The last reference under the Roger Russell is good for a laugh:
I'd forgotten that video,, it's perfect, hitting all the details of the subjectives agenda very smoothly. ;)

I had no idea these cables would all measure so differently. I expected it to be close. But it’s practically apples and oranges out there.

The coat hanger actually went past the bottom of the graph so whatever story there is on how it sounds is quite suspect.
That's why I always use oxygen free coat hangers. And when using 12 gauge, I go with double barrel for stereo, gives that extra kick. Make sure your speakers are pretty much bullet proof though.
