NB: This is NOT a 'Re-Listing'. This auction is for my second pair (of a full bi-wire double) of these supremely well designed, well-made audiophile cables. The first pair sold at above reserve price.

Originally, painstakingly auditioned over 4 months, against the likes of Transparent Audio, Synergistic Research, Signal Cable, Nordost and Tellurium Q.

Unbelievable sound quality - and not just 'for the price'! IMO - and check out the white paper by Q Acoustics - they are virtually seamless across the entire frequency range. Their development and manufacture is based upon QED's vast experience of cable science, not 'personal preferences'. Their specs (Loop Resistance, Capacitance, and Inductance values are state-of-the-art) tell the story - see below.

Awarded 'Audio Excellence' class from Martin Colloms in HiFi Critic* (which is a pretty damn rare event!). * The only truly independent-of-suppliers/advertising world-class audio magazine

These cables are genuinely 'as new' - they have been installed in my system for less than 15 months.
A change of amplification (to a stereo amp, from 2 monoblocs) means I need longer lengths. I am replacing them with same, but longer Supremus cables - because for less than $12k per pair, I don't think there is anything to touch them.

PLEASE NOTE: European Shipping is far less than this ($55 to the USA) example. Carton weight (3.5kgs) means this is variable, so please ask before payment!
