Think I'll start making cables under the name Veblen Audio. What'cha think?
Audio Arteries??
Since they're marketed to the well heeled, taste notwithstanding, maybe something like Vulgar Audio would sell. It's the lowest denominator I could think of, ripe for these times.

All the best,

well considering cable lifters that cost likely less than a dollar to make selling for hundreds and audiophile grade bubble levels.  yes i'd think that snob appeal plays a big part
