    These little gems should look familiar to anyone who's ever installed a
    Pelco environmental housing (and probably others, as well):

    At least bushings serve a purpose, even though the
    cited product is obviously an audiophile scam. Here's
    a truly useless piece of "audiophile" junk:

    $160 to keep your speaker cables off the floor???
    How anyone can be so dumb that they fall for this crap
    and still have enough money to buy it is beyond me.

    My uncle has an extensive collection of antique glass and porcelain
    insulators from old telegraph lines... maybe I should try those.
     
  5. My uncle has an extensive collection of
    Actually, I first saw these at the Las Vegas
    CES show quite a few years ago. I picked
    one up and it was just an insulator for high
    tension electric lines. The company had
    ground a concave slot in the top to hold
    the wires in place. They were asking for
    something like $350 for a set of six or eight.

    Here's another one. A security client of
    mine back in CT bought a used pair of
    Marin-Logan speakers from a store in
    Hartford. I was installing the alarm in his
    F.L. Wright home (one of a very few in the
    area). The speakers had been sorely
    abused. The previous owner had ruined
    the woofers. He asked me what I thought
    and, ever the diplomat, I said they sounded
    like s**t. I told him they needed new
    drivers.

    The guy went down to the Stereo Shop
    (actual name) on Farmington Ave with
    these ruined speakers, asking for a refund.
    Instead they sold him a pair of new speaker
    cables the size of garden hoses. The next
    day I came in to finish the alarm installation
    and the guy was sitting there listening to
    his crappy sounding, beat up speakers with
    $800 cables connected to them. He asked
    if I didn't think the speakers sounded more
    "open". Phlbbbt!

    A trait they no doubt picked up from his wallet.
     
  7. The thing is this guy was actually a bit of a crook
    himself. He ran a chain of rent-to-own furniture
    stores that charge usurious interest rates in the
    form of "lease - purchase" agreements. His stuff
    was crap, too. He had a decent audio system --
    Macintosh amp and such. He really got taken
    for a ride on those speakers and the cables
    though. You'd think a guy like that would spot
    a con job a mile off. He'd be doubly ticked if
    he listened to my system. I have Martin-Logan
    speakers which I bought new and they're
    fabulous.

    More of a purpose than you serve, an obvious alarm DIYer scammer.

    Yet you post here looking for those exact same people, so dumb as to
    fall for a piece of crap like you (and your website(s)) and STILL have
    enough money to purchase equipment.
