Bought these a year or so ago and never used them... my system at this point is pretty much all XLR so I no longer need these. Only grading them an 8 for age, I see no defects
Break Out of the Ordinary with Black Mamba Interconnects
Black Mamba interconnects challenge the performance
of even cost-no-object designs. Built with exceptional attention to
detail and performance, Black Mamba interconnects, like Shunyata's power cables, are destined to upset the status quo, delivering unparalleled performance at attainable prices.
Black Mamba's tonal balance is warm and lively, with Shunyata's trademark speed, timing and pacing. CDA-101 copper
conductors create an outstandingly smooth and rich tonal balance, with
superb imaging and soundstaging. A 100% full copper shield eliminates
external interference for deep black backgrounds and excellent
separation of instruments.
Shunyata uses a specially designed electromagnetic field to align the
molecular structure of their copper conductors. Applied during the
extrusion process, the result is greater coherency and superior
Alpha Cryo Process
Shunyata Research cryogenically treats all wire and electrical contacts
used in the production of its signal cables. A state-of-the-art computer
controlled chamber is used to lower the temperature of the contents to
-320 degrees Fahrenheit. This exclusive process uses a proprietary
combination of gases to enhance the cryogenic treatment.
CDA-101 copper is the highest purity copper available, with signed
certifications to verify its authenticity and purity. Shunyata Research
exclusively uses CDA-101 copper for their electrical products, from
signal cables to power cords and power conditioners.
