Never underestimate the power of the placebo effect. Also, consider the fellow who forks out $2800 on cryogenically treated, irradiated, magnetically, north-south aligned, speaker cable floor lift supports, and convinces himself that it sounds so much better, when it really doesn't, because he simply cannot admit to himself, that he threw away all that money. #-o :roll: :cry:

For some reason I subscribed to Black Rhodium - they who believe in cryogenically treating their cables. This arrived in my email today - and apparently those unused RCA sockets are phuqin with the sound:

And even the humble mains cable needs upgrading at £160 a pop:

I've a cheaper solution to the RCA caps - buy more kit so you don't have any unused inputs - save a fortune! :-)

Wow, that's a huge drop in the +1 GHz range.
Impressive.

I think this is my favorite thread on VE.
