Having read more of those reports/articles, I am not entirely convinced that the author is entirely unbiased in his views. However, regarding cables being cables, it is quite obvious that various cable designs abound, but that is not to say that they are suitable for audio use, even if the marketing blurb that precedes them says that they are designed specifically for it and that they excel. Sometimes nothing could be further from the truth.

Regarding the author, its a bit of a tough one that. If you're going to write a book on the subject, then you really either need to grab the bull by the horns so to speak, and sit in one camp or the other. If you were to sit on the fence, it would bring into question everything else you speak of. Thats not to say theres any harm with sitting on the fence in general.And I completely agree, some incredibly overpriced cables are not really adequate for use in hifi.

The thing is, it should be a neutral party conducting tests if possible. I would question the neutrality of the author/s or them being in the sceptic camp as some of the comments have been sweeping generalisations and repeat misinformation as found in any hifi forum.

The article in question has been put together along with many other articles to form an entire book. Parts 1 - 6 are just small parts of said book. The sceptic part (I assume you mean when I referred to them as sceptics?) was done by 3 entirely different people who put a white paper together about it. The author drew from that paper (Amongst many others)
