There's such a group? Consisting of the vast majority of people involved with audio outside of those marketing of vastly overpriced wire?
You don't have any proof that they don't work.
You have no proof they do.
The Anti-high end cable people aren't hurting the high end cable sales.
I believe that common sense has had an impact but hard to overcome poor judgement of those taken in by the marketing.
If you can't afford them, that's one thing, but to say there is no difference is utter nonsense. It's been proven by audio engineers in high end studios, high end audio equipment mfg for years..
I can afford them but there's no reason to afford them, they're simply rubbish. Please present any valid proof of your claim that anything has been proven about this product's claimed performance by anyone reasonably respected in the field of engineering or audio.
I haven't heard from a single person that's actually compared them to a garden variety cable that hasn't heard a noticeable difference. That's what makes the Anti-High end cable crowd sound pathetic.
I haven't heard from a single person other than you about this flavor of snake oil and I can't see that you've applied any methodology to your comparison other than your self-appointed golden ears. Those who shill these products are the pathetic ones (while guys like Brisson laugh all the way to the bank as did his previous employer, Mr Lee at Monster).
You guys act like you have trained ears, yet you can't hear differences in high end cables vs low end cables? I was just choosing one brand that made a huge difference to me 20 years ago that convinced me that cables make a difference. I didn't say you have to buy them, I'm just saying try them before you say high end cables don't make a difference.
You don't seem to have any training in this regard let alone the ability to determine a reasonable method of comparison.
Is it possible for you to actually have SOME experience in audio products? Otherwise it makes you sound like someone that just listens to low end products bought at Best Buy or Sears thinking it's as good as high end.
And you have some experience? More than mine? Doubt it but then I'm not professing any particular level of experience of such either and it sure as heck doesn't sound like you have any more than myself....you really should re-read the babble you've been spouting.
Interestingly, I know the guy who has the last three patents listed on the page of patents on the MIT site, he's an art/marketing guy by and large (currently product manager for WTB, a mountain bike accessories company). Will have to look him up soon....
