On offer is a set of five AudioQuest King Cobra balanced/XLR
audio cables in 1.5m length (about 5 ft). These are authentic Audioquest
products; I have the original, branded boxes and will ship in those if you
wish. For years King Cobra was a top-selling Audioquest cable line,
value-priced, high-performing, sturdy and reliable.
I bought these 6–8 yr ago from a fellow audiogoner and used
them in a humidity- and temperature-controlled environment. They have no
visible tarnishing on the contacts and otherwise look great, although I did
notice some scratches on the red enamel surfaces of a couple of connectors,
hence the 8 rating. (Maybe you can see those scratches in the photo.) They’ve
worked great for me. I’m getting rid of them because I upgraded my system to
monoblocks, so my cabling requirements changed.
I will sell all five cables as a unit at $230. For that
price I will pay shipping and absorb PayPal costs. If these don’t sell as a
unit in a week or so, I will sell individual cables at $50 per cable, $95/pair plus shipping.
FWIW, I have also used one of these cables as an AES/EBU
digital conduit, and it worked quite well even though they were not marketed as
