Yes well this all sounds very reasonable and believable. Who knows there may even be a bit of truth buried in there somewhere. But from my 30 years listening and comparing and reading everything I’ve been able to get my hands on though I’d have to say BS.
If it was this simple there wouldn’t be so many crap cables out there. Companies like MIT, or at least the people who sell them, would be telling you all about it. For 2 reasons: one, because it gives them a really strong selling point, and two, it would dramatically increase customer satisfaction and repeat business and cut returns and deserters to other brands. So however good it sounds its utter BS.
The list of reasons/theories/engineering/electrical/physical designs that have been touted over the years to make one thing or another sound good is so long and so discredited that long ago- twenty years ago at least- I quit even paying attention. NOT ONE of them has ever held up. Whatever has at one point in time seemed to matter has ALWAYS in the fullness of time proven to be BS. Hard to appreciate if you haven’t been following this for 30 years like I have. But its true.
Far from what you think audiozen what your experience demonstrates to me, yet again, is there’s expensive stuff out there with people paying big money for what not only does not sound better than crap, but actually sounds worse than crap. Crap being the one you think sounds good.
Because what you will find, there really are cables out there that are so freakishly good they defy any reasonable explanation. Get some Synergistic Research Element CTS, but not unless and until you are ready to have your world rocked. Then when you’ve been amazed by them for a few weeks send their Active Shielding power supplies off to Michael Spallone to have their diodes and caps upgraded. Be even more amazed at how such a simple inexpensive tweak just dropped the noise floor, threw the sound stage deeper and wider, corrected tonal and timbral imbalances you thought were already gone, and blew micro and macro dynamics out the roof.
Then try and tell yourself this is all because of, what did you say? Oh yeah, capacitance.
Yeah. Right. Dream on.
