What chatGPT did is dropped the word Audiophile leaving the rest the same.
After all cables should NOT by ANY possible means bring ANY differences. The more neutral-the better.
how are you even sure that your preamp is producing bass frequencies? I have a spectrum analyzer hooked up in between the cables between the preamp and the amp. It gives me a visual to see if there is bass at that frequency even playing. It’s amazing how you remember your songs having a lot of bass, but they really don’t have very deep bass. Period at the worst case scenario when I want to test something, I download a Frequency like 100 Hz or 50 Hz and I just let it play. That tells you at what volume level you need to be before your speakers will even reproduce 50 Hz. Many speakers claim that they’ll go down to 22 Hz but you have to have the volume jacked up so high to hear it , it’s not even worth saying that it will reproduce the frequency . So, I highly recommend that you get a way to visually see what your preamp is trying to reproduce. If you don’t see the fire going up, then there’s not that frequency in the recording. Pretty simple when you think about it.
@zlone - How does ChatGPT test for the following aspects of a cable ?
There was no mention of
These are all very important aspects of cable design and performance
To explain further - take a look at this post and it will explain in more detail what goes into making state of the art cables
BTW: Many Cardas cable owners would have have an issue with ...
Cardas TOTL speaker cables have very high capacitance, but they perform very well
I could probably line up several very good sounding cables and one very bad sounding cable and they would all have similar measurements based on the ChatGPT process - so for me - I’ll take a pass on this particular process
I do agree with
Most peoples ears can tell them far more about a cable than any meter can
Granted, familiarising yourself with a good reference system is a good idea, but trying to compare that system to your own would be very difficult due to room anomolies, and the diferences in component selection
Here are a couple of brands of cable (amongst many) that are good "performers"

@vonhelmholtz The aliens have reported plenty of unintelligent life on Earth.
@raysmtb1 Doesn't the manufacturer of your pre-amp published frequency response figures? Do you think they're lying?
The factory figures for my Audio Research Ref 6 are 0.4Hz–200kHz, +0/–3dB at rated output. In case you think AR are lying, John Atkinson's results into 100 ohms are -0.05 dB (yes really) at 10Hz and -1.5dB at 200kHz. That's down just one-twentieth of a dB at 10Hz. Boom boom.
I think this will be all the bass you need.
@clearthinker I should’ve proofread what I wrote better. Sorry about that. What I meant was,” are you sure that the music that you were playing is even producing low frequencies” sometimes when I’m listening to music, I’ll be like’” where is the bass?’” and then I look at the spectrum analyzer and I realize that the music doesn’t have the low frequencies that I’ve been looking for. I hope that makes sense?
I posed the question. It gave a long response about there being no proof to date that aliens have visited our planet or made contact. However the very first sentence was sufficient I think, "There is currently no evidence to suggest that aliens have found intelligent life on Earth." 😀
