    "The result is much as you will hear from our GT2 USB cable: Clear and open highs, elegant midrange textures, powerful but in-control bass, an enhanced sense of the sheer palpability of the music you’ll enjoy. "

    Even if you have a usb soundcard, i still find the above very difficult to stomach, considering the d/a converters would be on the unit, therefore there would be no degradation in the signal... psht i hate cables.

    Rule of thumb - Anologue cables, buy nice ones. Digital cables, for the most part, it really doesnt matter.

    It's expensive because it has some silver in it and it's sleeved. What they don't tell you is that it makes such negligible difference that they're taking a lot of customers for a ride.

    The only reason to buy more expensive than usual digital cables is if you are using them in a road/event setup and they need to be more robust than usual. Yes, there are some dire quality leads out there as far as signal transmission goes, but you'd have to actually pay pennies for them to be bad enough to make a difference. This is, as we here all know, a complete waste of money.

    You'd have to be a sheep to buy one of these.

    I see your £45 USB cable and raise you a £65 13A fuse!

    How does it improve the electricity coming through my wires? And how do I notice?

    This is no ordinary 13A fuse, this is a Furutech Rhodium Plated 13A Fuse. (fleetwood mac playing in the background)

    The rhodium plating filters out "bad" electrons, then the cryogenic treatment aligns the remaining "good" electrons, and the silver fuse wire ensures that the electrons are all delivered evenly. Isn't it obvious?

    If you've just spent £65 on a fuse, you definitely claim to notice.

    Dear oh dear oh dear..... stupid is what stupid does. Unfortunately there are some incredibly stupid people dumb enough to buy stuff like this.

    I've got a silver plated nostril excavator, it really gives my boogers nice definition and clarity, compared to just using my finger.
