$10,000 Ethernet cables

Archimago? I loved his USB test. And, in looking for it, I see he has posted some tests on network cables within the past few days.

It's 4.30am... I'll have to leave that until tomorrow.

Especialy funny is the 4500 miles test: Intercontinental streaming


I am sure they used audiophile grade cables at the bottom of the sea. Can't be any other explanation, uh?

Obviously the high pressure compresses the cable, optimizing the structure for better transmission, duh

Actually I believe that is correct (excepting vacuum).


Can you explain? How does the insulation surrounding a wire slow down the electrical current in the wires.


Look up velocity factor. The signal goes slower depending on the insulation. They're not lying as we used to time align analog video signals in the old days and the velocity factor was part of it.

I really wish that I could afford those cables.  Not that I would buy them 
In theory, there is no difference between theory and practice. In practice there is.

Although this article was really about Audioquest's Diamond HDMI cable, I thought AQ founder William Low's response on page 2 was worth a read.

For your convenience, I've edited Low's response down a bit:
Quote
So, I’m essentially agreeing ... to not pay more for an HDMI cable because one expects a better picture. However ... it’s an area worth investigating for those so inclined.
...
While I can describe some of the ways in which a wire cable or a fiber-optic cable introduces jitter, the “argument” is not won in the intellectual domain.
...
...death taxes and deception will always be with us.


Why is this sort of stuff allowed in the USA? I got to thinking about it and came up with the following:
  • AQ presumably creates real jobs and pays real taxes
  • How can we claim that anyone's been victimized if buyers are happy else they can simply get a refund?
  • Basic rights of a USA citizen are "Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness": No one said that the Happiness aspect had to make any sense.

If they really believe what they advertise about their network cables, then it is obvious that they actually know little or nothing about networks and network cables. Seems to me that that makes buying a network cable from them a rather silly thing to do.

I'd love to see the results of CAT-compliance testing on these audiophile cables


Nevermind that Ethernet signal is digitally modulated, it's also analog rated for 100MHz for dirt-cheap Cat5e which is only like ~2500 times of the 44.1KHz sampling rate.
