    So what was exactly wrong with Patrick82?

    I don't have a problem, in fact I found Patrick82's antics to be very revealing of audiophilia in general.

    So what was exactly wrong with Patrick82?

    It seems that the general attitude to him is to politely regard him as a bit of a village fool. Why? On the broad spectrum of things he slots very neatly into the psychoacoustic phenomenon surrounding the entire audiophile business of cables, power conditions, and another not electronically...

    Don't bend your wires, don't touch them at all!

    I don't know, actually. But I remember how people were distinguishing between different elemental platings on connectors, which amounted to distinguishing the difference in the Fermi surface of a material ... and this is probably masked by the amount of bending and twisting you do to a cable...

    How do I convince people that audio cables DO NOT make a difference

    Quote: I didn't mean to appear harsh, but to summarize, asking me to believe there is a difference outside of psychoacoustics is as annoying to me as (I presume) me asking you to believe there isn't one. It's like telling me my education is useless, and I guess me telling you your hearing...
