We are in the process of upgrading some of our demo equipment, and we are selling our AudioQuest CV-8 speaker cables. These particular cables were cut from bulk spook (DBS upgradeable), and hand terminated with AudioQuest's silver BFA connectors on both ends using a cold forge press, just like what AQ uses in-house. The CV-8 is a TAS Golden Ear Award Winner and Stereophile Recommended Component, and is an incredible value for the money;
"CV-8 offers well-defined and nicely-weighted bass, a neutral midrange with a hint of warmth, clear but never edgy highs and truly excellent soundstaging. Roundness on transients makes this cable easy to listen through for hours on end." – The Absolute Sound

Perfect-Surface Copper+ (PSC+) Conductors CV-8 uses a carefully finessed combination of Perfect-Surface Copper (PSC) and extremely high purity Perfect-Surface Copper+ (PSC+) conductors. All conductors are solid, which prevents strand interaction, a major source of distortion. Surface quality is critical because a conductor can be considered as a rail-guide for both the electric fields within a conductor, and for the magnetic fields outside the conductor. The astonishingly smooth and pure Perfect-Surface eliminates harshness and greatly increases clarity compared to OFHC, OCC, 8N and other coppers. Extremely high-purity PSC+ further minimizes distortion caused by grain boundaries, which exist within any metal conductor.
Spread Spectrum Technology (SST) When it comes to speaker wire, no single solid-core conductor can simultaneously sound good and convey adequate power from the amplifier. A single large conductor swallows up high frequencies and a single small conductor can’t properly deliver gobs of bass current, however, an array of multiple, differently-sized solid-core conductors spread the reproduced spectrum, further increasing bandwidth and power handling, creating a sum which is far greater than any individual conductor size might suggest.
Circular Array Geometry All conductors in a cable interact with each other; the trick is to make sure they all play nicely together. The placement of the conductors within the cable (and ensuring that they maintain their spacing even when bent or twisted) is crucial. Proper geometry improves conductivity, reduces noise, and minimizes signal loss over the long run. CV-8’s Circular Array Geometry defines this relationship by alternating positive and negative solid-core conductors around a center core. This circular-spiral construction allows CV-8 to deliver significantly better dynamic contrast and clarity than if the same conductors were run parallel or in multiple twisted pairs.
