About to spend my katana money

On some better speaker cables for my main system. I am not at all unhappy with it in it's current state but my second system with the 707's is catching up and I can't abide by that. Does anyone think that I am putting myself at risk of a ninja attack? I do, this is exactly the kind of thing that always happens when I buy something that I don't really need.

    I think you should avoid pointy and sharp objects at all times.

    The cables will be much safer.
  • I got some Douglas Connection Speakers Cables around 2 years ago and it was my first pair of real cables. Previous speaker wire was monster or Best Buy stuff on a spool. It was an aha moment for me that cables do make a difference. I have since purchased his ICs RCAs and XLRs and been very happy with them. Great customer service. Since I was unfamiliar with speaker cables and connectors he put together Options for Good, Better and Best. I went with Good.

    Good This is the best bang for the buck base speaker cable we sell. It's the same cable we use for our 9AWG regular speaker cables.

    50/50 Bruce. I hear Sho Kosugi's put together a new gang, and they're out looking for Lee Van Cleef's old associates. There's a pretty good chance they won't be able to track you down, but then again...

    +1 on DouglasConnection's Furez. What're you running now?

    You could probably make a good defense with some 8ft bi-amp/bi-wire in a pinch.
    I disabled signatures.

    Anytime I decide to buy something semi-expensive that I don't currently "need", something in the house or car breaks. That's true at least 99% of the time.

    Stop worrying about ninjas... while you were busy being paranoid, two Navy Seal teams positioned their sniper locations to cover all your potential exits.... :p

    @nooshinjohn I know that but what they don't know is that they are watching a hologram and the tree they are sitting in is me disguised as a tree.

    They aren't in a tree, but they have asked for a tree removal service to clear some of their sightlines. BTW, a military tree removal service is usually an A-10 Warthog.


    RUN!!!!
