and vice versa.

AFAIK, Ted Denney is not an engineer or scientist, which means he is not hampered by the fact there is not much wiggle-room in 'designing' a cable from an electrical standpoint (i.e. resistance is set by the wire gauge, capacitance and inductance basically trade-off depending how close the conductors are so you can minimize one at the expense of the other). Gene is an engineer so he is constrained by his knowledge of what is possible electrically and so is less inclined to hear differences, or even bother to listen. Is Denney a savant, alchemist or someone who wanted to make money in audio and picked the highest margin segment?

The challenge is interesting. I cannot imagine that Synergistic cables are going to measure better than what Gene uses for his reference. And Ted could simply ship one to him for measurement. Maybe he is hoping Gene will hear his reference system and have a damascene conversion!
