Very good quality Speaker cable if you want to upgrade from the standard Bell wire stuff without breaking the bank.

Cheapest i could find it when you factor in the free/low-cost P&P

£1.00 for orders up to £10 and free P&P over £10.

Generous with their cable as well. I ordered 20 metres and got 23 metres :-)

Maybe, maybe not but it also doesn't disentegrate like bell-wire does when you tighten the connector's on your amp/speakers :thumbsup:

this is good cable - well made and cheap as chips. Sounded just the same (almost) as my previous cable which cost several hundreds of pounds more ...... bell wire isn't actually much cheaper!

Get yourself down to your local lighting centre. Good quality cable for speakers (no, not bell wire) can be had for a fraction of this price. You pay through the nose in hi-fi stores.

What are you on about? Seriously? It can make a difference depending on your equipment and length you are running, plus the stuff tI got with my HiFi was so hard to work with that I just changed it. This is a good deal, voted hot.

Thanks

Untrue.
Yes, you can hear the difference between speaker cables.
In good Hi Fi system you have to use high quality cables.
Even power cord and electricity is very important.

Similar but not the same. Single core is very difficult to tighten in amps and speakers and even the multicore is tricky. Good quality speaker cable is made up of many smaller strands making it easier to work with.

You know why this cable in particular is called studio grade? yes you guessed it it's used by studio's around the world.

The BBC for example use VanDamme cables.

No, I'm talking apbout proper OFC multistrand speaker cable, not lighting cable.
My local lighting centre sells it for less than £1 per meter.

Of course, they also sell solid core cables which became popular with some sections of the hi-fi set a few years ago.

Of course you can hear the difference. Not that you've spent hundreds on the cabling and want to justify the ridiculous cost :w00t:

Trust me, I used to be a hi-fi nut and get all the best cabling etc but then I actually realised after using cheap cabling as a stop gap when I was moving house there is no difference! :oops:

As for the leccy, even better. Don't forget that power has ran thro miles of cabling, new and much of it year and years old, why do you think a metres worth of 'improved' cabling will make a sodding piece of difference :w00t:

OK so you'd rather use a different type of cable fair enough that's your choice but the point of this site is for highlighting a certain product at a good price.

Pop back when you've found this Brand of cable cheaper :whistling:

Is ]half the quoted price cheap enough for you ?

An equivelant product is still cheaper from your local lighting store though (or your local Lidl if they still have stock from a couple of weeks back) and I agree with Mat. You will not be able to hear any improvement by spending more.

a fool and his money....................

perhaps i can sell you some wi-fi spray sir? as you seem to think modern technology runs on witchcraft and not as most of us think the laws of physics.

if you have actually ever bought a "high quality" powerchord for better sound then you have been properly doneover.

i love so called audiophiles....best clowns ever.

That's not the same cable. that is the 2x0.75mm cable.

The site you linked to charge £1.91 per metre for the 2.5mm cable the same as the one i posted compared to £1.80 per metre at audiovisual online. In addition they charge £4.99 P&P so would be over £7 more expensive for the 20m length i purchased
