That's a really good reading, KikeG. Thanks.

I'm wondering if one day some audio oriented "James Randi" will offer million dollars to anyone able to proof that he/she hears "the difference" smile.gif

Also while visiting the site, be sure to check out Failed projects page. Great laugh smile.gif I expecially love the German Audio Police ("Zo, Hans, the treble is veiled, und dere is some smearing of zer transients?") laugh.gif

There was (and I guess still is) a pool at the rec.audio.opinion and rec.audio.high-end newsgroups that offered a reward of some thousand $$$ to anyone that could hear a difference in speaker cables under controlled conditions, given that the cables don't color the sound on purpose (IIRC the requirement was that the freq. response on terminals of the cable was flat within 0.1 dB from 20 Hz to 20 KHz, that I think any decent cable will meet under a regular speaker).

Despite a lot on discussion over this, nobody has still taken the challenge AFAIK.
