I guess you haven't heard of Russ Andrews.

A mere £17,800 ($23,000) for a single 1.5 metre speaker cable.

1.5m too short? A 3.5metre cable is still a bargain at £37,800 ($50,000) - 
double that for a pair of speakers.

we passed a shop catering to these folks with a monstrous speaker cable with a 
price tag of more than $1,000 (in Swiss Francs). The cable couldn't have been 
20 ft long. I took a photo of it, but managed to lose the camera on the flight

mainstream stuff of moderate cost, and tell them to use the money they've saved 
to buy records by Billie Holiday and Lester Young.73, Jim
