I am the original owner of these 4 year-old cables. Hands-down the BEST power cables I have ever used, outdone only by the v2 of these which I use on every single component I own. Copper ribbon conductors inside minimal mesh tubing for incredible clarity and impact. Ungrounded for less smearing of the audio signal -- plus the two-pin super-low dielectric plugs allow you to reverse phase if you need to. Offered at $599 for the pair. An incredible deal for these cables that are light-years ahead of any other technology. New the v2 Endorphin power cords (which are identical except for a slightly wider mesh tubing) sell for $699 EACH. Plugs have been treated with Silclear - that's what you see on the prongs in the picture. Buyer to pay shipping and fees. Cheers and thanks for looking.
