Sorry for this....but I had to post. How can anybody in their right mind pay $7000 for a 6ft power cable.....

Is there any empirical evidence to show that such a cable would be sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo much better than stock?

wow!!!

Just slide a ferrite bead RF choke over a regular power cable and call it good. Even that might be overkill depending on the power supply circuitry.

It's amazing how much uber rich guys will blow on utter crap just to have bragging rights. I used to work at Tara Labs and it was unbelievable how many people would get in line to buy their expensive cables.

I looked at the Tara Labs website, and I found it dangerous that you have to contact them to get price of most expensive cables. And by the way, how does it feel to work for a company , that is an obvious scam ?
