I'd love to see Mythbusters do an audio myths episode. Hard to get across on TV, though.

Plus, fairly boring to watch.

There are many things worth spending time on that just wouldn't make great television.

Are you kidding, just try to imagine what they would do to try to have the wires make a difference! I know, put them in liquid nitrogen so they can become superconductors and then at just the right time, smack! and the wires have indeed made a difference, they truly disappeared from the soundstage.

Ok, don't just hit the wires, try to blow them up with a super mega-watt burst into them!

As we all know you can't tell the difference between monster and lamp cord.

If i recall, JohnK ACTUALLY uses lamp cord.

Check out the bs graph from the Pear website:

I too used lamp cord up till I purchased a set of Axiom cables. It allways worked great for me.
