    You may be right, but some one may not know it and give him that much.

    I wouldn't...and I have some...

    I recall around $400/pair originally. Great cables if your gear can take the high resistance & capacitance they possess. Truly high end stuff that alot of the DIY/tube crowd is copying using transformer winding wire in a similar design.

    Just like the descriptions. Very transparent and detailed. The soundstage is stunning. Really nice cables...

    I haven't really noticed the lack of bass, and I like the lower registers. I was thinking about trying to a/b them with some heavy guage ofc copper, but haven't gotten around to it.

    I remember talking to Al about them. IIRC, he recalled Matt saying they were an almost perfect transmission line, but the thing with the discharge killed them. When I later talked to Ken, he assured me they would only affect unstable sand amps, i.e. older first generation designs.

    I have two 20' runs. I think I'm going to halve them and terminate 'em (what a pain in the ass that's going to be).

    I believe Russ or Mark or Jesse posted a link to a discussion about these cables a while back. These are something I've looked to own, but I can never find some that are reasonably priced, plus they hardly ever come up FS. They are supposed to be remarkable cables but $425 starting bid for used cables, is a bit insane, IMO
