The expensive Denon network cable has some interesting reviews, too: http://www.amazon.com/Denon-AKDL1-Dedicated-Cable-Version/dp/B000I1X6PM/

Although the funniest I've seen on Amazon are for the banana slicer.

O_o.....

 

This is just ridiculous. Especially the first comment on Amazon:

 

"I was going to buy a $2.82 hdmi cable on amazon and then I came across this masterpiece, and I knew I had to do whatever it takes to get it. The best part is I dont even own a tv, I plugged this thing into 2 pieces of cardboard and some chewing gum, and bam I had 500 channels. I dont know how that happened, but one of the armored car drivers did resemble Macgyver. Hurry out and get one before they get bought up!!".

 

So, he was looking for a 3 dollar cable and immediately fell in love with a 3000 cable and had to save up and get advances on his salaries. Wow, talk about marketing. Facepalm all the way to China and back.

Sarcasm kinda got lost on you there I think.

That's what you get for being idiotic enough to buy it! Put it up for sale in the Head-Fi classifieds, and you can probably get a lot of your money back. Be sure to let them know yours is a the limited release that has the Vibranium alloy connectors to prevent resonance from traveling down the cable between devices. biggrin.gif

I've never heard of that stuff before. OMG.

Some days, I wish I lacked the scruples necessary to fleece the gullible people in this hobby. I could make a fortune smily_headphones1.gif
