Another classic audiophoolery

"Carbon-based noise dissipation" does not work well with heavy metal music, filtering out all that white or pink noise.

I was thinking about those speaker jumpers some more, ans as far as marketing these jumpers, I'm a little surprised at the poor construction quality. The BS word salad description is there (could use more BS though), but most of the audiophool stuff is at least made to look expensive. Most of the audiophool add-on things you buy are things the consumer can see, replace themselves, and admire for that psychological feel-good experience. "Look at my audiophool outlet strip - I paid $10,000 for it! It has gold-plated contacts and sits atop a marble base for sonic dampening."

These are pretty crappy looking for audiophool stuff. They aren't cut-out the same, wires are different lengths, the labels are hand-drawn by a sharpie, and the soldering is not "pretty". I'd take more time and cut the copper into a more complex shape - maybe even have some special holes punched for some stupid reason I come up with. Then I'd write up even more BS about what the shape is for and how it makes the sonic soundstage appear to expand the space in the room blah blah blah. I'd also advise the phools that you can buy more pairs at any time, and stack one on top of the other, to get even more sound expansion.

Hey this is easy ... Hmmm maybe I do need to look into this business.

What, you don't replace your power cable based on the music you listen to? Some people have no class AT ALL.
Let me guess, you also leave it on the floor and don't buy these power cable holders with spiked legs to avoid vibrations.

The carbon base is very important:  Everyone knows that pop music was better in the 1960s than in later decades.  All US audio equipment then used Allen-Bradley carbon composition resistors, that are no longer manufactured.  Coincidence:  I think not.

Seems to me that these cables affect only carbon-based life forms. Your standard Horta, for example, is not amused by any of this.
