To me, "Audibility *is* the story"
Apparently it's not the story he likes to tell.
Your statement is not supported by truth.
I have explained the consequences in terms of hum and noise infiltration, oscillation, as well as unexplained audibility changes.
As well as how expectation bias can compromise "audibility".
And, how specific system responses to cordage cannot be predetermined given the lack of EMC in the designs.
edit: my "novella's" as you are fond of calling them, are actually quite compact, and easily understood by degreed electrical engineers of reasonable competence. Given the nature of audiences in forums such as this, I try to keep it as non technical as possible without losing content.

But, hey, comments like that are at least worth a good laugh.
Yah, there is that. Truly ridiculous statements don't help. I really enjoy the quantum dots and green felt tip pen..
I also laugh at some of the objectivist statements as well, since I understand the engineering..you know, miles and miles of wire, that kind of thing.
ps....you know, I do recall one guy who used a low impedance speaker cable on a subwoofer, but used a hot amplifier (high speed) for the sub, biamp system. Since the sub unloaded well below the amplifier's unity gain frequency, the amplifier was left with only the cable capacitance, I thing it was 300 to 500 pf per foot. As a consequence, the sub sounded like crap. Not to say the claim was legitimate, but I find that it doesn't pay to blindly dismiss the statements of others (well, most others). In that particular case, the amps was oscillating above 20Khz.
