Home Speaker Asylum

General speaker questions for audio and home theater.

RE: Resistance

I would say there's a decent gray area between "cable advocates" and "cable naysayers."

I'm actually not sure what a "cable naysayer" is. :) Any objectivist worth his salt would not disagree that cables could have audible effects based on source impedance, load impedance, cable LCR and parasitic characteristics, etc, etc. However, any "cable advocate" that thinks there's some type of magic at work here is deluded.

The most irritating thing involved in the cable topic is the condescending attitude directed at "cable naysayers" by "cable advocates." :) "Open-minded" and "closed-minded" are polarizing labels that most audiophiles don't deserve to have applied to them.
