The reviews of the item are priceless though:
By John L. (Border of Wasteland, Former USA) This connection isn't sound. If my calculations are correct, it should be sometime around 2007 for whomever is reading this. DO NOT USE THESE CABLES. Something... happens with them. Something came through, something from somewhere else. We were overrun in days, not many of us are left. WE LIVE UNDERGROUND! ONLY YOU CAN STOP IT NOW. SAVE US. DO NOT USE THESE CABLES.By Michael McKinley - A caution to people buying these: if you do not follow the "directional markings" on the cables, your music will play backwards. Please check that before mentioning it in your reviews.

I installed one of these cables between my gigabit ethernet switch and my Canon Pixma 6700 color printer. I know it's not a sanctioned use, but I was looking for the ultimate in speed and color fidelity. I'm freaky that way.
The first time I downloaded a picture to the printer over this cable, the bits moved so fast the printer collapsed into a naked singularity, right there in my office.
Since then, I can't find the cat, and my entire set of VAX/VMS 4.7 documentation (DEC Will Rise Again!) (Mmmmm, orangey!) has gone missing.
Please, for the love of God, please, do not use these cables! The very existence of Earth may depend on your decision!By Daniel A. KobloshAfter I took delivery of my $500 Denon AKDL1 Cat-5 uber-cable, Al Gore was mysteriously drawn to my home, where he pronounced that Global Warming had been suspended in my vicinity.
Yes, I had perfect weather: no flooding, no tornadoes, the exact amount of rain necessary, and he pronounced sea levels exactly right and that they were not going to rise within five miles of my house.
Additionally, my cars began achieving 200 mpg and I didn't even need gasoline. I was able to put three grams of cat litter into the tank and drive forever.
What's more, the atmosphere inside my home became 93% oxygen and virtually no carbon dioxide. In fact, I now exhale oxygen.
One heck of a cable.
Didn't notice any improvement in audio quality though.
Saw it on Antiques Roadshow last night. All the new cables use mithril, high purity copper is a joke.
GB FTLBy James Coursey (San Francisco, CA United States) - With most cables, music is bright yellow dots. For some reason, music played through this cable is lime green triangles. It must be a factor of the high-purity copper wire. If you like lime green triangles, you will love this cable. If not, I would recommend a standard purity copper wire.By C. W. Garrison "lan10base2" (Muskogee, OK) My kitty was hit by a speeding car in my neighborhood. Racked with grief and left with no other choice I plugged one end of the cables into my dedicated link input and the other into my dead kitty. The kitty immediately sprang back to life! I was so overjoyed I went to my family burial plot and dug up my dead Grandmother. Over the protests of the groundskeepers at the cemetery I plugged the cable into her lifeless corpse. As soon as the plug made contact with her Granny popped straight up. She now lives with me in my apartment. Her incessant babbling and stench have kept me from having intimate relations with a woman for over 2 years now. Do not buy these dammed cables they will ruin your sex life.By K. Michael Derby "College administrator and ... (Florida)
So I shelled out $500 for the Denon AKDL1 Dedicated Link Cable due to its "superior heat resistance, weather resistance, and anti-aging properties." I've had it on me ever since, letting it dangle around my neck. Now granted, it has raised my status. People stare at me, no doubt impressed and even envious that I have the Denon cable. But "superior heat resistance, weather resistance, and anti-aging properties"? Not on your life. I walk in the rain with the cable around my neck and I still get wet. Yesterday, a hot July day down here in Florida, I felt so confident in the "superior heat resistance" of the cable that I walked around dressed as if I was on an Arctic expedition. Oddly enough I still sweated and passed out. So much for "superior heat resistance." As for the "anti-aging properties", well I am still getting older with each passing day. What a gyp.By Matthew Graves No, no, no, no, no. This sucker's electrical. But I need a nuclear reaction to generate the 1.21 gigawatts of electricity I need.
There's loads more reviews but I can't be assed copy, pasting & formatting them all.
