Doug,,the price/performance ratio of your cables is just fantastic.Thanks for doing this!
I'll try to get something going with the speaker cables soon. I'm finishing up a set for another forum's road show and will make another set for y'all. I'm putting George first with the speaker cable road show. :D It'll be a couple of weeks before this starts, so add your name to the list if you want to be in on it.

Hey Dan, how long do you need them to be? I'd planned on 10' for the road show set. Is that long enough?

Yup, those would be fine. My room is only 10x11 but think if they were shorter than 8 I might run into some problems.

I might even put em up against my Kimber Kable 8VS downstairs on my LSi 15's.

As a thought, dont know how much extra work it would be or if it would be worth it at all, but maybe include a set of jumpers (spades if your doing banana speaker connectors, or banana's if your doing spades) for them for those of us with 5 way binding posts.

Go ahead and put me on the list if you dont mind. If you dont have my info still and need it again let me know....

OK, Adding you to the list. You'll be after Harry (Hewlew), so make sure he has your info. Glad to hear 10' will work well for you.
PLEASE DO try them in place of your Kimber 8VS cables. :D
The Jumpers are something I'd thought about of sending and I'll make a set to send along with the cables. The cables will have bananas on one end and spades on the other. I'll make the jumpers the same, that way most anyone can use them.

First off, the cables made a huge difference on my main system.
I ran them from the CD to the MXR-130 I am using as a pre, and then to the Sunfire.
My family was asleep, so I have started listening with my old Sennheiser headphones this morning.
I can only describe my old cables as noisy and innefficient.

On my HK Citation setup, the cables REALLY made a difference on the already warm sounding amps, playing through Advents and Infinty RS10's.

Today, I will listen all day through the Amazings once all are awake.
Hopefully the new TGP IV arrives before I send the cables to Chauss! \:D/ \:D/ \:D/

Chauss... Please PM your address, Ill send them NEXT week. :-" :-"

Should not be a problem if you need more time Chris. Don has another set now, so he's not needing them sent back to him. As long as Chauss is in agreement, I say keep them until you have a chance to use them with your new TG-IV. What say you Chauss????
