The Hexlink Golden 5C were Cardas' previous top of the line interconnects. This is a 12ft pair with factory terminated Cardas Rhodium RCA connectors. These top of the line Cardas cables are extremely transparent and detailed, with an overall smooth and musically satisfying presentation rather than ruthlessly revealing. Guys, ruthlessly revealing can be demonstrated reasonably with mere patch cords. The sonic characteristics of the Cardas Hexlink Golden 5C is what the research into high-end cables thrives to achieve. You will be very happy with these cables. I recently sent these cables back to Cardas factory to be factory re-terminated with the latest Cardas black heatshrinks with gold letterings. They will come in factory packaging with certificate of authenticity for your peace of mind.
