LAT International SS-1000D speaker cables have received excellent reviews--and have served me well. I had two pairs of these cables, bi-wiring Vandersteen speakers to an Audio Research amp. This pair is the remaining pair. The cables are terminated at the speaker end with universal spades that are in fine condition. At the amplifier end, the cables are terminated with 3/16ths inch spades, one of which is broken but still made sufficient contact to the amp. All of the other spades at the amp end are somewhat bent (see the photos), but I wouldn't try to straighten them since they might break. All the spades worked OK hooked up to the amp, but I would expect that whoever purchases these cables will definitely want to replace the terminations at the amp end. The 12 foot cables themselves are as good as new.
