I purchased these exceptionally beautiful and wonderful sounding, heavy, cables new from MusicDirect maybe a year ago. They are in excellent condition with no scratches, no frays
(nice woven fabric sheathing), etc, just typical, very light lug marks on the spades.
They are better quality than Rocket 88s, according to AQ. In my A-B comparison with Rocket 88s, the Rockefellers truly outshine the 88s from approx 2kHz+.
I got Vandersteen 3A Sig speakers that require longer cables, so I've got 12-footers now. They have SUPERB clarity across the spectrum, with exquisite bass - mid bass, and treble extension. Mids are comparable to any mega-bucks cable. I have purposely priced these below their value, and considering other Audiogon offers, nothing comes close in age, length, sound quality, and pristine condition. I will cover careful UPS/USPS insured packing and shipping to you.
Here is some additional info I found on the web:
Combining all three levels of AudioQuest copper, and
larger gauge conductors than the Rocket series, Rockefeller offers outstanding
bi-wire performance at a very reasonable price.
AudioQuest's Rockefeller speaker cables can help
high-performance audio systems sound their very best. Rockefeller closely
resembles AQ's Rocket 88 cables, but Rockefeller's larger overall gauge results
in a greater dynamic presentation
- 8' pair of bi-wired speaker cables with cold-welded spades
- eight solid copper conductors per cable, each made of a
combination of Perfect-Surface Copper and Perfect-Surface Copper+
- battery-powered active Dielectric-Bias System maintains a
constant 72V charge for more consistent cable performance (batteries included)
