Do Audiophile Cables Matter? Here's PROOF!


I seriously doubt that this will make any difference to the naysayers. But here it is.

I have wondered for a while now why a discussion on any form of digital media is peppered with rude, condescending comments. Subject is irrelevant.  Do people have nothing better to do? 
well said.... My best....

There are two separate issues here.

The video demonstrates clearly that cables differently constructed allow/don't allow stray in, acting/not acting as antenna.

What it doesn't demonstrate is how a poorly constructed cable acting as an antenna and transmitting an audio signal deleteriously affects that signal.

Cables do matter.. Only price does little on how good the cable is or how they perform.. People are fooled all the time thinking the more you spend the better it is (for the most part).. Its the design of the cable that matters most..  Start with Mogami cables and use them as a reference when trying to upgrade.. Check out their measurements..  Follow their path.. 
The featured test has nothing to do with audio. It measures a relative inductance of the tested cables while dealing with ~100Mhz frequency and ~500uV signal level. Please make a few tight coils (around a pencil?) on the first tested cable (near the receiver input) and you will see a significant drop of the signal level due to a high-frequency choke you just created.
My experience is clear: cables do matter but they also never act alone. Do you want to hear a cable difference? Use two clearly different sounding tracks (from two different recording studios) and two different audio cables to compare using a good-quality A/B switch. There is a good chance they will sound different, but not necessarily on both of those recordings.
