That made me write my experiences about them and the differences I have seen. Whats happened in that thread?
I am not naive or ignorant to reading and listening to the science behind there not being a difference between hdmi cables - and recently I would have loved to have used cheap cables and I tried them extensively but I just couldnt stand the image I was getting - nothing to do with any bias it just wasnt as good as what I was used to - even the mrs who couldnt care less commented completely unprovoked
No, not the line about your wife! :hand:
Anyway, this is the thread I meant: http://www.whathifi.com/forum/computer-based-media/cds-ripped-by-different-drives-sound-differentnearly-fell-for-it
just had a look at that and don't see the relevance - your saying digital is digital I get that, that's all I get. That's where you would argue that's all that matters
shame your so far away will have to wait for BB
The relevance is that the situations are analogous. On this thread you said you'd watched the video and you accepted what the hdmi chap said, and yet you still reported a perceived difference. With the cd drives, the major knew theoretically there was no difference and yet still reported a perceived difference. Seems analogous to me, save that he's able to make a check to prove to himself and us that he was wrong.
If my rejection of coming to yours seems a bit secretive, I'm in Manchester / Stockport while bb I believe is in South Yorkshire. I also have a baby who means weekends away are something of a luxury!
