The Sort Lift® is a unique and extremely effective cable support designed to enhance the sonic performance of loudspeaker cables, power cords, and interconnects. While other cable lifters in the industry are only concerned with doing just that—lifting the cable, the Sort Lift® not only elevates audio cables from the ground, but it employs a patent pending, Floating Spring Design. This design minimizes the contact that cables have with the apparatus while reducing boundary effects without negatively affecting the resonant properties of the cables themselves.

$600 a pair

$600 a pair? And you probably need to place them every 2 or 3 feet, so if you have 8 ft speaker cables you would need 3 or 4 pairs of these. I think I'll stick with stacks of hockey pucks.  :D

Not saying they won't work or that nobody should buy them, but at that price I think they are looking at a very small target market, even among audiophiles.

  Whatever happened to Harvey Rosenbergs' tweak ? Bakery string with a copper wire loop hung from clg. works extremely well.
   Same for powercords. Try it it works.

I'm not much for those kinds of gizmos and for that price especially.  As to Harvey's tweak, I may fall off a ladder and hurt myself.... But I am curious about a situation where there's a lot of static in a rug and wherein cables...whether shielded or not....might somehow be affected be the static that's present.
I've known a couple of guys who've used lifters, but I've never been able to do an A/B
Thoughts pls...
