Excellent lod cable. Sound wise right in there with the big dogs like Whiplash and ALO Audio. Several blogs agree. Free shipping in the states.
From the Qables.com website: "Quite a long time I have been thinking how to fill the huge price and performance gap between the Silvercab and the Goldcab.
I could not exactly figure out how I could make an acceptable step in performance and at the same an justifiable step in the price gap.
But I happen to come across this German company, Mundorf, specialised in the production of Silver/Gold alloy wire. They produce a high quality alloy between Silver and 1% pure Gold.
Goldplated was something that I already tried out but I could not really justify the sound benefits against the price increase for such wire versus standard Silver. It would cost me more in wire costs then I actually found back in sound performance.
Now Mundorf manufactures a real alloy, that means melted and then extruded to wire, between pure silver and 1% pure gold and the alloy really makes a huge sonically difference in respect to silver only or goldplated silver. It seems that the melting creates a much more balanced and even crystal structure all through the silver then you can ever hope to realise with only plating the outer rims.
I have build the first cables and the feedback I get from them is really amazing. Every thing you expect from silver with the ‘touch’ of the transparency of gold."
