I think some cables are just a little too expensive.

A while back a shop I did business with carried Transparent Audio Cables. They were so expensive it was obscene. They did sound good, but you had to move up from the bottom to the more idiotically pricey models to start to feel the magic. It had been several years ago and I wanted to check in on my old friends at Transparent Audio. This is their top of the line speaker cable. Now if you don't have a problem with this whole cable thing, this might push you over the edge. I can't imagine a speaker that would need such a cable. Wilson? Rockport? What amp? You can buy a nice luxury vehicle for the same price as a pair of speaker cables? Nelson Pass would be embarrassed to see these monstrosities on one of his amplifiers.

Thanks for the link, I just purchased two!  My wife is going to hate me now.

Wait, are you saying that story was true?
No contradiction. Participation doesn’t get a trophy. Participation is an opportunity and sometimes in the pursuit of such the ball doesn’t bounce your way. 
Grow up.
I'd just like to get the inside scoop (i.e. what really happened) as to how they arrive at this MRP.  My suspicion is that it's more the spaghetti/ceiling method than careful cost analysis.
