my specific note...(a caveat - I have not read the colume yet, just the headline on the cover)
Am I the only one that finds this headline/tease on the cover amusing "Michael Fremeer on Silly-Expensive Cables"? Is he not the guy who writes every month on 'silly expensive' phono gear...Come on, is a $10K cable any more silly-expensive than a $10K cartridge? The cartridge only has a couple of hundred in parts and manufacturing costs at the most, ever! If it was solid gold it would still have less than $1K in it. It is no more difficult to manufacture. Both categories owe a lot to superstition and simple hype.
Perhaps a better topic for a headline might be...is any audio product with under a $1K in parts really worth pricing many, many times higher?
