    Obviously April 1 fun. I enjoyed it. Kudos for not explaining at the end that it was a joke. LOL

    I really hope it was a 1 April thing, but if people will buy bags of special rocks, etc maybe it's for real

    It was posted on March 31st. Hopefully it was an April Fools video?

    I've seen some bollocks in my time, but the stuff on plants is up there with the best/worst of it!

    The idea that leaves store bass is utter tripe..... everyone knows that plants filter and store frequencies from 1400-1422 Hz, but only if the sun is coming through the window and you've put the cat out.

    Dressed how I like them...
    I scorched the oak splitters on this set. The nanners are rhodium plated BFA-Z types made by CMC, about $23 for 10 pair. They have a solid pin down the middle so you can't snap them off, and they have tight contact in both 4mm and 4.1mm posts. Amphenol Speakons with 'glands' for the amp end.

    Here you go Bill, its almost like he is speaking directly to you.

    "Steve Guttenberg (The Audiophiliac) welcomes cable deniers, high-end doubters, blind test advocates"



    And...

    "Steve Guttenberg (The Audiophiliac): Audiophile cables? Snake oil? Give it a rest!"

    Here is a video discussing the pseudopsychoacoustic effects of houseplants in the perceptions of ersatz expert audiophile listeners during sighted listening sessions. This is very closely related to audible differences among choices in esoteric cables and connectors.



    And on the broader subject of snake oil...

    True enough. But I can get those at McMaster-Carr, so they'll make everything sound industrial ;)

    Without getting silly about things, hospital grade power cable end connector(s)/plug(s) and wall receptacle(s)/outlet(s) from a reputable manufacturer (eg. Hubbell, Leviton) are not expensive, and are less likely to disconnect if accidently bumped by something.

    Don't forget, you'll need a ridiculously expensive outlet, too.

    I'm guessing there's a profit motive.
