Audiofanatics trying to get that last cps of response are willing to spend
rather large sums of money on dubious solutions (no one yet has
suggested that audio cables should be carefully aligned with the
Earth's magnetic lines of force...?!). The next question shall be, "If
you are playing an analog phonorecord, in which direction should
you be facing? (In relation to the Earth's magnetic lines of force?!")
Why,I may have lost several cycles-per-second through my system?!?
But, being effectively deaf to certain frequencies, I wouldn't have
noticed the difference! Sadly, I suspect that muchy of the ARC/78-L
contingent, being around my age (or higher?!), also have "hearing
