I fail to see what photon behavior has to do with an audio signal.

From the first link:
"As it turns out, the Schrodinger equation does predict what will happen. The wave will become entangled in the waves of the quantum objects comprising the measuring device. It will become entangled with the environment, just as pilot-wave predicted, but unlike pilot-wave, Everett dispenses with the particle."
My question is if electricity is actually a wave function then how might our measuring devices be somewhat deficient in assessing the electrical properties of audio components, wires, cabling, etc. and are these devices actually measuring everything that might impinge on "sound."
Does this mean: there are actually some, on this site, willing to discuss how Quantum Mechanics might actually influence our listening?
I'll repost some snippets, from previous threads, for the interested, while cooling the flames, I typically direct at the Denyin'tologists.
In that last paragraph; my point is that no one knows exactly what/how to measure what may be occurring with the highly complex musical signals (lots of frequencies and changes in frequency, constant voltage/signal level variations, PLUS), though: they BELIEVE they can, based on the sciences of the 1800s.
Some excerpts, from my post to a recent thread (>1000 posts), that became so contentious, it was deleted.
I left that thread, a couple pages prior to deletion, so: not my (direct) fault.
Are the advocates for the primacy of audio measurements for things like cables and wires actually measuring runs of music streaking through the conductors, or are they measuring simple signals?
I have seen graphs on this site purporting to show mirror symmetry between music signals from cheap audio cables versus more expensive ones, but zooming in on the graph actually shows no such symmetry. This brings to mind a big question for me - how granular are these measurements?
At least you ask questions...
Most people dont ask any and they hate those who ask some...Beware.. 😊
Audio measurements are useful to couple the gear with other components in a synergetic compatible way... Only narrow mind with no concrete training in acoustic could think that quantitative electrical measurements will indicate what they will hear as not only "qualities" of an audio system but "qualities" of the musical acoustic experience ...
The software engineering of files is not acoustic...
The recorded acoustic of a piece of live music is made of trade-off that will be TRANSLATED in your room by other acoustical trade-off of your own making... The audio gear CONVEY the signals more or less transparently thats all...
Acoustic matter more to understand audio and his link to musical experience than the electrical design of the gear...
