I had the opposite problem, namely needing a low-L cable to connect an
NMR gradient driver to a gradient coil. The coil was around 10 uH, and
the existing 10-meter cable more than doubled that. My solution was to
get a piece of #8 silver-plated fine-strand MIL wire, the kind with
very thin teflon insulation, and stick it inside a tubular braid and
then make an outer jacket with shrink tubing. That essentially forms a
very low impedance coax. Lots of C, small L.

About the only thing that speaker wire can do is add too much
resistance or too much inductance. It can't add too much C because Zo
will most always be way above 8 ohms. It's possible for a long run to
have enough L and skin loss to drop a dB or two at 20 KHz, but if
anybody thinks they can hear that they are delusional.

12 gauge Romex makes fine speaker wire.

You're talking about people who tell themselves that they can
hear 0.001% THD and the difference between 200kHz and 300kHz
roll-offs. :)

Play some Mozart woodwind ensemble that includes a French horn and I'm
sure I can detect >= 0.003%... been there, done that, but then I was
the clarinetist in the group ;-)

  Bullshit.  You are at least an order of magnitude off.

  How 'bout you retards put up a list of gear that even meets your
claimed specs.  0.001% OR 0.003%.  It is a very short list, and an even
shorter list of those that actually meet their claims when all is told
(or listened to).

 Most, if not nearly all don't even come close.

 Delusional twits distorting the minds of all that see their utter
horseshit.

You mean two or three.
But he did say >=0.003%, not HOW MUCH greater than! :-) :-)

Forget the equipment (lot's of electronics can actually do better than that
these days), name one recording that can meet that spec?
Or even a speaker for that matter.

I've built amplifiers that tested at 0.003% (hp Audio Distortion
Analyzer), which is why I used that number.  I _could_ hear that
distortion.  However that _was_ >20 years ago ;-)

Playing in an orchestra makes you hyper sensitive to distortion,
because you know what it _should_ sound like.

 What utter horseshit.

 I blame operator error.  There is no way that the equipment was that far
off cal.

  This Thompson guy is an idiot.  He (you, idiot) probably idealized the
test, and didn't even have audio drivers in the loop.

Sure, as long as you didn't have to prove it!
In any case you certainly didn't prove any difference you *possibly could
hear* had anything to do with that infitesimal distortion level (and that
was only THD anyway)

And still no mention of what you used for source material that you think had
less than 0.003% distortion!


Quoted text here. Click to load it

Irrelevant other than the fact you can now claim that proof is no longer
possible! :-)

You do realise what a wanker this claim is making you look right?

Are you so naive to think I give a fuck what you think ?:-)

Or anyone else, for that matter.

Nope, that much has been obvious all along! But what IS you motive for

  ABSOLUTELY HILARIOUS!

 A delusional audio twit.

 My hearing scores in the Navy were pretty good.  I think I can even hear
well right up to 20kHz, if not a bit higher.

  I still do not make ludicrous claims about discerning between point
values in a set of a thousand points.

 To claim to be able to tell the difference between a "3" (0.oo3) and a
"1" (o.oo1)  in a set of 1000 is pretty much impossible.

Not "pretty much", *no one* has ever reliably done it in a properly
conducted double blind test.
Only wankers who don't even know how to conduct proper tests delude
themselves that they can.

I doubt it. When was the Navy thing ? How old are you now ?

  Yes. Both "delusional", and "deluded" (Quaaludes) comes to mind. :-)

'Ludes were great drugs. It was like the best drunk you ever had, but
no hangover. In fact, you felt great the next day, having slept so

So does 14ga or 16ga zip cord.  Goes around the terminals nicely too.

 Regular old #10 or #12 Ga El Cheapo speaker wire from the swap meet
works better, and it is marked, so you do not have to go hunting for
little ridges on the wire sheathing.

  A pair of #12 TFE SPC wires twisted together loosely from work works
pretty damned good too.  Better, in fact.

 Don't worry, K-Tard.  I am addressing the thread, not you, so your
stupidity remains intact.
