Okay, when is this gonna' happen? It's apparent that there are groups here that (a) see and hear differences between audio and video cables, (b) groups that don't see differences and (c) groups that aren't sure if non-placebo differences exist and are looking for opinions on what to buy and how much to spend. In another post I outlined what appears to be a simple, no-fuss quasi-scientific way to conduct un-biased tests to see if there really are audible and visual differences. We just need a place to hold it, equipment to use, and some judges! I'd offer my setup - Sony KP-53HS10 HDTV, Sony NS300 interlaced DVD player, Denon AVR3300 receiver and Mirage OM series speakers, but some may argue that this stuff isn't high-end enough. Not to mention I doubt many members live within driving distance of the backwoods of Columbus, GA My method is this, place a group of "observers" in the "sweet area" of a high quality HT system. For the video portion, we need only place the source (DVD, etc.) behind the TV (I can't see using a projector unless it is mounted well behind the observers) where the "switcher" will change the cables per the que of a test "master". I'd keep it simple and leave out a video and audio switching device. The observers need only mark on a ballot IF the hear a difference in the random switching. Latter we can look to see if the observers saw differences when the same cable was simply unplugged and plugged back in. After it is determined that none, one, some or all of the observers were able to 100% correctly tell when the cables were switched, we can go to the next test - let those with 100% scores listen again and determine which is the "no-name" cable and which is the premium one. Surely this test would fail hard-line scientific scrutiny, but wouldn't it be interesting if ALL the observers saw a difference! And wouldn't it be interesting if the cable they preferred was the premium cable! Then again, my guess is none could be 100% in "guessing" which cable is which. Any guesses about my bias?
