AudioQuest Thinks An HDMI Cable Is Worth $1100
Gosh, what do you get for someone who has already blown through their annual supply of baby seal caviar and endangered elephant steak, or need that just-right accessory for their diamond encrusted TV set? Why, the world’s most expensive HDMI cable, that’s what! It seems AudioQuest has decided to make a play for the discerning 1%er with money to burn, because their Diamond 3.3′ High-Speed HDMI cable appeared on Best Buy’s website with the absolutely
absurd AWESOME price tag of $1,095.99. That’s 1100 bucks. For an HDMI cable. And you’re worth it. Just look at the photo!
Strangely, the cable is currently sold out! Sorry, everyone else who thinks a month’s rent is well worth seeing Ratchet and Clank in full HD! Looks like you’ll have to see the same crappy HD video the poors get.
Yes, this might be a crazy typo. It might even be a joke. Whatever the case, though the insanely overpriced cable is sold out, the listing remains up on Bestbuy.com. And thank the gods for it, because the customer reviews are possibly the peak of Western satire.
My wife requested a diamond chain for Christmas, but I couldn’t find anything acceptable for less than $2000. Therefore, I was thrilled when I stumbled across this AudioQuest Diamond 3.3′ High-Speed HDMI Cable – Dark Gray/Black for the low price of only $1,095! I quickly placed my order and took advantage of the 36 month special financing.
My wife opened this Christmas morning, and was understandably blown away! I’ve never gotten a reaction like that for a present before.
This diamond cable looks beautiful around her neck. The best part is that I can also use it to view Planet Earth in HD on my 15″ CRT when she’s not wearing it. What a fabulous product!
I do not recommend buying these cheap cables. In the long term a good cable will save you money, never mind saving the trouble with low quality video and sound. A good semi-professional cable can be had starting as low as $10000, an excellent pro one at still acceptable $50000, so why bother with this one?
What’s great about it: cheap
What’s not so great: low quality
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
I love a good deal and when I saw this on sale for $1049.95 I just had to have it. I never treat myself to anything but this was it, this was my purchase. I truly believe my wife will understand why I didn’t get anyone christmas gifts this year and instead will send them a picture of me wearing my new HDMI cable. (Great card idea btw!) I really can’t wait until the 4FT version comes out as I hear its so much better. To those who have an understanding wife as I think mine will be when I show her this, I say go for it! But definitely wait for the sale, $1095 is just too much to pay.
