its a scientific fact. Kinda like the ocean floor spreading!
I can't wait.
Polarization has been the plauge of all cable using bassists since the steam powered amp. I think monster cables are depolarized, so they are probably safe. Thats why they are so expensive!
In that case, I've got a few cables that have flip-flopped 6 or 7 times.
Riiiiggggghhhhht! Just about the same time the earth's poles reverse, right?
Did Munjibunga put you up to this?
What direction are they going now?
I think my cable's headed North-by-Northwest at this point, but only because it missed that left at Albuquerque.
My cables are always pointing to the right and I can't figure out why.
Are they Republican?
naaah, coriolis force, they turn to the left in Australia...
My cables used to have that problem, but I had them spayed and they behave now. If they could only learn to use the litter box...!
That's why I only buy pre-aged cables. They're a lot like cheese that way.
Once I bought a new cable, but it was ok because I marked one end with tape and made sure that I plugged it into the bass 1/2 the time, and the amp the other half.
This thread is funny as all heck; but seriously-does anyone believe that cables have an "electronic direction" ? I have asked electrical engineers (not in the instrument business) they say it's not possible.
What do you guys think?
Wow, I did not know this! Do all the cables go at once? Like the swallows returning to Capistrano? How do you know when they've changed?
The polarity of my cable can change more than 20,000 times per SECOND!
Go ask some of the guys on the audiophile boards whether cables are directional....
Some cables can be sort of directional if they're sheilded and the shield is only terminated at one end. But in general, cables that pass AC signals (like most cables of any kind) aren't directional in any way.
You must have a really special cable, then!
Your wife/girlfriend must be proud.
