As others have already addressed, please stop doing this sort of thing.

It's based on a myth that I think started in the fake, high-end
audiophile segment, back in the early 1980s. I call it fake, because
the people there are clueless science deniers. It's a shame that they
have persisted and become so influential. Their presence and influence
has just about killed off high-end audio, which here in the USA, was
once a proud market segment offering some fine electronic designs
often built to very high quality standards. I miss it.

Sorry for the rant.
