That's why it is good to read the broad body of reviews (tough these days to find the text between the pictures in many cases). In the "old" days (2 years ago), we had some participants who were technologically knowledgeable and interested and included "impedance" in the discussion. In a multi-driver, the frequency response is dependent on output impedance of a device (cable is part of it). My co-blogger has created a spreadsheet that calculates these frequency response variations. Single dynamic drivers are usually not affected by this. And you surely know all this. Today we are concerned with unboxing, something that lingers for a few minutes. Suum cuique tribuere... That sounds like anti-medicine/anti-vaccing. 1. Nobody listens to graphs and nobody claims to entirely rely on graphs: there is no "either or" but always an "and"...both work well together. Most if not all people who produce reliable graphs are well-seasoned listeners. 2. Physics works...measurements and graphs are part of it. If somebody claims is does not, they should send their thread comments hand written on paper through a horseman to us...as computers rely on the same physics as audio equipment. 3. There is no evidence that copper is superior over other metals, sound wise. How does copper know what we want to hear? It is the cable's impedance one has to watch...and not the braiding either...or its packaging. 4. Experienced people get scared by certain graphs...I certainly do when seeing a monstrous 2-4 kHz peak. Very useful early warning before spending $$$!
