My monster cables just arrived last night... Also from ebay



Huge (19mm thick) and heavy... it's actually 6 individual wires per termination point.

Hi,  May I know the exact site of ebay.  Btw, may I know how much you paid for these cables?

wah sei, zhun zhun... wk 5, postman knocked on my door to hand deliver me the spker cable, it really look as good as the pic, as far as my eyes can see, 3 layers of insulation over a 10 or 11AWG wire, probably stranded, 2 layers of heat shrink tubings, with banana plugs which require some strength to push into the speaker terminals on both ends, so its not meant for me to play play with...

hookup to mini tube, first impression sound is clean and clear but dynamics cannot be compared to the Belden 1313A, again i say tis with reservation as the cable is still raw... will see how it performs after a couple of weeks....

$55 to bring it, its ok for tis kind of $.... ;D

ok, almost a week into using the ebay cable, confm i like the 1313A better, both give strong clear sound, but somehow the 1313A is more refined, separation is better.  so one up to Belden. 

the upside of the ebay cable is tat it is very neat, heat shrink cover all the way to the tip of the banana plugs, so you don't to be worried about oxidation of the wire.

Got my 1313A yesterday. had a hard time terminating it with bananas.

First look, it is detail, airy but the high seems dry......bass is too laid back.
Left it on to burn for 14 hours at about 8am position.
After all these hours, i say liao liao, i do not like this cable.
Then proceed to swap back my qed silvery annivesary with the voodoo caps.

Afternoon, i hookup the 1313A to my onkyo with roger speakers and blast it loud at some movies.
Then i play a siam culture show cd and suddenly, i do hear a different note.
Telling myself maybe the cables suits onkyo better.

Finally, i gave in and decided to hook 1313A back to Arai 6p1 with diamond 8.4 for a second try.
And the next moment i put in Jin pian Zhi 2, turn the volume to 11 o'clock and it was alive with strong bass.
very very details with punchy bass. Is it burn in yet?

No, not so fast. I hear that at many times the control of vocal is very undecide and sometimes feel like vocal comes on all of suddenly.

Will be updating after....give it a month?
