      Item: Chord speaker cables, shielded, 1.5 m pair
      Location: Lindfield, Sydney
      Price: $30
      Item Condition: Excellent, light usage
      Reason for selling: Sold speakers so cables are no longer needed
      Payment Method: Cash on pick-up
      Extra Info:
      As pictured, pair of 1.5 m shielded speaker cables: Chord 'Carnival Silver Screen', with Cyrus plugs on one end of each cable. 
      Here is a quote from What Hi-Fi about this cable:
      'Speaker cables can pick up radio frequency noise and feed it back to the amplifier electronics, thus having a degrading effect on its performance. Speaker cable designs use twisted geometry, sometimes combined with shielding to address this issue, and it seems to make sense. A classic example is the award winning Chord Carnival Silver Screen cable.'
      Can post at buyer's expense.
      To confirm my reliability as a private seller, please view my feedback on Ebay (you will need to look at previous years as I have been using Gumtree recently):

      Item:        Zenwave speaker cables
      Location: Melbourne
      Price:       $350 for 2.5m pair
      Item Condition: used but excellent
      Reason for selling: surplus
      Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only
      Extra Info:
      Very musical speaker cable from Zenwave Audio (former known as a Dave's cables) Handmade in the US.
      2.5m (8ft) Copper litz speaker cable with cotton sleeve. 
      DC10 audio market the same cable under their name at close to US$1000 for a 2 meter pair. Rodium plated furutech spades and Neotech banana plugs
      From Zenwave website:
      "These cables are made with Neotech’s UPOCC copper litz wire in 20g and 14g. The 14g wire is my OEM product. The 17 and 11 gauge cables are made using a 4 strand braid of the 20g and 14g wires respectively. The wires are constructed using 44g upocc copper wires that are individually insulated and braided around a flat film core. The 14g wire is made of about 1060 strands of the 44g wire. The wire is constructed in this way to eliminate skin effect, where the higher frequencies travel closer to the surface of the wire, and was originally used for RF transmission applications. This results in a clearer sound when used for audio, reducing the amount of warmth and coloration imparted by copper conductors. The result is a cable that performs at a higher level than most copper speaker cables, performing at a level closer to silver, but without the typical harshness and thin sound associated with lower quality silver wire. These cables consistently perform at a higher level vs 4N silver speaker cables and are more affordable for the same gauge. This makes these cables a very good value for the money and the next best thing to my upocc silver and silver/gold alloy cables."
