    "Most people think of an audio system as an electrical device. It would be more accurate to call it a magnetic device. Electricity powers the components, but it's magnetism that makes the music. It is a magnetic force that moves your speakers, causing them to vibrate and create sound. "

    What if you happen to use electrostatic speakers and a non-electrodynamic cartridge (such as: piezoelectric; or strain gauge; photoelectric, or variable capacitance device)?

    I went to their site fully expecting to see a full suite of measurements showing how their cable reduces EMI and RFI compared to a standard one. Imagine my surprise when (cont. p94)

    LOL, almost as daft as believing aliens are flying through our atmosphere. Each to their own in the absence of total proof. I'm guessing they may well have sold some already.
