Derogatory terms like "analog bigot", "digiphobe", "internet eggspurts" have nothing to do with electrical engineering.

What complete nonsense. What is a pole of articulation? Is that something like a phaser or a warp drive?

Here's another "Matrix" cable that should work as well. It's a little pricey for some of the objectivists here, but maybe they can borrow the money somehow.

Borrowing money to buy a cable? What a bizarre concept. I'm even past the days of borrowing money to buy a car.. I just wouldn't want such a cable - at all - regardless of its price.

At least you can get this from a vendor that adheres to Amazon's return policy.

If any subjectivist's ever take me up on my VQ HDMI cable challenge I'll just use Amazon or Best Buy for the cable. I'm not telling anyone to not try a cable (MIT's aren't cables). Just try them in a truly SBT manner.

There are plenty of AVS'ers that would most likely be local to help keep everything honest (Like the famous Chris Wiggles thread).

An audiophile likes to talk about how much they spent and how good it sounds.

A DIY'er likes to talk about how little they spent and how good it sounds.

You retire when you have so astoundingly made the point about 'expensive' boxes vs some monster cable. Where do you go from there? The question to ask is where did the subjectivist that proved couldn't he couldn't hear the difference go to?

No, it is about the right amount of money. But I wouldn't want a cable with a bloom box attached to it. If it were free, I wouldn't use it.

I think he got fed up and moved on. The next forum he made his home eventually wore him down too & he no longer posts there either.

Mourning the disappearing usage of the -ly suffix. Words being cut-off before they've had a chance to fully form, left incomplete, with their shoelaces untied and their zippers undone. If I quote your post (or post in your thread) without comment, please check your zipper.

In my younger days, I tucked quite a few dollar bills in a G-string to show my appreciation for those that could be "articulate" on a pole. (Today... they cal that dancing or perhaps... being an artist). biggrin.gif

Wire is passive, so the "wire is wire" quote from the superstar on this forum is probably accurate. But with MIT or Transparent due to the built-in filters, listening tests don't produce null results like the Fundamentalist Objectivists claim.

You have a talented proclivity for making things up!

The patent is clear what the box is for. As to listening tests, I have no idea. Could you cite some please, thanks.

Insulting terminology and childish name calling aside, the above is completely fictional. A cable with a filter built into it has a higher probability of adversely affecting sound quality and therefore making an audible difference. It all depends on the measurable properties of the filter box, which can potentially vary all over the map.
