Don't let the simplicity and modest price of these cables stop you from buying them. These are giant killers! Rare NOS Western Electric cloth/silk 22awg solid core tinned copper twisted pair for maximum noise rejection. Due to the skin effect most dielectrics add coloration to any wire. Silk over raw wire eliminates this and the end result is a very organic cable with unbelievable detail, clarity and speed. Terminated with premium nickel Switchcraft RCA & Kester 44 solder. After 75-100 hours of burn in, these cables settle down and draw you into the music.
