60 inches of this ridiculous ethernet uber-cable costs $500

Oh dear, oh dear. I’m surprised the description doesn’t mention that your signal is being accelerated by being bathed in snake oil. It lowers my estimation of the human race’s worth when anyone can actually be foolish enough — or simply rich enough — to buy something like this.

Ultra-high-end solutions like this are regularly mocked. Audiophiles can’t tell you the difference between a coat hanger and outrageously expensive cabling. Preying on the credulous is not a new business strategy, when you take the signal quality ploy and attempt to apply it to a non-analog source, alleging noticeable lossiness in a digital signal over 5 feet of wire, you’re more than a con man — you’re a goddamn comedian.
