    Heh, funny stuff.
    I do notice a difference between 192k MP3 and high quality ogg though.

    yes, but if you upsample that 192k MP3 to a 500k or so OGG, its still the same thing

    I reckon these could make a hell of a difference to hi-fi...

    and when you get home, you can pop open the bonnet, take them out, and put them on top of your hifi!

    Who wants to write to them asking if one of those can improve performance in a high-end pc :D

    Another exception:

    (x) audible
    improvement in sound quality can be attained by:
    (x) using ethernet instead of wireless

    In my old house with roomates - my computer (and shared iTunes library) was in the basement wired to a wireless access point on the main floor that one of my roommates would connect to from his laptop. It worked great everywhere except in the 'office' upstairs - it kept cutting out; so we wired up some cat 5 from the basement to the second floor office and it worked fine. (the wireless worked well in the second floor bedroom, in the basement, and outside - just not in the office that was right next to the bedroom)

    ROFL, I hope no one minds if I hang onto a copy of that form. Concerning the original post, lol, someone never learned Kirchoff's laws :)

    I also get a kick out of people claiming RF effects at audio frequencies. But presenting the math to this crowd is worthless. It's like a religion, one specifically that pumps you for money :)
