    It’s what I would class as machine wiring cable. Long out of production. Seems to be just good quality, multi-stranded tinned copper with PVC insulation. Having said that I’ve tried a few similar types which weren’t worth bothering with. This stuff is excellent though (for audio).

    Sounds even better doubled up.

    Just to put things in context re. the copper content, this stuff will carry 500 watts all day long at 240V and just be luke warm to the touch.

    It’s rated at about 1KW before insulation will get hot at mains voltage.

    Why is that my kit fails faster than I can buy it? Hectic day at work, so thought I'd relax when I got in with some tunes and a couple of cans. But the Sony QS player that has been the daily driver for about a year now has other ideas, keeps spitting the disc out. Okay so it was a Clapton album, but I tried a few others and it still is having none of it. Balls.

    Went upstairs to see what else other players I've got that actually still work. Came across a Sony X505ES I'd almost forgot about, so I've stuck that in. Have to say I think I prefer the QS but there's not much in it. And the Sony does have mahogany end cheeks and little LEDs embedded in the buttons - which is nice.

    Need to get the Tascam pro back from the shop as if this Sony dies I'm down to a choice between two Marantzs and a Pioneer DVD player.

    Cos things are unreliable. When people are listening to Equipment over 40 years old even without a service in their entire life & still work with no probs you know something is not right these days.. That is why i spend fuck all on new Equipment if i can help it.

    This is what i was trying to say in a thread a month back about CD players & why its better to use a pooter with files.

    I traded two broken ones for a mint working one, but that has now developed a fault where it will not play beyond track 6 of any album.
