    Cables Iíll leave alone. But generally, everything is affected by inflation. Everything. The bulk dog food we buy was always $99. For years. Itís now $140. It went $120, $130, $140. Inflation is the biggest middle class tax. Look at the price...

    There's a difference between saying a price for a commodity is a rip off vice saying you bought something and were ripped off as a result of your purchase.

    Yeah now ask what watch everyone is wearing. Same deal, a $25 Timex tells the same time as a $20K Rolex, but some people have the need to say "I have a Rolex" It is no different with every other luxury item out there including audio.
