I purchased these from a respected audiogoner last December. He indicated he was the original owner, but I do not have a receipt for that. These terrific cables have received rave reviews - check out Positive Feedback online for a great review. I have made a decision to both change my amp and cable the entire system with one brand to match my speakers, and so I am putting these up for sale. Although synergy in one's system is to me all important, I do believe these are the finest cables I have had in any system of mine over the years. There are a couple of very small marks on one of the xlr barrels, but absolutely no flaws I can see or feel in the cable wrap, etc. The pelican case is included. Price includes fedex ground shipping to the lower 48 only. I do not take paypal, but I do appreciate you taking a look.
