No one can convince me the file used to file your nails makes a difference to the sound of the guitar. No one. Ever.
I’m thinking more in terms of the nails affects tone,
But yeah, I guess when put like that - it’s like saying the blade that cuts the plectrum affects the tone of the plectrum

there’s a lot of voodoo though - I stand by my wire comment!

A guy I work with bought a new TV setup and was going on about the gold cables he bought as they made the HD more HD. He got really thick with me when I pointed out that as an electro chemist who uses shittier cables to do more fine tuned recordings than the electronics in a TV that he’s been swindled. Cognitive dissonance is a bitch sometimes.

i once had an argument in a hi-fi shop with the owner about CD transports. sure, i was willing to accept that spending more on a DAC could improve the sound, but he was insisting that a €1500 cd transport was better than a €400 one. a better class of ones and zeroes was basically what he was arguing.

on this topic, a german colleague of mine recently bought an apartment off the plans. he paid extra for them to run a spur directly off the main bus in the car park underneath, just for his hi-fi. so he gets cleaner electricity. he's still going to use his mains conditioner on that supply, though.

i've heard his hi-fi (on his previous pair of speakers); it sounds amazing. but he now buys music which flatters his hi-fi. he looked at me aghast when i put loveless on it.

I mean i can tell what bit rate and mp3 file is, or if it's an ogg based compression or if its' been sampled from whatsapp, zoom or skype just by listening to about 5-6 seconds generally but when it comes to music I'm just never gonna care that much. I suppose it's harmless though.
