They even go so far as to claim transmission line effects can be seen at audio frequencies. This article and related YouTube video serves to demystify the nonsense surrounding this topic.
This article explores if varying the length of speaker cables between speakers really makes a difference in audibility. Watch our related YouTube video to see what truly matters.
