    If I was rich enough to wipe my dirty ass with $100 bills after taking a shit I would buy that but in any other situation I would slap the faces of the people behind marketing and hopefully just " trying " to sell that.

    i have customers that pay upwards of 250,000 (yes a quarter of a million) for a media room amplifier. so spending that on cable isn't all that shocking. that being said no way in hell i would ever sell that or install it.

    oh it's pure sex, ADA custom builds it for customers. Basically it is a 5 ch, 400w per, tube amp. of 6 that ADA has made we've sold two, and have the third on order for our studio i believe.

    what kind of speakers are you pushing with that much power?

    Dynaudio Evidence series could probably get jiggy with that power. So can B&W nautilus'. Damn, I wish I had like 700k for a sound system. :wtc:

    that or something similar will be my prediction.

    I'll bet no one can hear the difference between a $50 cable and a $10,000 cable unless that $10,000 cable has other passive devices inserted that alter the signal just so that people will notice a difference, even if it is a negative one.

    I think you are right on.

    I believe that a competently designed, reasonably priced cable will have no ill affect on the signal it carries.

    I also believe that a cable can be designed to sound different by altering the resistance, inductance, and capacitance of the cable. I think that many high-end cables are designed in this fashion. So, they are basically charging more money for broken cables.

    A writer at audioholics.com said he couldnt even find measurable distortion through something as shaudy as a solder.

    I bought one of those cables and after listening to my Bose Acoustimass 3 system with it I had a spontaneous orgasm.

    on a site :hs:

    i dont remember where but it was discussing how clark apparently got pissed when someone tried having a cable related argument and he wasnt having due to the fact he was representing a cable manufcaturing company or something to that effect

    however, i of course, cant completely verify this :dunno:

    and to the reply i originally quoted on this matter, i really didnt understand what that statement had to do with anything
