Re: Tinker, Tailor, Streamer, Pi.

Ethernet link: a switching unit that maintains the integrity of the network data signal and use of cable that protects from RF interference. In standard CAT8 LAN cable for instance, every internal strand is separately shielded. Coax cable using OCC single-crystal eradicates internal crystal boundar...

Re: Tinker, Tailor, Streamer, Pi.

On the face of it, that Eno filter is a completely and utterly bonkers purchase for £500 or more. For less money than that you could have a fibre optic cabling network set-up in your home. Fibre optics are 100% guaranteed not to have any electrical interference on the signal whatsoever! So instead ...

Re: Terminitus

It occurs to me that if the cable used in the studio/concert hall has screwed up these aspects, better cable in the listening room is not going to restore it. All a different cable or co...

Re: Terminitus

When many interconnects cost more than a thousand and speaker cables run in to the thousands and in a few cases tens of thousands it's almost inevitable that the market will attract the bullshit crew with their misleading claims. On another forum there was one person that had spent more on cables a...

Re: "Freedom" of speech

What about the rights of the owners of Twitter to decide who should be given a platform on their social media service?

Re: Coronavirus restrictions: are they legal

With a wave of Johnson's hand or a signature from Hancock new law is passed. No scrutiny required. Approved by parliment 24 hours after becomming law and with the exception of a few tories, no opposition, most notably from the opposition. Who the hell is holding this bunch to account? Not MSM that'...

About 5 million American swing voters already did that by switching from voting for him at the last election to voting for Biden this time around.
