Expensive? Not like Diamond but there are cheaper cables - not better, cheaper. And like tattoo's good one's aren't cheap and cheap ones aren't good. Forest uses finely polished synthetic Polymer fiber mean low timing (jitter) errors and every bit gets through. Beautiful connectors in a nice blue-green striped PVC cable.
