Smile I've found it! I've found what EVERONE needs!

An $800 USB cable.

"Initial listening notes - a focusing of instruments - ear-catching realism of voices - emergence of micro-dynamic qualities - scary holographic qualities of soundstage - like entering a fourth dimension"

Just when I thought I'd seen everything.

(Oh and sorry about the "EVERYONE" misspelling. Apparently I'm not quite awake yet. )

LOL. Here's a nice "carbon fiber, limited edition" keychain to go along with it. It'll only set you back $60.

too late, just have a look at the testimonial page: their references are head-fi.org members and their "paid in advance" threads.

So of I get one of these for transferring the music to my Clip+, I can expect greater soundstage and clarity from my music, right?

Exactly!! You don't want the digital signal to become "distorted".

Everytime I see cable at this sort of price a part of me dies knowing that someone somewhere is willing to buy it. This is why all faith I have in the human race to stop self inflicted disasters, caused mostly by our large population, has evapourate resulting in escapeism.

To summarise, overpriced cable is symptomatic of the stupidity and ignorance of the human rac, not including the ABI crowd of course.

Hey Sid, how do you like those 428's? I've had a pair for sometime now that I've been using with my M-Audio FastTrack Pro for mastering. They do a really good job, especially for the price. They've since been replaced with a pair of B&W P5's, but they certainly did their job for the year or so I used 'em.

I am really tempted to make handcrafted fancy cables by myself. It may be a very lucrative endeavor.

There seems to be a lot of wealthy morons who are willing to spend a lot of money for that kind of stuff.

Stealing the rich is ok with me.

ROFL! Hose cables are awesome.

I've always been more accepting to higher-priced (but not ridiculous) cables and connectors that carry an analog signal. To a limit, wire type and shielding play a decent part in transferring and keeping the audio pure.

But these guys are touting a simple USB data transfer cable will somehow make the audio sound better. Comedy at it's finest.
