Yes, we all know of $1000 a meter and up "high end" cables. My point
remains... If you can't clearly A/B the difference in a double blind test
(you are blind and you are not the one doing the source switching) then
there IS NO DIFFERENCE.

I'm amazed with how many audiophiles refuse to do such tests when it comes
to the more voodoo, black magic enhancements such as cables, power
filtering, CD stabilizer rings, etc.

I am sure many audiophiles envy you....
$100/meter is not high-end, by the way.

Anyone who starts to buy into this stuff needs to do an honest blindfolded
A/B test with outside control of the sources to reliably demonstrate that
they can pick out the differences.

As an example, in the case of cables, I have not yet met anyone who could
blindfolded tell the difference between decent quality cables that had good
connectors (available for $10) and $100 a meter cables.

*Especially* those CD stabilizer rings... I get *much* better results
with a green Marks-A-Lot. (but not a Sharpie, and don't even try the
store-brand green markers)

(Need I even say? B-) )
