    Default New Cables

    Hi All,

    Over the past few weeks I've been experimenting with assorted cable types and plugs. I've taken advice and recommendations from multiple people with varying results.

    By chance, I seem to have stumbled across a combination of cable and plug which, in my opinion, is the best I've heard yet.

    Change of plans, won't be going "commercial" with these.

    Information purposes only.

    Solid silver on the link but they do copper and silver plate.

    I have silver plated.

    Solid silver sounds potentially like a damn nice plug, and on something that appears very much like the excellent Eichmann silver bullet type plugs. The pins look the same too

    Personally, I think that in a market flooded with so many cable choices you will struggle to be able to get yours out there on the open market.

    I'd totally recommend the silver plated plugs. They are a step above the MSAUDIO plugs in build quality and strain relief

    If they really do sound good, and are robustly made and look good, then it would be worth approaching some hifi dealerships to see if they want to take them on.
    I've heard of proposed deals like that before.

    If they like them and want to offer them to their customers then you might be a bit shocked at the prices they ask!

    That's not a bad idea. I'll give it some thought. Starting to think im a bit under powered for it but I'll see if there's a focus group on here willing to give them a listen and see where that leads.
