this cable was just amazing. I don't even own an ipod or even pretend to understand itunes, but this cable changed my life. i can close my eyes and listen to what i imagine to be the best thing in the world. the noise floor is very dBspl, it makes high frequencies low and low frequencies high. even the traffic driving by my house sounds better just having this cable in the room. i was happy to see the pricing at such a reasonable level. I had expected to pay double if not four times this amount (I had taken on a second full time job to help pay back the loan -- but now I know.... it was worth it). i hope to eventually find other ways to use this cable, but for now I leave it hanging from my ceiling for everyone to marvel. if you love music, movies, long walks on the beach, or even the color silver, I don't see how you could keep living life without this product.
