I have to agree with JC - if SE makes these cables just for himself, why set up a website & put up a subjective recommendation from Positive Feedback? I'm confused

I'd hazard that a positive review of his cables enhances his subjective experience of them. Works for most people.

I think SE sells them for $300/0.5m - at least that's what I read in a earlier post.

Usually people put up positive reviews to sell more of a product. But, I won't try to read SE's mind.

Gee, I hope I've quoted correctly!

Sy, I guess Steve's lack of blind testing on the cables he sells doesn't make his venture immoral?
