation a million times over and you would never be able to reproduce data corruption that would be traced back to the cable.
See, the problem with repeating stuff like this is that misinformation can be read and transmitted to a whole slew of people who will believe it just because there are words in there that this person might not understand. It's critical to be aware that there are some error-correction schemes in order to prevent any of that stuff from occurring.
Let's stick to the topic of the Aune T1 because seeing a dead horse being beaten (again) like this especially in this thread isn't interesting, nor is it helpful in any way to people here.
This will be my last msg in this thread about this topic.
