    17k for a power cable. Holy sh*t I might just have to unretire and start selling cables. I did like how they mentioned R&D, guess that's researching and developing products to sell to idiots

          That's (almost) unbelievable: you could buy two or three good cars for that - or help some people in need.....

        Cables can make a difference, but only if they are deliberately engineered incorrectly. Some of them roll off the highs (which can help fix problems typical in quite a few high end speakers - looking at you BW and Wilson), etc. I think the high end customers buy kind of crappy speakers and then spend many thousands more swapping cables, DAC's, etc chasing a fix for a poorly engineered speaker or a crappy room (we have all seen a lot of pictures of $100,000 speakers in rooms with dozens of reflective surfaces).

        I think that is why DIY'ers rarely have concerns over cables - we just generally have better engineered speakers than the high end offers. High end all chase a house sound and compromise baffle geometry etc.

        Anyways, I love a good looking cable.
        Don't listen to me - I have not sold any $150,000 speakers.

          Yeah, a DIYer can easily make nice cables. And you're right, with notable exceptions the speaker manufacturers have other concerns than the best sound.

            I wonder how many of the crazy expensive products (not counting the homemade one-off scams) are simply part of a money laundering scheme.

              Lol I hope you're right. In any event, if these clowns sell even one snake-oil cable they're probably set for the year.

                Yep. Copper zip cord of adequate gauge gives as good as it gets results. The only thing so-called 'improvements' can do is to make it worse. I can just imagine what's inside those do-dads on those $150k cables. Chances are it's just wire.

                  I don't see how that "clamp" could work in "changer" mode?

                    The only clear improvement I know of for speaker cables (RF termination) is routinely ignored by audiophiles, I suspect because it's 1) almost free, 2) doesn't require expensive cable, and 3) they don't understand it anyway:
