    Something Special for All You Audiophiles Out There

    For years, audiophiles have been spending extra money to squeeze the best possible sound out of their stereo systems. Some of this extra money is justified, but other times, it's not. (I'm looking at you, Monster Cables.) This product caught my attention for three reasons: The price, the fact that it's ridiculous, and the excellent product reviews...

    Only if you connect your iPod to a pair of JM Labs Focal Grand Utopia speakers (a bargain at only $180,000/pair). Using Monster cables, of course.

    I was impressed that people who viewed the outlet also viewed 'Tuscan Whole Milk, 1 gallon! Was that you, Vaughn?

    Oh gosh I really had to work to not come up with a snappy reply to this one.

    I won the battle thanks to my integrity and the Family Woodworking rules.

    Enjoy,

    Vaughn, you have WAY TOO MUCH free time.

    It should work great if you can get the power company to upgrade the wiring in their supply lines to "audio grade" copper!
