Stereophile, no more bench tests????!!!!

No, if you can do that then you’re in the fourth half....or fifth maybe.

So there were no measurements of cables previously, as you said, but the need was there and so Stereophile, and presumably the other mags, threw that need out the window and that kind of paved the way for $5000 power conditioners and $50,000 power...
