    Default Are 1K+ power cords over the top?

    I've just been browsing over at Audigon and I've seen outrageously priced power cords. Some auctions starting at $1 for a power cord that retails for $1750 like this one: http://cgi.audiogon.com/cgi-bin/auc....96033&auc&3&4& ???? I mean, what is this thing made out of? Space age, super secret stuff? Do people actually buy these for the retail prices?

    Don't get me wrong, I donít mind spending money for good cables but these prices seem out there. Am I alone on this feeling?

    damn. I guess it all depends on what you're hooking it up to. I wouldn't put that on a $800 receiver, that's for sure. But if I had a $10,000 amp running some $10,000 speakers with a $4000 CDP... etc etc... sure. Why not.

    Home Setup: Sony VPL-VW85 Projo, 92" Stewart Firehawk, Pioneer Elite SC-65, PS3, RTi12 fronts, CSi5, FXi6 rears, RTi6 surround backs, RTi4 height, MFW-15 Subwoofer.

    Car Setup: OEM Radio, RF 360.2v2, Polk SR6500 quad amped off 4 Xtant 1.1 100w mono amps, Xtant 6.1 to run an eD 13av.2, all Stinger wiring and Raammat deadener.

    Over the top? Yes. Worth it? Of course not. That's ridiculous.

    Will they sell close to the imaginary retail price? I will guess nowhere close, but someone might just have nothing to do in the following week but to spend money
