My real point was that he provided a thought out valid reason why different power and other cabling could affect the reproduced sound.  He hedged some, but he did give a technical explanation.  (He didn't go into power supply effects or anything else, but that wasn't the thread topic.)

Now, how would that fly on, say, another web site you might pick at random?

Never argue with a fool,
they will drag you down to their level,
then beat you with their experience!!!

So, one guy is the Zen priest of audio.

The other is merely an over-educated putz. We are all so glad that he is so much smarter than all the rest of us combined, and can make overpriced ICs, for a living.

To each his own, I guess.

But, their constant insult hurling is every bit as annoying as the name-dropping they accuse the other guy of doing.(Maybe he does. Maybe he just likes to talk.) The only difference is one side has a moderator as an active participant, and they get to hurl all the insults they want. While the other guy is constantly squelched. Not really a fair fight, is it?

"Hi Xxxxxx, you have been a bit quiet."

"I'm bit quiet and for several reasons:
- busy with other things (vintage camera repair for example)
- too much noise in this thread
- not interested in NDFL anymore
- the habit of the moderators who delete my posts without any notice, while leaving real BS like this one untouched.
But if you are interested in NDFL like circuits, please look at ...."

I had a hard time reconciling some of these:

And...

I suppose it's no more confusing than the foodie stuff, Japanese painting, and the ever popular wine discussions. 

Or, this:

Why is working for a company that tries very hard to provide what the market wants and is willing to pay a premium for - like Mil spec parts, for example - just fine?  But, working for a home audio company that tries very hard to provide what the market wants and is willing to pay for is evil and stupid? 

Too many questions...

Gee, wonder what Waly did.................

Probably complain about "Hey, where did my last post go?"

At least things are plodding along, in their usual fashion.

Meanwhile, over at Greaser's Palace..............the trolls are back!

Ah, what else would we do for entertainment...................

WHAT??? You mean we had to watch that crap, 24/7, just to keep up with the latest hot action? Bollocks.

Well, maybe they need to retire it.

Meanwhile........................Greaser's Palace is still entertaining the troll. Too bad he isn't the least bit amusing.

OK...  Google has a backup, then.

It's amazing that guys like The Devil and Charlie get moderated, yet they didn't cause any of the problems.
