This crazily-priced Ethernet cable will cost you a cool $10k

Interested in the best sound possible? This rediculously-priced cable will set you back a cool $10,000 from retailers

In the same league as Monster and other companies offering high-priced standard 3.5mm audio, Ethernet or HMDI options that are no better than your standard $8 item - this $10,000 Audioquest Ethernet cable apparently provides a solid design, "ensuring no critical data is lost."




If you're worried about your audio data traveling in the wrong direction, this "directional" cable is apparently only meant to be plugged in one way. Alongside this amazing feature, it's claimed that this product will also provide you with speeds of 100 Gbps across distances greater than 300 feet!


The cable has been pulled from e-shelves since receiving some bad press commenting on the crazy price (wonder why?), however thanks to website archiving you can still lay your eyes on the original page.


It's a good thing that this device isn't tailored towards computers, it would really suck having to have one cable for your download and one for upload. If you were really dedicated and rich - two cables would provide you with some crazy fast speeds... apparently.


Although this edition has been removed, Hot Hardware has informed us that the 10 foot version is available through Amazon, for a casual price of $2,194.75. There's also a 52.49 foot HDMI cable for a low price of $13,499.75 if you're looking to set up a home theater system.
