Calling Shenanigans On Super SATA’s Claimed Audio Qualities

nk497 writes “Veteran Hi-Fi journalist Malcolm Steward has pushed newfangled Super SATA cables via his blog as a way to improve the sound quality of music, saying: ‘My only guess is that the Super SATAs reject interference significantly better than the standard cables and in so doing lower the noise floor revealing greater low-level musical detail and presentational improvements in the soundstage and the “air” around instruments.’ If that doesn’t sound right to you, you’re not alone. As PC Pro blogger Sasha Muller argues: ‘How on earth can a SATA cable delivering 0s and 1s to their respective destination have any effect on those 0s and 1s? The answer is, it can’t. Unless it’s a magical one made of pixie shoes.’ So maybe don’t invest in Super SATA cables unless you have proof they’re magical first.”
