    Default FS: 3 pairs cryo treated silver interconnect cables

    These were bought from a "1 Man Band" eBay seller a couple of years ago.
    Claimed they were cryo-treated high purity silver. I have no reason to doubt that.
    He doesn't seem to be on eBay anymore.

    Anyway - £25 a pair (RCA). £30 a pair (XLR).
    All 3 pairs for £70.
    Inclusive of UK delivery.

    2 RCA pairs. 0.5m
    1 XLR pair. 0.68m.

    These do sound nice and open and well resolved.

    XLRs arrived Jerry - nicely made. Hmm ... wish the RCA pairs were a bit longer.

    Jerry - Are the RCA's unshielded?

    Hmm, yes, I think so.
    It can often sound better that way if you can get away with it in terms of hum issues, imo!

    Short is probably better than long and shielded for that purpose.

    PM me your name and address if you'd like to try them, Martin.
    No obligation except to post them back if you don't want them and to pay up if you do.
    Probably about £1 postage.
