World's most priciest RJ45 cable?

wowI stumbled upon this really awesome proprietary ultra premium Denon Link cable while looking for a Denon headphone. It's really just a simple cat-5 RJ45, it's not even cat-6. And it's available for a bargain price of just $499! For those lazy to read through the link, here is what Denon has to say about it:

Denon's 1.5 meter (59 in.) proprietary ultra premium Denon Link cable was designed for the audio enthusiast.  Made from high purity copper wire and high performance connection parts, the AK-DL1 will bring out all the nuances in digital audio reproduction from any of our Denon DVD players with the Denon Link feature connected to a Denon Link enabled Denon A/V receiver.  The AK-DL1 employs high level tin-bearing alloy shielding not typically available in commercial cabling, to eliminate data loss caused by noise.  Additionally, signal directional markings are provided for optimum signal transfer.  Attention to detail when building this cable was used by employing high quality insulation and woven jacketing to reduce vibration and to add durability. Rounded plug levers help prevent breakage.

Hey it even comes with Downloads and manuals, in case you get stuck installing it.

Update: I recently read in another blog post that this cable has an Amazon detail page. Is it good? If you thought the Tuscan Whole Milk were golden, wait until you read some of these reviews posted for Denon. It's hard to pick a favorite from many of those gems, but I am leaning towards this review, and the 4 pages of comments posted. Yes, 4 frikking pages of nerd jokes.
