I think of myself as a man of science. I try not to believe in anything and to rely on proofs and experiments as much as I can.
If I can’t measure something, I try to understand how it works in theory and therefore how it should behave, and if things I find out are supported by theory or not. Let me say right at the start that I don’t believe in cables making a difference, but that’s because I think there’s nothing to be believed – something either works or it does not, there’s no need to believe.
We’re talking about cables, not some god or the immortal soul. We have this saying in Italy which goes roughly like “I’m like Saint Thomas, I don’t believe in things unless they’re right in front of me” – that’s my approach. So when I was asked if I wanted to try the iFi SPDIF iPurifier, I was interested in finding out whether it worked or not.
