    I went from the richer sound cable to chord rumour a few years back and the difference was night an day.huge improvement! iv recently bought some qed signature revelation and the improvements are more subtle. I've never paid more than 35 quid on eBay for any of the pairs of cables(terminated) either so worth the punt when bargains like that come up. I'm sure theres some van damme in the classifieds as we speak although not sure which type?

    Bigman, just seen your kind offer of a demo, but not local to you!

    It's great to hear your experience has been positive, and you're right that the price means taking a punt on it is not much of a risk

    That's a shame mate, as i said a demo would have been provided with pleasure. I like mine very much but i will try the VD blue when funds allow just to see if i can hear a difference.

    Copper pipe! Ahahahaha, good one.

    On the DIY front I recall reading lots of people claimed good results from an esoteric braided design made from cat5 (or 6 if you're feeling flush), called canare star, or something. But I don't have the time or energy to go bespoke with heatshrink and all that kerfuffle.
