*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

Swing and a total miss @teo_audio. Once again, you are attempting to deflect from your own inadequacies and trying to make this about me, and not your inability to support the rather outlandish statements you have made. As a commercial interest, which you are, it is not only morally and ethically defunct to make claims that cannot be supported there are other implications. I suggest you should threaten me less, and think more about what you are posting and whether you can factually support what you claim.

You have the floor here teo_audio. Instead of your ill-attempt to attack me, I suggest your concentrate more on justifying what you, as a commercial interest, wrote. 1) I would start with that 1 pico-second claim. That would be the best place to start. I would suggest using evidence from actual experts in the field, not some random conjecture on the web. 2) Then I would think about your claims about digitization in the MHZ claim. 3) Then I would try to justify your claim that 100% -- 100% of our hearing is based purely on the transient edge. Then 4th, why not the one that is easy for you, show us how liquid metals defy inductance measurements. That should be easy since that is your expertise. If you want, you can justify some of those other liquid metal claims. Perhaps cite some scientific papers like I did??

p.s. I actually posted my bio here. Feel free to search for it. I do not now, nor have I ever received a dime from direct sales of home audio equipment unless you count selling my used gear :-) It would be best to find another tree to bark up.  I have no advantage, hidden or otherwise, except knowledge. I do not put words in your mouth.  You have the ability to control your own actions including what you post on these forums. Govern yourself accordingly.  If you cannot justify what you wrote, that does not reflect on me, that reflects on you. Act appropriately.
Skin effect in audio cables is nothing to concern yourself about it's not like we're talking about miles of wire. I don't see any need for a liquid cable either. What, fill a tube with mercury? This is goofy as well, all that's needed for audio frequency within home audio is a good grade copper wire with appropriate insulation.  
Let's keep snake oil (skin effect) and other BS out of this thread. Tube Amp. because of their nature of low or very low DF, the cable has no significance. This is not the spot (under Tubes light) to look for the missing coin.
"Until you show your face, you are morally and ethically defunct..."


How does one show face in this thread? Even if audio2design tried, what if he showed up with a mask? Would it make him even more moral and ethical than just showing bare face?

Do we really want to see each other’s face anyway?
As long as your cables character impedance matches the load impedance of the speaker then what's to argue about. The speaker then won't reject the signal giving a more efficient connectivity and a more accurate sound. Simples!
