    Cool MS Audio / Klotz MC5000 interconnects build offer for all AoS members

    A couple of months ago Marco posted a thread searching for the ultimate VFM SPPV interconnect using reasonably priced cables and plugs available today . I believe he tried many cables and plugs from various manufacturers and achieved some very good results . Some became viable candidates for use in his own system . Indeed I tried quite a few of the suggested cables myself and was pleasantly surprised by the SQ of quite a few of them.
    Now , I've been making my own interconnects for over 20 years and have had great success in this area for little expenditure .One of my personal favourites is the Klotz AC110 cable which Rega used in their interconnects . I always have some of this cable to hand to make up cables when and where needed , so I decided to make up some Klotz interconnects to compare with the forum favourites. All I needed was some plugs .
    While scouring the internet I came across MS Audio plugs , which looked very interesting , so I bought a set and fitted them to the Klotz AC110 cables . I was really surprised at how good the new cables sounded . So much so that I sent them to Marco for a listen . He subsequently bought a couple of sets from me . So did another few forum members and all were very happy with their purchase , some replacing very expensive cables with the Klotz AC110 . All agreed that they were excellent.
    A little later Kevin ( cageyH ) suggested that we try the Klotz MC5000 cable instead of the AC110. Marco duly asked me to make up a set for him and this new interconnect sounded even better than the MS Audio / Klotz AC110 combination . So we all settled on the MS Audio / Klotz MC5000 combination.
    Everyoe who has bought these cables from me has been very impressed with them and all have kept them in their system , including me . They are very good indeed ( at any price )
    At the suggestion of some of the purchasers of this cable I have decided to offer them for sale to forum members here at what I believe is a very competitive price . If you are interested in purchasing these cables please feel free to contact me with your requirements and I can quote you a price .

    Good luck with this, Brian. The cables in question are sonically superb and extremely well-priced for the performance on offer - and the service you're providing for members is fantastic.

    I would therefore urge all AoS-ers (unable to solder to such a high standard as your good self), and who are keen to obtain the best sound from their systems, in true AoS SPPV fashion, to take up your excellent offer!

    Marco.

    Brian,
    Could you do me a 6m right channel and 2m left as I am feeding the mono blocks on the back of the respective speakers and running short speaker cable. The IC between DAC nad PRE is staying put. Might as well run the same throughout. Will post up results regards synergy wise. Please PM with costings and Paypal details.
    Cheers Tony.

    These cables bettered a TQ Black interconnect in my (revealing) system.
    Asked Brian of he would do me another for my Firebottle phono stage.

    No need to look for anything further interconnect wise.
    As good as it gets - it betters a £300 cable, and who want's to spend more than THAT to get maybe 5% better (maybe)?

    Brian's a mate, but honestly, these cables are head and shoulder better than anything else I've tried.
    It's good to be aware of the parameters under which a device performs. It's not terribly useful to be scared off by them..
