Mentioned this at the end of a thread in the Avaya forum since it seemed to have taken that direction off topic. Too good to waste where nobody will see it so I figure I'll start a new thread here.

If any of you are familiar with Monster Cable and other audiophile snake oil you're gonna love this-

https://www.machinadynamica.com/machina44.htm

Don't forget, some guy named Tom says they work big time. What they fail to mention is that Tom had a lobotomy a few months ago.

Be sure to look around the site to see what other useful things they have. Take a look at the Timex alarm clock but remember- other brands may be substituted without notice. :rofl:

I have another site that sells $150 gold plated audio grade duplex receptacles but I think these guys have them beat.

If you ever had any doubt that people are stupid just remember that these guys probably do a great business catering to them.

That's unbelievable. I guess with people spending 5-6 figures on home theaters, thirty bucks for a face plate is nothing. If anyone really believes that a simple plastic duplex receptacle plate will improve sound quality, I will sell them for half the price.

They always told me there is one born every minute. :rofl: :rofl:

That would be against the law in most countries.

I would even go the extra mile and install them for $30 a plate. Double gang goes for $65 :banana:

Imagine a nice upscale custom home...say 5500 sq ft. receptacles, switches, cable/phone/data, A/V, etc. Average 100+ plates.

2 a week for 5 years and I would retire wink

I don't know about the wall plates but monster cable works great and is worth the money in the right application. I suppose a wall plate could resonate with bass but those .25 foam gaskets should work.

If it was built in the last 10 years don't expect it to work right.

Their are plenty of products out that are half the price of monster cable and do a great Job. Higher end cables will give you a better imige and better sound but I think Monster is out of control they make a nice product but are way over priced. Check out https://www.bluejeanscable.com/ I ordered an HDMI cable from them, I use it to go from my high def DTV receiver to my Samsung DLP, It works great. It was around $60.00 cheeper then monster and the quility is quit comprable

You gotta like this one . Years ago I worked with a guy who saved 25 pr floor dropping's . He would fancy sheath it , then attach gold plated Connectors on the ends . He sold it as monster cable . People thought it was the best thing since sliced bread . smile
