    Itís so strange.... I also ordered these very cables a couple of months ago. I thought they were a bargain and very good.

    Then....... another AOS member said..... have you tried Blue Jeans Cable ( effectively Belden cable made to Blue Jeans specification.) Just Stunning at the same sort of price point + USA IMPORT DUTY...... which is a bummer.

    Audioquest FLX SLiP 14/2 for single wired speakers, 14/4 for biwired, £3.50 & £5.80/m respectively, I use them both in my 2 setups and find them excellent.

    Not sure the one I'm using now is fisual tbh. The last one was. One Ive got now I got the tip from Brian. It's very good and it's not going anywhere. Ever

    Iím certainly not going to get into a debate about speaker cable, as itís a no, no.

    I have 10k speakers and an even more expensive amp and ancillaries. Spent more on speaker cable than you can imagine £20 to £150 Meter. (And more).

    At the end of the day, itís what you like and what gives you the best sound to your ears.

    Sorry all, but itís what does it for you........ there ainít no magic cable out there!!

    Here endeth the Sermon.

    Sorry in advance!!!

    They don't exactly 'oversell' it on the advert, do they?

    Not so much of a bargain (although still sensible enough money), but if anyone's looking for a super-slim, discrete speaker cable, which can be hidden out of the way easily and sounds SUPERB, then I thoroughly recommend this stuff:

    https://www.futureshop.co.uk/chord-sarsen-speaker-cable

    I have it in my home-cinema system, which I also use for music duties, and it is really excellent.
