Of course, you know all of that is worthless without a super-dee-duper AC cord
A bargain at $199 for a 1 meter cord... because we all know that
electrons won't travel properly through a low-quality AC cable.

BTW, apparently there are several companies that sell AC wall outlets
in the $100 to $200 range with a straight face. The above linked
"Music Direct" included. Pure weapons-grade Balonium, that one...
