So we have a pretty good understanding of Newtonian level facts but are living in a relativistic universe that some can experience but don't yet completely understand...

To me, this is the most important line in not only the thread but the entire objective vs subjective wars that are fought on audio sites.

So many factor go into this. I remember reading an article by XLO's founder and he said that most people think differences can only be heard on uber high end systems. He claimed that he found that the inverse to be true. ?????

In my system the largest change comes from power cables, followed by IC's and finally speaker cables. As you see from my signature power and conditioning is by Shunyata while the remainder is Tara Labs. That said I've been considering trying some Shunyata IC's and speaker cables in the near future.

Whenever I read that changes are more easily heard on "uber high end systems" I think back on my old components and how I heard cable differences in all the iterations of my music system, from vintage Pioneer and JBL's to the Levinson and Vienna Acoustics I presently enjoy. I do think that my current electronics allow me to be pickier, due to them being less of a limiting factor in performance.

I'm not sure I've ever said to myself, at any point while auditioning a variety of cables, "these two cables sound the same."

During auditions I've done, I have thought to myself that certain cables are vastly overrated, although they had been raved about or highly touted.

I feel the opposite way...the more I've upgraded my system components (especially speakers), the more easily discernible changes in vibration control and cables have become. Ymmv of course.

I had transparent super ic's for quite a while because I tried some others and didn't hear much if any difference. After hearing ic comparisons with my Alexia's in place, I upgraded.

If it were true at all, obviously wires would be more impact the lesser the system.

Until a wire can pass a double blind level matched ABX, it's all a mute point to me.

Double blind, the biggest waste of mans time. How is that for hyperbole?

Also the word you were trying to use is moot as in a moot point. Then again that word means debatable or up for discussion or controversial.

This topic always seems funny to me. Hearing like other senses such as sight are personal and subjective.

If I ever saw a ghost, or UFO good luck convincing me otherwise.

I wonder if other fish believe the fish who are throw back into the water were really captured by "aliens" and released.
