Read this description about their $ 20.00 cable:



RCA, XLR and USB Cables for Your Schiit

PYST was the god of drinking in Norse mythology. He’d be much better-known if he wasn’t getting schiit-faced all the time. Or, well, not really. PYST stands for Put Your Schiit Together, a set of short cables that make stacking your DAC and amp easy.

Beyond Just Technology: SuperUltraHyperTechnology

PYST cables are made from only the finest 6-nines Unobtanium™ alloy, molecularly assembled in our Alternate Universe™ reality-distortion tesseract field , using a secret geometry reverse-engineered from crashed UFOs, painstakingly smuggled out of Area 51 by deep-cover operatives. Performance is further enhanced by the use of a QuantConnect™ quantum-entangled pair of transmission interfaces, held at absolute zero by our exclusive Stasis Field™ technology. The cables are then wrapped in NanoAeroCap™, a nanotechnology-enabled aerogel anti-capacitance insulation system, featuring Fractal Interleaved Geometry™ to create negative inductance for maximum audio transmission quality.

Or, er, well . . . again, no. These are nice, high-quality cables, with solid, reliable connectors. That’s it. Hope you like them!


This is so funny, and a real poke at some cable manufacturers.....

I personally dislike their haughty attitude but to each their own.

Their attitude can come across as a little condescending sometimes, but I do like their approach that good sound doesn't have to cost a fortune.

They sort of take the BS out the audio game.

Schiit is one of the few manufacturers I trust. Of course they're condescending, they know what's up and don't want people to buy into the snake oil so prevalent in this stupid hobby.

...it's called satire...but how it differs from an SNL skit (for example)...is that they provide their version of the real world "solution"...or "antidote" to that which they are skewering or "taking the p*ss out of"...brilliant...

Why? They're just being honest in a satirical way.

Have you ever read a cable maker's description? They're laughable at best, and at worst, they get some guy to drop 5k on a piece of wire with fancy sheathing after which you can bet your ass, he goes home and will sing its praises even though there is no difference.

Well done. :D

Sounds like there's another "bang for the buck" contender in town.
