i thought it was you in the video...By accident ! Whatever were you looking for that magically brought this up?
Why don't you just stop playing around with the continual cable thread games and just admit you believe the more you spend the better the sound and be done with it.
even if you buy them 2nd hand or at a quarter of the rrp ?I'm sorry to not watch the video but if you get proportionately priced cables, they should be excellent for sound quality. Now if you got a 10k system, should you buy £500 cables? Nah. Don't believe in that. I think £100 cables, should be the most you ever need even if you got a £50k system.
russ andrews had a go !Can you provide independent verifiable proof that Audioholicsis wrong, or is it just your opinion, as this will determine the context of you statement. (Fact or belief)
russ andrews had a written research paper (or something like that) that was available to download some years back on this subject.Actually 25- 30 seconds in he states we have been saying this for 25 years that we don't have any proof for the cable claims. The rest of the video basically doesn't actually offer any either.
It is staggering what these people claim.
Well he is showing a speaker cable but then goes on to talk about mains cables and power supplies, so that’s about as clear as mud.
would that be the "silencer" mains filter / plug in thing he sells ?Alas, wheeling out RA is never going to feel like supporting an argument - I don't think I know anyone who thinks his gear is anything other than a rip-off even if they believe it works!
Many years ago there was a guy here who had a friend who worked in electronics. He took apart some gizmo that RA supplied and the difference between component cost and retail price was a factor of hundreds.
would that be the "silencer" mains filter he sells ?
once again i tried one and didn't notice a damn thing !The “silencer” consists of a standard project box with a fancy sticker, 4 caps, varistor and diode and 4 resistors, on a very simple PCB you could just as easily build on strip board.
Probably about £6 or 7 worth of parts in there, not quite a factor of hundreds but still a fair chunk of change for a few cheap off the shelf components.
I should add I have bought some of his stuff used to save the bother of building it myself but retail prices are absurd.
the russ andrew mains cables (powerkords) are just kimber speaker cable (4tc, 8tc and 12tc) with an earth wire down the centre, hence, might be why he's holding that.Well he is showing a speaker cable but then goes on to talk about mains cables and power supplies, so that’s about as clear as mud.
If you do suffer from RFI then a ferrite bead added to the cable will negate it with no need to buy a fancy cable. (Although any decently built amp will block it anyway)
Can’t find the white papers that he talked about, but from memory I believe (But I may be wrong) they could not be (Or were not) independently verified.
And why not? Harrods have customers that would think nothing of paying 7 grand for a box of chocolates.harrods sell hifi kit and their top of the range system uses kimber and russ andrew cables and power blocks - all on display and ready to be demonstrated.
Just watch the GR research video. If that isn't enough for YOU, then nothing will change your mind.Can you provide independent verifiable proof that Audioholicsis wrong, or is it just your opinion, as this will determine the context of you statement. (Fact or belief)
