Thanks for the summary!

Paper only shows time delay differences at 1Mhz+, also reflections and noise at 1MHz+ If there is time delay at 200kHz it will show up as phase and gain deviation.
There isn't any time delay or phase diffrence at 20-20kHz.
Thats... not very promising...

Quelle surprise.

Most of the high end interconnects are RCA garbage. I mean why would anyone who cares about audio quality use a crippled audio system with cheap RCA connections when balanced pro level XLR is widely available. Cheap RCA consumer grade connections with $500 special cables…lol - yeah like I need F1 tires on a tractor…
Of course there is no difference in sound quality between hifi gear that uses balanced XLR and that which uses RCA phonos. Not because of that, anyway.

Who cares? I don't even bother in discussing cables anymore, been there, done that.
If someone is gullible enough to buy this nonsense, its their loss.

Hey, pair it with 2 of these beauties and you'll have a free audiophool, sorry, audiophile free card.

FYI - scientific study of audible differences in interconnect cables:


Excerpts from the 'Summary and Conclusions':

"......Within the audio community at large, there tends to be a misunderstanding and underestimation of the
spectacular capabilities and extraordinary sensitivity of human hearing: For example, the ear can detect a
cochlear basilar-membrane amplitude of ∼1 pm [37–39] and has a temporal resolution in the microseconds that
has no direct connection with the maximum audible frequency.....".

"....The present work found clear systematic differences in the electrical performance of interconnect
cables of different grades....".

".....Furthermore, there are clear
time-domain performance differences between the various interconnects tested.....".

Uh oh , we already have a tread ( or several) on exactly this BS story :)

And no fancy cables still does not make any significant difference and never had .

Surprise scetist gets it all wrong outside his own field of expertise ;) it’s so typical male .

Because your a prominent figure and know some stuff really really well does not mean you know everything

Obviously there are no audible differences between proper manufactured cables. I am really tired of reading the same" audiophile" BS over and over again.

Amir tested a whole bunch of different cables and, of course, every time with the same outcome: no audible differences.

"time Domain differences" OMG!

Really?

I'd love to see how Amir's test compares with this one.

ugh, not this fu*ing Kunchur clown again.

j_j took his shite apart ages ago on Hydrogenaudio.
