2.0 out of 5 stars Great cable, but too fast., June 23, 2008
This review is from: Denon AKDL1 Dedicated Link Cable (Discontinued by Manufacturer) (Electronics)
Transmission of music data at rates faster than the speed of light seemed convenient, until I realized I was hearing the music before I actually wanted to play it. Apparently Denon forgot how accustomed most of us are to unidirectional time and the general laws of physics. I tried to get used to this effect but hearing songs play before I even realized I was in the mood for them just really screwed up my preconceptions of choice and free will. I'm still having a major existential hangover.

Would not purchase again.

I used these cables to plug into my router before I even thought about ordering them, and just the idea of them allowed me to read your comments before you even thought about them. Amazing cables, but I've seen better.

Denon's mastery of Worm-Hole technology has really messed things up now. The meaninglessness of existence and the vacuity of thoughts of self are transparent to all now and we have no recourse to a universe in which we are forever doomed to wander under the compulsion of belief in our free will while simultaneously being unable to alter the reality of our actions over which we have no control yet must feel unmitigated guilt and anguish for the suffering we knowingly cause in the fabric of space-time.

I was thinking about getting one, now I realise that I'd better not. I'm so absent minded that I'd probably forget to turn the music on after it started playing, and break the universe!

Actually, since it's reacting to a moment that would've occurred had it *not* upset you, then the music you hear is the music you'd play if you weren't startled. The issue is, faster than light doesn't mean faster than time: it just means it's working so swiftly that your thought and all other *noticed* physical events are slower and more easily aimed at. Time itself results from interactions and if interactions can occur faster than light so they remain interactions and hence not outside Time. If Physicists are calling something Time that isn't an interaction of any sort, they are dabbling in uselessness.

Forutnately, the speed of these cables made it such that I could hear them before I actually made the decision to buy them.

I can hear no music playing at this time, so thankfully I can assume that I will never purchase these overpriced cables in the future.

A recent study suggests that Tylenol is effective in treating Existential Angst. You should try that, but don't exceed 4 Grams per 24 hours.
