    Testing audiophile claims and myths

    It's just a plugin for digital audio workstation software that lets you recreate string sections for whatever you're working on. Ironically, the samples are 48kHz/24bit, far too low for Mr. @analogsurviver. Must be why he's calling it "fake".

    That and price-performance. To get those deep lows you need to shell out.

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

    Being convinced and being correct are two different things. This isn't politics, we can arrive at real, physical truths. 1. No. 2. No. Material: No. Physically impossible. Either material carries the same signal the same way, and in a headphone cable, the driver is likely going to be way...

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

    My only issue is that they won't give the test a fair shake (in this case I doubt it's possible) and it will only further reinforce a bias towards cables making a difference because of the money they spent.

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

    What phenomena do you think we cannot measure? We can measure bass, we can measure treble, and we can measure dynamics and impulse response, all to a further degree than the human ear by many, many orders of magnitude. Audio signals are *fully* understood from a physics standpoint. There is no...

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

    Hey I'm totally on board with the notion of electromechanical systems needing some "break-in". But your amplifier doesn't need break in, and neither do your cables, DAC, or anything else. Systems that are have a changing response over time should be regarded as "crap".

    Testing? No one is testing cables. It's settled science.

    What's the best design for a cable and why?

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

    Do you know what that means in the context of the transmission of audio?

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

    I don't believe it's on the order of 1.5-2 ohms. If so I don't think I would trust the rest of the engineering of the IEM.

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

    No. Show me a stock cable with a resistance of 1.5-2 ohms that's shipped with 10 ohm or 16 ohm very high end IEMs (they have multiple parallel drivers, hence the low impedence). There is simply no way. If so, that is indeed a poorly engineered cable.

    Oh jesus. This little section of the forum is not for you my man.
