Because Monster Cables was monopolizing the ridiculously overpriced and under-performing cable market, here's AudioQuest's entry: a 3.3-foot, $1,096 HDMI connector. That's $332/foot! What makes it so special?
It's made entirely out of urethras No f***ing clue. Oh, wait:
This HDMI cable features a Dielectric-Bias System that reduces distortion and 100% Perfect-Surface Silver conductors for improved signal clarity. The Direct-Silver-plated HDMI connectors provide a simple connection and durability.
Of course -- a dielectric-bias system and perfect-surface silver conductors. Noooooooo, that doesn't sound like a stinking bag of bullshit. Anybody who buys one of these deserves to be strangled with it. Seriously, 3.3-feet? You should hold out for at least a 6-footer.
