Reviewing the $10,000 Ethernet Cable

AudioQuest sells a $10,000 Ethernet cable.

The people who buy this cable know why they need it, and it’s well worth the extra investment.

“Sure,” some may say, “it’s just data,” but the ones and zeros that arrive at the end of this cable completely transcend binarity. The discerning dataphile will immediately recognize a truth that goes far beyond traditional one-ness, conveying the deeper essence of “true”. Ordinary cables throw out flat, unbalanced ones that have no soul, but when your data comes streaming out the end of this cable, you’ll  notice a new level of warm certainty that you’ve never felt with any other interface.

Zeros are, quite frankly, the blackest, deepest, emptiest zeros of any cable we’ve ever tested. When this cable gives you a zero, you can feel the falseness to the very core of your being.

When our testers were evaluating this cable, an odd thing happened. Slowly, they felt their eye diagrams get heavy and begin to close. A deep, restful calm came over their BERT scope display, and they found themselves backing down the transfer rate and just enjoying the ride.

That’s an experience no other Ethernet cable could even comprehend.

Five Stars – our highest rating.

SensorTile. Box - A Ready to Go IoT Node

Sponsored by Mouser Electronics and ST Microelectronics

In the highly competitive IoT market, getting your idea to the prototype stage as quickly as possible is critical. But, designing non-differentiated things like connectivity, power supplies, sensor interfaces, and so forth soaks up valuable design time. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Thiago Reis from STMicroelectronics about SensorTile Box - a ready-to-go IoT node development kit that’s just waiting for your great IoT idea.
