The best feature of these cables is in the comments section.http://www.bestbuy.com/site/AudioQue...ustomerreviews
Here is an example or two.
Good but not great...
"I must say, I was a bit disappointed in this cable. I saved up for 6 months to buy it. (I work at Wendy's so I don't make a lot of money). When I first plugged it into my dvd player, I was impressed at how well it fit into the socket. It's probably from the gold plating. When I went to hook up the other end to my 36" Dynex, I was so angry to find it only had a DVI input. So I bought a DVI to HDMI adapter at Radio Shak, and was able to make it work. I couldn't really tell much of a difference between my Monster cables, but it probably just takes a while to get used to. I would recommend it to a friend.
this deal is smoking
"I was amazed this cable was still in stock. I use it to power my 14.4 inch crt because i can't afford an lcd. I was initially concerned about the cost but once i did my research and found out this cable is manufactured with the mineral "doesnotexistium" i knew i had to have one. When its not in use on my crt i use it to hold the drapes back. I have ordered 5 more. We have a lot of drapes."
A few years ago there was a USB cable that Denon was selling for something like $499 to connect a DVD player to their reciever ! It was featured on Amazon.com and the comments were so damn funny that it became a feature at AVSforum. It got so out of hand with the comments by people that either Amazon or Denon finally had to shut down the comments for a while on being able to review it on Amazon.com
It still has a life of its own now.
Just google Amazon.com and Denon AKDL1 Dedicated Link Cable. You will be more entertained by the comments on this $499 USB cable than if you listened to music via the cable.http://usa.denon.com/us/Product/Page...1-2a63642a6206
"Denon's 1.5 meter (59 in.) proprietary ultra premium Denon Link cable was designed for the audio enthusiast. Made from high purity copper wire and high performance connection parts, the AK-DL1 will bring out all the nuances in digital audio reproduction from any of our Denon DVD players with the Denon Link feature connected to a Denon Link enabled Denon A/V receiver. The AK-DL1 employs high level tin-bearing alloy shielding not typically available in commercial cabling, to eliminate data loss caused by noise. Additionally, signal directional markings are provided for optimum signal transfer. Attention to detail when building this cable was used by employing high quality insulation and woven jacketing to reduce vibration and to add durability. Rounded plug levers help prevent breakage."
