This applied to not just interconnect., but also to power cable, USB cable, fuse. It's a wonder that we're not seeing audiophile SATA cable, drives, memory or reflow service to resolder your equipment with silver based solder.
You guys have been missing out on audiophile SATA cables!!!!!!!
I couldn't quickly find a link on where to purchase those, unfortunately.
I could've sworn I saw posts on head-fi suggesting putting music on SSDs because of some kind of spinning of mechanical drives messing up the audio. That said, solid-state storage does have lower acoustic noise during operation, if you don't have a NAS elsewhere or quiet drives far enough away...

I'm sure he sold a lot of cable by getting mad at people!
Maybe McDonalds should go crazy on people if the DON'T Supersize their Fries or Shakes.
BTW, It's been a while since I was in McDonalds so I don't know if they still Supersize, Spurlock may have beaten that out of them.
You think they still call it "Supersize" after all the stigma these days? Now that would be great marketing.
Actually, fast food these days is significantly better than it was 10+ years ago (not that it's such an accomplishment, but still)... some improved refreshes of old options, many more items including different food types, some menu options that taste far better than cardboard yet won't kill you if you eat them regularly. It's not exactly great or anything to look forward to, but still, who would've thunk?
