So what? Because you are making false claims in a public forum dedicated to verifiable science, a forum that folks expect valid help from. Your unsupported and unverified claims could lead the uninformed astray, resulting in them wasting as much money on crap that makes no difference as you have.
Science is is the best epistemic framework to hang your intellectual hat on, unless you're more into truthiness than truth. Science is self correcting in light of new evidence, which neither you nor any other magic cable proponent have provided. Truthiness is fashionable these days, as are false equivalencies between matters of fact and opinion. Audio reproduction is not a matter of opinion, but an exercise in reductive science.
Being subject to a properly bias-controlled test of your precious cables would be a real eye opener for you. Until you do that, your claims of your cable's superiority are just an unsupported opinion.Edited by Wayne Highwood - 4/6/13 at 1:37pm
