Are there actually people daft enough to spend $499 on a 1.5.metre cable?

Of course, the answer is 'yes'. There must be more mugs in the hi-fi world than just about any other. I've never forgotten when I had a passing interest in hi-fi many years ago, I read an excited letter in a magazine from a nutter who assured us with absolute certainty that he had significantly improved the sound of his audio system by removing the plastic caps from his phono plugs. Very Happy

Hi towy71...

Did you see this one liner...

"I was hoping for a core of pure Borgnium, to
which resistance would have been futile."

ROTFLMAO, I`m in tears with that one...

BTW, I`m still reading all of the p1ss taking replies.
Loads of `em...

It's not only the expensive products that get the interesting reviews, even the humble Bic comes in for a fair share.

Edit: and by all means look up the "three wolf moon t-shirt", complete with video review. Shocked Laughing

I particularly like the dimensional rift preventability posts:
5 star 67% (41)
4 star 1% (1)
3 star 4% (3)
2 star (0)
1 star 26% (16)


"Due to the high flux conductivity, this dishwasher safe Dedicated Link Cable has very impressive dimensional rift preventability capabilities. In addition to it's innate talent for dimensional rift preventability, this cable makes an excellent cancer-curing noose. Though the sound quality and transmission range is sub-par compared to anti..." (more)
From E. Quintana's review on 10/25/2009:
"My wife just recently hung her self with the Denon AKDL1 Dedicated Link Cable. She was dead instantly. Very satisfied with the results. I think im going to hang my clothes with it next then maybe myself. Dimensional rift preventability works wonders! I dont know how I live life with out this cable. Life is wonderful!!" (more)
