I have to get some of my ideas into production, there is too much easy money out there.

The obvious problem is here:
 Quote:
As far as the positive half of the signal is concerned, the Bridge is simply a pass-through device. When inserted into the Bridge, the central prong of an interconnect cable’s connector is linked directly to the same part on the Bridge. It’s on the negative (or return) half of the audio signal that the Bridge goes to work.

Any cable which has a "return" or a "direction" in part of its description gets an automatic BS mark. Audio signals are alternating current, there's no return, the electron flow reverses back and forth several thousand times a second. There's no point to beefing up one side of the connection over the other. The "ground" especially on RCA is important to have a specific geometry to prevent the cable from picking up noise. Moving the ground from a surrounding shield to a parallel wire is asking for trouble in noisy environments.

But how could you live with yourself? I hope you're comfortable laying on those piles of cash taken from the gullible and ignorant.

Aww, now you're making me feel guilty just thinking about it.
