It's no wonder companies like that stay in business, look at what they charge to do the calibration LOL

I had the same thing in my email today too... Strange thing is I believe it to a certain extent.Years ago I remember swapping cables when I had a tube preamp, and a SS amp... There was a night, and day difference but I believe it had to do with the input and output impedance of the equipment. I say this because when I got my Classe Audio DR6 preamp, and DR10 amps it made absolutely no difference what cables I used. The Dr6 had an output impedance of less than 1 ohm. I do find it hard to believe that with today's SS equipment though that there would be any difference at all with a cable unless it was made poorly.

LOL at the header "A Happy Upgrade Story From Transparent", well of course they're happy! They got paid $700 to do nothing.

Ugh those companies make me sick.

"Certification" is different than "calibration".

If you want your cables "Certified", send them to me and I'll do it for $29.99 plus shipping. I will be glad to certify that they are indeed cables.

How one "Calibrates" cables is another matter. It implies that the characteristics of the cable can be changed by some method, thus allowing the cables to be adjusted to match a known standard.

That one pegs my "" meter.
