This is a proper hifi cable for high end system before you all shoot it down. Its really more at a low end of the top of the range field of cables, it will compete with any interconnect at any price really (yes there are cables many time more expensive than this one). The reason for the big discount is Atlas are updating their product lines so these will be replaced by new versions in a few months.

There are various reviews and forum discussions of these cables online if you need to check how good they are. I have just fitted mine into my system and can hear the difference immediately.

If you don't know what these are and how you would use them please don't vote cold just because you wouldn't pay for them. This is a very good price for this level of cable and that is the criteria of a hot deal.

am not voting either way - but cant believe the price of this cable lmao !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

" it will compete with any interconnect at any price really "

That's because most reasonably well made and constructed (but much cheaper) cables will compete with most vastly overpriced cables on the market which have similar resistance, capacitance and inductance.

When someone can explain the physics of these cables to me, I might actually sit up and take notice because for all the super fat speaker cables out there, a bell wire still offers less electrical resistance to the signal and these sorts of interconects are just the same.
Magazines give them positive reviews because the manufacturers buy advertizing space and so the myth of super cables gets perpetuated.
PT Barnum summarised the situation better than I ever could.

it's a cable...for £100!!!!!...cold as cold can be!

This is a cheap price for this cable, compared to the price this does sell for, well is advertised for on other websites.

I'll have to vote hot, as this is a good deal, however, there are cheaper cables out there which do just as good a job.

sad that people vote cold because they don't need a cable like this or because they don't know what it is, probably all using alba cd players from argos

Are you seriously trying to compare highly developed electronic components inside a cd player to a piece of copper wire?

no? i said the people voting cold probably own cheap alba cd players and have no need for this cable

It's a recession..... spend £120 a year on donations to UNICEF like I do.... much more worthwhile than a one meter cable?!

not everyone only has £120 a year to spend on something, some people might do both. no good sending £120 to UNICEF if you need decent cable and only have 1 x £120 to spend though

You have this backwards. Bell wire, being very thin, has higher resistance than thicker wire. An electric current is the movement of free electrons: the more free electrons there are, the greater the current for a given voltage. V = IR so if V stays the same but I increases then R must decrease. The thicker the wire, the more free electrons there are for each unit of length.

What you may have heard and are now misquoting is that lamp wire is just as good as most speaker cables.

This cable is still BS though.

So it's a bad deal and you should vote cold!

if someone posted a deal for a ferrari 458 for 30k people would vote it cold because it costs more than their fiesta "a car for 30k????????, mine cost me £350 on ebay - cold"
#15
excellent price reduction. voted hot. would certainly be for pretty high end systems. general advice is to spend roughly 10% of the hifi cost on the cables.
and you DO notice the difference with a good quality system. it would be pointless having a great amp and cd player then linking them up with some rubbish cable (like monster etc).
perhaps those voting cold a)have c**p systems b)have ageing and failing hearing ?!

The majority of people on here have never heard proper hi-fi, your £150 all singing all dancing 500 watts per channel with built in laser show and dancers from Argos does not qualify as proper hi-fi, go out and listen to some better quality equipment and then come back and tell me you can't tell the difference, this is suposed to be a site for 'DEALS' and as this cable has 67% off the RRP i would say this is a pretty good deal as you don't get good hi-fi discounted that often. Voted hot, good find.

I'm a hifi buff, but also a post graduate Electronic Systems Engineer with over 30 years experience in the field. It is the electrical properties of the cable that shape the sound characteristics. Factors including resistance, capacitance and inductance are what colour the "sound" and it's a complete and utter nonsense, ignorance and over-hyped marketing that drives people to pay this much for a cable. The nonsense you hear spouted about such things (and in this thread) about such cables continues to fuel the myth. The people who pay so much do not understand the physics and materials science, buy into the hype and then, to justify their purchases, look down on those who eschew such frivolous wastes of money.

It's all quite amusing :)

A fool and his money are easily parted is very true in this example.

I'm sure that's what the manufactures of expensinve cables what you to think. Oh btw, who's giving the advice btw - hi-fi mags ? they have their own incentive.

If you have the money to burn and *really* think the cable is an improvement and not just different sounding to your old cables, great but sit back and ask yourself if it's really that much better for the money.

(been there, done that with hi-fi cables)

This is a hot deal BECAUSE the same product everywhere else costs more. HOWEVER another wire that does the same thing not as well might be £100 cheaper. BUT it is a HOT DEAL because this is the cheapest price FOR THIS PRODUCT!

This is a very narrow definition of a good deal and not one that most people would recognise. I don't understand why so many people on here insist that the only factor in a good deal is the price compared to previous prices. This is not how most people decide whether or not to part with their money. They look at many other factors and weigh up alternative products before reaching a decision.

Anyway, the silent majority must disagree with you as they have voted this cold.

Voted cold.. because it isn't compatible with my Alba CD player

ha what, people shouldn't vote cold because there is an alternative product, that's a ridiculous thing to say. if people did that only the stuff from poundland would get hot.

would you vote a Russell Hobbs kettle deal cold if it was reduced by 80% to £20 because you can buy an argos value one for much less, they both boil water so going by your rules it would be a cold deal.

the only important factor in a good deal is the price compared to current prices elsewhere, doesn't matter if people can't afford it or wouldn't pay that much for the item

I'm voting hot on the principle that I can't find it cheaper elsewhere... which is the point of the site, if you're going to vote cold on perceived value, then I might make a point of setting up several dozen accounts and voting cold on every single product that I wouldn't personally buy, regardless of the price...

My tuppence worth is that analogue cables *do* make a significant difference, what I don't agree with is that more expensive is better... the only way to decide which cable is best is to listen to them on your own equipment in your own room. Cables definitely do affect bass, treble and stereo imaging, probably not as much as your furnishings, but a difference nonetheless. Personally I spent about £60 on my interconnects, £250 on my speaker cable because I liked the way it sounded, my budget was £500, but i trusted my ears, and chose cables based on characteristics rather than price or magazine reviews....

Where did you get that idea? Seem to be a lot of you folk about who like to invent site rules or dictate the purpose of the site.

Other than being very petty and probably against the rules, that also misses the point entirely. Perhaps the people voting cold do buy hifi cables, they just think this particular one is overpriced, regardless of what its RRP was and how much it has been reduced by. To me, that is the advantage of having a bunch of humans who vote on whether it is hot or not vs a cold, calculating algorithm that just does a basic mathematical comparison between the RRP (or previous best price) and the current price. The former is a far more intelligent way of deciding whether something is actually a "hot" deal or not. With the latter system, voting becomes almost entirely pointless: we are reduced to automatons who just compare two numbers.

But if you personally want to vote this hot just on the basis of RRP or price reduction, not taking anything else into account, then great. Thankfully, because the site works on votes, the sensible people can outweigh the cable loonies like you. 8)

PS What do you mean by cable "characteristics"? I hope you mean resistance, inductance and capacitance. Anything else is just a figment of your imagination.

By characteristics I mean the way the cable sounds (in terms of bass, treble etc) when it's connected to my stereo, rather than a pointless collection of electrical values, which although they may determine the end product in terms of signal transmission are meaningless in terms of defining the sonic qualities of the cable.

And if resistance affecting sound quality is a figment of my imagination.... why not use rubber cables... sure the resistance is pretty high, but it wont make any difference? right?

I voted hot on the principle that this cable may be the most suitable one for somebodies system and listening environment, by some people logic I should vote cold on a gearbox for a citroen because I own a peugot.

If a deal isn't of interest to people, I wish they'd leave it alone and not vote at all, that way, when all the people who listen to decent hifi equipment skim through the deals they don't skip over a genuine deal because they see a headline figure of -116. The analogy here is with apple products, personally I despise them, would never own one, but I realise there are people who like and aspire to owning them, I don't vote cold, I just walk on by....
