*WHITE PAPER* The Sound of Music - How & Why the Speaker Cable Matters


I’ve spent a sizeable amount of the last year putting together this white paper: The Sound of Music and Error in Your Speaker Cables

Yes, I’ve done it for all the naysayers but mainly for all the cable advocates that know how you connect your separates determines the level of accuracy you can part from your system.

I’ve often theorized what is happening but now, here is some proof of what we are indeed hearing in speaker cables caused by the mismatch between the characteristic impedance of the speaker cable and the loudspeaker impedance.

I’ve included the circuit so you can build and test this out for yourselves.

Let the fun begin

It always comes down to anecdotal evidence, lack of any real meaningful experience and the stories people tell themselves in order to justify their world view.  My journey has been about actually buying and living with a vast array of equipment and cables over the decades, listening with an inquisitive and open mind.  I didn’t need to justify my purchases due to lack of funds or desire to explore.  At the end of the day however, whatever gets you through the night!  Enjoy

None of the stuff that is teached at technical institutes are based on  meaningful experience. With such attitude, we would still be thinking like Newton, missing Einstein's theory of relativity and more. 
meaningful experience can get you to be a good home cook. If you want to step up, you need to go to a culinary school (as I did). You may see what is the difference between meaningful experience and knowladge.

However, you are keeping naging me for nothing. Unless you try my way and come with critics, or bring some of yours to the table, we are going nowhere. If all you got is meaningful experience, than you practically have nothing.
Probably worth pointing out at this point that Einstein developed ALL his theories in his head. It was decades if not many decades before they could be proven correct. Einstein is the direct opposite of your position which is to ignore actual science and try to believe it does not exist. I have clearly pointed out to you there is more than just big gauge and not taking into account inductance will have an actual measured and perceived impact on high frequencies. Bringing up Einstein does not change that but does prove my point. You don't get to just ignore science.   Newton's laws are still exceedingly accurate for most things.

"The only way I know to determine how something sounds is to hook it up and listen."

What happened to your deciding on a component sound by watching and listening to it on youtube?

Did you finally realize it is not the way you can do it?

Kudos, you can still learn. Until now I was, as you told me recently,...hopeless.
