You can keep your stinkin' space elevator, all I want for Christmas are Carbon Nanofiber interconnects from Stealth Audio. Forged from solid carbon nanofibers, there is absolutely NO METAL anywhere in this cable. Even the custom RCA plugs and connector jackets are entirely nanoed-up.

Surely to be the talk of 2006, keep reading for more on the Stealth Nanofibers.

Not satisfied with nanofiber wire and connectors, Stealth molds the nanofiber strands into the shape of the RCA pin, thus eliminating the nasty metal solder normally used and achieving a truly pure signal path.

So what's the point other than bragging to your nano-less friends? Metal cables, no matter how well they're shielded, are constantly bombarded with RFI and EMI interference. When that happens, your cables turn into big radio antennas. Yeah, bad. "Nano" is not only the most overused word of the year, but also inherently immune to sonic corruption.

Price? Lord only knows. The Stealth Indra with its amorphous alloy wire (freakishly good) go for $5750/meter. Expect the Nanofiber to be more expensive. Stealth has been on the bleeding edge of cable design for some time and there's no smoke and mirrors with these guys, their cables are some of the most highly regarded.

We'll keep you updated on the Stealth Nanofibers as we find out more. That lucky muggle 6Moons Srajan has a beta pair and posted his thoughts and initial glowing reactions here.

"Metal cables, no matter how well they're shielded, are constantly bombarded with RFI and EMI interference" If it conducts electricity then it receives EMI regardless of material. Same principle
