Product Review : Fuxonic King Audiophile Cables

A valued reader suggested that we next review some Audiophile-grade cables. Today we're proud to bring you the Fuxonic King range of cables.

Fuxonic King : Experience massive sound with our cables.

Audiophile cables are utterly beyond parody. All we can do is to point you to the write up for Nordost ODIN interconnect cables: a snip at only £12,260.00 for a 1m pair. Their specs are as impressive as the price:
  • INSULATION: High purity class 1.003 extruded Fluorinated Ethylene Propylene
  • CONSTRUCTION: Precision Dual Micro Mono-Filament and TSC design
  • CONDUCTORS: 8 x 23 AWG extruded silver over 99.99999% OFC 
  • PROPAGATION DELAY: 90% speed of light 
  • OVERALL SHIELD COVERAGE: 100% Total Coverage 
OMG 90% of the speed of light! Surely electrons were never intended to propagate at such speeds. These cables could rip apart the fabric of space and time. Does the TSA know?


It's easy for us all to sneer at audiophile excesses, but the real purpose of these products is to set a benchmark for the upper bounds of stupidity. This allows Joe-Sixpack to walk into Best Buy and buy a piece of the dream: by paying a couple of hundred bucks for gold-plated HDMI cables. He can then invite some friends over and show off to them the blackness of his blacks and the silence of his silences.


If you want a piece of the dream, click the link and treat yourself to a little every-day audiophile luxury.

  5. Or I get them from Meritline for $6 a two-pack. Works just as well. For silence, I prefer earplugs. For blackness, This

  7. I'd love to show people the blackness of my blacks. But then, I might get charged for indecent exposure.

    Viva Sucio indeed.
