Power cords blind test 2004-12-12 01:10:36 In "Secrets of Home Theatre and High Fidelity", Jason Victor Serinus has published a blind test between high-end audiophile power cable and standard power cable.http://www.hometheaterhifi.com/volume_11_4...ds-12-2004.htmlIt is interesting to note that though all participants failed the test, all of them thought that they could have heard the difference. On a scale from 1 to 5, half of them claimed that they can hear the sound of a power cable with an estimation of their ability equal or superior to 3. Some of them define themselves as "hardcore audiophiles". Some of them regularly attend acoustic concerts, thus are used to natural sound. Some of them play a music instrument. A funny comment from one of them : "SPL should have been matched. In the most basic sense the test was successful, but the difference in volume made the cable identifiable". He didn't perform better than the others.
