    Money can't buy you love, but it can buy you shut-the-fuck-up.
    Sometimes love is shutting the fuck up.

    But not in this case.

    Anyway, despite the snark, obfuscation, trolling and professional hackery, this has been an education in:

    1. who's a douche on the Internet
    2. art and science
    3. semantics
    4. butthurt
    5. what's really important (that would be English beer and North Carolina BBQ)

    You had weeks to challenge my post when it was up at gearslutz... you never bothered to. Why don't you get Jules to put threads back up and you can go back and try again.

    I repeat.

    Take your bogus scientific bullshit elsewhere as you are not welcome to pollute this place any longer with your nonsense.

    Yeah, I know - I'm not absolutely certain what the fallout will be with this one, but Ethan's started in "debating" in his trademarked inimitable style and Fletcher's not known as being a shrinking violet, so I thought it was worth reporting.

    As to the actual question, I'm kinda on the fence - cables can make a difference in some circumstances but on the other hand there's so much snake-oil audiophoolery about "premium" cables......

    Fletcher is surely not always right but in his defense those times when he is wrong he usually mans up pronto and in public... cannot say the same for the other party.





    Oh... and I never had a problem sending someone to Mercenary because Fletcher did good business... like him or dislike him that's a fact.

    Knowing Ethan Winer as I do now I would tell inquisitive folks to avoid him like a six inch clit on a blind date.

    Well, now I've looked.

    I think they are both wrong but you know, I've said what I said over there and that will be it.

    Well, I went over there to find that the trains have in fact collided, the debris is raining down all over the place, there's been a huge steam explosion, and not a single person has risen to the point of an actual, measurable, testable, comment, rather they've continued to rage back and forth in their postmortem forms after having been "scalded to death by the steam" in the wreck of the old 97.

    What we need in that thread is an exorcist.

    Note: This is not directed particularly at Ethan, either.

    Well I'll tell you this for nothing.

    I ain't ripping my walls open to replace the belden multicore inside.

    I don't suppose too many of those muppets have considered that particular run of cable and only thought of their 10 feet between the wall plate and their Rode microphone collection.

    Don't be worried about your anosognosia.

    Being a professional is not about how good you are at your best,
    but how good you are at your worst.

    Creating complex solutions is easy.

    I use a wireless setup.
    Back in my old studio, I had three runs of guttering, each filled with mercury and I would connect one end to a pre and the other end to the mic. It was moist pro but not... it gave the sound a very fluid quality.
