I have just been banished from Computer Audiophile. Is that a good thing. Are the people here nice?

prufrock, I share your frustrations and instead of generating more endless debate on the merry-go-round I would like to submit that all our efforts be channelled together. I spent quite some time trying to find ‘evidence’ either way in the cable debate and came up with zero. There does not seem to be any ABX testing out there that debunks the various myths surrounding ‘enhanced’ cables and interconnects. Of course, when you look at the number of products and all of the advertising blurb it would be an overwhelming task. There is however references and links to the Russ Andrews Accessories false advertising claim in the UK. Which is a lonely win! There are older links around to the James Randi challenge, but in mho there needs to be a concerted effort to challenge the manufacturers/sellers of products to conduct credible ABX testing to prove their claims. Surely there are enough smart people here in HA to author an irresistible open challenge to manufacturers, maybe in the same way as the claims are themselves scripted to avoid the courts. This could be, with the necessary permissions displayed prominently on the HA site along with the number of days that the challenges have been ignored. The incentive for any prospective organization taking up the challenge of course is that should any claims be proven most if not all of us would have to rethink our positions.

....nor will there ever be as that is not the purpose of an ABX test.
