What was I Thinking

I woke up early today,

Sitting here just browsing I notice Best Buy has Rocket 11 @30' for $99. I'm thinking ok I have a gift card to cover that. I started looking at bananas and cable pants. Then start looking at maybe making some rocket bi-wire cables with some Furez or Monoprice 12/4.

Then the coffee kicks in, I have AQ type 4, What am I thinking.
When I was a kid my parents told me to turn it down. Now I'm an adult and my kids tell me to turn it down.

    I like my AQ wires. Have not had the best of luck with monoprice slim hdmi. Have two dead ones on the shelf.

    I have some extra AQ Type 4 that I'm going to use to replace the wires in the cabinets of my rta12b.

    I get the opposite effect when I drink coffee.
    Less restraint, because the Lego Movie song starts playing in my head after the first sip...

    And then later, when it wears off...

    It is kind of interesting looking cable. The winding, and then the separate twists into different jackets. I'd be curious to try some, too, but just full range.

    My OCD would have me swapping wires way to much.

    I've been meaning to contact them for replacements. Just have not got around to it.

    I did replace a 35 ft Emotiva HDMI with the MonoPrice HOSS active hdmi at 35 or 40ft. Could not be happier with it. Picture was immediately better.
