Very nice older MIT cables that still hold their own in a quality system. Extremely nice all metal connectors and great sound. Been in storage for a few years since I took my balanced pre out of play. I have no recollection of the original price of these cables ... my start price is a relative bargain compared to the build and sound quality of these cables. Grab a great deal as I clean out my closets, basement and garage. I've been away from A'gon for a while ... as I simplify my life I'll be posting additional high quality audiophile gear here. Thanks for looking and feel free to ask any questions.
