Tuck and Patti's report about RMC01
Hi, Angelo!
As you know, we have done many cable A/B tests over the years, starting in the early 80's. It was clear to us from the beginning that not all cables sound the same, and we went to considerable lengths to find the best-sounding ones. We did not have the tools to do scientific A/B tests, so we were reduced to switching cables as fast as possible, then singing or playing some more. Even that way, relying on our memory, both of us could hear clearly that there were differences. Patti became our top tester. She would go into another room while Tuck played and switched cables, then she would yell "That one!" whenever she liked one. She always picked the same one!
