    Our testimonies aren't good enough for you, an engineer's testimony isn't good enough for you, what are you waiting for... something to fall out of the sky?

    How about hitting your local hi end store and demo some cables there?

    You do have a good sense of humor. You will need it after reading any COMPLETE DK post. Don't you think DK's posts could use a little editing.

    Tell the truth do you really read DK's complete post?

    Got to lower that contact resistance.

    I have nothing but the highest respect for DK. I've met him and spoke with him for quite a while. He is a very intelligent and level headed man.

    I do agree with Face however. There are numbers of us that have attested to ICs & speaker wire making a difference and Ray has gone to great length and testing to prove his points and yes I read his threads thoroughly.

    BTW I was going to change the wire within my 1.2 TLs but Jesse advised me against it and I trust his ears and judgement.

    I don't know why you get so aggrevated when science is questioned.

    Thanks for the compliment though.

    FACE

    Are you an engineer? If not, just ask any EE about the crap DK is posting about his fuse post and they will tell it contradicts the basic laws of electricity.

    I wonder where DK got a EE? Has he published any papers in a EE Journal?

    Please show me these. DK is pulling your leg with EE crap.

    I tried many cables and couldn't hear a difference. No one has ever demomnstrated that they can hear a differnce with a DB test that was done correctly.

    Study Part 8B. Right.

    DK's posts regarding STUDIES IN fuses is not science.

    You can't change the wire in the voice coil of a speaker.

    As a material sciencist I could BS people here with bogus data also but I don't.

    If you are not in the science field, people in science field can easily can lie to you. They can take advantage of you by using terminolgy. The langauge of EE science is all about math. DK uses NO math. Wonder why?

    Don't let people BS you. Ask questions.

    He has a PHd and teaches at Southern University Electrical Engineering.

    So what? That doesn't mean he isn't pulling your leg or is off his meds.

    Peter, I've had enough of you crapping in threads around here. Just because you can't hear a difference doesn't mean others can't, so STFU already.

    Wonder if he teaches this crap to his students? Would be interesting to see what his fellow professors think of his "studies".

    And some of us are tired of all your magical claims and beliefs being posted as fact. So why don't you shut up already?

    I also have had enough of this bad fake science. Showing that basic EE contradicts DK's post is not crapping on his post.

    I base my posts on EE science. To say a fuse improves the noise in the wall outlet makes no sense to my EE knowledge.

    Can you explain the fuse STUDY or do you just have faith?

    I never said that just because I can't hear a differnce doesn't mean there isn't one. Face asked me to test cables and I did and couldn't hear a differnce. I am also color blind but I also believe that people can see colors.

    Do you know why I believe that people can see colors and I can't. They were tested and proved it.

    So you can hear the difference, good for you, prove it before you try to sell me stuff that contradicts just basic not fancy EE science.

    DK is pulling your leg.

    You got that right. I don't believe in testimonies and the tooth fairy.

    Sorry, but why would you believe that crap?

    I base my posts on EE science.
    That right there is at least half of your problem. The other half is your closed minded attitude. Folks use to think the world was flat at one time and apparently some still do.

    You know F1 that is another bit of crap that has been floating around for many years. The Greeks proved the earth was round over 2000 years ago. In fact they calculated the diameter to within a few %. They used simple but clever methods. That myth like cables continues to live and I'll never undertsan why.

    Or maybe it's time for you to visit a Psychiatrist. They can prescribe meds that may help you with hearing and seeing things that just aren't there.

    As a matter of fact, a majority of my schooling is in psychology, the rest is in electronics.

    Straight talk. Please explain with your electronic back ground how a fuse can reduce noise in the wall outlet.

    Darqueknight,

    have you tried something like snake oil, ultravivid liquid, ultrabit platinum cd cleaners?

    Can I make a request? DK- With no music or any other outside noise, stand between your coffee table and the couch and clap your hands, once, as hard as you can. Describe in detail- the same kind of detail that you use for the other posts.

    Next repeat this while standing directly in front of each speaker. Also, if you don't mind, post a pic of the wall to the left as you're facing the TV.

    Thanks!

    I have not tried any of the cd cleaner/enhancers.

    I did notice that CD's re-recorded on music CD-R's sounded better than the commercial recording. I discussed it in this thread: Better Sound With Music CD-R's

    I might be more inclined to assist you with your inquiry if you tell me why I should do this.

    I assume this has something to do with reverb time...but I'm not sure.

    A buddy of mine has a surprisingly similar room- it's always hard to put into words what you hear in a room, but I think that'd help me know exactly what you're describing in your posts. You've got a ton of detail... so the experiment might help me understand what you're saying.
