Who the hell would pay £79 for a HDMI cable?

You are someone who is obviously not aware of home entertainment systems and how much they cost. To have various connections (Sky box, XBox, Apple TV etc.) in a side cupboard all linked up to an HDMI hub which then links to the TV - all concealed behind the wall - costs a lot of money. Naturally you do not want Maplin's cheapest cabling so the cables they install are fabric-sheathed gold-plated 5 metre ones. Cost per cable is way above £79.00 - more like £130.00 each.
