Post Subject: Van den Hul new cables.Posted by Romy the Cat on: 12/28/2010

I have absolutely no assumption how those cables sound but the write up about them is absolutely idiotic.

The phrases like “fewer than two .80mm solid core conductors” describing the specification of a cable sure deserve Pulitzer Prizes for journalism.  Bu the phrases “Hulliflex jacket make this 11.3mm cable a must-have for serious audio enthusiasts” as a justification of a price tag $1.5K for $19.95 cable I am sure is good for Nobel Prize in literature.

Again, I do not make any presumption how they sound but the marketing descriptions of this type make me want to vomit. Why do not tall what everyone know – audio cables manufacturing for cables maker has the highest cost to wholesale value in the industry.  Furthermore the resellers have higher mark up for cables, up to 80%.

So, Van den Hul declared a “cable revolution” make 4 new cables from $9.95 to $39.95. How do they sound? I ma sure that they sound better then the “revolution” that the sales pimps declared last year.

What I am saying: the audio cables shall not be expensive and shall not be sold by trying them. The audio cables shall be cheap, person shall be it, and if she do not like it then it need to be thrown array – like baying extraction cord in Low’s. Why audio cable shall be more expensive if  Low’s extension cord  is more technologically complex then any audio cable in the market and has absolutely the same probability to sound good?
