No its aimed at the idiot/audio enthusiast who is under the impression that any cable that costs less than $100 a foot makes things sound like a dying cat.This is the only group of people who Denon sells their high end products to, because every else has common sense.

Interestingly enough throwing your cables onto a fire can improve the Gwen Stefani listening experience.

I wonder if this is an advertising scheme to get more people to their site.
Even the completely delusional audio "enthusiast" couldn't possibly be stupid enough to pay $500 for an Ethernet jumper.

Then again...

the AK-DL1 will bring out all the nuances in digital audio


That's very misleading advertising. The thing with digital, is that you either get a signal or you don't. Provided the cable and connectors are of sufficient quality to conduct the signal reliably, the cable type or construction will have no bearing on the sound quality whatsoever.
