    Great article, and lovely to see the whole thing being laid bare for the uninitiated and the geeks alike. As a low budget taper myself it’s fascinating and inspiring to read about the lengths and costs some people go to.

    nice article. I’m interested in these “active cables”, as I’ve never heard of them. If you could send some info to my email or say something here about them, that would be very nice.
