Hello, My Name is Mark Tunis, I make Audio Cables, Speaker, Power and Interconnects, I sell on Audiogon. I have sold thousands and I have come to the realization that 80% of the cables I sell are custom configuration. Custom Length, Custom Termination, Custom Application, This my first featured listing, Testing the waters so to speak, Home Theater, High Current, Component, Termination Dependent, Length, Etc, is not a problem All my cables are made by hand by me one at a time, I'm a small operation working at my home, with a small markup (40%) including labor.
Unlike large cable manufactures which have a large overhead and typically charge 16 - 20 times cost. My mission is to the finest audio components, of the finest materials, at a reasonable price. No hype, No snake oil No voodoo. Pure, simple, outstanding cables with performance approaching the very best and most expensive audio cables on the market, for a fraction of the price. Well below what audiophiles normally expect to pay for superbly engineered and hand crafted components. Best Value of any cables available. The majority of the high definition cables (typically over $1,000 per pair) are made from silver conductors with Teflon insulation.
These expensive materials generally are thought to sound the best.
Prices for these premium cables are high for these reasons:
The materials ( silver and Teflon) and the labor-intensive processes, both are costly.
Then, the manufacturer expends enormous resources on advertising, to maintain their brand." These advertising expenses must be added to the final product cost. Also, cables are not sold directly to end users. Instead, manufacturers sell to stereo dealers who resell the product to end users, after adding their markup.
Dealers typically charge twice their cost. They must earn this amount, as profit, in order to survive, because they, too, have necessary high costs- rent, advertising, salaries and sales commissions, business taxes, etc.
Let’s analyze the distribution of funds paid by the end user for a pair of 8-foot silver and Teflon speaker cables from a name brand manufacturer:
Cost of Materials $ ..200.
Assembly Labor Costs $ ..175.
Administrative and Sales Costs $ ..125.
Advertising Costs $..225.
Manufacturer's Profit $..275.
Dealer Mark-Up $1,000.
TOTAL COST TO END USER $2,000
I can never be a big cable maker as I personalty make every cable, and can not buy the materials in quantity at my price point, I rely on surplus, auctions and the like to supply my business, so I spend half my time, searching for materials and the other half constructing, but always striving to produce the finest cables in the market place.
The Wire I use Exclusively is MIL Spec aerospace stranded silver plated copper wire, silver being the best conductor of electricity, Teflon insulation is very close to air resulting in very low capacitance which makes the cable suitable for any audio component as it will not contribute to instability,or absorb the signal.
Teflon insulation is very thin resulting in a cable that is lightweight and flexible. This cable will not stress the jacks on your components, but is very large gauge.
This configuration provides incredible imaging and detail across the entire audio spectrum, deep, tight, powerful bass, sweet transparent mid range smooth and linear high frequency response. This cable provides incredibly low resistance.
In 40 Years I have found no better.
If you are through with the back of your rack looking like a pound of spaghetti boiled in a pint of water, give me a call
