I don't want to sound rude but I fail to see how pure cotton and Douglas Fir cardboard will make electric signals transfer better.

I will agree that aesthetics are nice in open systems where everything is seen and that it can be important to make you feel good about your system. Cheap Radioshack red and white RCA cables can look very undesirable and I will pay a bit more to get a better look and physical quality

However that being said, I personally, would not buy from this company as their marketing has gone to great lengths to try and trick me into thinking that their cables sound sooo much better that I will be astounded or 'need a diaper' as they so elegantly mention. My own practicality is offended by such marketing tactics and I do my best to not support such companies.

Just expressing my opinion. In the end, you should do what is in your own means to make you happy, long term, about any decision. My happiness is irrelevant to your system.

I know that I'm probably about the only Monster lover around here, but so far, my best odd and end stuff has been made by Monster.

The Audiophile Pricetag will literally transform your cheap or giveaway interconnects into sonic marvels costing thousands of times more!

The Audiophile Pricetag is no ordinary pricetag. It's hand-crafted from the finest materials available.

The heavy-gauge, 99.9999% pure cotton string utilizes a proprietary twisting method which provides a superior connection to your existing cable.

The manila card stock is made custom to our specifications from virgin stands of Douglas fir from the pacific northwest and is hand cut in our factory using techniques hundreds of years old with the price hand-written by one of our many craftspersons, signed and dated on the back of the tag.

Our patented hole reinforcement technology assures that your Audiophile Pricetag will last a lifetime, even under continuous use.

Best of all, the Audiophile Pricetag is being offered at the special introductory price of just $29.95!

Imagine getting the performance of a $5,000 cable for less than pennies on the dollar!

A bit tight on cash? No problem! Kludge Research, Inc. offers zero interest, six month financing. And if you act now, we'll defer your payments until January 2003!

And for the Do-It-Yourselfer, the Audiophile Pricetag is also available in kit form at the substantially reduced price of just $19.95!

Each kit comes with a pre-cut tag, hole reinforcer, string and a tube of glue. The 23 page instruction manual is clearly written and includes more than a dozen illustrations walking you step-by-step from preparation to installation.

Let's hear what just one of our many satisfied customers has to say about this revolutionary new technology:

I was skeptical at first. But that ended just a few measures into the first song when I realized that I'd soiled my pants! You should offer a diaper with this thing! It's THAT good! And if you don't believe me, just moments later my wife who has no interest at all in this audiophile stuff telephoned me from the neighbor's house three doors down and asked me if I'd changed something in my system!



You guys with more money than sense!

Shoe laces work just as well.

Just a quick update - i ordered a pair of cables from BlueJeans on sunday, they dropped me an email monday saying they had been shipped. they got here tuesday at 2:30pm from memphis. Now thats service.


As for the cables , they seem to be of good quality. I tested the resistance and they tested quite good. All in all quite happy. Next set i will try from the place alex suggested. One thing i do like about the ones i got from monoprice was the ability to tighten the cable once pushed onto the rca connector.

Btw if you like locking interconnects try the locking banana plugs from Blue Jeans cable for your speakers. Very nice stuff. Well executed design.

I went with the LC-1 since i did not want any more influence than necessary from the cable on my cartridge.
