Wanted: Speaker Cable single ended 6m pair

Wanted: Speaker Cable single ended 6m pair

Trying to save on buying new as cable margins are extortionate (cost of copper is the cost of copper?).

So, hoping someone on the forums has a spare set that they will move on.

I’m after a 6m set of speaker cables – single ended (speakers are not bi-wire).

Terminations is not too much of a concern as I may change these anyway to silver types.

In terms of comparison, I’m currently looking at some VdH higher up the ladder types and Neotech Nemos so you know where I’m at. Possibly even WireWorld or non-networked MIT.

There is much hype around cables as we all know so some brands I do not favour where upon listening to them I could not hear what I was told to hear by their marketing info – often the opposite :blush:
So I mean no offense if I don’t respond to some offers.

Budget £160 or so….

I use this, and have done for quite a few years

He also sells it unterminated

I use Van Damme 4.0mm Blue, perfectly good enough even with my beefy amp (>500wpc) although just under 5m - and 12m would be 1/3rd of budget

although you mention copper but also Neotech Nemos - I thought they were silver but it may be my lack knowledge?

I mentioned no such thing :grinning:

Indeed it is, so why pay foo prices?
I don’t want to start a cable war but am genuinely interested by the above statement and then wanting to buy foo cables?

A little part of me misses the salad days of the Wam when using the word “cable” in a thread title was like summoning Beetlejuice. Some cnut that hadn’t posted in months would appear within seconds to kick off. Good times, damn good times :upside_down_face:

Some here 6m long. Not my advert just bringing it to your attention.

Had some nice offers - thanks for the interest.

There’s no magic in cable itself, just very well understood physics. I had a 30 year professional career, part of which involved specialising in some rather carefully designed signal transport cables. And my signals could be kilovolts and gigahertz. The trade-offs in connectors are harder to be definite about, although even they aren’t beyond the wit of man.

If you think you might be struggling to measure something then maybe it’s worth saving up for a vector network analyser. If this, for example, can’t measure it then that’s because it isn’t there.

As far as costing goes I was a buyer and sometimes a self-builder, but I’m not surprised that sellers’ pricing models don’t reflect their costs. I imagine they are much more driven by what they understand the market will pay. I’m afraid the mark-up on extra metres of cable is never going to be ‘small’ though.

All sorted now. Got a load of interest in my quest - thank you. Appreciate the posts, links, offers etc :grinning: :+1:
