What is quite stuck in my mind is AudioQuest’s “perfect-surface” copper and silver.
From what I’ve gathered its structure and method of manufacture have not been stated. Does perfect surface really refer to just the surface of the conductor? Or the whole lattice “surface”? I guess not.
Siltech produces monocrystalline silver. It makes some of their products prohibitely expensive. I trust AQ’s PSC and PSS aren’t even close in metallurgical perfection.
This is just one example.
What do you think of their tricks? Charged dielectric? Etc? Is it all viable?
