With every post

you demonstrate more lack of understanding and dig yourself deeper with more untruths.

Does everyone have multi-radial ?

That question is irrelevant when discussing its performance envelope.

Then the article's conclusion (which you avoided): "frequency response varies drastically across the record".

Let's make $hit up, part deux! The words "varies" and "drastically" are nowhere to be found in Roger's unsubstantiated opinion piece. Most browsers have a built in search which can be quickly accessed using the CTRL F accelerator keys. Try it! Better still, try it the next time you get the impulse to post the next outright lie.

As for Sanders, his interconnect-test was not bogus, only you say it is.

And the reason I say that is that I have measured what happens when you attempt such as setup. As opposed to uninformed speculation on your part. The concept of a comparison is to be able to evaluate one DUT vs another independently and determine if either results in a difference. When you use a simple capacitance meter, what you find is that attaching two interconnects via a Y-adapter as the test requires sums the values of both cables as measured at the end of either one. Result? You end up "comparing" cables A+B at one end and, not surprisingly cables A+B at the other end. This - no comparison at all!

Here's cable A measuring 544 pF:

Here's cable B measuring 50 pF:

Here's cable B with the Y-adapter attached now at 88 pF:

Now what happens when you attach cable A to the other end of the Y-adapter, while continuing to measure the leads attached to cable B? You get 597 pF!

Since electrical interaction is beyond your level of understanding, think of comparing glasses of wine or soft drinks. This test is equivalent to pouring equal amounts of Wine A and Wine B in each of the two cups for evaluation. Why would anyone expect a perceived difference? His smug conclusion:

"After doing this test, you will discover that all the hype surrounding interconnects is just that. The fact is that all well-designed interconnects sound identical. Only poorly designed interconnects will reveal differences in sound."

only demonstrates ignorance, not insight.

And just listen to 192kbs and then CD. NO DIFFERENCE in sound quality.

I have several albums on LP, CD and 24/96 (or better) and have compared them extensively. While it may be true that you and Roger don't hear any difference, I'm along with countless others including many professionals who do.

Is vinyl perfect? No, it isn't. I find that digital offers better and more extended bass response vs Redbook. On the other hand, it excels at the top where the 1980 CD resolution fails.

Maybe one of these days, you'll begin to actually comprehend the technologies in question, what is truly written about them and avoid fabricating outright lies as to what folks are alleged to have said. Such pathological behavior is not missed by others here.
