I might not go for $10 000 speaker cables but good towel might be worth the asking price at some point. It may sell for less than list price, too.

$400 for a towel without a model must, in a long run, be much cheaper than $400 for the towel with a model. All of a sudden, those $10 000 cables do not seem so exorbitantly expensive.

How much was the boat?

@geoffkait  Garden and Gun? Its a southern thing. If you'e not from here, don't try to understand it. I live it. But not like in the magazine.

uberwaltz, model not included. Can't say she was all that pretty anyway.

glupson, if I recall it was one of those restored wooden runabouts that cost the same as a Ferrari. Or maybe it was a sailboat. Or a dock. I threw the magazine down after seeing $400 towel. 
I guess price is relative. I run 2.0 mtr Jorma Statement sc’s which are $23.3kUS (circa $32kAUD), but in the context of my system they make sense.

Absolutely! We must protect ourselves against the, ahem, liberal agenda.
Yes, Garden and Gun, Field and Stream & AK, Home Design & Semi...etc.   Happy Stocking!
Folks complain about pricing of everything, so it seems like we don’t need threads like this. But folks like complaining, so be it. Did we learn anything from this group cathartic event?

And how much is too much for any given aspect of an audio system? Some have no issue about spending $20k for a Rockna DAC, but complain about spending a given amount for a speaker cable. Everyone’s got priorities.

Arguably, the input power lines and the listening room acoustics are the areas one should spend their money, because those two areas dictate to a large extent how an audio system performs. But mostly crickets are expressed about those priorities.
