The connectors are being custom made for us, and are Rhodium plated. The wire is 20ga x2 OFC, and is dual shielded, with a OFC braiding plus CPVC.
The exterior is a ultra flex Military grade Nylon braid. It's extremely soft, flexible, and durable. (nothing like the hard plastic braid you usually see on cables)

James, may I suggest that folks be required to post a review after their demo period and that a sticky be made or at least a dedicated thread started for said purpose.
Political Correctness...defined

A doctrine fostered by a delusional, illogical minority and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.



In a recent press conference, President Obama remarked, "If I had a city, it would look just like Detroit."

Purdy dumass. Purdy. Learn how to splell. :-"
In search of accurate reproduction of music. Real sound is my reference and while perfection may not be attainable? If I chase it, I might just catch excellence.

The best way to enjoy digital music reproduction is to never listen to a good analogue reproduction.

James..........what was the original pricing for these?

This was pulled from the old thread on these cables. PM me with the lengths you are interested in.
Toy Maker wrote:.5-meter (pair) $69.00
1-meter (pair) $96.00
1.5-meter (pair) $123.00
2-meter (pair) $150.00

These cables all have "locking" RCA connectors, and the locks REALLY LOCK !! these things are SOLID once locked on.
The pricing I have been trying to keep a 1 meter set under $100. No matter what, quality parts are not cheap to start with.
So far, I have a 1 meter pair right at $96.00

But here's the plan....
Who really needs (1) 1-meter pairs? 1-meter is a nice standard, but I don't need or even want 1-meter cables.
We can make all your cables "custom lengths". My personal setup, is all in a stack, and even the 20" cables I made are too long.
12"-14" would be perfect for what I need. So I came up with a formula to figure the prices per inch...

$42.00 would be the base price, which would include the RCA's, heat shrink, time, labor etc.. Plus,
$1.35 per inch (per pair)

So..
14" (pair) = $42 + ($1.35 x 14") = $60.90
18" (pair) = $42 + ($1.35 x 18") = $66.30
24" (pair) = $42 + ($1.35 x 24") = $74.40

One of the best things is, they will all be 100% made in the USA...

Hmmm..more interconnect cables to test huh? I thought my test days were done but what the hell! Why not? I can't pass up the opportunity when these could be better then the PS Audio cables. Won't know until you try them right? Just make sure you pester Rainman to post his review too since cables are his thing :D :D
