Welcome to the Path of Least Resistance!
« on: 8 Sep 2009, 02:44 am »
This forum is for the discussion of all things cables. Interconnects, power cord, speaker cable anything and everything that connects our components from point A to point B.

Now on to rules:
no advertising
no fighting, civil discourse only
NO DBT DEBATE this does not exclude the use of dbt for listening comparison, but any "debate" will automatically be trashed.
And last but not least standard AC rules apply as always.

Be respectful, be observant, be skeptical, and be kind.

Enjoy!!!

I am incredibly disappointed that you did not choose your tagline as,

Resistance is Futile!

Pez, Guys,

I guess my previous comment was futile.... :roll:
Tagline, schmagline, from the Recent Posts Page, where I, and I assume others, interface to AC, nowhere does a 'Path of Least Resistance' post or circle indicator say that tagline -
Interconnects, power cord, speaker cable -- anything and everything that connects our components from point A to point B.

If the intent is to keep the riff-raff out, and have only the AC savvy post, good job!

There is always a trade off between being clever and being understandable....

Not quite as clever, but far more understandable, and far less obtuse (unless that is your intent) might be -
Cables - the Path of Least Resistance

FWIW,
Paul

If newbs have trouble understanding our forums it has always been a policy to move their thread to the proper location. They'll figure it out. Variety is the society of life my friend. ;)

Pez,
Please take this as constructive criticism.  I'm very glad that AC now has a Cable Circle!  But....I am a moderator of a fairly new Circle (HiRez Music) and it is not the easiest thing to promote/market, so I can't imagine the steep incline you've created by not mentioning the product category in the Circle name.  I stumbled across it, and I'm on the damn Forum all the time!!  I would agree with Paul and others that something like "Cables - The Path of Least Resistance" would get you far fewer headaches..."oh, i thought this was for DIY parts (resistors)"  or "I thought this was a non-audio Zen/yoga kind of thing".  Take it from me, a newbie moderator, that the dust that is stirred up when you move posts and whole threads is as if you called their mother out!

I'm with Ted. Why make the link obtuse? And why create more work by moving posts and threads?

Already the first controversy.    :(

My friend Vinny says it is critical that an interconnect be equal to or greater than the distance between the two components it connects.

Some sort of golden rule :cry:

A good rule it is. Unless, of course, you don't want the IC to quite reach its intended connection point. Plus, anymore, interconnect stretchers are darned pricey!  :lol:

Have fun,

Pez,

Good job getting this thread developed.  Now that I have my system stable for a while (I hope my wife reads this) I am going to spend time learning about cables.  This is a great thread to ask and listen.  Thanks.

Does the path of least resistance mean higher capacitance?  :roll:

I have always used coaxial-type interconnects. How would you compare twisted pair to coaxial?

Probably best to start a thread.  No one will see it in this "welcome' thread.
