For even more improvement, you can stick these on all the components inside your gear.

I'll get back to my Tullamore Dew now...

Do you have some spare ones you would like to sell?

Actually I think the OP's risers are a great idea for people with suspended wooden floors. After you have them all laid out, instead of putting the cables on them, you could install reo mesh and concrete over the top.

An excellent idea - and cheap to experiment with.  :thumb:

On a serious note. Can you actually hear a difference with cables off the ground? I'm all for cable upgrades, but I'm a bit sceptical on this one.

I can't visualize how if you had good quality shielded cable, why you would need to do this. Or am l missing something here?

 

And what if your speaker cable is laying on carpet? Would that not negate the concrete thing anyway? And don't these so called cable raises have to made from wood?

 

Yep, l know, another round of back and forths.😄

 

Cable risers (whether it's for spkr cables, interconnects or power cables) is such an off-the-wall topic that you will never get a unanimous vote.

 

So you need to try it out yourself - at $11.50 ... that's a cheap experiment!  :)

 

And no, I don't think they must be made of wood (that's even more off the wall!!  :) ).

Actually I have gone with the free ones you get when you buy fresh fruit these days. The organic ones seem so much more...... well, organic.

Funnily enough I actually do use them!  Not for soundQ improvement but so I don’t accidentally step on my cables and to place some physical separation bt power and signal cables. As the OP said , cheap as.

What do you use to stick everything too the wall like that?

It’s hard to be honest, but great when you have to lie down after too many brews!

Haha I can barely look at those sideways photos for a few seconds...without getting a sore neck...

So frankn – you found no improvement in sound from using them?

Cheers

You stole my idea, but will they work because they are not rhodium plated. 😀

Everyone knows a tight @rse needs less paper. These are probably surplus.

I remember when I first heard of this in the early 90's, the idea was to move the speaker cables away from the power cables (especially if you had to run them in parallel). I've only ever found a noticeable effect when powering 240v (or 440v) equipment on and off - had a halon explosion in a computer room in the 80's due to wiring in parallel. Never saw the need for it in sound equipment. But then I'd rather have the cables under the carpet (and Mrs CE put the foot down - "what are these 5-inch humps in the carpet?!?").

A tight @rse would have used the paper on the toilet paper rises.

 

Another option is shorter cables that hang high.

Why not take your speaker cables in another direction - down, rather than up. 
Drill two holes in your floorboards, and hand the cable under the floor.  Will require some excavation for those with concrete slab homes.
