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.
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.

TST Red Copper Bananas
Optimized Contact Pressure: The TST "Tensioned Split Tube" Banana Plugs feature a solid color coded silicone elastomeric tensioning element. This tensioning element provides the spring force required to enable the use of soft high conductivity copper. Traditional banana plug designs rely on the inherent spring force of harder low conductivity copper alloys to provide the required contact pressure to make the banana plug connection. Unfortunately, the copper alloys that have sufficient inherent spring tension also suffer from poor conductivity. The simple and effective design approach of the Tensioned Split Tube (TST) Banana allows our connector to be constructed of C14500 Tellurium 93% IACS Copper. Maximized Signal Conductivity:
The Sized Right, Maximized Contact Area and Optimized Contact Pressure features of the TST Banana plugs are significant factors in maximizing signal conductivity but there are other significant factors to consider as well.
• Solid Single Piece Conductive Path:
This line of banana speaker wire connectors are designed to have a single continuous conductive path from the wire to the end of the plug. This eliminates the added contact resistance associated with the common multi-piece design.
• Truly High Conductive Core Materials:
TST Bananas utilize C14500 Tellurium 93% IACS Copper and the SP series spades utilize C11000 100% IACS Copper which are the highest conductivity coppers available for their respective designs.
Materials like C36000 Brass, C54400 Phosphor Bronze, C17500 Beryllium Copper are the typical copper alloys used and all have low conductivities in the range of 19% to 40% IACS.
Bare Copper Non-Plated Connectors: The use of bare non-plated copper connectors provides the natural high conductivity connection of a bare speaker cable termination without the safety hazard of shorting wire strands. Bare electronic grade copper will not turn green or oxidize heavily under normal conditions and some simple handling practices will keep you copper looking and performing quite well for many years.
