At the Reproduced Sound 18 conference, in 2002, a paper was presented (by the same authors) on the subject of how loudspeaker cables of different construction may affect, in different ways, the electrical signals which they are passing. The aim was to try to find justification for the widespread view that the sound character of loudspeaker / amplifier combinations can be influenced by the cables which interconnect them. As a result of the above presentation, several suggestions were made relating to how the measurement techniques could be refined, or made to be more revealing. The first part of this paper is therefore, in effect, a report on the continuation of the work which led to the 2002 paper. The second part of the paper re-visits some unpublished work which had previously only been presented as a conference workshop.
