Ripping off audiophools, $500 at a time

I’ve seen this mentioned in a few geek news outlets, the Denon AKDL1 Dedicated Link Cable. 1.5 meters of CAT5 cable for $500 — but then your music will sound so much better than with $1.5 cables !

The Amazon reviews are mostly hilarious. I wonder how large the target market can be for this, which is the perfect example of Snake Oil Product :-) The tags are mostly right.
