I decided to do a short parody video of how an audiophile (played by me) destroyed the scientific arguments that cables don't matter, by an ASR member (played by me).

A little bored the last couple of days and reading the Morrow speaker cable review thread sparked my creative juices (or lack thereof).

What an a-hole :rolleyes: No other way to describe this farce: "5-1". In all rationality it was "0-1" given the only real criterion was the blind test.

Oops. Does this prove that irony is inversely proportional to latitude?

Opps. :oops: So what I missed was SimpleTheater's allusion to his "creative juices". Perhaps I wouldn't have if there weren't people who actually reason that way.

I actually appreciated your first comment. That's what I want people to say if they don't know it's a parody.

I saw another video by SimpleTheater:

This video claims that robins build a nest on top of one outdoor speaker, as opposed to another, because that particular speaker is wired using "first run copper" cables.
When I first watched that video several months ago, I though the guy was absolutely insane.
Obviously I didn't get the irony, until i found this thread.

I'm so glad it was a piss-take. My faith in humanity is restored!

I first saw the video with the influence of cablelength and the math for it. From my point of view a litte unfair. But ok, nobody is perfect.

Hello,

Sadly, I would bet real money there are those who would "buy into" this video. It was posted on the internet, it must be true. Critical thinking is NOT being taught in our schools.

The only conceivable way this kind of double blind speaker cable test could conceivably be valid let alone statistically significant would be if all the electronics were plugged in with PS Audio power cables.
