Um.. can somebody give me a good reason why this is worth $485??? Do you get a pack of 5000 or anything?

It reduces vibrations. Don't you know that even one vibration can entirely ruin the appreciation of a beautiful piece of music?

Does this beat the 1000 USD power cable mendel found a while back?

Magical cable properties are old hat. Knob vibration? Yow!

I,I "knob vibration", but you can get that a lot cheaper at Toys in Babeland.

Re: Better

The part of me that gives all theories a running chance figures "knob vibrations" makes more sense then "magical cables". They are also cheaper. :-)

What needs to be done, however, is to start a company that produces speaker cables hand rolled by certified virgins.

"Hand rolled cables create a gentler, more human sound, and the fact they are virgins removes all the harsh taint of sin."

Re: Better

What sort of audio equipment with knobs only has one knob? Their own amp takes two, and you certainly wouldn't want to risk having your knobs vibrating out of phase with each other, right? :-)

But they can cover you for AC too, with $1200 chokes.
