If isn't the proof than cryo is better...
Ask wonderwoman.




"steve hostin"? You mean Steve Austin, the Six Million Dollar Man?

I wonder if Wolverine's adamantium skeleton is cryo-treated?

just trying to expose the subterfuge spewage from the marketing pink boys



Yeah!

Another Goodie Goodie out to save the consumer.

What would our world be like without people who know everything??

Thanks for saving the children.

standing offer to all !

you send me two or more of something (cables, tubes, connectors...)

i'll cryo one of the two (or more) any of the ways you want
(slow cool down and warm up) (fast cool down and slow warm up)
(let it swim in the N2 for as long as you want, a week or more...)

and i'll ship them back to you, and you see if you can hear the difference.

No charge... I'll even pay for shipping back (usa only)

Do you still believe in the Easter Bunny?
Santa, his Elves and Flying Reindeer?
The Tooth Fairy?
Snipe Hunting?
Underpants Gnomes?
Power Cables make a difference?
X-Ray glasses?
All men are created equal?
The Shah sleeps in Lee Harvey's grave?

If yes to any of the above then NO this thread is no laughing matter!

Know what I mean?

In all seriousness, I don't understand how it COULDN'T change the sound of a cable. The molecular structure was altered. Why wouldn't electrons flowing along a different molecular structure change the way something sounds? It almost certainly alters the way something conducts (albeit, even if minutely) how can it NOT change the SQ?

I'm not a food connoisseur or anything, but I know if you were to freeze food, and then slowly bring it back to it's original state, it changes the way it tastes. Either on a molecular level, or some other level, it tastes different. I don't know why, and don't really care to know why, I just know I can taste the difference, so why wouldn't the same apply to something you hear if the same process is applied???

cryogenically treat metal and it seperatesslowly ata molecular level

post treatment the metal bonds more closely together than before

It could very well make a molecular difference that simply isn't audible (thus not changing the sound of the cable). It's easy to get caught up in changes that very well may not be appreciable in the realm of audio. Surely putting Brilliant Pebbles all over the room would ostensibly would reduce resonance from audio waves. That may or may not actually do anything to change the way a rig sounds - but simply changing a physical property won't necessarily change the sound of the system.

BTW the food analogy doesn't work because evaporation is occuring. That's why food that's not properly defrosted will taste bad - the water evaporates as it melts and the food becomes dry and nasty (or freezerburn may happen, but that's a separate issue altogether from freezing and defrosting). In fact, proper defrosting (in the fridge overnight in a closed container) will yield food that tastes just fine. However, in the case of cables, there's nothing actually leaving the cable like there is when you defrost food. So the analogy doesn't apply directly.
