Hi everyone,

We've decided to change the policy around participation of cables discussions. We now consider that cable threads in the Cables & Accessories forum are intended for those who believe that cables make a difference in how their systems sound.

If you do not believe in cables, then please do not participate in any cables discussions unless they are intended by the OP to debate whether cables have any effect on sound or where the OP has explicitly invited other non-believers to participate. The OP will make this clear that they are inviting a debate by the thread title and in the text of the first message.

Posts which are argumentative, offensive, or break the general rules or the Cables forum rules will be removed. Repeat offenders will be banned from posting in the Cables forum.

Yes, great news. It will save a lot of hassle in those threads.

Thanks to Forbes_2 for suggesting this and to the admin and mods for making it happen!

I can imagine how busy the mods already are without adding this additional forum category. Thanks for taking this on. I am looking forward to learning lots.

Again, THANKS!

Sounds like good solution. So if I want to post:

I only use "Blue Jeans Cables" in my system because they cost less than 50 bucks a pair and sound every bit as good or better than those costing thousands of dollars or more.


Then I am OK to put this in any thread?

No. If there's a cable thread, just stay out. Thanks in advance.

As the above post clearly shows that you do not believe that cables can make a clear difference in the overall sound of a system one has to wonder...
Did you read what admin stated in para two of the original post?.
