This is a 3 meter pair of Audioquest Niagara Interconnects with XLR connectors. The Audioquest Niagara cable was for a number of years the second from the top of the Audioquest interconnect line just behind the Ski. The Niagara series uses solid core perfect surface silver conductors in Teflon tubes and has 72 DBS noise reduction system. These are wonderful cables which deliver the benefits of excellent solid silver, i.e. terrific low level detail and imaging as well as excellent bass, without the treble emphasis seen with silver coated copper cables. The 72 DBS noise reduction system does minimize noise. The Niagara cables received a strongly positive review from Tony Cordesman in the Absolute Sound. These cables replaced my previous favorite interconnect at the time, Kimber KCAG. The list price for a 3 meter pair was $3,000. These cables initially had XLR to RCA connectors. I sent them to Audioquest and replaced the RCA's with XLR''s. I have the original case, Audioquest box and shipping box back from Audioquest. These are genuine Audioquest cables in excellent condition. They are rated 8 for age. The reason for a sale is that I have gone from monoblocks placed behind my speakers to a stereo amp and no longer need the longer cables. Shipping and PayPal fees will be the responsibility of the buyer. PayPal fees can be avoided by a number of payment methods.
