    To be fair there's a lot more goes into making these than meets the eye. When I went to shrink wrap college, I only got 2 years into the six year course and had to drop out as it was too gruelling. And that isn't just any old clingfilm either, it's Saran wrap!

    Let themselves down by miss spelling "cord" though, makes it all look a bit iffy.
    Pining for the fjords? What kind of talk is that? And why did he fall flat on his back the minute I got him home?

    Jeez - they look awful (Saran wrap or not)!

    Are they worth the money? Well a lot of work goes into them, and the conductors are claimed to be 7N silver. Most commercially available silver wire is only 3N (or 4N at best), so refining it to 7N purity will be expensive. Cold welding the conductors to the connectors make sense, but to do the job properly you have to have the correctly sized crimping tools, otherwise the crimp will not be reliable and will fail with time. Platinum plating the connecting surfaces make sense from a cosmetic point of view, but is of doubtful advantage electrically.

    What is this obsession with the mechanical damping of cables? All cables are soft, flexible and compliant, not stiff and rigid; so how are these vibrations transmitted?

    But as I said they look awful and I wouldn't pay £15 for one, let alone £15,000, no matter how good they sound. Are those testimonials genuine?

    Nice looking Quad 306 power amplifier. Listing ends later today and the bidding is up to £156 so far. Good sounding amps!
