Hi All,

I ran into a Spanish forum some time ago, and found an explanation why cables can not alter sound...

The reasoning behind it is that an electrical signal travels with (let`s say, on average), 80% of the speed of light through a conductor. That means that, unless we're talking about really long cables, a waveform in the audible bandwidth, can not do a "full stroke" within the length of a normal sized interlink or a loudspeaker cable, and therefore can not be altered.

Maybe a rather far-fetched explanation, but it somehow seems feasible to me... Any thoughts?

Thanks,
Peter
