Any idea how old that article you've linked to is ? There's no date on it although the files are dated 22 October 2010. The site doesn't seem to be complete either.
Unfortunately no. It's one I came across a while ago. From memory I think it would have been late 2010 - I think it was someone over on iDNetters who did the tests. Couldn't say for sure.
I wonder if the parts and design of any of the filters the person tested have changed since October 2010 ?
They may well have done although tbh I doubt there's been any significant change. Phil Yarwell might have some more up to date info.
My preference for the passive filters came about after I had two of the XTE-2005 faceplates fail - one mine and one I bought for a neighbour. They were replaced without question and that said, many people on here have had no trouble with them so maybe they were from a bad batch. YMMV of course.
