I am selling the Alpha-core speaker cables that I have had for about nine (9) years. They are relatively sturdy cables and have not been abused. The large spade ends (speaker) show some wear but do not need to be replaced. The speaker ends are biwire Rhodium bananas and show little if any wear. The Python (serpent series) main cable body shows some minor discoloration but are not bend or broken in any way. I guess that I might very conservatively rate them as 7 out of 10 primarily because of age. I might rate myself the same way. The cables can be seen or heard by local appt. While I am flexible on price, I might ignore a super low ball offer. My feedback will show that I go out of my way to be a gentleman and I would appreciate the same courtesy. PayPal add 3.5%.
