    I'm just wondering why this is in the Musical Instrument section and not in the Cable or General Audio Discussion section.

    Yes, Kuoppis, this is really pretty sad.

    A cable or a car? I mean, really.

    Well Keith, I cannot but agree with you. Was quite bamboozled reading through the list.

    MIT - the company that single-handedly started the whole exorbitant pricing trend, again does not disappoint!

    $80k speaker cable ? What's next ?

    A good question in my mind would be, which cable products actually are good value for money in this market situation?

    Nordost Valhalla was the cable that started the trend from my memory way back in 2000. There was nothing remotely close in price back then.

    The big joke about MIT is that it is easily obtained at 50%+ off. Corporate pricing isn't reality to begin with.
