    Does rfi makes a system sound brighter?

    Sure , happy to do that. I will go to PM for details.

    I guess you are right and I now see the flaw in my suggestion.

    Rather than this theoretical posturing, why not just listen to what happens if an RF noise filtering device is inserted in the digital feed to the DAC (any DAC, any make). Sure I suggest using a HF ferrited cable as the filtering device but I doubt that anyone needs any convincing that is indeed an RF filtering device. There will be two possibilities, either it makes an obvious difference or it doesn't. No need for blind man's bluff or any of that stuff. Those that like to measure can then scratch their heads and redouble their search for the RF that they had missed in their earlier searches and measurements.

    The interesting thing is that the dCs clock is not in the signal path and there is only (as far as I know) the clock signal going down that BNC cable and into the DAC. The customer had tried various other BNC cables with no real effect and that is why he was so surprised at what the WAVE Storm was doing. An excellent result.

    WAVE cables and the dCs clock. A visitor to the WAVE room at Cranage asked if he could borrow a single WAVE cable to try with his dCs clock. I sent him the Stream and Storm cables to try and he has just telephoned and was very excited to tell me the huge improvement he could hear. Details he said he had never heard before on tracks, the music is less fatiguing and for the first time he can turn the volume up without it ever feeling loud. He has just bought the STORM cable and is sending the STREAM cable back.

    I don't think you had your tongue in cheek filter set to a high enough setting before you answered Nigel's post.

    If you are referring to rabski's anecdote of changing his mains cable to screened and noticing a reduction in the noise floor of his system, I do not think that he was suggesting that RFI was the culpret. He mentioned that a buzz had been reduced which seems more like mains frequency. And I do not understand the logic your comment "A mains cable that is screened will effectively pipe the RFI into your equipment". Can you explain how that works?

    You will have to give more of a clue as to which aspect of the wide ranging thread you are commenting about.

    Is it quieter because you used screened cable or has something else changed I wonder? To be really sure you would need to put the old cable back.

    Well isn't live rock music pretty basic stuff? (although often mixed in with a liberal dose of 50Hz hum).

    This is a stupid question.

    And could one perhaps could say the below to give a bit more info? Active speakers have the crossover before the power amplification and usually therefore have a separate amplifier for each speaker driver. Powered speakers are passive speakers with an on-board power amp. PS, I am sure there is a thread somewhere where @TheFlash set out the stages of him getting his head around the active/powered difference.

    And for the record and since you have accused me in public of selling foo I have responded to you privately. You have picked on a completely non foo product to attack.

    Am I the only one to find all this 'point scoring' posting rather tedious and completely off putting? (Rab my target is elsewhere if you felt my gun pointing at you). We were in a mildly interesting discussion about possible RFI aspects of mains cables until someone decided to try to impress with his one sided knowledge of amplifiers. Just exactly how did we get there?

    Has Shadders really posted half the posts in the thread?

    Now I have had a good night sleep I am in a better frame if mind.. With all due respect your first 7 words are boiiocks. Plenty of well respected engineers know perfectly well that RFI affects audio equipment and freely discuss this in open forum. I have no idea why you think that your oft repeated mantra supersedes and replaces the wisdom and experience of other engineers working in this area. I say other engineers on the basis that you are an electronics or RF engineer but neither might be the case. I have specifically discussed this whole area with two retired RF engineers but of course they might now realise that their lifes work had been a waste of time. I dipped out of this thread before and here I go again. Bye.
