Snake oil

Recommended Posts

On a more serious note, does anyone genuinely believe these products really make a difference to the SQ of a system/components?

There are some that believe, and some that don’t. It is normally referred to as a “Cable thread”.

I didn't see this as a cable thread in the 'oh yes it is,  oh no it isnt' sense. It appears to me as a cable manufactorer simply having a joke and using it to say 'our cable are honest good value gear at a fair price e.g. no snake oil. However, if you want something spectacular then what about my brand of snake oil which is proven to cure all audio ills by just applying a few drops. Hurry it's going fast.

It won't be coming to my address. If you want to smear it on your (hi-fi) bits, that's your decision.

So, nobody made it to the bottom of the page that was linked where it says "This is a joke" then?

You don't smear on a product of this quality. You carefully apply it using the ergonomically designed application device (£39.05 extra).

Or even the post earlier in this thread Dave, from the guy who runs the website linked, who clearly states that:

“Obviously the Snake Oil is a bit of a pi$$ take and for comical purposes only. Don't buy it unless you feel like throwing away $1,000 AUD lol”
