Just read the glowing review of the Synergistic Research Galileo Cables by Jonathan Valin.
While I could make some generic comments such as:
- Hi-End reviewers in all magazines, every month manage to find the best component they have heard (until next month)
- Why can a component, especially a cable, cost more than a car
- Why is the "science" behind all of this typically shrouded in mystery and in many cases involves quantum level alterations
The above have all be covered before many times so this post is about another point.
What I find interesting is these appear, from a marketing/packaging perspective, to try and upstage MIT cables with its degree of complexity, cost and form factor… and they have done very well in this regard.
So putting aside whether they are in fact the worlds best cable, they are in fact the worlds most impractical cable.
For my system, I would need fourteen of these (7 interconnect pairs and not including speaker cables )…. Where the hell would I fit them all?... let alone the fourteen power outlets I would need
Even if I had the money, Synergistic Research wouldn’t be getting it with such an ugly and impractical product.
To see what just 2 pairs of interconnects look like see the link below (noting that this shows only HALF of each cable... see the diagram below the picture)
