These are Cardas cables made for Ayre under there signature series line, the sound is as close to golden reference as to be hard to identify the difference. search them in the forums on this site for some perspective. I don't think Ayre offers these anymore, At one point I had an all Ayre system , that's why I chose them instead of straight Cardas , I now have a biwireable set of speakers so I popped for a set of Cardas clear reflection in Bi wire. still burning in so I cant give an honest sound comparison. these are in good condition with some wear but no cuts or defects. on the spades, I tried to photograph the cardas insignia stamped into each spade, they have some wear from clamping and unclamping, overall in fine condition, and sound excellent. check my feedback, I have original boxes, my price is fair for cables of this caliber. Paypal only, with no fees.feel free to email any questions. 2 meter in length .thanks for looking.
