I was reading Cryoparts website, specifically the part entitled "Why Cryo?" In it, they say, "Deep cryogenic treatment works at the atomic level; research indicates that as the temperature decreases the atomic bonds start to weaken and the crystal structure of Copper reverts to its original state and removes these stresses." This is an obvious and basic misunderstanding of what temperature is and what the "crystal structures" are. Temperature doesn't affect anything at the "atomic level," it only affects things at the molecular scale (unless you were talking about plasma, but we aren't talking about that, and that's in the millions of degrees usually). Also, molecules form crystal structures/lattices, not atoms. I think you should know that just from high-school physics. I'm a physics major at college though and have done plasma research before, so this really jumped out at me. This all isn't to say that cryo doesn't work (though I doubt it does anything for cables), but its clear that... well, in cryoparts own words, "Many who sell cryo-treated audio parts do not have an intimate knowledge of the DCT process." Yes, yes indeed.
