For those of you not familiar with the OP he tosses out these troll posts on a regular basis. Do us all a favor, don't feed the troll, otherwise he'll just keep coming back for more.
Yoda, you see at first when I saw Patrick's thread demonstrating his $80,000 cables I thought it was joke. But after more checking it started to believe it. I now know this isn't a joke. They are real, and are made for ultra-high performance in sound. You would think power cord has absolutely no connection to the sound quality but it is true about performance power cords having impact on sound quality after checking out various audiophile forums and what people say there. They actually have larger impact on sound than the high-end audio cables people run in the system... especially right from wall outlet to the powerstrip (power distributor) is the most critical part. And after checking out all of Patrick's videos, I am in love with him and his cables and his coconut-audio company. They make cables that are multiple levels beyond what other top manufacturers make. And of course, I am not trolling.

And I really like how the ends of the power cords
are slathered in dried Play-Doh.
Indeed. They are built tough. The build quality is no joke. All that money does some good on the cable.

No I'm not a troll. The difference is that I am more passionate with the cables than many other folks. These aftermarket power cords (not only coconut-audio but many other cable manufacturers such as Audioquest, Wireworld, Kimber, Nordost, Cardas, MIT, Ridge Street Audio, Synergistic Research, Shunyata Research, etc etc etc etc etc.....). But I am truly fascinated by Coconut-Audio.... I was planning to upgrade my XLR audio cables to Audioquest Niagara ($2000) for my speakers but I am gonna have to postpone that and get the power cord from Coconut-Audio next. $2500 for a $25000 cable, man that's a smokin good deal.
Their company is fairly new if I understood correctly, but they have gone though over 10 years of research in making these cables and now they out to the public to show us their stuff. Get the cables while you can. Later down the road these cable prices will go back up to suggested retail.
