I keep saying I have seen it all (interconnets, power cables, speaker wire, vibration disks, funny ink on the ouside of CD's, directional fuses), but now I have really seen it all.

I simply can't stop laughing at this. Who in their right mind would even come up with this crap, yet alone buy it.

Seen it before. That's my favorite piece of overpriced audio equipment, bar none.

Adrian, C37 is the special patented process which is responsible for $484 of the $485 cost.

Edit: okay I bothered to google it, and here's the rather nonsensical description for C37 lacquer.

Holy crap. This guy wants me to paint lacquer all over my speakers, electronic components and cds? Then wait 10 weeks to hear a difference?

Perhaps it was on page two, but the seller of this stuff obviously missed an opprtunity to have me varnish my earlobes on a regular basis.
