Saw it on Audiogon. A power cord that sells new for $5,600..(Yes, I said five-thousand-sixhundred dollars) for only $1,900.

I'm in the wrong business. There's got to be a way to get in on the, "I don't know what to do with my money, so I'll give it to ahhh...., YOU." Unbelievable. I'm sure I can make a really techy-looking power cord for less than $30.

I need to dig through my basement. There must be something similar that I can sell for a few grand to the right person. How about an oriental S. Korean painting vintage 1975.

I believe selling body parts is illegal.

Buddy, it's great to bring bargains like that to the attention of "audiophiles" looking to "upgrade" their power cords. Some undoubtedly have been saving up for this one , being unaware that "The best AC cord on the market!" is available for much less.

I misread the above and pictured something more along the lines of this clip.

There must be something similar I can sell....to the right person. How about Orientals?

Oh, I didn't know there was a $7,500 power cord, John. I don't know. Personally, I think anyone spending more than $5,000 on a power cord can't hear the difference and they're just wasting their money. wink

Just so you know, it's PI to use the word, "Oriental." It has gone the way of "Negroe." The currently (of the moment)preferred term is "Asian." That all OK with you "Monarch Huggers?"

Changing the word would have rendered my post irrelevant.

Speaking of irrelevant, that is also how I consider the monarchy. The concept of entitlement based on bloodline is just bizarre to me and is proof that Mankind's capacity to create technology has developed far faster than our common sense.

I bear them no ill will, but their time is long past. Bob is my leader now. Well, Bob and Barney from "How I Met your Mother" and that guy who tattooed the Zune logo on his arm.
