Topic: Foundation Theory; Cables, Cords and Supports
Roy Gregory is best known as the founder and editor
of Hi-Fi Plus magazine. As an active member of the UK hi-fi industry, he
has played many roles including customer, retailer, manufacturer, distributor
and journalist. He recently joined specialist cable manufacturer Nordost
as VP of marketing.
Working with a consistent set of electronics and speakers,
Mr. Gregory purports to show the sonic impact of changing the AC power cords,
signal leads and supports. He will demonstrate a measurement protocol to
support the notion of the sonic effectiveness of "ancillaries"
such as AC cords and equipment supports.

with Open Forum, which is open discussion, which lasts 30-45 minutes.
