    What's the most outrageously priced -- and obviously super high quality ;) -- component cable anyone has seen.

    Who makes it, and how much per metre?

    Dunno. But the best conductor I think is Rhodium, insanely expensive. So any cable with Rhodium plated/Rhodium strands would be pretty expensive.

    Rhodium costs about $1,000/troy oz.

    Black Rhodium do a digital incon that is about £1000. So I'd guess 3 of those for component use would be classed as quite expensive......

    Because as audiophiles run out of stuff at CD, AMP Turntable & 2 speakers AVphiles or Videophiles heep going. where A (audiophile~) nutts spend £15K on a turntable, V (videophile) nuts are just getting into hi end CRT PJ its a case of where you waste your money. You can spend £100,000 on a S/H 35mm PJ if you want one. what can A spend £100,000 on in one go????? V can waste so much more money:D :D :D
