    Tony here is another piece of the pie. We had ordered cables for LSAF (not mentioning the manufacterer tilll the show) one of which is a USB. They are sending an additional USB that has not been released to public but due to the metallurgy it has tested a lower noise floor.

    Your arguments are valid for simple computer data transfer, however....we don't listen to data on a screen. Simply stating once a cable meets spec....or does it's job, is the be all end all in what it sounds like simply means you have not listened to any other better cables.

    Exactly Tony. transferring and viewing computer data as 1's and 0's is "easier" for a cable than for the same cable to transmit music as 1's and 0's.

    As proof, I will offer up this: A couple years ago I bought some Belden solid copper core Cat 5e ethernet cable along with RJ45 ends to install onto the ends. I also bought some RJ45 crimpers costing $75.00 (NOT cheapies). I built the Ethernet cable and hooked it up to my router to transmit my online service to my compueter (I now use wireless). The cable worked fine. tranmitted data with no hiccups.

    I then hooked the same DIY ethernet cable up to my modified Denon DVD-1920 DVD/SACD player, which I installed an RJ45 output jack into and the other end hooked up to my (at the time newly built) DAC, also with an RJ45 input jack to transmit thepure DSD signalbetween the two.

    The result was that while the DIY ethernet cable worked between the my router and computer without hiccups, te same cable did not work between my modified DVD-1920 and DIY DAC. The data digital signal was not passed accurately enough between the Denon player and DAC (music). The digital data signal was passed between the router and computer with "seemingly" no problems.

    So, if they are just 1's and 0's and "just a digital data signal" why would one digital data signal work (between the router and computer, but not work between the Denon DVD-1920 and my DIY DAC?

    Answer: there's a lot more going on with 1's and 0's than what HabiMonk and other scoffers are admitting to and/or realise.

    Edit: I should point out that the same RJ45 jacks I initially installed in the Denon DVD-1920 and the DIY DAC are the same ones I used with a different ethernet cable and worked perfectly. Meaning the RJ45 jacks on the player/DAC were NOT the problem. It was the ethernet cable that was the problem and went away after switching to this cable: http://www.acoustic-revive.com/engli...lan_cable.html

    Although I now use a modified Denon DVD-5910 as my DSD output player to my DAC.

    Data is data. The question is the quality of the D/A. No one has been able to explain how a CAT5 cable or SATA or IEEE 1394a/b or USB makes the difference.

    Digital transfer is high frequency, data rate, ECC protocols on the line at the PHY layer. They are built to be very noise immune.

    Fortunately I am going to be able to offer to setup a well structured A/B SBT at any event with 100% confidence of zero participation.

    This is a clear example of you having no technical understanding about how Ethernet or these other digital systems work.

    "I know how computers work. This make me an audio expert."

    Sounds just as asinine when you condense it into a much more succinct form.

    Eck...Why do experience members troll so hard on this forum?You people act like 3 years old...Read my original post,nothing troll about it.It's funny,not like I even said anyone was wrong.As for tonyb,thanks for the pov,at least some maturity was shown regarding the discussion.Only forum in which everyone joins in and trolls just because people don't agree with a certain view.

    Bingo....his assertions work well for computers....not so much for sound. Which is my assertion....they are 2 different animals. I will also go as far to say if none of this made an audible difference, cable makers would be out of business pronto. I guess then millions of people would simply be experiencing the placebo effect.

    We have had these discussions soo many times, it gets old after the first few posts because you know where it's going. Whats the point anymore ? Either try some different stuff and speak from experience, or stay out of cable threads.

    I agree with you all these accounts but meeting spec with Digital coax cables means it's a true 75 ohm properly terminated cable that has the ability to pass the entire digital transfer at given length of given cable. Once this is achieved , you can't improve on it at all. This given cable has the ability to send the entire digital signal in it's original form from point source to the DAC. So at this point you can have better metal, better quality dielectric's , better anything and get no improvement. The reason is that the job is done , this is the goal now you can look down the chain to find other places of loss or interference that these locations with better materials etc will make a difference.
    I talked to many engineers over the years about digital cables and you can't improve on them once the goal is achieved.

    Now on another note , measurements of speaker response is a completely different topic. You can have 5 speakers all measure exactly the same but all sound completely different. What has been learned recently is the method's of measuring speaker response has flaws and isn't an exact science because if 5 different speakers measure exactly the same , they should by test results perform exactly the same.
    There is a dude from Germany who figured this out and is now helping some of the leading speaker manufactures in the world. His name is Wolfgang something I forget his last name now but he developed software and measuring equipment that really goes beyond what speaker companies have done in the past. I know 4 companies are already using these methods and have found so many flaws in design and response.

    I got an idea, lets talk about spec or certification, what is it? Then from there we can talk about cable that meets these industry standards. We could go down the road about T568a standard vs T568b Standard. Which one is better and why?
    Then after we set that goal , we can talk about 2 cable types, one shielded one unshielded, whats the benefit of shielding? Then going even deeper when using Network standard cables like a certified Cat6 cable for Audio/ Video transfer like HDMI , using Balun devices that rely on a properly built Cable, lets talk about that for a minute. Then within that conversation why 2 certified cables used in this fashion one works without flaw and the other fails but both pass spec.
    Just so you know I have been building Cat 5 , Cat 5e , Cat 6 and now Cat 7 cables for over 15 years. Most guys in this forum have not. It would be nice if you would educate them instead of insulting them. If you know something they or even I do not , please share.
    I fully believe in Spec as I have been told over and over again about it in the industry from some of the very top Engineers. But there are some cases where spec isn't the be all end all and NO ONE can answer that question, I know I have asked as I'm pretty sick of Wire debates.

    I don't know why one poster was using cat5 for digital audio, i have never done that,( I dont have the balun) i use HDMI or Optical but here is my experience, not theory per-say.
    For field service i carry a very long (20 meter i think) cheap HDMI cable for testing set ups where i suspected a problem in the device under test, usually a TV, if it worked with that long cable then the HDMI section was working. on sets that had problems i would get audible audio drop outs, a pixilated picture or in most cases just nothing. I know it's not exact but it worked most of the time.

    For shorter cables i never noticed a difference in picture or audio quality, it was the length of the cable when i started noticing problems and high quality cables matter more at that point. It's been my experience that cheaper HDMI/OPTICAL cables work fine at short distances, loss in the cable will make it's self known at longer distance.
    for better built cables the only problem i have seen is if the cable is too stiff or heavy at the connectors to cause damage like ripping off the hdmi jack and that is very hard to replace and of course the real cheap ones fall apart from the package lol.
    Ethernet is a different type of differential twisted pair style and i an not covering that type, just HDMI and OPTICAL.
    I know jitter (from another poster) can be a problem from the master clock in cd/dvd players but for the life of me i cant tell a difference from a better one to a cheap one, i know jitter is important for the DAC
    my final thoughts is i cant tell the difference from my system if it's a cheap cable or a better one, including my service cable(when it's not in my car)

    side question, can any one suggest a balun for cat5e to send what would be from an hdmi feed over 100 feet of cable? or an HDMI that long that does not break my bank? lol

    Depends on many factors, your definition of a "better cable" for one, your system being revealing enough and your ears healthy enough to hear those differences.

    That said, if you can't hear the differences, don't sweat it and be happy with what you have.

    True, some good info Kurt from BJC provided. Even I learned a thing or 2. But....your glaring omission is that Kurt himself noted his limitations on his own hearing, and claimed he knew of no sound differences in metallurgy. That could explain a few things, no ?

    You are the one omitting part of what he said:

    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 equipment whatsoever. Psychoacoustics is a strange field. It has always to be remembered that listening is a highly subjective experience, while sound reproduction happens in a purely objective realm. To validate what we experience subjectively we've got to be able to reproduce it experimentally under controlled conditions, and then comes the problem of working out just what the phenomenon is that we've isolated.
    And:

    I do not know of any evidence that metallurgy results in different sounds.
    And you sure didn't provide any.

    I didn't omit that part on purpose...because I agree with the man there. He makes a valid observation and one I have experienced myself. But that doesn't define the whole subject on it's own.

    Unless I read that wrong or out of context, but seriously Kurt ? C'mon man, tell me I read that wrong.

    Your equating 2 different things chief.

    One...."It's unbelievable how different a passage can sound on two separate listenings, with no change in equipment whatsoever."

    Which I agree with....

    TWO...."I do not know of any evidence that metallurgy results in different sounds."

    Which I don't agree with. One has zero to do with the other.

    So you do have evidence that metallurgy results in different sounds? I mean, you disagreed and "called him out".

    Yes, I did. He is a cable maker, correct ? It would make sense for him to hear for himself if he made exact copies of IC'S each with a single proprietary metal....silver-copper-gold alloy- steel- brass- tin. The proof lies in your ears, granted with some degree of subjectivity. If you can't discern the sound between those metals, I would suggest your hearing is compromised to a substantial degree.

    Simple request is it not ? Especially for someone who makes cables for a living ? Who knows, he may very well do just that and come back and say he could not tell any differences. Which wouldn't change my opinion one iota, and may reaffirm his. So frickin' what. Hearing is a subjective subject, to make cast in stone comments is simply silly.

    Just as a FYI for our friend William, if you read any of my posts you'll notice a recurring theme. Experiment...try different things....judge with your ears...and if you like the cables your using, even if coat hangers....cool rock on. Not everyone can discern the differences for whatever reason but as long as your happy, who am I to tell you your not.

    Another FYI William, I respect Kurt, actually like the guy too. He's very informative, makes his point, and is respectful to the other members here. Regardless of whether I personally agree with the man on particular points, I still respect his opinions. Plus the man makes a good product, won't take that away from him.

    That said, his product is based on a certain price point aimed at a certain segment of the audio community. Just like POLK speakers are. NO ?? If you never heard another speaker, then Polk is your end game. Works for cables too. It makes no sense for Kurt, a maker of a fine cable at a certain price point to come here and admit he digs MIT cables. That would be taking money out of his pocket.

    My main thing is and always will be to venture out and explore different things, biases aside, charts and graphs and engineering aside, and simply listen. The hows and whys those changes occur are irrelevant....if you simply listen without biases.

    I will continue to suggest Kurts cables to anyone looking for a solid well built good sounding cable that won't break the wallet. I believe in his product, but it is not the only product out there.

    Damn...these cable threads piss me off. lol

    It's good to see that this argument is still "Here's detailed technical reasons why the 1s and 0s can't sound sweeter given two cables that pass them intact" versus "I can't explain scientifically why it's a thing, but it totally is!"

    Then after we set that goal , we can talk about 2 cable types, one shielded one unshielded, whats the benefit of shielding? Then going even deeper when using Network standard cables like a certified Cat6 cable for Audio/ Video transfer like HDMI , using Balun devices that rely on a properly built Cable, lets talk about that for a minute. Then within that conversation why 2 certified cables used in this fashion one works without flaw and the other fails but both pass spec.
    Just so you know I have been building Cat 5 , Cat 5e , Cat 6 and now Cat 7 cables for over 15 years. Most guys in this forum have not. It would be nice if you would educate them instead of insulting them. If you know something they or even I do not , please share.
    I fully believe in Spec as I have been told over and over again about it in the industry from some of the very top Engineers. But there are some cases where spec isn't the be all end all and NO ONE can answer that question, I know I have asked as I'm pretty sick of Wire debates.

    There is only a physical pin out difference of A vs B. Want a cross over cable (handy about 15 years ago when nothing was MDI)? Wire one side A and one side B. Performance is exactly the same.

    I started installing Ethernet when it was RG59 with vampire taps. Appletalk also. DECnet, configured Banyan Vines etc... We are talking late 80's here.

    Shielding is obvious: When you are potentially running in areas prone to very strong EMI/RFI that can swamp the transceivers ability to CMNR. In bank installations shielded cable was a requirement for security reasons. Did you also know that DEC, Intel, 3com all had transceivers that were good for 380 feet vs the 328ft spec?

    I just wired an 8 screen cinema with dual shielded CAT 6 runs. Really slick. The movies arrive on a secure hard drive cage. They even have 'an app for that' (iPhone and Android) for monitoring the PJ's.

    I would say in your Balun situation you had a cable that didn't meet spec (even though believe it did). I've never had a cable that met spec not work. Not once. I have an extender at home for HDMI. We have them at the hospital in all the public areas that have a TV for visitors and ER wait room. I think it's 18 displays in all. Can't wait for HDBaseT.

    As an aside to all of this: What do you think of Meridian Audio?
