3 Meter Silver 10 AWG Speaker Cables AUDIOQUEST BANANAS
Silver Audioquest BANANAS
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.
First of all, there is no other cable on the market at this price point that even comes close to these. 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 speaker 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 speaker 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, speaker 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
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.
The wire 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 midrange smooth and linear high frequency response.
This cable provides incredibly low resistance.
4 Runs of 10 AWG Silver Plated pure copper, American Mil-spec Aircraft wire
Silver, the best conductor available.
4 Runs of 10 AWG Sliver Plated American Mil-spec AEROSPACE wire
Silver-plated copper with 40 microinches minimum coating thickness.
Teflon (PTFE) as a dielectric is very close to air.
Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE This heavy-wall wire, rated at 1,000 volts rms or 3,000 volts DC, saves both size and weight compared with many other insulated wires of the same rating.
Suitable for Broad frequency use at elevated temperatures in high-reliability programs where electrical and thermal stability are important.
