It's like déjà vu all over again.

This topic has been debated to death again and again and again.
What's the point in debating it again?
I don't see anyone convincing anyone of anything.

Someone posted a photo of a headphone amp with a heroic power supply.
The power supply rejects conducted noise by what mechanism?

And that's the trick. If people would not make it about the person by talking about other people, like x838nwy did, it's possible to have civil discourse and disagree.

Maybe one day it will be confirmed that in some specific situation, that USB cables do help. Until then, I think people are better off saving up money for better headphones/speakers where everyone KNOWS that there is a good SQ benefit. smily_headphones1.gif

At the end of the day, it really comes down to:

"It's my money and I don't have to justify to anyone here how I spend it!"

I also own a decent (read: expensive, although not TOO expensive) BNC to RCA digital cable, and a few (much cheaper) TOSlink optical cables. Guess what? They all sound the same.

Similar tale to tell here. I've kept the fancy (read: asinine expensive) cables as reminders of past foolishness. Those interested in chasing the dragon, go for it and spend away.

Some guy named Colombus.
Who was actually lost.
Or maybe not?

Confused.

Yeah,

but they knew the earth was round and Columbus thought he could get to the east indies more quickly by heading west .:confused:

That's why I was wondering what he was talking about; it was satirical, I guess .

(I hope :smile:).

 

And this has to do with USB cables?

Nada.

 

Just like the surreal discussion of an amplifier power supply, mixing ripple, rectification noise and mains noise in a big soup and still having nothing to do with the issue at hand.

Columbus got bored with the tweaks he could get in europe, so he went to see if anyone had and any power distributor or mpingo discs for sale in the us. It is the view of scholars that his sails were made from ers cloth.
