    Hey Everyone,

    I’m thinking of recreating Nelson Pass’s 1980 cable tests using a variety of modern cables.

    Anyone with cables in the 6-12foot range care to get involved, or lend cables for the tests?

    I have a few from brands like Transparent, Pear Cable, Monster Cable, Belden, and DNM Design. Was thinking about picking up some Audio Art, Canare, and Audioquest for testing.

    I have also reached out to the nice folks at thecableco.com for a few samples for the test.

    Could be a fun weekend project.

    This sounds like something most members would be interested in participating in. I think Larry may be working on incorporating this into an event. Larry?
