    I actually agree with your all your suggestions, yet Amirm's like concern eclipsed yours.

    I will be practicing now. Also apply all the recent suggestions to my methods.
    The demo DAP is on the way yet I think I am 11th on the schedule. So things will be quiet a long while.....
    No way, lol cheers to all!

    Set to Mono. Left channel, crap wire, right channel silver wire.

    When will you post results? All of this thread so far is just noise and argument. Let’s see the results of this circus sideshow study. You don’t need a fancy DAP.

    My Adroid does bomb out a lot, UAPP is having a tough time getting SAF/ OTG to work. It is the only app that give 24/96 on my Moto z. Plus I do not have a preamp / player the can provide sufficient volume for my home system replacement. Devorce is a stressful thing. Waiting 10 weeks to make a source decision is my best option. The settlement relocation do not foster my lestening passion in the short while. I want the discernment test to go well, me, with Amirm's help will triumph! The SS DIY division has a long history...
    HIBY in the only DSD player to work with external SD but no OTG AND UAPP bombs out now on both formats. UAPP IS the top tier player by far.

    My current project

    This is never going to work.

    For all the reasons that have been obviously stated.

    Hmm, your profile says you appreciate copper. Have you ever listened, critically, to silver plated industrial teflon wire. It is @amn cheap!

    Just have a second person swap the cables, use the same cable covering/thickness, and wear a blindfold. Is it really that hard?

    Ahh but the divorce is now front seat, relocation, selling off possessions, selling house etc....

    I must build my mini towers this week. The settlement should take about as long as it takes the DP to arrive, about 10 more weeks. Then the review of the DAP. Finally the final ABX in NH once i am settled.
    Note the towers are phenomenally good. They are beyond the Sony pyramids in the mid & upper range and mated to the DAP, bi Amped & fully balanced w/ 1 : 2 passive transformer gain.
    I may nit have time to swap & tweak the opamps for a long wile.
    I say this too because comfort and natural approach is key to the dicernment needed here. "Cans" just do not let me be unencumbered. It was a full system in which I noticed the wire anomalies 24 years ago.

    This big "monkey wrench " needs to be handled first.
    Now once my towers are done then a may speed up the ABX.

    To open up a big connection I notice, my .1% study is something I may remain In LA to find at the Times. Yet I contend that:
    Its claims seem to me to be born out right here at headfi. There is a large majority if "snake oil " advocates being the 99 or so % majority.
    Then the DIY divisions where these science die hards are rejected. These divisions showcase just what I would expect of the .1%. They are also exclusively male!
    I may end up being satisfied at this conclusion of mine, ace the ABX wire test as proof enough for me, and join the freeks!

    All this I have noticed from my teen years and numerious club/ Extravaganzs showing off each freeks equipment. The freeks always stole the spotlight to the scoffing for the maiority....

    How do things change so quickly?
    Due of probation from the SS forum, I was lucky to find a pair of 208 studio 6.5 " CBS version, monitors,
    Several Meizu 6 players , 2 maxed out Apple computers, a G5 & a Mac Pro (sparing no opjtions) .

    So cheers to all. I see NO way that this project will not being completed in a way that SHOULD satisfy all critics.

    So how will the cables be swapped?
