        The internet is serious business!

        I wish it wasn't... checking the internet was bloody depressing this morning. Funny cat photos or arguments about cables would have been much preferred.

      I read once that you can fix noisy tubes (on and off rustling type noise) by putting a solder iron to each pin for 5-10 seconds

        You guys know how rolling nearly-dead batteries between your palms heats up the electrolytes stored therein and increases the likelihood of chemical reactions necessary to produce electricity taking place? Pretty sure it's something similar here, since (I cheated and looked this up) the cathodes in toobz are heated to aid in the processes that cause sound to be amplified.

        ^Please do cut me some slack if I painted with a massive brush, I barely know how headphones and speakers work— amplifiers and DACs and the specific functions of components are all well beyond my ken :))

        @elmoe, I'll compromise and settle for boob tubes!

        Considering I've bought 2 DACs and 2 headphone amps in the past 15 years, I've probably been doing that more than most people here ;)

        Reminds me of when I was a kid, my mom built a Heathkit Zenith 500W power amplifier. Sounded nice, I used it for years. Forgot whatever happened to it.

        Your mom built a power amp? That sounds like a fun childhood.

        My mom was a Rockwell-certified solderer and wire-wrapper! Lots of electronics work in Dallas in the 70's-80's. Heck, there's still a lot here but of course now it's all wave soldered SMD stuff.

        I am fine with you not thinking cables do anything. That’s your opinion and experience, and I invite dissenting opinions. But this is just the same argument about cables which results in nothing new being settled.

        SBAF is not like other forums - the mods and senior members will cut up/off anything that doesn’t pass the smell test.

        Sometimes admitting you have a problem is the first step to recovery. Telling me to move on/STFU and engaging me over and over on the topic, both here and on the thread, is contradictory to say the least. It's ok, I won't tease you anymore about spending beaucoup bucks on USB cables.
