    I like it. It's nicely flexible, more attractive due to the rounded jacket than some, and the combined gauge size of 11 is plenty large enough for most purposes. It's not suitable for in-wall...

    Yes, but here the main reason to distrust Chinese manufacture is fire safety; it's hard to make a functioning power cord that's really bad, apart from just specifying an inadequate gauge. The spec...

    I do spend a fair bit of time listening. But I'm also acutely aware of my limitations in that area. It's unbelievable how different a passage can sound on two separate listenings, with no change in...

    Yes. What's harder to say is exactly what sort of other-than-normal conditions are likely, and what the answer then is. Electronics can be vexing and there can be puzzling phenomena.

    As a general proposition, I can't see how a power cord is likely to have an effect upon sound. But there are exceptions to general propositions, of course. The main thing that comes to mind would...

    The specs are indeed important, to those users who understand them and rely on them. So data center installers, for example, are much likelier to buy patch cords from known quality suppliers because...

    I'd unplug everything, all at the same time. Bear in mind that the ground prong isn't going to be switched either in your power strip or in your devices, so as long as there is some path to ground...

    Hm. I'd figure a ground loop, which you could break up with an isolation transformer (or two if stereo), but for the unplug-the-computer bit. When you unplugged the computer, did you also unplug...

    It seems to me -- and I should warn that I'm not entirely sure of this, so could be wrong -- that up through USB 2.0 there was no compliance testing requirement for USB devices, cables, etc. ...

    Yeah, that's not a term you hear everywhere. It's also referred to as a crimp connector more broadly, but usually when we say "crimp" we're thinking of discrete pin-and-sleeve, three-piece crimp...

    Termination can cause failures, certainly -- but at Cat 5e if your connectors are close to decent, it's hard to make a really bad termination. It looks as though the terminations on these failing...

    I haven't yet taken the time to study the rate of actual packet loss and its relation to the cable quality--the problem, of course, is that when you do that, you get answers which are specific to the...
