    High build quality and performance as you would expect.

    A few comments from customers, all good and the customers knew nothing about any technical details of the construction or the connectors, just tried it and listened.

    The cable performed much better than the Interconnects I had been using.

    Your cable has bags of detail, Supple bass and great depth and dimension to music.

    The sound with the new cable has better timing, greater bass definition and all instruments have a greater space between them.

    Daft question, but does this also replace the G1500HD range?

    Hello Gareth,

    yes it does, no need for the G1500HD with Neutrik Profi. This connector is excellent and costs less.

    I can fit WBT 0110 AG if anyone requires them, costs a lot more though.

    A new delivery of connectors arrived last week so plenty available again after a bit of a delay due to a connector shortage, I used all that where available and the lead time from the connector manufacturer is long.

    I can confirm that the HDX1 is a superb sounding cable. I have a set myself.

    The connectors are superb too. Excellent quality.

    Sounds a very reasonable price compared to the majority of rip off overpriced cables out there.

    The connectors have a plastic front part that holds the contacts and an aluminium body/ barrel to cover the soldered part of the contacts.

    The centre pin is hollow similar to the design of the popular variations of 'bullet' connectors.

    The ground connection is a full circular metal contact with high contact area and low resistance rather than the miniature point of contact of the 'bullet' design of connectors. The connection area inside the connector is also large so that plenty of screening from the cable can be connected.
    The circular ground contact has a gap in the circular design to help with low capacitance.

    I have also listed these on ebay for people that prefer to buy on ebay and there are shipping options for everywhere on ebay.

    They are proving popular and customer feedback has been great

    I also bought two pairs of the HDX1 actually, to connect my Croft Micro25R with my Croft Series7R mono blocks and also my CD player with the preamp. The first impressions are very positive, although I am still burning in the cables.

    The downside is that -given the higher levels of details with the new cables- I have to repeat my 12BH7A valve comparisons... RCS vs Tung-Sol vs Sylvania vs Westinghouse, etc., etc. Quite fun though, I should not complain -))
