    Cool, I've heard great things about this cable.

    Why palladium?
    Is this a "my cable is my jewelry/bling" thing?

    It's electrically inferior, by far, to simple copper or silver.

    I had the same thought, it’s less electrically conductive than iron. I don’t think the corrosive resistant nature of palladium would be that useful in cables.

    What will they cost?
  7. CalvinW
    Probably same, if not more than the Horus, which is sitting at 1599 USD

    Got my eye on the dynamic :)

    Technically speaking, less conductive is more resistance, that means colorations or boost and attenuation toward different frequency. How will it affect your personal interests? It is for you to judge. I know for a fact that it would heavily affect your pocket for sure.

    For me, the utmost true to the sources are much more important. Otherwise, I could always grab some clothes hangars and color up my system just fine, or even a resistor in the Cables will also do that job

    I understand the electrical aspects. Or lack thereof...
    Paying obscene $$$ for a rare-metal cable just to be able to say point out its expense, not so much...
    I mean, it's a silver colored metal, covered in a plastic jacket. What?

    The after market cable industry is really getting out of hand

    If you don’t want it, don’t buy it.

    If you want it but don’t want to pay for it, build your own. That’s how these aftermarket cable companies started up, anyhow.

    I agree that it’s quite expensive. Personally, I wouldn’t pay $300 for a glorified resistor but I’d pay up to $300 for the bling factor.

    There’s no way these will be under $300 though haha

    Thanks, Captain Obvious. I have no intention of purchasing such fluff.

    No way indeed.
    Palladium is $1000/oz. For reference, silver is $16/oz. Not there is an oz of metal in a cable...

    The only reason for being is to part suckers and bling aficionados from their cash.
    Pains me a little, but to each their own I guess.

    People who blow their money on cables deserve to be duped.

    “Personally, I wouldn’t pay $300 for a glorified resistor but I’d pay up to $300 for the bling factor.”

    You must come from a very wealthy family if you’re paying $300 for mere “bling factor”.
