    I have done single blind testing of interconnect cables at my place and the blind listeners were successful 100% in telling A) if a swap had been done or not (confirming they sound different) and B) zeroing in on a preferred cable. We had 4 different cables in the test. The most expensive did not win...in fact it was one of the cheapest that won.

    The guys on that forum are the "amps and sources largely sound the same" crowd as well. Oh well, I guess it saves them money...

    Nordost v Blue Jeans cable?
    How about Levis blue jeans v Lee Cooper blue jeans?
    Now THIS would be a thread worth following
    Those of us who have opinions on Nordost know what we think

    Oh, just that Nordost always seems to be the uber priced alternative that the skeptics pick, and I'm pretty sure I'd pick 99 cents/m bell wire in a blind a/b
    PCs seems to remain the biggest divide in the skeptics argument w the rest of us

    That's a great line!
