Re: CARVERaudio.com Interconnects

The 2m sample set of RCA's went out today. Looking at your signature I saw you have mostly Sunfire equipemnt... So I threw in a pair of the XLR's as well.

All 3 sets of cables were designed and made to match.
The RCA's and XLR's are the same dia wire. The speaker cables are a super flex 8ga cable. All 3 use Rhodium connectors.

Here's a quick photo of the lineup.

Re: CARVERaudio.com Interconnects

You read my mind, given the low impedance of my Sound Labs etc.. and what RR had to say, I've been looking at 8 gauge speaker cable...awesome! Looking forward to trying them out. Although I don't use the XLR because I'm doing the parrallel mono block thing...

Re: CARVERaudio.com Interconnects

Sorry man... I did not send the speaker cables. Only the RCA and XLR.

The speaker cables are my prototype set. I had the matching connectors made in China to match the RCAs and fit the gauge of wire I wanted to use. That was the "sample set" that they sent me for appoval. They have changable matching spade tips as well.

I never placed the initial order for them. It was right around 2008-2009 when everyone stopped spending money.
It was going to be a $2500 investment for the 1st run of parts.

If you like the cables and want a set of speaker cables... we can work on building a set to come close to the original one I planned on making. We'd need to find some nice off the shelf connectors that will fit your needs. I have the cable, braiding and heat shrink already.

Just to give you an idea... my speaker cables were going to run around $350 for a 10 foot pair.
I know the cable has gone up a bit over the last few years as well.

Re: CARVERaudio.com Interconnects

Hello,
I figured you didn't, I was just saying that the speaker cables are what I've been looking into. And yea, as a small business owner I can tell you it's not been the greenest of pastures the last few years. I just submitted a rate increase and had one account cancel right after that. Mind you it's been three years I've held my rates. Let's get the RCA's figured out and ordered up and we can work on the speaker cables later. I will certany be getting a pair!
