    Thumbs up *FS: Van den Hul 'The Wind' MKII Hybrid loudspeaker cables*

    Hi Guys,

    Due to moving things around a bit, my current speaker cables are now no longer long enough, and with them being discontinued by VDH, I can't source a longer pair. Therefore I'm reluctantly having to move them on.

    These are superb sounding speaker cables and very well regarded, due to their unique construction and single conductor design (hence why they have been twisted together, which also improves their performance). Details here of their design and construction: https://www.vandenhul.com/product/th...-halogen-free/

    They are a 3.8m pair, terminated with solid-copper Cardas spades, and in very good condition:









    I'm not charging for the connectors, even though they weren't cheap [and provide a superb, securely soldered and sonically transparent connection], but instead with a view to giving another AoS member the best deal possible on these excellent cables.

    In that respect, I've Googled around, and the going rate seems to be around 350, for a 3m pair, such as on the following listing (bearing in mind that these cables new were 25 per metre, PER SIDE, unterminated, so 50 per metre, as a full stereo pair]: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/164406565135

    Therefore I am offering my, almost 4m fully-terminated pair, at a BARGAIN price to AoS members of 230 including shipping to any mainland UK address!

    So, get in quick if you'd like to own these superb and highly sought-after speaker cables, which will improve the sound of pretty much any system. Interested parties, please either register your interest here or PM me.

    Cheers, folks!

    Marco.

    The 'h' was missing at the front of the VDH link...

    Talking *BONKERS Super Sunday BILLY-BARGAIN!*

    Ok, I must be MAD, simply because I'd love an AoS member to get a genuine bargain on these cables, so.... THIS IS MY LAST OFFER before they go to ebay:

    150.00, DELIVERED!!

    DAT'S IT FOLKS - NO MORE REDUCTIONS, so if you want the chance to own, IMO, some of the best loudspeaker cables ever made, then you know what to... PM ME!
