Re: [ARSCLIST] Aren't recordings original sources?

Tom, I assume it's foil connected to the chassis neutral connection. I've
never taken one apart but it's a standard electrical supply house part. For
all I know a change in capacitance is what causes the audible changes. I've
never known anybody who wasn't highly skeptical about this, especially folks
who've paid big bucks for a power cord!

It would cost a lot of money to research and prove anything not to mention
the fact that it is a moving target because of variations in building
wiring. Folks will probably just need to keep on arguing until somebody's
got a spare $100,000 they are willing to waste on trying to make a point.

Bob, are you talking about a power cord with a foil shield like a standard
audio cable? I thought UL 
or some other standards body wants a solid green-wire, same gauge as the two
conductors. Is the 
shield a separate wire? Is it connected to the greenwire ground? What are
you sheilding, fuzz from 
coming off the power conductors or fuzz from coming in from the outside?
