Hahaha wow. How would you feel if you had purchased one of these to find out that they came at .0000000000005% of what the company paid for them.

High end cables like that can't really be made by hand.  Someone's gotta make the cable, and chances are, it's going to be the Taiwanese.  Don't act so shocked.  And yeah, don't assume that just because it comes from over there, that it's cheap to make.  

 

Although...

and the Zensati #3

Are remarkably alike.  Lots of money can be saved if you modify existing designs, for sure.

That's awesome, someone deleted my comment. They must have paid 20,000 Euros for their speaker wire. All I'm saying is for that much you could literally feed a starving child in Africa for years.

 

But then, I suppose that would keep people from experiencing absolute true definitive clarity and the most pristine angelic frequency presence that ever licked your eardrums.
