- Since our cables have a metal sheath, there is no electrostatic charge as is possible with plastic sheathed cables. One caveat; carpets can hold static charges so theoretically if the cables are moved within the carpet strands there could be static induction into the sheath. We have not seen this effect in the real time, however.
- Some fanatics might claim that the carpet is a dielectric referenced to earth ground via a concrete slab that can affect the audio signal. We have not personally measured or heard this phenomenon.
- Tip: To control static charges in carpets, mix a small amount of Downey fabric softener with water in a spray bottle. This method is used in industry to protect electronics from static discharge damage.
I received a few emails regarding the use of cable elevators with our cables. Do they make a sonic improvement? A little discussion follows.
