It's not as much as the concept, but the price tag on it.

Hi,

Plastic becomming magnetic.
Do they really mean MAGNETIC?
Or are they confusing it with STATIC?

Quote:
Take the interconnects from noordost. They are an exact match of a twisted pair of multistranded copper, just priced somewhat higher.
The question then is, how to do market it? Are THEY making any extravagant claims about it?

I mean, anyone can buy twisted pair cable or even make their own but if the Nordost still sounds better to most listeners then it's probably not just industrial cable rebadged, no?

Quote:
Look at a site like audio note. They have been so far out that they have been posted as jokes here on the forum.
I make jokes about them too although it's mostly at the way the products are priced.
Although that is probably the oldest marketing trick in the world anyway: being extravagantly priced only works for as long as you're the only one holding the goodies in your hands, no?

Cheers,

But I'm not listening to them, just observe what they do and joke about it from time to time

Cheers,

One could hope they had it confused with static, but the sad truth is NOT so.

Noordost are marketing the interconnects as superior high end, I compared them with a pair of DIY interconnects made of the silver plated wire we spoke about the other evening. Dont get me wrong, I havnt found anything thats better than a twisted pair of silver plated copper wire (plated for the sake of avoiding oxidation of the copper), but thats besides the point. The fact is that there is research and materials for less than 10 USD in those interconnects. Counting out the subjective claims that is

Don't get me wrong, but to me the above statement is snake oil with intention of the profit: For sale: Habia Silver plated teflon insulated copper wire

I even find it harder to believe that bulk price for that wire is $1.33 per meter.

It's always polite to listen, but you don't have to believe!
