[quote user="Anton90125"] Where did you read this "fact". Did Stereophile admit to it? I can not find anything on the Stereophile site.[/quote]
It's all over the net and of course it isn't on the stereophile site.
It's also not listed on Snopes as an urban legend. Why do you not believe it?
[quote user="Fingers Lee"]That is outside the realms of science so it is almost a kind of religious faith. If interconnects really sounded different they would measure differently (they don't)[/quote]
If there is a phenomenon that lies outside theory then it may never be measured because we don't know what to look for.
The fact that some people hear it and others don't shows that the variability is probably in the listener rather than the equipment being listened to so we know exactly what to do to prove or disprove it. We can do double blind tests with those with the golden ears and rigorous controls in place to see if it's a purely psychological effect in humans.The question is who on earth will have the necessary will and money to do it.
