Yes I am the best . . . oh you were refering to the cable. :) But seriously, I agree that the Audioquest new stuff is extremely overpriced. The one exception is their new Coral. Not a bad price, pretty good sound. I personally own the old Lapis interconnects, and I think this stuff is some of the best. I use Emerald and Opal for my home theater. I must say, you've never heard a subwoofer until you plug it in with some Emerald (I tried it as a test one day and I just couldn't take it off, so DON'T do it unless you can afford to leave it there). I also use some of the old Sterling for speaker cable in the audio system. Great stuff, the silver and copper combo. I bought it all new, on major discount from the store because they were bringing in the new Audioquest stuff. My advice, stick with the old stuff, Lapis, Emerald and Sterling speaker cable if you can get it.
