This guy is a troll and this is his skit. I didn't realize it from the first couple posts, but now it's quite obvious.

Ignore the troll.

When he bought his $1200 cable and gets no rile out of the community that'll be the last laugh.

I would definitely put that computer case in the cabinet instead. Why go through all the trouble with high end cables just to place the sub in the cabinet where it will sound horrible? I would take the time to find the proper spot for that sub if you are expecting a "high end" sound.

This is a great thread! We all got to have a few laughs at the OP's considerable ($1200 + $200) expense.

To the OP: Did the cable maker send you flowers? That would be the polite thing to do after screwing the daylights out of you . tongue.gif

Yes I wax my plasma TV's too. That's normal. The wax isn't only made for waxing cars. Well, I wax my car too, once a week.

If you decide to wax anything "else" please, no pics rolleyes.gif.

To each his own I suppose. Though this is probably one of the most whacked out set ups I've seen in terms of money spent.

I laughed so hard my side is hurting... Damn those are some beautiful cables - I wish I could afford them but after spending all my money on equipment I am pretty much broke... I have to "get by" with blue jean cables for everything...

Okay so let me get this right. You wax your cables and TV (still scratching my head on the logic of this one), you think your cables are directional, you placed your omnidirectional bass sub in an enclosed cabinet, paid 1200 for cables which experts in the field in blind testing couldn't tell the difference between a 1200.00 cable and a 10.00 cable no matter how many times the test was done (by the way both cables have been tested via oscilloscopes and guess what no noticeable difference whatsoever and finally you place two same size plasmas on opposing walls instead of using the money for the two TV's on a larger better quality TV.

Dude I want to party with you cause you obviously are smoking some grade A stuff and I want a hit.

Seriously sell the one plasma, take back the cables and invest in room acoustics and better speakers and your ears and wallet will thank you. Seriously haven't laughed this hard in a long time
