OK, I get the idea of lifting the +5V lead. Done that myself.

Lifting the ground..............I know better.

Ironically, this gets back to the ol' "So, just how big is that loop?" issue.

But, it sounds better!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Because he made it all by his lonesome, and did not support a snake oil capitalist who does the exact same thing. Oh, the irony.................

Get this one, written by the same dork I am poking a sharp stick at, in another thread................

My plan is as follows. I live in Toronto and have hosted DIY meets at my business location. From that group there is a moderator of this site who appears to have credibility with the hard core designers at DIYAUDIO based on his work with shunt regs. I have invited him over to my home before to audition my system, and has offered to bring a scope and check out what is going on. He seemed impressed by the results I have achieved and fwiw I believe he has a well tuned ear. I'll see if he is interested in coming and at least be the listener in the A B test of a high quality commercial cable vs the one I claim bests it. Perhaps he can then suggest running a .WAV track with a clean test signal to see what is happening with the soup mix of impedance mismatches.

Blah, blah, blah..................

Lemme guess............we are talking about The Machinist. Should stick to what he is good at, which is obviously machining. His idea of "research" is to try ideas Phred and I have talked about, and claim as "his" research.

Of course, when Phred and I tried it, we claimed nothing, except we probably very heavily borrowed from The Devil. And did not try to hide/deny it.

OK, they moved past talking about making your own USB cable, and are back on whether or not USB cables make a difference. And getting all mixed up over clocks and jitter and PLLs and external clocks (they really mean external clock control, like some guy in Ohio does), and end up looking really stupid.

You would think they might quit while they are ahead.

No.................more entertaining they go on! Please, more!
