So the ¥43,000 question is, could this US$7,000 Dreamline be the next logical step after getting that Duchess Crown from Korea for close to HK$7,000?
BTW, I'm still scratching my head and trying to figure out why nobody had the courage to match ToTL cables with some of the best connectors out there - except for that "mysterious" product prototype shown in Portaken recently.
FYI - first one from Taiwan (NT$1,800) was getting raved reviews while the other one from WW should be available in Sham Shui Po for HK$480 a piece (no DIY cables got reviewed yet?)

I'm gonna be honest and say I don't think I can hear any diff in the ATL vs Oyaide Rhodium. The Oyaide gold plated does make a difference and due to my silly mistake, I blamed it on some unnamed maker claiming his cables weren't consistent :p. When eventually it turned out it wasn't the cable but was the Oyaide Rhodium vs the gold plated.
One thing though, the ATL does peel as well so I'm not certain if it's truly that much more durable. It's one heck of a looker though. I mean if I didn't care about the additional cost, I'd use the ATL on all my plugs purely for it's looks ;-).
